Sackboy And Tearaway Characters Coming To Joe Danger And Joe Danger 2 On PS Vita

Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie will be coming to the Playstation Vita in the near future. Alex Wiltshire at Hello Games announced on the Playstation Blog that Media Molecule’s characters are coming to these Vita versions as well.

Sackboy from the LittleBigPlanet series and Atoi and Iota from Tearaway will be playable characters in the new Vita version, and seem to fit quite naturally in Joe Danger’s colorful world. Wiltshire also announced that the game will run at a smooth 60 frames per second and that the controls have been tweaked to make the game feel more natural on Vita. The circle button now tricks as well as punches, and triangle is a second trick button. Furthermore, the menus and the editor mode can be controlled via the touch screen. 

Both games have no confirmed release dates yet, but Wiltshire says date announcements will be coming ‘really soon.’ For more info about each game, check out Matt Miller’s reviews of Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie.

PlayStation Vita Firmware 3.12 “Launching Soon”

You may have just updated your Vita two days ago, but Sony already has an another update on the way.

PlayStation Vita firmware version 3.12 will be launching soon, according to a recent tweet from the official PlayStation twitter account.

 

Our Take
It's a little strange to see an update appear so quickly after 3.10 launched only a few days ago. Some users have reported errors related to 32GB memory cards, so this firmware could be addressing that, or there could be an exploit discovered by hackers with the new firmware that this update will block. Or, it could just be a totally average, run-of-the-mill stability and bug fix update.
