Want to know which upcoming Vita games we are excited for?

Severed (Non-Mover)


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.


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.


Axiom Verge (Down)

Axiom Verge

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.




We got some hands-on with this upcoming RPG at EGX and it’s amazing. The art style, the action, the vision. It’s incredibly impressive and we simply have to have it.


Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth (Down)

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth_2015_07-03-15_005

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.


Danganronpa 3 (New)


Long-time visitors to The Vita Lounge will know that we love the Danganronpa series, so the announcement of a new title has really excited many members of the team.


Hyper Light Drifter (Down)

Hyper Light Drifter

Staying in 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 (Down)


This is out now and you’ll be able to see our review soon. 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)

Not a Hero

It’s tumbling down our chart, 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!


Senran Kagura: Estival Versus

Senran Kagura: Estival Versus

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!


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!

This article first appeared in The Vita Lounge Magazine Issue Seven. Look out for more exclusive and magazine first content in the magazine soon!

    Still disappointed that I can’t pre-order Senran Kagura in NA yet. What’s taking so long?!

    • Buckybuckster

      It may be quite criminal for me to say this, but I’ve yet to play the first Vita game. Hopefully with the extra Christmas funds this oversite will be corrected. So many good games available this holiday too!

      • Lester Paredes

        It’s fun, but if you’re not a Musou game fan, you may not like it. I thought it was great fun, and all the booby jiggle was much more funny that titillating.

        • Buckybuckster

          It’s odd. I like musou style games, but I haven’t picked one up for Vita. I guess I have concerns over framerates and such.

          • Lester Paredes

            A valid concern. I find that Samurai Warriors 4, One Piece Pirate Warriors 3, and Senran Kagura to run the best. With Senran being a more focused (no massive map to run around) game and no enemy pop in that plagues all of the recent Warriors games.

  • Buckybuckster

    Is Not a Hero still Vita bound. I really hope so! I’ve read so many rumors of cancellation. Hopefully that’s not the case. Glad to see Axiom is still on track. And I can’t wait to play Severed which is supposedly one of the most innovative titles to ever grace the system. I trust it will be worth the wait. Hell, I want to play all of these games. Alot of goodness is on the way!
