Hear ye, Hear ye! New Little King’s Story to Grace US Vitas This Summer


New Little King’s Story, the PlayStation Vita sequel to the delightful life simulation/kingdom building Wii RPG Little King’s Story, is all set for a North American PlayStation Network digital download launch this summer, thanks to Konami. (The new trailer, embedded below, says Fall 2012, but I’m guessing it was made before Konami issued its release announcement.)

King Corobo returns for another grand adventure in New Little King’s Story that will see him leading his Royal Guard into battle to reclaim his land from the Devil King and liberate the royal princesses held captive by dark lords ruling over seven different kingdoms. New touch control functionality should make troop command a snap. Online integration will also be new, introducing features like cooperative item combining, leaderboards, and downloadable content.

New Little King’s Story has a slightly less cutesy and distinct art style, but that’s mainly because the Vita allows for higher graphical quality and performance. The characters are more grown-up and anime in appearance rather than rounded and toy figure-like as they were before. The new look certainly has plenty of charm to go around, though, so I’m not complaining here.
