Many PS Vita owners now have a reason to be elated. After the jump you can see why!

Before Sony’s stellar Gamescom 2012 press conference, PS Vita owners were upset at the lack of AAA exclusives for the system. Those fears have been lessened as LittleBigPlanet creator Media Molecule stepped up to deliver another home run for the platform console. The Vita exclusive, called Tearaway, is every bit as creative and appealing as MM’s previous titles are.

Tearaway is set in a world where everything is made of paper. The water, the trees, the land, all are made of paper, and gamers are set with the task to accompany a messenger called Iota on a perilous journey through the colorful paper dimension. You are more than the controller in this game, as you can effect the environment with your hands — literally. You can interact with the world and enemies using either the Vita’s front or rear touch pad, while the other unique features of the system such as its mic and gyroscope are utilized during gameplay too.

There’s no release date announced yet, but you can figure 2013 will be the drop date for Media Molecule’s next imaginative step in video gaming.
