So says Team 17’s Managing Director. Due this year.

In an interview with Red Bull‘s website which ran as a tributory feature on the 18 year history of the franchise, Debbie Bestwick is quoted as saying:

One big Worms game we can mention is a game for the PS Vita that we are working closely with Sony on, this will be the ultimate handheld console version releasing later this year

Unfortunately no other details have been revealed at this time, but I certainly am excited by the news, even if it is a little expected really. Superfrog HD is the next title due on the Vita from Team 17 and we have already had an enhanced version of Alien Breed from the team on the Vita so perhaps their most well known franchise was always inevitable.

What do you think of this? Or what will be included in the “ultimate handheld version”?

    While the Worms franchise has been around for ages, I’ve yet to actually play one. Go figure. May have to finally try it out.

    Pretty excited – I was close to top 100 in the world on Worms Open Warfare 2 on DS so if they don’t screw up the controls (no touchscreen!!!!) it will be a day one buy for me.
