June and July Vita lineup and upcoming titles

I missed June, so here's another double month of my list of current and upcoming games for the PlayStation Vita.

The new releases this month fall mostly in familiar patterns. There's the platformers like Furwind and Super Wiloo Demake, the 2D puzzle games like Word Wheel and Mochi Mochi Boy, and a Kemco JRPG Asdivine Dios. A there are a few noticeable aberrations though, like first person puzzler Neon Junctions, rhythm game Conga Master, and adventure game The Tower of Beatrice.

As I was putting this together I also did a little cleanup, moving several titles to the Vaporware list. I'll try to do more of this in future updates, as now with the Vita in its twilight years it's to be expected that a lot of developers will move on to newer platforms.

Come back next month as Ratalaika's release onslaught continues with horror indie DISTRAINT:
