Marvelous Entertainment is developing a sequel to Wii game Little King's Story for PlayStation Vita.

According to an Andriasang translation of Japanese magazine Famitsu, the game will have love elements and a new, realistic visual style for characters.

There's a new story, but the main character and heroine are King Corobo and Princess Apricot, both of whom starred in the first game. Weather and time will shift seamlessly, apparently.

As expected, the Vita version features touch controls.

PES maker Konami has signed on to publish in Japan.

Little King's Story, released in 2009 in Europe, was an under appreciated Pikmin-esque strategy game.

Eurogamer's 2009 Little King's Story review waggled an 8/10.

"Little King's Story is not the best game you'll ever play," Ellie wrote. "It's repetitive, it's lacking in depth and it can feel slow and frustrating at times. Plus it's got some dodgy politics and a rubbish save system. But it's the best game I've played all year, and that includes Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad."
