Oh, so that’s why Army Corps of Hell feels like Pikmin. Motoi Okamoto, writer on Pikmin for Gamecube, is spearheading the PlayStation Vita title for Square Enix.
After Okamoto left Nintendo, he formed his own company called Entersphere. They started by making City Hunter and Evangelion games for the social network service GREE. Army Corps of Hell will be Entersphere’s first retail game. Square Enix have Army Corps of Hell queued up as a PlayStation Vita launch title scheduled for December 17 in Japan.
