Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin will be released alongside a companion app for the Playstation Vita! The reason for the app and not just regular crossplay is to allow you to take Ishin on the go and integrate with both the Vita and PS3 versions of the game!
You will be able to bring your save between devices to import levels, money, items and farming!
Navigating the App:
Once loading the app and importing your save simply touch the icons on screen to navigate. Left to right they are Battle Dungeon, Another Life and Mini Game Parlour!
What does the app do? Glad you asked:
Enter an endless battle dungeon and collect corps cards to expand your army in the main game and resources to upgrade your weapons with a blacksmithing mini game! This is Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin on the go and since it’s a free app anyone with a Japanese PSN account and a Vita can grab it and try it out!
Manage your garden, go fishing or cook. Take what you make and import it back into your main game! Grown and cooked food you’ve made yourself will give you power ups in game so it’s a good resource to keep on hand!
Mini Game Parlour:
Play on the go and bring your winnings back with you! Here’s some of the games you can play Mahjong, Shogi, Hanafuda and Poker! Keep those ryo flowing in!
To view more screenshots check out the official site. This app is free so if you’re interested in Ishin and have a Vita make sure you pick it up!
