Dungeon crawler MIND≒0 (said “Mind Zero”, looking at the Japanese) is headed to Vita on August 1. Siliconera reports the RPG is a collaboration between Class of Heroes developer ZeroDiv and Acquire. Although it’s only been confirmed for Japanese release, it’s notable because it’s the first Acquire game to release since the Way of the Samurai and Sumiomi developer was snapped up by GungHo last year. GungHo also recently picked up Grasshopper Manufacture because it has about a gazillion bucks.
