I’m Kirsten, Producer on The Walking Dead game series, and as you may have heard during PlayStation’s E3 press conference, we’re excited to confirm that a brand new episode of The Walking Dead game series is headed to PlayStation Vita!

The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a new chapter (also available as DLC for PlayStation 3 owners on PlayStation Network) in the series chronicling the first 400 Days after the outbreak through the eyes of five all-new characters. This special episode will allow you to choose a character and play through each of their stories in any order, which are all centered around a truck stop on a Georgia highway. Some decisions you may have made in Season One will affect moments of 400 Days, and while we don’t want to give away too much yet, we will say that your decisions in 400 Days will echo into future installments of the series.

There’s another aspect of the Vita version we’re excited to confirm—the control scheme! PS Vita allows us to use two different control styles so you can decide whether you prefer using the analog sticks and face buttons, or use Vita’s touch controls, bringing a new level of control and interactivity to Robert Kirkman’s grisly world.

If you aren’t already familiar with The Walking Dead game series, it’s based on Robert Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning comic book series. You play as a man named Lee Everett, a former college professor and convicted felon on his way to prison at the start of the undead apocalypse. He’s unexpectedly freed from police captivity and meets an eight-year old girl named Clementine, orphaned in the aftermath of the outbreak. Lee takes Clementine under his wing, forming a tight emotional bond in a world gone to hell. What happens from then on is for you to decide as you control the story through your decisions. Lee and Clem are faced with the constant menace of walkers and learn that human survivors can be just as dangerous.

We can’t wait to get Season One along with the all-new 400 Days into everyone’s hands on Vita. We’ve heard you asking for it loud and clear, and we’re happy to finally let PlayStation fans take The Walking Dead with you wherever you go. We’ll have more news on the release date soon after E3, and we thank everyone for their excitement for the series and look forward to bringing you more information this year. If you have any questions about The Walking Dead, feel free to shout out in the comments but remember, please be mindful of spoilers for those that haven’t played Season One yet, but for those of you that have… keep that hair short.
