Thought there were no Vita games to get excited about? We are back with our list of ten upcoming Vita games (updated for January) that we can’t wait to play!
With over 250 games currently in development for the Vita you could be looking for ideas or suggestions on what to grab in the coming months, and thankfully we are here to help you! These games are all slated to arrive in the coming months – are any of these on your radar?
Editor’s note – this feature is adapted from our Magazine, and as such did include Roll 7’s Not A Hero, which we know has been cancelled, so if you were wondering why only nine titles are listed, that’s why. Not because we can’t count!
Still 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.
New Danganronpa V3 (non-mover)
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, and as this post was written a few details are starting to trickle out. Are you excited?
YIIK (non mover)
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, and it’s getting closer each month!
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.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth (down)
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. This releases next week– have you pre-ordered yet?
Axiom Verge (up)
The developer, Tom Happ, had some time out with baby related priorities and has told us that this will hopefully be out early in the new year. This retro-styled 2D Metroidvania title is inspired by classic games like Rygar, Contra, Bionic Commando, Blaster Master and Metroid.
Darkest Dungeon (new)
Darkest Dungeon is an uncompromising experience which puts you in charge of a crew of fallible workers with a system of quirks and possibilities which can lead to many vastly different results…
Hyper Light Drifter (re-entry or up)
Returning to 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.
Day of the Tentacle Remastered (new)
Day of the Tentacle Remastered is a mind-bending, time-travelling, puzzle-adventure originally from the 1990s which sees three unlikely friends work together to prevent an evil, mutated purple tentacle from taking over the world!
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!
