Tearaway released exclusively for Vita in October

Media Molecule's handheld project gets October release date, with physical copies featuring reversible cover art.

Tearaway, the PlayStation Vita exclusive from Little Big Planet developer Media Molecule, will be released this October.

Tearaway's reversible box art will allow players to pick from Atoi (pictured) and Iota.

North America will get the papercraft platformer on October 22, with a European release three days later on October 25. Tearaway will be available both physically and digitally on launch day.

The physical edition will also feature reversible box art, allowing players to choose between Tearaway protagonists Iota or Atoi.

Tearaway, which was unveiled at Sony's Gamescom 2012 press conference, is the latest project from UK developer Media Molecule. The game aims to make use of numerous Vita-specific features, including the console's cameras and rear touch pad.

Media Molecule also unveiled its next experimental project for PlayStation 4 during the console's February unveiling.

Not my cup o' tea, but hope it does well for Vita's sake. I love the little bugger.

One of the few better original games I'm looking forward to for the Vita, this, Persona 4 Golden, and Soul Sacrifice will make up for the lacking Vita. I might get the 2 Wii remakes (Muramasa Rebirth and New Little King's Story) with these too perhaps.

Looks interesting. I had never heard of the game though. Will wait for the ratings to come out for it. Still waiting for PSVita prices to drop along with those memory cards.

Like the idea of being able to "decide" on a cover. I will give this game a shot in October.
