Sony is banking on PS Vita exclusive Killzone: Mercenary boosting the struggling handheld’s sales when it launches this September. The game’s latest trailer and screenshots suggest that a huge amount of effort is going towards ensuring that the game meets and exceeds fans’ expectations, while effortlessly rising above the sub-par first-person shooters that have been released for the PS Vita thus far.

Killzone: Mercenary will be released on September 17th in the US and a day later in European territories. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this ambitious handheld FPS.
