Unity to add Vita support with 4.3

Deal made in March last year comes to fruition

Unity will deploy Vita support with its 4.3 update, finally adding Sony's handheld to its exhaustive list of exportable platforms.

Unity announced the deal to support all of the platforms in Sony's ecosystem in March last year, and the company's community fits in with the Vita's indie-friendly strategy.

All developers with a licensed agreement with Sony will be able to develop for the Vita's numerous features - motion sensors, front and rear cameras, rear touch-pad, analogue sticks - in Unity. Developers will also be able to integrate PlayStation Network features, like trophies and leaderboards.
