A new PlayStation Suite SDK due later this year allows developers to make Vita-compatible Android games, Sony has announced.

Sony's Kissei Matsumoto briefly detailed the system during a Tokyo Game Show presentation today, calling two developers on stage to play a side-scrolling shooter, one using a Vita, the other an Xperia Play. Sony's recently announced PlayStation-certified tablets will also be compatible.

PlayStation Suite titles will be available on Vita via the PlayStation Store, with a beta version of the dev kit going out to developers in November.
