The Playstation Blog quietly announced that Supermassive Games’ Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, the so-so downloadable side-scroller for the Playstation 3, would soon be available for the PS Vita. This release was originally to happen on June 13, but it was delayed due to needing “additional testing,” according to a rep from the BBC.
This version of the game will offer a few new features than its predecessor; two, to be precise. Rather than relying solely on the analog stick to solve puzzles, you will be able to make use of the system’s “rear touch” screen. The game also makes use of the Vita Near functionality by allowing players to share a collectable called “Gallifrean medals” amongst themselves. Both versions of the game will make use of cloud saving, which means you can finish the level you started on your PS3 on the go. Transfarring is in full effect here, my friends.
For a summary of the game’s story and how it plays into the series, check out Robin’s review of the Playstation 3 version. His sentiments seem to echo many others who played the game. The Vita iteration will be available in North American on October 8; the European release will follow two days later.
