Papers, Please for PS Vita Out Next Week

We’ve heard talks of 3909 LLC’s award-winning title Papers, Please coming to PlayStation Vita for a number of years. There was a glimmer of hope back in September when a PEGI rating emerged but we finally have a release date now. Game designer Lucas Pope revealed on Twitter that Papers, Please will be out next week on Tuesday, December 12, with the following tweet:

Here’s an overview of the game (via Steam):


The October labor lottery is complete. Your name was pulled.

For immediate placement, report to the Ministry of Admission at Grestin Border Checkpoint.

Glory to Arstotzka

The communist state of Arstotzka has just ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin.

Your job as immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists.

Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission’s primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.
