  • Brand new storyline is a reimagining of the original, featuring King Corobo. Fight and lead your army against the new threat, the Nightmare.
  • Full touch controls give you pin point accuracy in recruiting your army and issuing commands.
  • Many new job classes are available, there are more than 20 total jobs available for your citizens.
  • Revised combat system, princesses can act as support in battle.
  • Soundtrack features new arrangements of classical music.
  • Fully functioning weather and 24 hour day+night systems.
  • Hospitals let your fallen subjects recover instead of simply dying.
  • Multiplayer item synthesis allows for faster item creation.
  • Online leaderboards allow for players to compete for the best time.
  • Post launch DLC will include items, quests and costumes.










DLC will include costumes, items and quests.

You can buy items in 23 individual packs, which range in price from 99 cents to $2.99.

Or if you love King Corobo as much as Princess Apricot does you can get all of the DLC for $19.99 by purchasing the Little King’s DLC Ultimate Pass. New Little King’s Story will have weekly updates with extra weapons, costumes, and power ups.

Here are some examples of costumes for the princesses:

Vandal Spain - 9/10

If you loved Little King's Story you should try this version. Differences are not huge, but enough to make you replay the adventure. A great choice if you enjoy this kind of games, and fully recommendable if you don't have any kind of previous experience.

Meristation Spain - 8.5/10

New Little King's Story is an incredible game that takes everything that we've seen so far in the strategy genre and pushes it even further. More content, same personality and great Vita adaptation.

Gamereactor UK - 8/10

New Little King's Story provides the PS Vita with something it has been missing - and it's a game that will appeal to fans of the both role playing games and simulation. It could have done with an extra layer of polish, and some additional tutorials to make the many systems in play more accessible, but overall growing your kingdom and grooming your subjects was a pleasure.

Pocket Gamer UK - 8/10

New Little King's Story is a tale worth telling. A great real-time strategy / role-playing hybrid, now on the go.

Digital Spy - 8/10

New Little King's Story should be commended for the way it amalgamates several complex genres into one fun and accessible package. It will almost certainly appeal to RPG fans more than real-time strategy veterans, but the elements it draws from both genres complement each other exceptionally well. Although players familiar with the Wii version will notice more than a few similarities, most of the comparisons drawn will no doubt be favourable.

Impulse Gamer AU - 78/100

Controls are quite responsive, graphics are cute and all in all, New Little King Story is probably the most fun I've had on the VITA in months!

Joystiq - 7/10

It's a story that could have used a few more editorial passes, sure, but it's a tale that I'd recommend experiencing nonetheless.

Metro UK - 7/10

A disappointing port of one of the Wii's best games, although still a clever and entertaining mix of Pikmin and The Settlers.

Not paying 40$ for something I can't resell if I don't like it. Such a bummer.

It's a reimagining, but it's technically a sequel since the story is a little different.

Only DD for NA. Wise decision by the publisher i'd say. The north American audience is simply not receptive towards these types of games, sadly.

Not sure what I think of the new art style. It's well drawn, I guess, but I don't care for the actual style.

I'll probably still give it a rent. My poor Vita doesn't get used for actual Vita games much.

Well, that unfortunate for you. Hopefully you eventually find something you want to play. I've found myself buying games outside of my comfort zone and absolutely loving them with the VITA.

Tempted to get the retail version, with 8% cashback through Quidco it's down to about 26.20 so 25% cheaper than the digital download.

Yeah you can marry a princess now, there are dating sim elements in the game now.

Also, is it weird that Verde is lumped in with the princesses with the costume DLC simply labeled as "Princess Set xx" ? She's an advisor, unless that means she's a potential bride too..

Expecting to see a lot of "holy SLOWDOWNNNNN" in this thread though XD

Also, as a note to anyone who is importing cross-region, there IS DLC for the Japanese game, but it's all paid and all costumes and worthless crap so if you don't care much for that stuff, feel free to pick up the physical EU release.

Over the years I've wished for sequels or remakes of my favourite entertainment. Just to get another taste of what I loved.

I loved little King's story and the childish cartoony style and they decided to turn it into some sort of hentai? Sweet menstruating christ. Looks like I should be careful what I wish for.
