Army Corps of Hell comes from Entersphere, a new studio from the writer behind Nintendo's highly regarded GameCube game, Pikmin. Placed in the shoes of the "King of Hell," players will lead armies of goblins with the goal of reclaiming his throne.

The game will utilize special features present only on the PS Vita, with the rear touch pad put to use for commanding hordes and playing instruments. The game is also set to include a loot system for equipping goblin armies to take on more difficult enemies and bosses. Square Enix also confirmed that local multiplayer will be supported via an ad hoc infrastructure mode.
