The Invizimals are back and once again battling their way on to the PS Vita. SCEE has just announced that Invizimals: The Resistance will be the follow up to the previous Vita title, Invizimals: The Alliance.
Just when you thought peace had returned to the world, those pesky X-tractor robots are at it again and causing trouble. It’s up to you to capture and train your Invizimals to protect the Alliance against the new threats that have arisen.
SCEE announced in their press release:
“The world of Invizimals™ The Resistance features a pulse-pounding storyline that immerses players in an epic adventure. The evil X-tractor robots have returned and launched an all-out assault on Alliance headquarters, thrusting players into an undercover mission to save the Invizimals™ from danger and defeat their foes. Storm the interactive battle arenas where geysers erupt without warning and train your critters into champions.
With 150 creatures waiting to be captured, including 90 classic favourites from previous Invizimals™ titles, The Resistance offers players the chance to share their unique Invizimals experiences with fellow collectors through newsfeed and merchandise integration.”
They also shared some new screenshots which show off some of the new characters as well as the augmented reality fighting the Invizimal games are known for.
Very few details have been released and while we don’t know pricing or a release date yet, but it is expected to launch sometime in 2014. Until then, here’s a picture of the cover art to keep you busy.
I really enjoyed Invizimals: The Alliance and you can read my review here. Honestly, for being a game aimed at kids, it really held my attention, and I found myself playing it for hours.
