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.

      Sounds like an interesting intrigation with the Vita. This game wasn’t on my radar before, it is now.

    Sounds perfect for people who are hanging around or observers who don’t want to get into the thick of things on the big screen. This game keeps getting better.

    Will the four additional players EACH need a Vita? The way it reads now looks like four people will be sharing one Vita screen. I don’t have four people near me with Vitas. Maybe… maybe I can use… Near?
