With an all new story, featuring Keni, Jazmin, Professor Dawson plus the kids from the TV series you can expect a rollercoaster adventure once more. Invizimals are now everywhere! LET THE HUNT BEGIN!
Invizimals: The Resistance is an Augmented Reality game developed by Spanish developer Novorama. The game will be released in Europe in 2014 as a sequel to Invizimals: The Alliance. There is no word yet on a US release, but since Invizimals: The Alliance will get a US release in 2014, The Resistance will probably follow as well eventually. The Invizimals games are creature collecting games, similar to Pokémon. In southern Europe the franchise is very popular and you can find Invizimals collectible plastic figures as well as Invizimals collecting cards. There's even an animated series! Anyway, the game relies hevily on the AR features of the Vita. You look for creatures in your home using the Vita's camera and when you find one, you need to capture it. This trailer shows how it works. The game uses something called SmartAR which means you don't have to use the AR cards at all! And as usual, once you capture your creature you will fight other creatures and make it level up so that it transforms into a more powerful form.
