With Invizimals: The Alliance and Tearaway coming in a few months, Playstation took some time to showcase the power of the PS Vita’s touch screen and camera features with these two games.

In the video below, you can see Novarama Technology’s Daniel Sanchez-Crespo talking about Invizimals: The Alliance and Media Molecule’s Rex Crowle speaking about Tearaway.

Much like its predecessor, Invizimals: The Alliance tasks players with finding creatures, raising them, and using them for battle; unlock its predecessor, it can now use the PS Vita’s built-in camera instead of a periphery camera. The game will feature monsters with three stages of maturity and will uses the touch screen to move camera, customize their creatures’ colors and uses the camera and “smart AR technology” to find monsters all over the player’s real world.

Tearaway, as reported on previously, uses the touch screen to manipulate the world, allowing for both front and rear camera interaction.

Tearaway will be arriving onto the PS Vita on November 22nd of this year, and Invizimals: The Alliance will be coming sometime later this year.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Invizimal: The Alliance will also be able to link up with Invizimals: The Lost Kingdom, a game which arrives to the PS3 in February 2014, using the Cross-Platform feature. The Lost Kingdom will allow players to play as Hiro, a young boy who can transform into 16 of the “most popular” Invizimals, and while linked, will allow players to swap bonus game items and engage in four-player arena battles.
