Developer: Phantom Compass

So you think there are not enough Pinball role playing games on the PS Vita? Well the joke is on you, because the upcoming Vita game Rollers of the Realm is about to be released. The game is played like a pinball game with different tables where your characters are represented by the ball. Each table is a level you need to pass through and you need to use the party members that are best suited for the task. The party members/balls have different abilities. For example, the rogue has a dog (another ball) that can join the table and the Knight is a heavier ball that can crush walls etc. There is of course treasure to be found and abilities to gain, as in any RPG. There is a long and excellent video made by Joystiq where they play through the first tables together with the developers. This article over at Polygon is also pretty good if you want more information.
