February Vita lineup and upcoming titles

February is here, and again I'm here with a new version of my list 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.

In this month we see several more retail releases - NISA starting out with their somewhat infamous RPG/prison sim Criminal Girls: Invite Only, while SpongeBob puts on his superhero costume for platforming hijinks SpongeBob HeroPants. Later in the month Idea Factory continues it's Hyperdimension Neptunia assault on the Vita with SRPG Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, and NISA gives the atmospheric puzzle game htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary a limited physical release. As for downloads, we know action platformer Kick & Fennick is finally making its debut (as a PS Plus title no less), Natsume's Reel Fishing series gets a Vita entry with Reel Fishing: Master's Challenge, and 3DS action game AeternoBlade gets a Vita version. As always, keep in mind that this is only preliminary list - there is likely to be more game releases annouced as the month goes on.

For new game announcements we had a LEGO triple attack with LEGO Jurassic World, LEGO Marvel Avengers, and LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin. Toukiden expansion Toukiden Kiwami got confirmed for March, cross-over anime fighter Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is being localized by Sega, and indie games Starlight Tactics, Scram Kitty DX, Badland, and TorqueL are getting Vita versions. In Japan, Yumi's Odd Odyssey is getting a Vita port, in addition to various visual novels and a anime tie-ins like Cross Ange, Saekano and Tokyo Ghoul.

And we're done. Come back next month, when Toukiden Kiwami releases, as well as Aksys' supernatural RPG Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters.
