Word on the street is that you're looking for a way to play Telltale's latest adventure game, The Wolf Among Us while you're riding the bus or sitting on the toilet. Well, we've got a bit of insider information that might tickle your fancy. Keep this on the download, okay, but it looks like TWAU is headed to the PlayStation Vita sometime this fall.
Alright, so maybe something posted on the PlayStation Blog isn't exactly insider information, but that sort of noir intro just felt right when we're talking about a game like The Wolf Among Us, the latest offering from the folks behind last year's hugely successful and critically praised, The Walking Dead. If you'll recall from earlier this week, Gaming Blend's own Pete Haas really enjoyed this particular game and, in the coming months, Vita owners will be able to enjoy it, too.
For those who are still unfamiliar with the game, here's the breakdown from Telltale Games' Laura Perusco.
“Based on the award-winning Fables comic book series, The Wolf Among Us is an often violent, mature and hard-boiled thriller where the characters and creatures of myth, lore and legend are real and exist in our world,” said Perusco. “These aren't quite the characters you might remember from childhood stories though.”
If that sounds a bit cliché at this point, remember that these comics have been running for years now. So, like a hipster jamming to some obscure band nobody has ever heard of, Fables was into this kind of stuff long before everyone else that it was cool.
Players take on the role of Bigby Wolf (get it!), who finds himself caught up in a murder mystery when one of the Fables gets offed. As was the case with The Walking Dead, gameplay is mostly investigating environments, solving some puzzles, chatting up various characters and making decisions that will impact the outcome of the story.
The game's available now on the PlayStation 3 but, like TWD before it, Wolf will also be making its way to the Vita. No word yet on an actual launch date, but players can look forward to beginning their adventure into this dark, bizarre mystery sometime in the fall. And, as Perusco points out in the news post, there is a certain advantage to buying a second copy of the game. As stated above, the game has a strong focus on player choice. With the Vita version of the game, you could take Wolf down a brand new path, making different decisions along the way and seeing where this altered version of your story ends up.
