Although New Little King's Story has been confirmed for Japan and Europe for quite some time, the game wasn't officially announced for North America until today. Konami will be publishing the title, available digitally for Vita this summer.
The action adventure RPG puts you in the role of King Corobo, as he visits seven kingdoms to battle various dark lords that have kidnapped princesses. The king leads his army into every battle and manage his population, making for a strategy hybrid element. It features a new story distinct from the original, and uses the front and rear touch controls on the Vita. Plus, Konami promises incoming DLC, co-op play, and leaderboards to take advantage of online features.
