BioShock Vita Is 'It's Own Thing,' Says Ken Levine

BioShock for the PlayStation Vita was casually announced earlier last month. Since then there's been little information regarding the portable title, with some questioning if it's a tie-in with BioShock Infinite. Speaking with IGN in an interview, creative director Ken Levine has shed some light on the title.

BioShock for the PlayStation Vita is apparently a new title, one that is "going to be strange and surprising to people." Levine described the project as being "risky," but certainly something that will be "it's own thing."

"I think we always want to surprise people. If I'm just saying, "Here's BioShock 1 on Vita"... Let's say we potentially do, you don't need us to do that, somebody could make that happen if they wanted that to happen," he added.

"For us, it's like, 'Hey, here's this weird experiment you want to do.' Experiments always carry risks, though. That's been the experience of working on BioShock Infinite. And working on BioShock. People saying, 'This is weird, risky, I don't understand.' I'm fortunate that I get to do things that are risky, my team gets to do things that are risky."

"All I'll say is that it's its own thing, being built from the ground up, yes."
