Telltale's The Walking Dead will be released for PlayStation Vita later this year, PlayStation director of product planning and platform software innovation, Don Mesa, has told IGN.

"Having [a studio] like Telltale, a very successful indie developer, coming in to support us sends a strong message," said Mesa when speaking about the Vita.

Regarding unique Vita experiences, Mesa added: "A good example is with The Walking Dead. We think that the emotion and the immersive experiences you're going to get there, wherever you're sitting, if you're in your living room and playing on your Vita or sitting at a café or at the bus stop and playing this, you get that shock or fright. I think that's going to be important. That's what we want to deliver as you're playing."

It's not yet clear when the game will be released, or indeed if it will be rolled out in episodes or all at once.
