Telltale Games ‘critically acclaimed’ episodic graphic adventure finally has a release window for PS Vita.
No confirmation of a digital release was announced, but taking into account the companies complete season one release with The Walking Dead on Vita, it is more than likely that digital and physical versions will release at the same time.
Based on the ‘Fables’ graphic novels by Bill Willingham, The Wolf Among Us follows characters from various Fairy Tales and Folklore who have been forced out of their homelands by ‘The Adversary’ who have conquered their realm. The fairy tale creatures are forced to living in New York City, where a ‘Fabletown’ community is established. All fairytale creatures must blend in to avoid detection from the real world, with creatures who do not have a human form having to pay for magic potions called ‘Glamours’, which give them a human appearance for a short time.
The game plays as a murder mystery, with you playing as Bigby Wolf, aka The Big Bad Wolf, as he investigates a number of gruesome murders in Fabletown. Fans of The Walking Dead will already be familiar with the gameplay, with the player choosing how conversations will play out, which route to take during an investigation and ultimately who lives and who dies.
The story deals with themes such as poverty and prejudice, and although based around Fairy tales, has an extremely dark overhanging storyline.
Telltale have already announced that their upcoming game Tales from the Borderlands will be coming to Vita, meaning that it is likely that their Game of Thrones title will also be making its way to Sony’s Handheld.
Telltale also revealed in a seperate tweet that a physical and digital copy of the complete The Walking Dead: Season Two will arrive on Vita in October.
