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?
