Follow the real life story of jazz legend Louis Armstrong.

Egg Ball Games and Bulkypix have unveiled a new downloadable platformer, Jazz: Trump’s Journey, for PlayStation Vita.

The game’s story follows a “daring parallel” of the real story of jazz legend Louis Armstrong. You will relive his life, through his “quest” to form a jazz group, his love affair with Lady Poppy, and his “battle with injustice” in early 20th century New Orleans.

According to Egg Ball marketing and communication manager Aurelie Gerault, the team’s aim was to “talk about the creation of jazz and the people responsible.” The entire team is fond of Armstrong’s music, and “they get really inspired by his art and his approach to music in general.”

It promises to offer “addictive gameplay mechanics” and a “high quality” visual style which “immerses players in an old school universe, full of colour and romantic atmosphere.” A “full jazz orchestra” is heading the game’s soundtrack.

Jazz is due out for PS Vita later this year. View the first screenshots at the gallery.

Thanks, PlayStation Blog Europe.
