A time-travelling trilogy of Doctor Who games heading to PS3, PS Vita

Gaming, Tech Digest news

Budding time-lords will get a console-gaming Doctor Who fix next year, as developers SuperMassiveGames have just revealed they’re working on a trio of time-travelling games for the PS Vita, PS3 and PC.

SuperMassiveGames, whose previous work includes DLC packs for LittleBigPlanet, will launch Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock as their first title.

Written by the team at BBC Wales and featuring the voice-over talents of Matt Smith and Alex Kingston (AKA the Doctor and River Song), the game bosts ‘Photo-real’ graphics and ‘television quality scenes.’

No word yet on what to expect in terms of gameplay, but we’d expect a light mix of exploration and point-and-click style puzzle solving, with liberal dashings of sonic screwdrivering.

While Sony has initially bagged console exclusivity rights for the early 2012 launch, it’s thought that an Xbox 360 port will follow shortly afterwards.
