The guys over at Konami have confirmed that they are bringing over New Little King’s Story over to Europe and PAL territories. The game will be exclusive to Sony’s newest handheld, the Playstation Vita. It will be released sometime in 2012, no exact release date has been announced. At least the game is leaving the East and setting sail to the West.
In New Little King’s Story, players will control King Corobo, a 14-year-old royal, who presides over a Kingdom threatened by an entity known as The Nightmare. As King, it is the player’s job to raise an army and expel this threat from the Kingdom. So that is basically how the game plays. The players must traverse through the Kingdom and recruit soldiers in order to fight a great evil. It has been described as a roaming RPG.
This is a great addition to the growing Vita library. Konami have made me a happy RPG gamer by bringing New Little King’s Story over to the West. I hope it does well so that Konami can bring more JRPGs over and allow people to enjoy them.
