It's the end of April, and here's my list of current and upcoming games for the PlayStation Vita. Embracing my tardiness and the fact that most Vita releases these days tend to be unannounced surprise drops, I think it's safe to say to now expect these posts as a summary at the end of the month instead of a upcoming release schedule as was originally intended.

April was Ratalaika month, as the released a gritty sequel to the Three Little Pigs named Iron Snout, shoot 'em up Super Weekend Mode, and the Space Invaders-esque Zeroptian Invasion. Also released was puzzle game Crossovers by POWGI, and yuri visual novel Nurse Love Syndrome.

As for new games, anthropomorphic platformer Furwind is comming to the Vita, slated for a "summer" release and a limited physical release courtesy of Eastasiasoft. Demon Gaze developer Experience also announced a new DRPG titled Aoki Tsubasa no Chevalier (Blue Winged Chevalier) for Japan, though at this point an English version seems like a long shot.

Come back in May for Shakedown Hawaii:

Shakedown Hawaii looks like a lot of fun. Will gladly dig out the Vita for this one.

Hey BlackLagoon, would you say I have missed any big titles this year? Last game I bought for Vita was Danganronpa V3.
