Why isn't this a Cross-Play game?

#1 Posted by af7lm (75 posts) -

Now I haven't played this game yet because I won't be back into country for another 2 weeks, but I think this game would have been a perfect Cross-Play game between the Vita and PS3. Hell, it was already a DS game, for the most part. I'm no game designer/programmer but I can't imagine it being too difficult. Anyway.. just thought I'd throw that out there.

The DS game is not a direct port or downscaling of the PS3 game. I think it is pretty hard to port a DS game to Vita or a PS3 game to Vita, if you don't set it up that way from the start. And when the game was released in Japan the Vita wasn't even out yet.

Ouch. That would be a pretty good reason... I just like playing JRPGs on handhelds more than on the big screen.

I do too, In fact I just played Persona 4 on my bus ride to work. I almost bought Ni No Kuni from the PSN store, glad I didn't.

It also came out in Japan in 2011 about a month before the VIta, and it didn't even sell very well if I remember right.
There was probably just no incentive to do it.
