Deemo: The Last Recital on PS Vita Delayed to May 2017

PM Studios have announced a last-minute delay for Deemo: The Last Recital on PS Vita.

The game will forgo its previously confirmed North American release date – which was set for today – for one sometime next month in both North America and Europe.

Developed by Taiwanese studio Rayark Games and originally released for iOS and Android devices, the music-rhythm game has been downloaded millions of times and is praised for its aesthetics, as well as its story.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Deemo is a mystical creature who lives a life of solitude deep within a mysterious castle. One day, a little girl plummets from the sky. She has no idea who she is, or where she comes from. As Deemo tries to help the little girl return to her world, they discover a strange tree attached to a piano which grows taller with each note it hears. How will Deemo adjust to a companionship it has never before experienced? Will the little girl be able to handle whatever truths she may gain if her lost memories return? Accompanied by the haunting notes of the piano, help uncover the mysteries surrounding the mystical Deemo and the enigmatic girl from the sky.

    It is an awesome experience and a must buy for fans of rhythm games. I did buy the Asia physical version, but depending on price I may get it in order to see the DLC songs.

  • They will probably cut some songs.

    For some reason, I can’t get used to music games that use the touchscreen as their main input.

  • The Vita is still getting more games than the Wii U ever had

    Amazing, Simply amazing.

    Oh crud. Is that the only way to play this?

  • Fenrir007

    I have no idea. I just looked at the video and assumed that was the only way, especially since it came from smartphones. I could be wrong, though.
