 One interesting note—the cover art displayed for Class of Heroes 2G on the official website shows Sony’s new blue PS3 branding bars, a change that seems to be starting soon for all upcoming PS3 releases.

Are you a PlayStation 3 owner who’s jealous of all of the crazy second-screen gaming PlayStation 4 players get to do in conjunction with the PS Vita? Well, maybe this will help!

In the upcoming English-language release of the PS3 first-person dungeon crawler Class of Heroes 2G, players will be able to use a PSP or Vita instead of a DualShock 3 as the main means of character control.

When doing so, your chosen portable will also as a second screen display for the game, showing “detailed information about the monsters players are battling (including what drops they have), the currently selected character’s stats, the map for the current Labyrinth (if a physical map is bought or magic map is cast), as well as the overworld map and a comprehensive player stat screen.”

According to publisher Monkey Paw and Gaijinworks, no download or app is needed in order to use Class of Heroes 2G‘s second-screen functions on a PSP or Vita.

While the game will mainly be a digital release via PSN—no set launch date is known as of yet other than “soon”—Gaijinworks will be running a poll in the near future to see if there would be enough interesting a in limited-release physical version of the game.
