X-Gen Studios announced today that, alongside developing Super Motherload for the PS4, they’re currently working on a Vita companion app to go along with the upcoming game. The app will allow for real time interaction between players on the Vita and PS4:
Players will essentially act as engineers inside of the pods of their PS4-playing counterparts. As an engineer, you can assist the pod players by reconfiguring pod functions in real-time or by completing mini-games that enhance the efficiency of mineral collection.
The app will allow for up to 8 players to play at once. (Four on the PS4 and four on the Vita.) Super Motherload is scheduled to release sometime later this year.
