Once upon a time, there was a PAX Prime Konami gaming suite, and Holly Green was invited. I stopped by during the event's festivities to get my hands on their upcoming offerings, getting some time with upcoming digital Vita title New Little King's Story, sequel to the critically acclaimed 2009 Wii original.

Featuring upgraded touchpad controls, high definition graphics, and online support, the RPG-RTS title makes the jump to the Sony family of systems but still retains what was loved about the original. Players assist King Corobo in rebuilding his kingdom by assembling teams of warriors to hunt for treasure and fight for resources. Citizens are recruited into packs that follow the king around the land (not unlike the multiple Links in Four Swords), tending the soil, fighting foes, and digging for wealth at his command. While the game boasts a "new storyline", the premise is the same: defeating the warlords of seven kingdoms and saving their respective princesses in order to reclaim the land from The Devil King.

Fans should highly enjoy the new crisp insets and smooth controls. The music, while not an original score, is uniquely arranged and well orchestrated and features a great range of pieces from the classical era.

Personally, I found the game hard to get into: I'm not a fan of the genre, and the poor translation in the game's opening sequence made it impossible to capture and hold my attention. By the time I got to the action I was already bored and a bit irritated. The art style didn't do it for me either. This is one of the few games that doesn't appeal to me on any level. However, if you were entertained by Little King's Storyyou should enjoy this upgraded version of "more of the same".

For some reason New Little King's Story doesn't yet have a solid release date in North America, but according to other reports should be out by the end of September.

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
