Rain World is a 'survival platformer' for Vita & PC

Rain World is "a survival platformer" set in an abandoned industrial environment. The world has been ravaged and intense rains make life as we know it impossible. Players control a slugcat who must hunt and collect enough food during the dry season--to survive another cycle of hibernation. Of course, there are other creatures that have the same plan.

Originally funded through Kickstarter for PC and Mac, a new update (via Eurogamer) reveals that Adult Swim has since picked up publishing rights, meaning a Vita release is also coming. "They are 100% here to help us take Rain World to the next level," the devs say.

No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either brings free-to-play Badman to Vita today

Badman, the anti-hero protagonist of the PSP games What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord?! and its sequels, is heading to Vita today. Called "No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either!," the game strays from the original premise quite a bit. Apparently, it's a match-3 puzzle game now. Being a free-to-play game, there will be numerous add-ons to purchase, including power boosts.

There's also a multiplayer mode now, allowing four players to battle against heroes in ad-hoc mode. Community events will also happen from time to time, with winners getting rare, stronger monsters. These are all free to access as well.

Killzone Mercenary adds bots to multiplayer with paid DLC

Bots have finally come to Killzone Mercenary's multiplayer mode. However, you'll have to pay for the feature if you'd like to access it.

The "Botzone Soldier Training Pack" will unlock the ability to play against up to 7 AI soldiers in all of the game's multiplayer maps. Given that it's a Vita game, being able to experience multiplayer in an offline setting is pretty crucial, we'd say.

PlayStation Vita Pets gets Android and iOS demo

Sony's upcoming PlayStation Vita Pets is more-than-a-little-inspired by Nintendogs. But, Sony's doing something Nintendo has never done before: releasing a demo version of their game on mobile.

"We wanted to give people the opportunity to get to know the pups in advance of the full game's release and experience one of the core aspects at the same time," Sony XDev associate producer Neil McPhillips explained. "So we put together the app to allow players to run their own puppy pampering parlor." It's called PlayStation Vita Pets: Puppy Parlor.
