Thought there were no good games coming for the Vita? Think again! With over 200 games still to arrive on the Vita we take a look at ten that you should be excited for.
Our most anticipated Vita title and we really can’t wait. 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 (non-mover)
The developer, Tom Happ, had some time out with baby related priorities and has told us that this will hopefully be out later this year. This retro-styled 2D Metroidvania title is inspired by classic games like Rygar, Contra, Bionic Commando, Blaster Master and Metroid.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth (non-mover)
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.
Attack on Titan (up)
As the first screens and trailers are hitting, the excitement for this title is building. Based on the anime of the same name, we hope to find out more on this very soon.
Hyper Light Drifter (re-entry)
Storming back into our favourite upcoming Vita games, in Hyper Light Drifter you’ll explore a beautiful, vast and ruined world riddled with unknown dangers and lost technologies. Inspired by nightmares and dreams alike.
Sword Art Online: Lost Song (new)
Set for release in November, and set in Svart ALfheim SAO: Lost Song is the first game in the series to allow you to play as a character other than series protagonist Kirito, with 19 to play as. If you loved Hollow Fragment – as we did – you’ll love this.
Not a Hero (down)
The order might be changing, but Not A Hero has been an ever-present in these lists. Which probably means it’s taking too long for the reflex-testing cover-based shooter to come out. Vote BunnyLord!
We got some hands-on with this upcoming RPG at EGX and it’s amazing. The art style, the action, the vision. It’s incrediblye impressive and we simply have to have it.
Senran Kagura: Estival Versus (non-mover)
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!
Legends of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel (new)
A new entry on our list, this game has been available in Japan for some time and thanks to XSeed Games it’ll soon be in your hands. If you love colourful and action-packed RPG games, you’ll want to look out for this.
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!
