The next Invizimals game is on its way to Europe this month, and we’ve got the skinny on what it’s about and why it’s better than the last.

Invizimals: The Resistance is the sequel to last year’s The Alliance title – the series’ first on PlayStation Vita. This new entry in the Invizimals series features more advanced Augmented Reality technology than The Alliance┬ádid, allowing you to find new Invizimals without using ARPlayCards and expanding the fun into something more integrated and seamless no matter your location.

With a new game however, comes a new story – here’s the plot situation this time around;

“Keni, Jazmin, Doc Dawson, Hiro and a bunch of new recruits need your immediate assistance! Maximillian Black is back and has taken over the Alliance Base. We need your help to take it back. Embark on an epic journey to capture the Invizimals champions from around the globe using your trusty PlayStation Vita.”

Invizimals: The Resistance will keep you busy as you attempt to capture all the 150+ creatures, untangle the mystery of the Precursor, and defeat the Xtractor forces. This is a brand new story with brand new elements (and 24 brand new Invizimals), and it’s coming to Europe on October 29th in both retail and digital versions.

Are you ready to join The Resistance? Is this something your kid just has to have?

Let us know in the comments.

PS; A North American release date has yet to be announced.

    I’ve never played any of these games before, but am interested in this now that they’ve ditched those AR cards.

    I need to play the first more as it seemed like there was a decent game there but the AR stuff put me off so badly, I like to play Vita on bed or on the sofa not hunched over AR cards on the floor. I even tried sticking them to the wall but it didn’t sort things out sufficiently.

      I’ve yet to break the seal on my cards. It was known before the Vita even released that the system was capable of doing AR without them so I could never understand why they were needed in the first place. Great to know that you don’t need them to hunt for creatures now. Looks like a fun game for either kids or adult kids like myself.

    No AR Cards? That’s a relief, to be quite honest. I’ve been playing The Alliance and it’s fun. The only thing I wish it had was some sort of in-game exploration, in addition to exploring your surroundings for the titular animals.
