Akihiro Hino enjoys the system's large variety of features.

During Sony’s Play LIVE event at this week’s Tokyo Game Show, Level-5 president and CEO Akihiro Hino was asked to describe PlayStation Vita. He thinks the device is quite firm.

“Hard like a battleship,” he responded, before comparing the handheld’s large number of features to a battleship’s large number of weapons and functions. “Almost like the Space Battleship Yamato,” he concluded, referencing the battleship from the anime (pictured).

Level-5 has yet to formally announce projects for PlayStation Vita, but a title release list issued by Sony earlier this week confirms the developer is making a new RPG for the handheld.

Level-5’s latest work, Ni no Kuni, a PlayStation 3 RPG in development alongside Studio Ghibli, will release in Japan this November, and in North America early next year.

    I’m loving the comments in this post. I would love to see any of the games mentioned above, on PS3/PSV!

    I too want those games for consoles because I want to play them in the comfort of my home. It will be good if PSV have connectivity with PS3 so we can see the games play on Tv because the PSV don’t have video output…
