Kyoutou Guild

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia has released Kyoutou Guild, a free smartphone app designed to connect PS Vita players, on the Google Play store.

An iOS version of the app will arrive within the next few days. And a native version of the app for PS Vita and PS Vita TV will arrive sometime during the spring.

The application allows players to request aid from others in supported online games, such as Soul Sacrifice Delta. For example, if you’re trying to clear a stage or defeat a monster, you can enlist help from players with the same goal.

Players will be able to join your room, through which you can communicate by text and “voice stamps.” When you’ve all completed your battle or mission, you can have the results automatically posted to social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Line.

At launch, the app will support Soul Sacrifice Delta, but there are plans to support other online joint struggle games like Bandai Namco’s Gundam Breaker, GungHo Online’s Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, and Tecmo Koei’s Toukiden.
