...and I'm back. Sadly, I missed February, so it's a two-month double bill this time. Also a big change this month, in that I've axed the European and Japanese sections. It's been a good while since there was a Europe exclusive release, and most of the new releases in Japan are visual novels that are unlikely to ever be brought over. But with those caveats, here it is again, my list of current and upcoming games for the PlayStation Vita.

So the big new release these months was undoubtedly Fate/Extella Link, a second entry in Marvelous' hack 'n' slash take on the wildly popular Fate franchise. Also notable would be Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~, a collection of side-stories for the steampunk otome visual novel. And Night Trap, the infamous FMV game that led to the establishment of the ESRB in the 90s. Beyond that Kemco keeps putting out retro JRPGs, and you have the usual smattering of indie platformers and puzzle games.

For new game announcements, surprisingly NISA is bringing over Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen, which is a remake of the original Utawarerumono game, originally released on PC in the 2000s. Degica is also releasing Nurse Love Syndrome, a sequel to the previously released yuri visual novel Nurse Love Addiction.

And I think we're done. Since I missed my chance to post it last month, here's a trailer for Fate/Extella Link:

@eccentrix: Yeah, the dev said it was coming, but I took quite a while. There was talk that it had a nasty bug at launch that impacted your ability to complete it, but hopefully they've fixed it by now.

@Coreus: Do you have a source for that? Because while I wouldn't exactly be surprised if the Vita eventually port gets dropped, the developer did take money from people who wanted it during the Kickstarter and his official stance seems still to be that he's not making any decisions about release platforms until the game is done.
