A sequel to Little King's Story is coming to Playstation Vita. It's called 王と魔王と7人の姫君達 新・王様物語, which translates to something like "The King, The Demon King and the Seven Princesses: New King Story". It will feature love elements, apparently. Expect more information soon.

Most random news all day. Heard the first was great, just not my type of game.

Hey, this gives me another reason to buy a Vita. 
 
Something I was hoping wouldn't happen.

Damn, I really enjoyed the first game, and this is the first thing that makes me want a Vita. With such a lack of interest for the Vita, I really hope it's released on some other platform.

I'm sure it will do well in Japan, where it's PSP land.

  • The characters will have more realistic proportions than in the first game.
  • The controls will be touch-based.
  • The game will be playable in Sony's booth at Tokyo Game Show.

I would really appreciate it if someone bought it and tell me if it was awesome or not. It'll probably greatly influence whether I buy a Vita or not.

The colour palette seems a little dull and washed out. Was hoping for something a little more vibrant. Wont stop me from buying it though, the first one was tons of fun.

So what's this game actually called? Wikipedia and MobyGames gave me nothing.

@TooWalrus:

Really? That's kinda lame. You're supposed to wait, like, twenty years before you get to call it New _______.

@Video_Game_King: I'm not sure why you'd doubt this, a simple Google search turns up plenty of hits, but anyway - how about the official trailer:

If it makes you feel better, in Japan, it's called The King, The Demon King and the 7 Princesses: New King Story.

@Video_Game_King: I TOTALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS! 
 
I'd actually love to learn Japanese, but I'm working full time and finishing university right now, so I just don't have much free time to study it... Maybe after I graduate next year and I'm finally free, I'll pick up some rosetta stone or something. What would you recco- wait, I think you made a whole thread dedicated to learning Japanese at some point, eh?

Totally. I still stand by my bitching and claims about stoned Japanese girls.

So can anyone confirm if this is actually a brand new game or just a remake of the Wii game for the Vita? I've seen conflicting info.

It's a re-imagining. What I've heard it's a new story, new gameplay, new art direction "anime", and of course touch controls.

7 Princesses, eh? So still plenty of hooking up and divorces in this one, then?

So is this a download-only joint? I can't find it on Amazon, but it appears to be available.

I wonder how different this iteration will be compared to the first. I say that because Cing and Marvelous previously worked together on Little King's Story.

I wonder why the US didn't. The Wii version did pretty well here in the states I thought.

Isn't it supposed to be a sequel? Never played the Wii game, but considering how the characters treat each other, there is some background between them that makes me feel like I missed something. Or it's just bad writing :D

However, I like the mix of RPG and strategy/building. It's a retail game here in Europe btw.

perhaps I should pick this up, I kinda liked the first one, but not that much... GB needs to get some capture equipment for the Vita so I can make informed buying decisions...
