New Little King's Story
2 September 2013
Summary: As the iconic Mel Brooks once said: "It's good to be the king!" Well, sorta. You might get all the power, all the gold, and all the women, but you have to deal with, you know, problems and stuff too.
Summary: " New Little King’s Story " is novel and fun. Poor translation and small technical issues may tarnish the whole, but do not detract from it’s unique and entertaining gameplay. Though its failings may reduce its overall score, it is a title worth of attention, which further diversifies the Vita’s...

Summary: Whether it’s the rough translation, with its stilted and sometimes misaligned text, slowdown, pop-up, poorly documented features, or finicky camera, much of New Little King’s Story ‘s charm is undermined by poor execution.
Excerpt: The original Little King’s Story is considered an unsung Wii classic. It’s quirky, cute and was a delightful mixture of various game genres. I’ve tried three times to play it, but each time I never got past rescuing the first princess. I don’t know what it was.

Excerpt: Little King's Story is one of my favorite Wii games, so when it was announced that the Vita would be getting its own version of this charming little Pikmin wannabe I knew I had to give it a shot.
