Telltale's Walking Dead series coming to Vita

The original headline for this story was "The Walking Dead shambling onto Vita." But then, we didn't want you to think it was Activision's game.

Yes, Shacknews 2012 Game of the Year winner is finding yet another platform to infect. Telltale Games' episodic series will be coming to Vita later this year.

Already available on PC, Mac, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and iOS, the adventure game will make its way to Sony's handheld. In an interview with IGN, PlayStation's Don Mesa talked about how having "Telltale, a very successful indie developer, coming in to support us sends a strong message."

"If you're in your living room and playing on your Vita or sitting at a café or at the bus stop and playing this, you get that shock or fright. I think that's going to be important. That's what we want to deliver as you're playing," he added

There's no word on how The Walking Dead will be delivered on Vita. The entire season will likely release at once, and we're skeptical that the game will offer any cross-play features with PS3. (We'd love to be wrong, of course.)
