Hand of Fate Cancelled For PS Vita

PSInsider author writes: Hand of Fate was released earlier this year on PS4 with a PS Vita version scheduled to release later this year.

Meh, doubt anyone will care much, I certainly don't.

Unity needs to improve their engine for Vita and similar devices.

To those who disagree with me:

Hand of Fate "In our case, we developed the game in Unity - so making the game for PC gets us Linux + Mac builds relatively easily.

For Vita, the memory requirements are pretty steep - which means a lot of work changing everything to fit. Much more than we anticipated.

I'm sure the Vita version would have been more popular than the Linux version - just much harder, as well."

So it's a developer problem.

Christopher1174d ago

No, it's a time issue.

Developer does not have that much time and Unity requires a lot more time to make it work on Vita than it does on other platforms.

Another one down for the count on Vita. Shame.

Yeah the vita is a good device, I started off loving it but it has slowly let me down over time. Not as powerful as was stated, lack of L2/R2 buttons, various other annoyances.

It's one of the reason's theres a few great studios that specialize in porting to the Vita - wish they would of done that (rather than trying to do it themselves).

It's a shame we won't get a Vita release, guess we can always do remote play though :p

Oh man, this sucks. I really wanted this on Vita. Quite a blow to the system, IMO.
