THE BUZZ: Zipper Interactive—the developer behind well-known Sony shooters like SOCOM and MAG—today announced Unit 13, a new game for the PS Vita.

Making use of Vita features like the two analog sticks, WiFi and 3G support, and dual touch surfaces, Unit 13 will challenge players across a variety of solo and co-op missions.

“Fast action, on-the-go gameplay was a key goal for the Unit 13 team,” Zipper Interactive president Brian Soderberg wrote in explaining the game on Sony’s official PlayStation Blog. “The game is designed for players to move quickly into the action, choosing from one of six Operatives with unique abilities to tackle 36 action-packed missions across nine unique locales. Missions come in a variety of sizes and difficulty. Some are smaller bite-sized battles; others are longer, more challenging, multi-objective missions that are a good test for any skilled shooter fan. As you make your way through the variety of missions, you unlock the right to take on the tougher High Value Target (HVT) enemy battles. After completing an HVT mission, you can share them with friends and nearby players through PlayStation Vita’s ‘NEAR’ feature.”

EGM’s TAKE: While I’m sure SOCOM fans are awaiting the first real game in the series to hit the Vita, Unit 13 could provide a fun experience in the meantime. This’ll definitely be one of those games to show off just how much sense having dual analog sticks on the Vita makes.
