PocketStation for PS Vita announced – trailer shows Crash, Chocobo & Ape Escape mini games
After a weird trailer Sony has confirmed PocketStation as a free PS Vita app for Japan. It appears to be a direct emulator running the original PS1 memory card games. Somehow I doubt we’ll be getting this one over here.
For those not up on their PS1 history the PocketStation was a memory card with Tamagotchi aspirations, letting you take the thing with you to play simple games.The mini-gamers shown so far include companions to PS1 classics like Crash Bandicoot 3, Ape Escape, Mega Man, Dokodemo Issho (the game that made Sony’s Toro cat popular) and Chocobo World, a mini-RPG that came with Final Fantasy 8.
