Telltale's The Walking Dead re-animated for PlayStation Vita

Nearly a year after it debuted on other platforms, Telltale's infectious The Walking Dead saga is now headed to PlayStation Vita.

The five-part adventure is already available for iOS, Mac, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Episodes launched throughout last year.

There's no word yet on a Vita release date, or whether the series will again be released in segments now the whole tale is done.

"Having [a studio] like Telltale, a very successful indie developer, coming in to support us sends a strong message," PlayStation exec Don Mesa told IGN.

"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."

The Vita release will serve as a warm-up to Telltale's upcoming second season of The Walking Dead, due sometime this autumn.

Telltale has teased that "a little something extra" is coming before then, too.
