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.
