November Vita lineup and upcoming titles

And it's time for the "not quite as late as last month" edition of my my monthly list of current and upcoming titles 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.

Out this month is an enhanced port of Japanese shoot 'em up Gundemonium, as well several retro indies like action platformer Revenge of the Bird King, horror puzzle game Slayaway Camp, and brawler I Am The Hero. Also out is Advance Wars-like Mecho Wars: Desert Ashes, a remastered version of the 2009 PS Mini by the same name.

Looking at new game announcements, there wasn't a whole lot. Mainly the very 8-bit action platformer looking Ghoulboy in the west, and a dungeon crawler RPG based on the KonoSuba franchise in Japan.

There was unfortunately another notable announcement this month, namely that the Vita version of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim has been cancelled. So I removed it from the this list. Further, in trying to clean up the older parts of the list somewhat, I looked into another batch of titles. Turns out The Hero Trap was formally canceled a few years back (though they only announced this to their Kickstarter backers making it easy to miss,) so it has also been removed. Red Goddess: Inner World, One Way Trip, and Gunship X have been moved to vaporware, as it seems unlikely the devs are still active, let alone working on a Vita version.

And I think we're done. Come back next month for Persona Dancing!
