Unity has announced that it will bring support for the PS Vita to its development community with the upcoming release of Unity 4.3.
The news follows a strategic partnership signed between Unity and Sony in March 2013, which was aimed at expanding Unity's support across all of the Japanese tech titan's platforms.
Soon, those with a licensed developer agreement from SCE for the PS Vita will be able to use the Unity engine to bring their games to a whole new audience.

Developers interested in bringing their games to the Vita will be able to harness the powerful handheld's robust suite of hardware features including motion sensors, front and rear cameras, a rear touchpad, and - of course - its dual analog sticks.
Moreover, Unity for PS Vita will allow developers to integrate a full array of PlayStation Network features - including trophies - into a game.
Zoink Games released the Unity-powered platformer Stick it to the Man! for the PS Vita and PS3 toward the end of last year and it picked up a Silver Medal on our sister site Pocket Gamer where we praised its "wonderful melding of platform and point-and-click genre norms".
