The Supermassive Games/BBC Worldwide console title Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is finally landing on PS Vita handheld gaming devices on October 9th, following a delay of around four months.
Initially released for PlayStation 3 in May, the title has undergone several delays over the intervening months. The PlayStation.com blog features a piece by Executive Producer Simon Harris (who we spoke to back at the game’s launch) revealing that the game will be available on the PlayStation Network on October 9th in the US and October 10th in Europe.
It seems that the delays haven’t seen the developers sitting around idle – puzzles make full use of the touchscreen and dual analogue sticks, while the PS Vita “near” service is being used to enable players to share medals using GPS, a little like geocaching (only without the physical record).
Another key enhancement is the inclusion of a Cloud Save option for anyone who owns Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock on both PS3 and PS Vita – Continuation Play means you can continue your progress across devices!
