Middleware allows for multi-platform development between Sony's next-gen handheld and PS3

Playstation Vita support has been added to Silicon Studio’s Orochi engine, the Japan-based company has announced.

The platform now allows developers to do multiplatform development for both the PS3 and Sony’s next-gen handheld, Andriasang has reported.

Orochi has over 40 development tools and 12 libraries for areas such as visuals, physics and AI.

Windows-based games can also be ported over to PS3, Vita and Xbox 360 using the engine.

As well as middleware, Japan-based firm Silicon Studio has also developed games such as 3D Dot Game Heroes for the PS3, which has sold over 160,000 copies and gained a Metacritic rating of 77.
