Sony made the announcement on the official PlayStation blog earlier today, revealing more about the game's story and its control scheme.

Burning Skies will take place in an entirely new part of the Resistance universe, which is set during the August 1951 Chimeran invasion of the East Coast. Players will control New Jersey firefighter Tom Riley, who is thrown headlong into the action after a close encounter with the Chimeran way of doing things.

Sony reiterated that the game will be the first dual-analog first-person shooter on a portable device and will take advantage of the Vita's front and rear touch-screen controls.
