Mind Zero dungeon-crawls to Vita this spring

The Japanese dungeon-crawler Mind Zero is set to come to North America this spring, Aksys Games announced today. It was co-developed by Class of Heroes studio Zerodiv, and will be released both digitally and at retail for $39.99.

Mind Zero puts you in the shoes of Kei, a high school student who forms a contract with a sentient weapon called a "Mind," which in turn grants him dangerous powers. Kei, why would you do that? Anyway, this ultimately leads to trouble, so he and his friends need to discover the secrets of Mind as the government breathes down his neck about the whole "unknown dangerous power" thing.

It's available for preorder at GameStop, which lists the release date as May 27. That seems awfully specific for a placeholder, but for the time being Aksys has only confirmed a spring release window, so don't mark your calendars just yet.
