Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsIn today's GP Daily, an old classic returns, yet another Kickstarter game is put on hold, a beloved outlet dissolves, and new games come to the PlayStation Store. Check out the headlines below: Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is coming to Vita this Summer These days it seems like the only time you see a Mystery Dungeon game in the West is when a new Pokemon Mystery Dungeon releases, but the roguelike series seems to be having somewhat of a revival thanks to last year's Etrian Mystery Dungeon from Atlus and Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon from Nintendo. Aksys must have taken notice of this because they recently announced that they'll bringing Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate to the PlayStation Vita in North America this Summer. The game is set to feature loads of items, monsters, epic quests, and Vita-exclusive dungeons, so if you're a Mystery Dungeon fan, keep an eye out for more info on this as Summer nears. Source: Press Release Final Fantasy Tactics Director's Unsung Story on Hold Remember Unsung Story? It was set to be Final Fantasy Tactics director Yasumi Matsuno's next big game, and it even had a successful Kickstarter. Alas, it appears that the game's developer Playdek has been having issues with development in the last few months, which has caused the company to have to put the game on hold to focus on more profitable ventures. This likely won't go over well with Kickstarter backers but Playdek cites the loss of several key personnel as one of the major reasons for this. Perhaps the game got too ambitious for its own good? In any case, Playdek isn't giving up on the game altogether, but there's no word on when they'll return to development on it either. Unfortunately, backers will have to wait and see what happens. Source: Kickstarter GameTrailers closes its doors In news that's a bit more sad, GameTrailers was suddenly shuttered yesterday. Even the staff apparently only found out hours before the announcement was official, which is pretty shocking to hear. The outlet has been one of the biggest resources for trailers and clips of video games in the last 15 years, and its staff and work is well-beloved, so it's a shame to see them go.
