Find out why New Little King's Story isn't on the Wii photo



I loved Little King's Story on the Wii, if only for the fact that it abandoned useless waggle in favor of a streamlined, simple control system. It seems as if a lot of other people did too, but that raw excitement isn't enough to warrant a Wii sequel, as the next title is slated exclusively for the Playstation Vita.

Up until now, we had no real idea of why this was the case, but producer Takanori Murayama shed some light on the subject in a Q&A with Game Informer yesterday. He cited three main reasons for choosing the Vita over the Wii: the Vita's touchpad, HD graphical support, and better online/network/transaction support.

Of course, all of these reasons against a Wii sequel are expected to be addressed with the upcoming Wii U (although true network support is yet to be seen), so a Wii U port is probably not out of the question. There's a few other tidbits in the Q&A that are interesting as well, like an explanation of coop, and DLC plans.

Review: New Little King's Story

As the iconic Mel Brooks once said: "It's good to be the king!" Well, sorta. You might get all the power, all the gold, and all the women, but you have to deal with, you know, problems and stuff too. If I had a motto for New Little King's Story, it would be, "It's mostly good to be the king...mostly."more

New screenshots have been released for Konami's New Little King's Story, which is scheduled to come out later this summer.

I don't have a Vita yet, but this is just one more reason why I should buy one. Is anyone else looking forward to this new title?more
