Not sure what’s coming for the Vita? Don’t worry – we’ve got that covered and here are ten of the games that we are most excited for on the Vita!
The recent delay that Drinkbox Studios announced hasn’t cut into our anticipation for their latest title and it reclaims the top position. Are you excited for this? With touch mechanics for lopping off enemy limbs and set in a “fully stylised twisted reality” this Vita exclusive can’t come soon enough.
Axiom Verge (Up)
We don’t have a date for Axiom Verge, but that hasn’t stopped the retro-styled 2D Metroidvania title from storming up the charts and clibing six places. Inspired by classic games like Rygar, Contra, Bionic Commando, Blaster Master and Metroid, this game looks incredible.
Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth (Up)
Set in the near future, the line between digital worlds and reality is becoming blurred, and logging into cyberspace is part of everyday life. For one teenager, a harmless online chat results in a chance encounter with a mysterious hacker and sets the adventure into motion.
Persona 4: Dancing All Night (Up)
Another climber in our chart and so close to being in your hands now. This rhythmic spin-off from arguably the Vita’s greatest game is filled with 30 tracks – many of which come from the original game. Is this one on your list?
Not a Hero (Down)
Down but not out for this violent cover shooter from the Bafta-award winning chaps Roll 7 and Devolver Digital. You must help an anthropomorphic bunny to win an election by “cleaning” up the city. Or rather, killing everyone in his way. Vote Bunnylord!
Attack on Titan (New)
We have only just started getting details on this latest project from Koei Tecmo as we went to print, but the little we have heard so far has us excited. Based on the anime of the same name, the game is around 50% complete. We will bring you more news on this game as soon as it comes in!
Super Meat Boy (Down)
It may have been playable elsewhere already, but that’s not stopping us from looking forward to this challenging platformer when it lands on PlayStation Plus later this year. Revered by many, Team Meat’s signature title cannot come soon enough!
It’s a new entry for Ackk Studio’s YIIK, a colourful RPG set in the 1990s and stars eight strangers, a mysterious woman and weaponised panda plushies. With turn based battles, lots of exploration and more than 25 hours of gameplay this game looks amazing and has so much potential.
Senran Kagura Estival Versus (Up)
Climbing a spot in our hot list, the newest title in the series has the largest roster yet. It also has more moves, more story and more destruction than ever before as well as online match ups with up to four other players. A fan of Senran Kagura? Then you’ll be wanting this!
Corpse Party Blood Drive (New)
A top-down horror-infused adventure game with some RPG elements thrown in for good measure, the game tasks you with exploring a haunted school and its grounds – trying to find a way to escape. Th achieve this, you will need to interact with your environment to find new objects, inspect your surroundings for clues, and avoid anything scary that pops out!
That rounds off our list. What do you make of these choices? Are you excited for any of these games or is there something else that is high on your wish list? Let us know in the comments!
