I wouldn't think so, I think it's a seperate storyline from the console ACs so you should be perfectly ok

I hope it's better than Bloodlines for the PSP, that was pretty bad. Empty streets, blocky graphics, short boring story and basic unchallenging combat. it came across as very low budget & rushed, simply put, a cheap spin off.

The Vita has a lot more power, so it has the potential if they put proper resources into it this time. I'm hopeful, I do enjoy running around in these games when they're well designed.

In fairness I think 'unchallenging combat' can apply to every single game in the series...

This is very true, but they do at least a have some variety in the scenarios you come acros to keep things fresh & interesting in the later games. So a thought process was required. This was actually more repetitive than the original game. Anyway, fingers crossed for a hard or hardcore mode mode to give us a challenge.
