Sony's Vita has become something of the indie console of choice lately. It continues to make good on that reputation with the addition of critically-acclaimed adventure game Machinarium to its library.
The Vita version will be available on March 26th for $6.99. And it improves upon the "ultimate version" released on PS3. Not only does it include the features added in the PS3 game, such as zoom, magnetic hotspots, and trophies, it adds a number of Vita-specific features as well.
"You can now control the game not only with the system's analog sticks and buttons, but also directly with your fingers on the touch screen and rear touch panel," a post on the PlayStation.Blog reveals. "We've improved the zoom feature too, so it's more convenient to play the game in a portable capacity." Pinch and zoom, we hope?
Leaderboard support is also included, letting you compete against others on how quickly you can finish the game. There's also separate leaderboards for the various minigames hidden within as well.
