SEGA has opened a new studio in the UK and it’s first title will be a Action/Adventure game for the PlayStation Vita.
Speaking in an interview with Eurogamer, Gary Dunn, MD of Sega’s European development, said that the developer gave its staff some hardware prototypes and asked its staff to “go and play with it, see what it does, and from that give us a pitch.”
That, he says is what the staff have been doing for the last year or so, adding that they have worked on 3DS, Vita and Wii U.
“One of the concepts – that I can’t announce in the interview – we were so blown away with that it has gone through our green-light process and we wanted to make. And we thought what better place to make it than to set up a studio? We’re very keen to start and grow a production facility adjacent to that Sega Technology Group, and that’s the studio we’re starting up today.”
The concept that blew them away? A PS Vita action/adventure game which is currently exclusive to PS Vita.
“We’re not precluding it from going on to other platforms,” clarified Dunn. “The game really does stretch the technology and facets [of Vita]“. This all sounds very interesting considering the studio had the Wii U to play with as well.
So when will this game see light of day? Well according to Dunn, SEGA is hoping to show it off early next year and to launch it early in the PS Vita’s lifecycle.
We can’t wait to hear more.
