Thanks to a listing by GameStop, PSLS has uncovered that it looks like the August release date for The Walking Dead on PlayStation Vita has been confirmed, as they have it slated for an August 20th launch at $249.99.
In this system bundle, we know that you can expect a black 3G/Wi-Fi PlayStation Vita system, a 4GB memory card, and a copy of The Walking Dead and 400 Days (expect a review soon) DLC episode. Since the game itself is a digital copy, and the separate episodes on PS3 take up just shy of 4GB, hopefully Telltale has managed to compress the download sizes somewhat so you can actually save some other content onto the memory card.
Of course, if GameStop is right, this also means that the non-bundled version of the game should be available on August 20th as well (in stores and on the PSN), but we’ve reached out to Telltale Games to see if this is true.
As for a few other video games that were given retailer listings, The Crew now has an updated release date of February 26th, 2014 (a Wednesday) by GameStop and Amazon on PS4 and Xbox One, inFamous: Second Son is April 1st, 2014 (a Tuesday), Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst is November, and pretty much every major retailer is now listing South Park: The Stick of Truth for November 19th.
Just like with The Walking Dead bundle, these aren’t confirmed dates and are likely retailer estimates or currently expected dates, so we’ve reached out to the publishers for more information.
