New Little King’s Story dated for Japan

Konami’s super-glued a Japanese release date to New Little King’s Story, confirming the game will hit PlayStation Vita on March 29.

It’ll retail for 6,480/5,980 for the boxed and digital download versions, respectively. No word on a western launch date as of yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything.

Developed by Marvelous Entertainment, New Little King’s Story is set in a parallel world to the Nintendo Wii original, and takes full advantage of PS Vita’s fancy touchscreen controls.

As King Corobo, players must cobble together an army from isolated pockets of subjects in an effort to reclaim your kingdom from The Nightmare.
