July Vita lineup and upcoming titles

No almost this time - we are half-way through the year, and I'm here with another rundown of current and upcoming games for the PlayStation Vita. As usual, this list is focused on the North American market, with Europe and Japan exclusive titles in their own sections below.

We're back to having sparse details of what's coming up, with the GameStop exclusive One Piece: Unlimited World Red being sole retail title. On PSN we're getting, Ubisoft's hand drawn RPG Child of Light, the classic cinematic platformer Another World, and the puzzle game MouseCraft. The Ratchet & Clank Collection and Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment have July releases annouced for Europe, but still no firm word of when they're out in NA.

Over to new game announcements. E3 wasn't huge show for the Vita, but it still had a decent showing. The most surprising announcement was Disney Infinity, and apparently the full version of the game (unlike the 3DS version) with support for the figures. XSEED also followed up Shinovi Versus with the localization of sexy rhythm cooking game Senran Kagura Bon Appetit, while Sony teamed up with Disney and Double Fine for a HD version of the classic adventure game Grim Fandango. Beyond that there were a whole slew of indie/downloadable titles, including EarthNight, One Way Trip, Don't Starve, Tales from the Borderlands, Tetris Ultimate, Broforce, and Titan Souls. I also added to LEGO games, LEGO Batman 3 and LEGO Ninjago: Nindroids, which I believe were annouced earlier but slipped by me.

In Japan, ports ruled the day with RPGs Ar Nosurge and Dungeon Travelers 2 making jump, alongside otome game Hanasaku Manimani. Beyond that dancing anime Hanayamata is getting a tie-in rhythm game.

Finally a bit of housekeeping. First of all, I've finally made a proper vaporware section and moved Snapshot and Orc Attack into it. Snapshot was one of the first indies to be annouced for the Vita, originally meant for a fall 2012 release. Then it got delayed, and now no news for over a year. Orc Attack is a bit more recent, but the PS3 version came out over half a year ago, and the developers seem comepletly focused on Steam at the moment. Also I've removed Samurai & Dragons from the Japanese games list, since it's shutting down.

Next month It's Neppening! when much improved remake of the first Hyperdimension Neptunia game hits, alongside Akibahara action-adventure Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed.

June Vita lineup and upcoming titles

We're almost half-way through the year, and I'm here with another rundown of current and upcoming games for the PlayStation Vita. As usual, this list is focused on the North American market, with Europe and Japan exclusive titles in their own sections below.

For once we have a pretty good idea of what's coming this month, as both Sony and 3rd parties have been good about giving out dates in advance. Starting off with retail titles, we have Sega inspired RPG goddess Neptune making her Vita debut with the idol management spin-off Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection. Aksys serves up a BlazBlue double bill, with a port of Chrono Phantasma and the prequel visual novel XBlaze Code: Embryo. Finally we get another edition of Farming Simulator, with more content and features (even multiplayer support IIRC).

PSN-wise, there's the more kid oriented PlayStation Vita Pets, punishing retro platformer 1001 Spikes, a spruced up version of Pixeljunk Shooter, inde shooter Son of Scoregasm, and a full on remake of Atelier Rorona. Also coming is indie puzzle game The Swapper, complete with The Scoops Seal of Approval. As always, expect additional games to receive release dates as the month progresses; I will try to add them here as they come.

Moving on to new game announcements, May was another solid month. Ubisoft revealed they're bringing Child of Light to the Vita, with a retail version no less. Sony annouced a port The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy, well, only for Europe so far, though obviously it's coming to America. Also Europe only so far is Invizimals: The Resistance, which I guess is understandable since the US is still waiting for the previous game.

Else, indie shooter Scoregasm is getting Vita sequel, mobile stunt racer Jet Car Stunts is coming, the ex-Pixar folks at Steel Wool Games revealed the Vita as the platform for their debut title - Flyhunter Origins, and Vita launch match three sensation Treasures of Montezuma is back with a story mode and "RPG elements" in Treasures of Montezuma: Arena. Additional indie announcements included Axiom Verge, Drifter, and Red Goddess.

Localization-wise, Koei Tecmo confirmed that they're bringing over both Samurai Warriors 4 and Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, as well as new and improved Atelier Rorona Plus. And XSEED finally acknowledged what many were expecting, that they're putting out all-boob eeehh -girl hack 'n slash brawler Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus later this year. Also showing up in E3 materials is Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit!, presumably the cooking rhythm game spin-off, though we'll have to wait for confirmation on that one. And continuing the theme of girls fighting, Aksys has picked up Arcana Heart 3: Love Max, an enhanced port of the all-girl fighting game.

Across the ocean, Japan got all Moédern Warfare with the announcement of third person shooter Bullet Girls, as well as ports of well known visual novels Clannad and Chaos;Head, less known visual novels Kiss Bell and Soushuu Senshinkan Gakuen Hachimyoujin, and otome visual novels Dramatical Murder re:code and Trigger Kiss. Also there a Nisekoi game coming from Konami, but nothing's been revealed about if so far.

And another blog post comes to a close. Join me next month for an anime double-bill from Bamco, with both Sword Art Online and One Piece.

May Vita lineup and upcoming titles

We're up to May, and it's time for another edition of my monthly Vita games list. As usual, this list is focused on the North American market, with Europe and Japan exclusive titles in their own sections below.

A bit short on time today, so I'll have to be brief. New game announcements included localizations for Soul Sacrifice Delta, Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, Freedom Wars, Tales of Hearts R, Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, Arcana Heart 3: Love Max, and Natural Doctrine.

Indie announcements were Mercenary Kings, Ninja Senki DX, Curses 'n Chaos, The Legend of Doodle, Krinkle Crusher, Rain World, The Hero Trap, Axiom Verge, and Drifter.

Japanese game announcements were Liberation Maiden Sin, Toukiden Kiwami, Sekai Seifuku: Costume Fes., Chou Jigen Action Neptune U, Lost Dimension, Shin Hayarigami, The Doko Demo Gal Mahjong, The Highway Escape: Nagoya – Tokyo, Clannad.

Join me again in June when... we'll hopefully have firm dates for more of those "summer" titles.

April Vita lineup and upcoming titles

It's April, and it's time for another edition of my monthly Vita games list. As usual, this list is focused on the North American market, with Europe and Japan exclusive titles in their own sections below.

In a bit of an unusual situation, this month's annouced releases are all retail titles: Ragnarok Odyssey returns with the expanded Ace version, while Sony provides the latest edition of its highly rated annual MLB The Show baseball franchise. Atlus makes child soldiers fun again with Conception II, and NISA gives the west its first taste of RPG developer Experience with the Wizardry-style dungeon crawler Demon Gaze. Most likely more downloadable titles will be annouced as the month progresses though.

Looking back at March, it boasted new Vita game announcements galore, with the west getting about 17, while Japan jumping ahead with 19. For retail games, it started off with XSEED surprising no-one with their previously teased localization of modern day action-adventure Akiba's Trip 2. Then Idea Factory International revealed they'd be taking over the Nep-Neping duties with the Vita remake of the first Hyperdimension Neptunia game. Things got a bit less predictable when Sega annouced they'd be bringing over Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd, with a retail release no less. And even more unexpected was Bandai's press release that they were porting the previously 3DS exclusive One Piece: Unlimited World Red to the Vita with additional content but also bringing it to North America and Europe (and in spite of initial reports, it will see a limited retail release in NA through GameStop). Finally, just hot off the wires, NISA is publishing Kadokawa's SRPG Natural Doctrine in the west later this year.

Oh, and the indie/PSN torrent continues with Foul Play, Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate, Cel Damage HD, Forma.8, Galak-Z: The Dimensional, Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops, Rocketbirds 2: Evolution, Race the Sun, Aztez, Dragon Fin Soup, Hand of Fate, and Jet Car Stunts.

In Japan, highlights include the Ico sounding Hotaru no Nikki from NIS, games based on franchises like Prince of Stride and The Irregular at Magic High School, a port of the newest Nobunaga's Ambition game, and Idea Factory throwing their full bishonen-powered might behind the Vita with 8 new games and a port from its Otomate label.

And we're done. Come back next month when Class of Heroes creator ZeroDiv tries their hand at something a bit more Persona-ish with Mind Zero:

March Vita lineup and upcoming titles

It's March, and it's time to get excited for this months list of current and upcoming Vita releases. As usual, this list is focused on the North American market, with Europe and Japan exclusive titles in their own sections below.

The month starts up with Sega rectifying a their earlier sin of omission when they only released the PS3 version of the 2012 Hatsune Miku rhythm game Project DIVA f. Now the original Vita version is finally making its debut as well. Then Squre Enix not only finally delivers on their 2011 promise of bringing a spruced up port of Final Fantasy X, but throws in the sequel, Final Fantasy X-2 for good measure. Finally, Tecmo Koei continues to be the Vita MVP, bringing out Deception IV: Blood Ties, the first new game in their trap 'em up series in nearly a decade - and just a month after its Japanese debut no less. As usual, there are bound to be more downloadable titles annouced as the month progresses.

Moving on to localization and new title announcements, looks like there were over 20 in total in February. For the west, Sony confirmed the long rumored port of the 3 original Sly Cooper games, as well as revealing they're bringing over the free to play No Heroes Allowed! match three spin-off. Aksys doubles down on BlazBlue, localizing not only Chrono Phantasma for Vita but also the related XBlaze visual novel. And NIS America moves straight from Trigger Happy Havoc into Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, as well as promising us the Vita port of Disgaea 4.

Beyond the regular publishers, we got the Scoops approved Risk of Rain and The Swapper, while MouseCraft and Ethan: Meteor Hunter whips up a rodent puzzle double bill. Also excavated was a SteamWorld Dig announcement, as well as a remake of cell shaded car combat game Cel Damage. And dropping from the sky was a pair of Titans from Puppy Games, 3D retro shooter Futuridium EP Deluxe, as well as the lost little exploration probe in metroidvania Forma.8.

And over in Japan, Compile Heart revealed the rumored project headed by former Disgaea staff - Makai Ichiban Kan. Demon Gaze developer Experience revealed that the previously 360 exclusive dungeon crawler Ken no Machi no Ihoujin would also be coming to the Vita. Also all girl fighting game Arcana Heart 3: Love Max will be coming, as well as several more visual novels.

And we're done. Come back next month for a JRPG two punch with the English language debut of dungeon crawler maker Experience with Demon Gaze, as well as child labor for fun a profit in Conception II.

February Vita lineup and upcoming titles

It's the second month of the year and the release schedule is picking up quite a bit, with some solid titles in both the retail and downloadable sections. As usual, this list is focused on the North American market, with Europe and Japan exclusive titles in their own sections below.

The month's retail line up starts with more LEGO, this time a tie in to the LEGO movie out in theaters the same day. The week after we get into the more meaty stuff, with Tecmo Koei bringing over Toukiden: The Age of Demons - Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force's take on the boss hunting game. It made quite the impact in Japan, becoming their biggest new video game IP in 2013, and hopefully it'll get a good reception here as well.

Coming on the same day is also Spike Chunsoft's Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Described as a weird and wonderful mix of mystery visual novels like 999 and court room antics like Phoenix Wright (with some rhythm game sections thrown in for good measure), it locks the students of an elite high school inside and tells them the only one who's getting out is the first one to commit a murder and get away with it. Originally released in Japan on the PSP, that version never made it over. So we're getting the enhanced Vita port instead with new content and higher resolution graphics.

In the downloadable realm, Capcom makes a rare appearance on the platform publishing challenging platformer Dustforce. Futurlab continues their dedication to the Vita with Surge Deluxe, an enhanced version of their earlier PS Mobile block matching game. Also coming is 2D side-scrolling shooter Gunslugs, and physics puzzler King Oddball. And finally, another Vita exlusive - the not at all Tempest related tube shooter TxK from Jeff Minter. As always there's usually more download released annouced as the month goes on.

January wasn't that heavy on western new title reveals. Most notably Idea Factory International annouced their publishing debut by localizing risqué card game Monster Monpice, while Aksys picked up the slightly Persona-looking dungeon crawler Mind Zero. Scottish indie developer Ludometrics also teased something akin to medieval Speedball with the Vita exclusive Bodycheck, and Mahjong World Contest appeared out of nowhere in a EU PSN store update.

Once again Japan does a lot better, with more busty ninjas in the Deka Mori Senran Kagura rhythm cooking game, a new Pro Baseball Spirits game from Konami, a rhythm game centered on the vocaloid IA (who was heavily featured on the Demon Gaze soundtrack), and some kind of free to play game from Planet G. It's also getting a port of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasm, and a console exclusive port of Fate/hollow ataraxia - the follow up acclaimed visual novel Fate/stay night.

And, well, that ought to do it. Please be excited for March, when Square Enix finally delivers on their Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD pre-launch announcement and Tecmo Koei tries to lure you into another devious installment of Deception.

January Vita lineup and upcoming titles

New month, new year, and I'm back with a rundown of upcoming and recently announced games for the PlayStation Vita. As usual, it is focused on the North American market, with Europe and Japan exclusive titles in their own sections below.

As with last year there are no retail releases this month, though Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is a full retail coming out download only. Else, no confirmed releases, but classic adventure game revival Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse, space combat sim Starlight Inception, indie platformer Dustforce, and Backgammon Blitz are all targeting January releases. As always there's likely to be more PSN releases announced during the month, and I'll add them to this post as they happen.

December proved a decent month for new game announcements in North America, with Tecmo Koei once again sticking by the Vita by bringing over Dynasty Warriors 8: Complete Edition (which includes the Xtreme Legends expansion) as well as several indies like platformer Teslagrad, the Spider-Man 2 inspired swing-a-thon Energy Hook, J-horror inspired Kodoku, and AR game AfterZoom.

As usual though, Japan got a lot more, with both big new entires recognizable franchises like Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Super Robot Wars Z 3, a new Legend of Heroes game in the Trails series, as well as new properties like Compile Heart's RPG Moero Chronicle and a game based on Gainax's new anime Magica Wars. Beyond that there were several new visual novels announced, while Gust confirmed that they are continuing to port the Atelier games to the Vita with Atelier Ayesha Plus.

And we're back on track for another month. Next month promises to be a lot more packed, with over the top murder mystery adventure Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and action game Toukiden: The Age of Demons. If XSEED's PlayStation Blog teases were anything to go by, there might also be news of localization of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus and maybe even Akiba's Trip 2 too.

See you in February!

December Vita lineup and upcoming titles

Sorry if I'm a bit brief today. I've been preoccupied with other things, so while I can't put the usual amount of effort into the post, I'm still posting the updated list itself since that's the real meat. Oh, yeah, and don't read too much into the early next year/rest of the year division for download titles - most of these get released without warning and could show up any time.

New Vita retail games for the west announced in November were MLB 14: The Show, Conception 2 and LEGO The Hobbit. New download only titles were Hatsune Miku Project Diva f, Backgammon Blitz, Indoor Sports World, and Fort Defense.

New titles announced in Japan were Valhalla Knights 3 Gold, We Without Wings, Girls und Panzer: Senshadou, Kiwamemasu!, Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Winning Post 8, and To Love-Ru Darkness: Battle Ecstasy.

Onto the list:

November Vita lineup and upcoming titles

We're almost through 2013, and I'm here again with a rundown of upcoming and recently announced games for the PlayStation Vita. As usual, it is focused on the North American market, with Europe and Japan exclusive titles in their own sections below.

This will be a solid month release-wise, starting with last months surprise announcements of Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition and a port of last years open world move tie-in The Amazing Spider-Man. But the real star is papercraft platforming adventure Tearaway, Media Molecule first new IP since LittleBigPlanet. We've also got another tentative XSEED release - fast paced action RPG Ys: Memories of Celceta, but the release date hasn't been completely finalized yet and it may slip to December.

Tearaway in action

The steady flow of PSN games continues as well, starting off with Zen's side-scrolling action tower defense CastleStorm making it's appearance on the platform, as well as Bloober Team launching a sequel to their Vita launch title with A-Men 2. Later in the month, Sony provides ports of thatgamecompany's classic Flow and Flower, while Beatshapers brings over Housemarque's mobile puzzler Furmins.

For new title announcements, we've previously covered Injustice, Spider-Man, CastleStorm and Flow, since they're already coming out. That leaves Telltale's new adventure game The Wolf Among Us, Inafune's Mega-Man inspired Mighty No. 9, both of which are going portable on the Vita. Else, Futurlab revealed they're making an enhanced native Vita version of the PlayStation Mobile puzzle game Surge named Surge Deluxe. And NIS America surprised many by picking up Hyperdimension Neptunia PP for western release. It being an idol management sim a la Idolmaster it seemed unlikely to leave Japan, but I guess a Nep Nep can sell anything.

Meanwhile in Japan, Experience revealed new dungeon crawler RPG - a sequel to Labyrinth Cross Blood called Tokyo Shin Seiroku: Operation Abyss, while Namco Bandai has fake MMO fans covered with Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment. Also light novel/anime series Golden Time gets a game adaptation from Kadokawa, and dating sim Amagami gets a port.

And that's it for this month. Come back next month, when Aksys releases its curry flavored mystery dungeon roguelike Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God.

October Vita lineup and upcoming titles

Back in October 2012, one year ago, I was getting increasingly frustrated at the difficulty of finding out which games were coming to the PlayStation Vita. There were quite a few lists out there, but they were pretty much all incomplete and many contained out of date information and passed off old rumors as fact.

So, I decided to make my own, and posted it here on the site. When I continued with the list, I choose to make a new post each month so that I could look back upon it and see what was announced and coming out at a later date.

And pulling it up now, It was a pretty nice month actually - 10 retail titles alongside 7 more downloadable ones. And most of it came out as expected, though Alien Spidy turned out to be a bogus announcement, while Warrior's Lair and the localization of Picotto Knights were silently cancelled. We are however still waiting for Tearaway, Final Fantasy X, Rainbow Moon, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New N' Tasty, and Orc Attack. And then there's Snapshot, which was one of the earliest indie games showcased for the Vita. Originally it was due out fall 2012, but it kept getting delayed and there's been news since May. I guess I have to start thinking about moving it to the vaporware pile.

Moving on to this October it's not quite as full, but Batman: Arkham Origins Black gate paired with gritty action RPG Valhalla Knights 3, Angry Birds, LEGO, Worms and more indies and you've still got a nice lineup.

New announcement-wise, it was more indies and Kickstarter games in the west. After much mumbling about more people needing to buy Book of Memories, Wayforward finally committed to another Vita game with Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero, while Pavilion ventured forth with a "4th person" perspective. Hyper Light Drifter promises pixel art Diablo, James Pond 2 promises a HD remake, Furmins a iOS port, Mighty No. 9 not Mega Man, and Super Exploding Zoo an exploding zoo. There were also two Europe specific revalations, with Spanish animated movie franchise Tadeo Jones getting a tie-in game, and MXGP from Italian racing game factory Milestone.

Japan had a much, much meatier month due to Tokyo Game Show and Sony's pre-show event a bit earlier in the month, with close to 30 new games being announced. Highlights include a new Gravity Rush game, Phantasy Star Nova (an offiline companion to Sega's free to play MMO), Soul Sacrifice Delta, a new Deception game from Tecmo, Samurai Warriors 4, a Dangan Ronpa survival horror spin-off, Monster Hunter Frontier G, something La-Mulana related, five otome games from Idea Factory's Otomate label, a remake of Neptunia mk2 and more. They also introduced new hardware - the slimmer, lighter 2000 model of the Vita, and the rather surprising Vita TV, the Vita's guts stuffed in a little white box.

Anyway, that's it for this post. Now a year of updates is done, and rather than being dead, the Vita has a larger list of upcoming games than ever, not to mention exciting new hardware on the horizon. So look forward to next month, when we're graced by Media Molecule's delightful adventure Tearaway, and a new entry in a classic action RPG series with Ys: Memories of Celceta.
