Psycho-Pass XBox One Game to Be Ported to PS4/Vita
posted on by Egan Loo
5pb. announced on Wednesday that it will port Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness (Psycho-Pass: Sentaku Naki Kōfuku), its Xbox One game inspired by the anime Psycho-Pass, to the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita platforms next spring.
5pb. also announced that an online radio program with the voice cast will return every other Wednesday to promote the upcoming releases, starting on January 13.
Nitroplus created an original story for the game with Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero) providing the original plan and scenario supervision. The game is set within the timeframe of the first six episodes of the first television anime season. However, it shifts the setting from downtown to an isolated island.
One new male and female character each serve as the two protagonists who face off against a new enemy. Characters from the Unit 1 police team of the Public Safety Bureau's Criminal Investigation Division return for the game. The anime's Kyoji Asano (Attack on Titan, Tokyo Marble Chocolate) also returned to design characters based on Reborn! creator Akira Amano's original designs.
In the Xbox One release, the game captures players' true movements by utilizing the Kinect peripheral and SmartGlass feature. However, players can still play the game without Kinect and SmartGlass. The title allows players to send data from their smartphones to characters in the game, and this feature will also be supported on the PlayStation 4 version, but not the PS Vita version.
5pb. announced at the Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong 2015 event in July that it will offer the game in both English and Chinese in Hong Kong.
