Unit 13 Now Available: PS Vita’s First Social Shooter

Chris Roper's Avatar Posted by Chris Roper on Mar 06, 2012 // Community Manager, Zipper Interactive

Are you ready to prove that you have what it takes to run with the best of the best? Everyone here at Zipper Interactive is happy to announce that Unit 13 is now available in North America, exclusively for PS Vita! Designed specifically for Vita, Unit 13 puts a console-quality shooter experience in the palm of your hands by offering true dual analog stick controls, detailed graphics and always-on network connectivity.

PlayStation Store and worked your way up the leaderboards then you’ll be happy to know that your save data, including your high scores and operative level progress, will carry over to the full game! Be sure to keep the demo on your PS Vita until you’ve launched the full game though – deleting the demo will remove the save file as well, so make sure your progress has transferred over before removing the demo from your system.

The team here at Zipper has worked hard on fine-tuning the experience in an effort to blend the best of the console world with the best of the portable world and we think you’ll agree that Unit 13 is a great fit in PS Vita‘s library. We’ll see you on the leaderboards!

Sony updated the store with PS3 tittles (Mass Effect 3), they are missing Unit 13 and MLB 12 The Show.

Sony, if you’d love digital distribution to work out, you’ve got to start doing midnight PSN releases of every game on release.

I’ll be picking this up at Gamestop today (thanks to a $10 coupon I was emailed).

With Vita titles also be available all digitally I can see them setting up midnight automation in the near future.

Why haven’t there been any published reviews of Unit 13? I already pre-ordered (based on the demo) and it is on its way to my house, but it seems strange that there are no reviews, yet.

Getting this game today! Will there be Gyro Aiming in the retail version? Or maybe in a future update? Uncharted: GA has spoiled me!!

    No plans for aiming with the gyroscope. The goal was to bring the same sort of controls that you get from the PS3 to the Vita to show that shooters can be just as great there, so the team didn’t want to go down any “alternate” routes.

Can’t wait to download my copy, Chris. BEYOND! We miss you!


+ BlindsideDork on March 6th, 2012 at 8:44 am said:

Is it safe to assume the price of this will be $40 retail and $35.99 digital?


+ KingLytell on March 6th, 2012 at 8:46 am said:

This sucks!!! This is the game I’ve been looking forward to getting day one of my vita purchase. I was under the impression that I could get this game on the PSN today! I still don’t see it WTF!!! When will I be able to buy this game on the PSN???



+ Nazuul on March 6th, 2012 at 9:01 am said:

Cheap Ass Gamer has a coupon in their forums I believe for $10 off at Gamestop.


+ SSMiKe06 on March 6th, 2012 at 9:02 am said:


Reading would actually help, you’ll be able to download once the PSN update finishes late this afternoon early evening like everyone else.

So, you’ll be able to get it TODAY as you nicely put it yourself.

Lol tittles

PSN what the heck…Games should be released @ Midnight, Sony what are you thinking.


+ D-Squad3 on March 6th, 2012 at 9:42 am said:

There are 6 characters but they only show 2 in the trailer? WTF?

    + Chris Roper on March 6th, 2012 at 12:01 pm said:

    It’s due to time I think. The original idea was to show everyone but their segments went by too quickly (or the trailer got too long), so it’s more of a “here are some examples” type of scenario.


+ rezen84 on March 6th, 2012 at 9:53 am said:

@ninipop why bother correcting myself?..then two posts back to back?


+ KingLytell on March 6th, 2012 at 10:04 am said:


I feel the same way.


+ Falaut on March 6th, 2012 at 10:12 am said:

Picked it up this morning and getting a little in before work. Awesome game! Nice controls. Already did the daily challenge. Fun stuff, really!

Something small though. On the online pass card it specifically states that to redeem your online code through your Vita you need to “select the PSN icon, and go to redeem codes”. Uhm, there is no PSN icon on the Vita UI, you simply do it through the store. Meh.

Happy gaming!

    If you try to play online the game will take you right to where you need to enter the code, so you shouldn’t need to search around for the icon on the store.


+ TigreMad on March 6th, 2012 at 10:12 am said:

Just counting the minutes to download this one.


+ PanteraRawks on March 6th, 2012 at 11:11 am said:

Look forward to playing Unit 13 and MotorStorm RC. Wish they were available to download now on PSN.

Sony, is there a reason for the vague “afternoon” release time? Why not just make it availble first thing in the morning, regardless of timezones, so people can get on with their day?


+ LoganSSommer on March 6th, 2012 at 11:13 am said:

Just picked up my copy! It looks and feels great!


+ KingLytell on March 6th, 2012 at 11:16 am said:


When you lunch the PS Store at the top of the page before you touch start you have to touch the little icon that looks like a pencil writing 1 2. Once you touch that icon it will take you to a page where you can redeem your codes. Hope this helps. BEYOND!!!

Not on the store yet!!

    It should be available when the PlayStation Store publishes later today.


+ Partnur on March 6th, 2012 at 11:57 am said:

It looks great! Hopefully Unit 13 will have everything the manual says it has, unlike SOCOM 4. Unit 13 looks and feels just like SOCOM 4 but I’m glad it has one objective at a time instead of 3. And not having friendly fire keeps the game fun, too! The only bad thing is that it doesn’t have multiplayer besides co-op but maybe next time! Here’s to hoping Zipper makes more games like Unit 13 for the PS3 from now on!
