Gamevil just announced a moment ago not only their commitment to bringing Xperia Play optimized controls for their games for people to play but also what titles will be coming out with Xperia Play optimized controls. Included in that list is their newest RPG called Illusia as well as the upcoming next installment into the Zenonia series.
Yup, that is correct. Zenonia 3 will be released soon and when it is, it will come with support for Xperia Play controls! We got a hold of Zenonia 3 awhile ago in a Korean version and it is looking pretty solid already. The fact that we will be able to play not only Zenonia 3, but all the Zenonia games using the Xperia Play controls is great.
List of games from Gamevil to get Xperia Play support:
- Zenonia 2
- Zenonia 3
- Soccer Superstars
- Baseball Superstars 2011
So if you are getting an Xperia Play, or already have one depending on where you are located in the world, and you like Gamevil titles, then you are in luck! No word on whether these will be separate versions of the game or whether it’ll be an update to the games already out. Chances are though, it’ll just be an update so you won’t have to buy the game again. If you are not getting an Xperia Play or can’t wait, you can always use a Zeemote instead.
