It was one of the biggest announcements for Sony at Gamescom last week: Killzone: Mercenary for the Vita.
Many gamers were impressed by the unveiling presentation, which included a very real teaser trailer coupled with fantastic-looking gameplay. So how did Guerrilla get it to look so dang good on a portable?
Well, the Vita's tremendous capabilities is part of the answer, obviously. The other part of the answer is this, as reported at European source PSVitaFront : The engine used in Mercenary is the same engine the developers used in Killzone 3 . That probably doesn't surprise anyone but several years ago, if you had told me a handheld would be able to use PS3 exclusive engines, I think I might've laughed.
Then I would've thought about it for a minute and concluded that with the rapidly ramping-up technology, it was probably quite possible. And so it is.
