Level-5 says The Little Battlers W will be the first game that supports cross hardware play between PSP and PlayStation Vita. The Little Battlers W supports up to six players with three Little Battlers on each side. So, even if you decide to get The Little Battlers W for Vita and your friend has the PSP version you can still play the game together.

 

Actually, the PSP player might have an advantage. If you have save data from The Little Battlers you’ll unlock Achilles. Save data from The Little Battlers Boost unlocks Epsilon in The Little Battlers W.

And you can get a password to unlock Hero of the Universe Perseus S if you pick up a first print copy of The Little Battlers W. Early copies also include two mascot figurines.

 

The Little Battlers W comes out on September 27 for 4,980 yen ($63) on either handheld.

    Well now, this is interesting. Cross-platform multiplayer is heading in all sorts of directions… if only it were a bit more consistent :X

      Sony can’t force developers to make a game cross platform mutiplayer compatible.  You’ve just got to hope developers have the fanbase in mind with whatever game they’re making.

    Level 5 doing the Save Data thing and holding back content like Cyberconnect2 huh? I shake my head.

    • LynxAmali

      Not really holding back content.

      They’re giving people who’ve played the series from the beginning some of the units from the first game and Boost.

      Not that hard to grab a PSP save from the interwebs in any case. (I do it all the time for game saves I accidentally delete.)

    Actually, since LBX Boost is on Vita PSN in Japan the field is kind of even.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I ultimately skipped on importing the original LBX, but I think I’ll go for this one.

  • DarkWaterClone

    I so hope now that Level 5 has a USA branch they will bring this game out of Japan.

    its not the first DIssidia is able to do cross platfrom multiplayer as well

    • LynxAmali

       ……

      Dissidia was only PSP.
      Unless I’m missing something.

        Hopefully he’s just confused, maybe he’s talking about being able to Cross-play a psp game with a psp and Vita, which is a completely different issue from what is happening in this article.

      There is no Dissidia for PS Vita. Remember that you can also play PSP games on the Vita. This article refers to Little Battlers PS Vita version versus Little Battlers PSP version. You can play any psp game on the vita on adhoc with psps because its the same game.
