Things may have been quiet from the veteran publishers, but Team 17 have confirmed that they are continuing with their commitment to the PS Vita with the announcement of Strength of the SWORD: ULTIMATE for 2016 as part of their 2016 line-up from the UK studio. Following their move into publishing titles from external developers as well as working with their own IPs, Team 17 have confirmed the game although there is a second title, Allison Road, which they have currently not confirmed which platforms it will be released for so whether or not this will be a contender for a PS Vita release is as yet uncertain.

While not confirmed as a Vita release (or confirmed specifically for any other format for that matter) Allison Road is a narrative-driven survival horror game developed by entertainment industry veterans and life-long game enthusiasts.
It is late autumn and the trees and bushes have long lost their green summer coat. Thick clouds and rain dominate the grey days and chilly nights.

Now it is your turn to uncover what happened to your family, and face off against the horrors that await in the house…
… and beyond.
What would you do if you could feel something stalking you in the dark, in the safety of your own home?
