Also, the Vita side story to Black Ops II gets an official synopsis from Activision and Treyarch.
If you're going to be plugging your big console franchise into a handheld device, one of the better approaches is what Activision is doing with Black Ops: Declassified, telling a story around the main game while not trying to ape the console experience. Sony did something similar with Killzone: Liberation for the PSP a few years back to some success.
Anyway, here's the official synopsis for Block Ops: Declassified, which should be out around the November 13th Black Ops II release date:
Before the future could be won, history had to be written. Exposing that story exclusively on PlayStation® Vita, Call of Duty®: Black Ops Declassified explores original fiction in the Call of Duty® Black Ops universe with an all-new campaign of Special Ops missions. Optimized for gamers on-the-go, Call of Duty® Black Ops: Declassified delivers the most intense handheld Call of Duty® experience to date, including both Special Ops Story mode and Multiplayer combat tailored for the PS Vita.
