Phineas and Ferb: Day of Doofenshmirtz announced for PS Vita

I know what we’re gonna do today…

Hi everyone. Today, it gives me great pleasure to be able to tell you about a new title that the talented team Virtual Toys has been working on with our friends over at Disney. Phineas and Ferb: Day of Doofenshmirtz is a new game coming exclusively to PlayStation Vita on 4th November.

Based on the smash-hit animated show, Phineas and Ferb bring their unique blend of fun, laughter and chaos to PS Vita in an exclusive new adventure, written and produced in collaboration with Disney.

The bumbling evil genius Dr. Doofenshmirtz has created a laser beam that turns home appliances into troops for his own robot army! Danville is being overrun by mobs of machines, with everything from menacing microwaves to deadly washer-dryers on the attack.

To make matters worse, Phineas and Ferb’s very own monster truck robot, “Carsaurus Moto-Rex”, is out of control and rampaging through the city…

The plucky boy genious’ must battle Dr. Doofenshmirtz and his minions across the city of Danville and far beyond! Play as Phineas, Ferb and Perry the Platypus as you enjoy an action-packed, puzzle-filled quest, specially designed for the PS Vita’s features and controls.

Can our whizz-kid heroes tackle the robot rebellion? Can they prevent their own mechanical giant from wrecking the world as we know it? And can Perry the Platypus find a way to stop the dastardly Dr. Doofenshmirtz once and for all?

Phineas and Ferb: Day of Doofenshmirtz will launch exclusively for PS Vita on 4th November. Keep an eye on PlayStation Blog for more details!

I don’t wanna be that guy… but you can partner with Disney for licensed games like this, but you can’t bring us exclusive games from your own stable of IP? Or partner with developers and publishers who are actually renowned for making games to get exclusive titles that matter?

I don’t know why you’re still pouring all these resources into trying to win the child audience, it’s a wasted endeavour when smartphones and tablets exist. How about doing something for the core gamers, you know, the people who actually own Vitas?

Suprisingly… those games might be fairly popular.

You should read interviews with James Armstrong the CEO of Spanish division of SONY (this guy know what he is doing and what he is supposed to do). In Spain alone Vita sold 600k units, and main target group in that particular country are…. kids.

So those games like Invizimals, Vita Pets, Looney Toones, Phineas and Ferb, Muppets are probably made because of James Armstrong hard work to keep support to Vita.

And don’t forget that he mentioned 2 not announced Dinsey titles for Vita.

Fair points.

1.3

They were already announced by James Armstrong himself: a Monsters University game and Mickey and Friends: The Haunted Mansion. Not officially obv.
Sincerely, I bought both Muppets Movie Adventures and Looney Tunes: Galactic Sports, I’m still supporting the Vita buying at full price every game in which I’m interested, but Virtual Toys is not very well developing games. The Muppets is really a bad game, the Looney Tunes one is nice insted, I hope for better quality in the future :)

Platinum for vita phineas and ferb? Played ps3 game really good. And yeah muppets was terrible

@madmanwithabox12
You really should read some interviews with him. He is such a great guy… compared to Jim Ryan… it’s like heaven and hell.

I mean he said himself that SONY made many mistakes with Vita (starting with pricing and lack of promotion) and that there are very few games for wider audience. He said it himself! Not some hater (as whiteknight tend to say), not fanboys, but CEO of Spanish division of SONY.

At least he knows what those above him did wrong.

@DuxCaesar
Oh didn’t know. Thx for letting me know.

I’m not interested in kids games so I wasn’t aware of those :)

Whoops. That post was supposed to be reply to #madmanwithabox12 post. Sorry.

It’s funny to compare a regional manager from Europe’s reaction to Vita’s failure to that of Shuhei Yoshida. One is willing to accept the fact that they’re at least partially culpable for the way things are. The other tries his best to deflect the blame to someone else. “Vita doesn’t need a Gran Turismo!” “Porting Vita games to PS4 is the right solution!”

While watching the trailer above I was reminded of G-Force.

If only you could team with Disney and make some games based on Ultimate Spider-Man or Avengers Assemble cartoons.

Those licenses are too expensive for Sony.

I have never watched Phineas and Ferb cartoons, but I did play ‘In the 2nd Dimension’ on PS3. It didn’t blow me away, but I had a pretty good time with it anyway. I may check out this new one on the Vita. Thanks, and good luck.

Games like this are why the oled screen is king.

“His army of rouge appliances?”

Rouge?

I’m sorry, did you mean rogue? The fact that such a glaring error was included in the final trailer for this game just goes to show how much effort Sony devotes to the Vita – none. When your promotional materials are this shoddy, what do you think consumers are going to infer about the quality of the product itself? Whoever put this video together needs a swift talking to.

By the way, I’ve over a year’s experience in quality assurance. Let me know where to send my CV, okay?

I was even willing to concede that it might have been a play on the red colour of the robots – but they aren’t even all red!

I am genuinely excited for this. I loved 2nd Dimension and Quest for Cool Stuff! Can’t wait to play this on my Vita!

Looks ok.
Still,I watch the east and cry…

The Vita is getting great support and games in the far east… And we get this in the west. It seems SCEE has finally completely lost it.

Because many people here don’t want Japanese games…

Oh, someone pulled the Japan-trigger and surprise, surprise, Satoshi appeared. :P

My specialty :P

Looks ok, gives the PSX oldschool vibe. I’m gonna check it out if the reviews are decent.

Still, can’t get it why Sony doesn’t want to port Daemon’s Souls, Gran Turismo 5 or 6 to Vita. I mean, just port these games and watch them sell due to the power of these franchises. There is no way that they don’t earn much more than the costs of a port!

Not to mention finally giving us a port of a decent wRPG. Morrowind HD, KOTOR 1&2, Gothic II… And that little Grand Theft Auto Trilogy thingy… It really isn’t that hard or expensive for that matter to give Western crowd a lot of fun. People would be very, very happy with quality ports at this point. Sony, get your act together at least for this much.

I 100% agree with you. Unfortunately at this point I think it’s too late. :(
