LOS ANGELES — Sony opened its pre-Electronic Entertainment Expo media briefing this evening by talking about its PlayStation Vita portable. One of the highlights is the news that the next episode of the acclaimed The Walking Dead adventure game series is headed to the platform.

Developer Telltale’s The Walking Dead: 400 Days will accompany the full first season and “more content,” according to Sony Computer Entertainment America chief executive Jack Tretton. 400 Days is due out on the handheld in August.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead, which is based on the popular comic book of the same name, was one of the best-reviewed titles of 2012. It was GamesBeat’s Game of the Year. Telltale is stingy with details about the ¬†new content, but we expect to hear more about it soon.
