Poké-what?

Sony’s Invizimals franchise, despite not selling anywhere near a certain Nintendo rival has never lacked scope. AR is something that is still relatively in infancy, yet next year Sony is planning to push it to the forefront with Invizimals: The Alliance.

Using the Vita camera Sony is aiming to bring the whole series to life once more as you scour the real world for 150 of them. The tech behind is also allows them to walk across surfaces and cling to things realistically. It will feature cross compatibility with the PS3 version as well in order to try and get players to interact, trade and fight.

You can expect Invizimals: The Alliance to release early next year and in the mean time Sony is planning on releasing trading cards later this year (already a success in Spain) and even a TV series which aims to pilot before the end of the year. Who said Sony was ignoring that furry yellow pocket monster?

I'm 27 years old, and have been playing games for 20 years now, ever since Sonic and Alex Kidd on the master system. I love most types of games but I have a particular passion for music games and racing games, though Final Fantasy VII is and probably always will by my all time favourite as it's the only computer game to ever make me cry!

    I saw the video that was released 2 days ago, and I have to say I’m really impressed with the way the AR works. I love how they ACTUALLY attach to the surfaces and when you call them back to your Vita you can just carry them around. Ah, if only the Vita was 3D capable, this game would be epic. 😀

    P.S. Still going to be epic though. 😛

    Next year? Oh man, would love to have bought it this year. Ah well, gives em time to improve the AR aspect and polish stuff up. Also, saves me some cash for the ps4 🙂

  • Even though this game is clearly aimed towards children I’m actually pretty interested to give it a go!

      I also want to give it a go as it’s not restricted to AR markers. Now you can just point at a surface and hunt. My only qualm with the franchise on this outing is not having a more fleshed out exploration mode. I don’t quite need it to be the PS3 game but definitely a little extra padding on the main dish would be excellent.

    The game seems to be shaping up well. With everything I want to get for my Vita, Invisimon is a pass for me right now. My stance could change however with more info and updates.
