The Vita has been getting quite a bit of love these days, and a new game will be hitting the system later this year named MegaBlast. A little shooter/ score attack style game that gets it’s roots from games like Space Invaders. Should be fun.

From the press release:

    The future of the world and your place on the high score table is in your hands. You must Blast, Blast and Blast again, rise through the Ranks and become Fleet Admiral!

    Coming soon to your World is MegaBlast! Hot on the heels of the success of Life of Pixel, Super Icon’s latest title for Playstation®VITA and Playstation®Certified devices is MegaBlast. It is an intense old skool score-attack shooter game. You as the player must be ready to face down the waves of fiery Alien Death! With a wide variety of enemy types and malevolent bosses, an extensive upgrade system, intense gameplay and glowing retro arcade visuals. “We love the old cabinet games such as Galaga, Xevious, Moon Cresta, and of course Space Invaders, so we wanted to produce a title influenced by these classic games” commented Richard Hill-Whittall, Super Icon’s Creative Director.

    Currently in the final phase of approval, MegaBlast will be available to purchase from the PlayStation®Mobile Store for Playstation®VITA and Playstation®Certified devices early Q2 2013.
