Thought there was nothing to get excited for on Vita? Think again! Here are our current favourites!
Salt and Sanctuary
Combining fast, brutal, and complex 2D combat with richly developed RPG mechanics Salt and Sanctuary will have you discovering, crafting and upgrading many hundreds of weapons as you explore a cursed realm of forgotten cities, blood-soaked dungeons and desecrated monuments as well as the fallen lords that they once celebrated.
New Danganronpa V3
Long-time visitors to The Vita Lounge will know that we love the Danganronpa series, so the prospect of a new title has really excited many members of the team. Are you excited?
YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG
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
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. Coming out in August, we hope to bring you more news soon!
I was wondering if the Vita would receive a Wing Commander/Elite style game then remembered that this was coming! Find out more about this soon!
Hyper Light Drifter
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.
Dragon Quest Heroes 2
Those that love the Dragon’s Quest series of games and RPGs in general will want to keep their eye out for more news on Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End, which releases soon in Japan. We known many on our team can’t wait for it!
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…
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The Force Awakens may have divided opinions but I certainly can’t wait for the LEGO game of the same name. With recent advancements in the portable ports and “bridging” content between Return of the Jedi and this adventure I having to “force” myself to remain patient!
Shiren The Wanderer 5
Releasing this summer, Shiren the Wanderer 5 follows the titular Shiren – an experienced wanderer with a weasel-y companion called Koppa – on a roguelike RPG adventure. Being a “Plus” title it even offers new dungeons to explore, monsters to battle, and gameplay options to take advantage of!
That rounds off our current 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!
