DrinkBox Studios has revealed new details regarding its upcoming PlayStation Vita-exclusive puzzle-platformer Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack.

Like its PlayStation 3 predecessor title Tales From Space: About a Blob, Mutant Blobs Attack's side-scrolling gameplay focuses on character growth via Katamari Damacy-like object accumulation. The sequel uses the Vita's hardware to create a more puzzle-like experience, however -- players can use the Vita's touch screen to move environmental objects, and can tap the rear touch panel to apply boost during flight sequences.

DrinkBox describes additional powerups and tilt-based bonus levels in its PlayStation Blog post, and delivers what I choose to interpret as a sick burn to Michael Jackson: The Experience in the process. Mutant Blobs Attack is scheduled for a first-quarter release as a PlayStation Network digital download in North America and Europe.
