The game stars a new character, Iota, who adventures through a 3D paper world as players interact through the Vita's touch pad.
For example, players can tap on the rear touch panel to poke their finger through the environment and defeat enemies or solve puzzles.
In addition to touch interactions, the game will also use tilt for puzzle solving.
The game is the next title from LittleBigPlanet creators Media Molecule, which describes the game as a "buddy movie" between the player and Iota on the Vita screen.
