Awesome thread as always, Vita made up most of my game time last year, I've now just about passed 300 physical releases and who knows how many digital titles and I won't be slowing down anytime soon!

Also are Isaac Afterbirth and Mercenary Kings still happening? Lol.

Can anyone sell me on Dex or Exile's End? Those look interesting.

No word on Afterbirth. Merc Kings dev showed an update not too long ago on Twitter showing the Vita version is still coming, hopefully due this year :)

Exiles End is actually the game I'm playing at the moment. It starts off slowly as your really weak. You have no gun and even seemingly trivial falls damage you (and you don't exactly start with lots of health). Early on you'll manage to get suit upgrades and your first gun and the game really opens up - being able to fight back lets you explore far deeper into the game and you'll quickly start getting stronger and stronger. Its a decent Metroidvania game that I've seen described as a homage to 90's PC action/adventure titles. Not the best Metroidvania title for the platform, but its certainly really fun from my experience so far.

I'm going to be "that person"

In Released Games (which I admit, I personally think should contain games that get released this year rather than games that have ever been released) you list Space Hulk Ascension.
This is a separate game from Space Hulk, and only came out for the PS4 not the Vita.

In Japan Only Games (which I also think should probably only contain games due this year) you list Gundam Breaker 3, SD Gundam G Generation Genesis, Dead or Alive Extreme 3, and Deemo which have English Asian releases.
You also list Super Robot Wars V which has had an Asian-English release confirmed.

You also have stuff like Gundam Conquest V, Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Fortress, World End Eclipse, and Judas Code where the servers have been shut down.

In Upcoming Games you list Minutes, which came out in February 2015.
You also list Airship Q. The Japanese release has an English patch, and the English version has released on PC - if it was going to come out as an actual English Vita Version I think it probably would have.

Also in Upcoming Games you list a load of stuff that isn't going to happen. I can give you a list of stuff that I believe hasn't had any updates since 2014 if you want, as that's a few years back now, but I'm not listing that here. I'm just going to list the ones that I believe have slightly more concrete reasons for not happening than a lack of even remotely recent updates.

Baboon - It came out in January 2015 (in Europe) and July 2015 (in Japan). If it was going to come out in the US it would have by now.

C-Wars - Reviews of the steam version say it's been abandoned.

Death Ray Manta - I'd say it hadn't been heard from since 2013 but that would be a lie because an entire 2 years after it was announced it still didn't necessarily know what it's going to be. Over at bagfullofwrong the original Death Ray Manta and the android version are free but unsupported downloads, so I can't imagine a Vita one is being worked on.

Kura - I can't even find what this is. That might not be a good reason to think it isn't happening, but surely if it was I'd be able to find something :x

LOUD on Planet X - Said on facebook that "the port to Vita is indefinitely delayed at this time"

Paneuropa - I think this was meant to be a PSMobile title before that went kaput. I don't think it was ever meant to be a full vita title.

Play Kiseki untitled game - I'm not sure what it is and I can't find any reference to it in anything other than these threads atm.

Project Phoenix - It's never going to happen. Okay, okay, it's "delayed until 2018" ... but seriously, it's never going to happen. And even if it is, 2018 is next year ;)

SilverQuest: Gaiden (what you have listed as "Miniflake") - The PC version has been in Early Access since December 2014 and steam reviews suggest it's been abandoned.

Skeleton Rider - It came out in July 2014 (In Europe). The lack of US release might be due to this claim that the game rips someone else off. Anyway, it's been two years. It ain't coming.

Super Forget-Me-Not - Okay, so his old blog is gone. The new one (that started in November) doesn't mention SFMN but it's not listed under games, and before it was gone it said "this is taking forever. i'm still keen but haven't really worked on it for ages..."
(I made note of it back in August but seemingly didn't make note of the actual date he wrote it, if it ever said)

Vacant Sky Awakening - There was always some weird engine trouble. The PC Version has 3 Acts available for preorder and dated 2 years ago. It's not looking promising.

Before someone complains about this or that error, some mistakes at the beginning are inevitable, i want to see anyone here compiling a 200+ games list without errors, give it some time and FadyK will fix all the eventual errors. ;)

Ah, my mistake.

Realistically though I'd say the "released games" probably deserves just a link to previous threads on the topic as just hundreds of pictures in a row in two separate posts is not really doing anyone any favors.

About Afterbirth, well, I figured. But wow, I seriously expected Mercs to be dead. I remember waiting patiently for the Vita release but getting a PS4 while waiting and since it's a PS+ game I have it there waiting to be played... But I could wait a little more for portable goodness.

And thanks for the impressions! Sounds good enough to me, and it seems to be cheap, so I'll probably get it soon.

Well after reading that very long OP in full, I totally forgot about NightCry, I definitely think that isn't coming now, not heard a thing about it in what seems like ages. Also, I really doubt any of the Telltale stuff is coming now since they seem to have abandoned the platform altogether.

this is really it as far as major releases coming out physically or digitally thanks to the ps4 and likely switch. next year will probably be a mostly digital affair aside from some holdouts (idea factory and gaijinworks?) and limited run games, as long as sony still allows vita physical games to exist. the psn store for vita will probably continue to exist until 2019 when the ps5 is released.

it's pretty clear if we can see what's going on in japan. in recent years, that's where the most physical ps vita games have been coming from. if the source dries up in japan, and gamestop doesn't carry physical vita anymore, then that's the ballgame.

it's true i thought the market would dry up completely at a faster rate, but the type of support i predicted would dry up has been mostly on point. 2015 did turn out to be the last hurrah for exclusive games on the machine with 'big name franchises' (as far as vita is concerned) in persona 4 dancing all night and danganronpa another episode. 2016 did have some exclusives - criminal girls 2... and maybe a couple others i can't remember, but at that point localizations and physical releases were only happening thanks to steam, ps4, or in the rare case, ps3 (steinsgate, trails of cold steel ii). this is the current state of the vita until japan stops caring, or gamestop stops carrying games, forcing developers to go all digital or no game at all.

i think without digital, the platform would have been dead years ago. it's actually a testament to the fanbase that it's stuck around so long, and you kind of have to tip your hat to sony for at least allowing third-parties to keep making stuff for it even if siea hates the machine and what it represents.

So i guess Vita's version of bloodstained is far away from being a reality. Closing Vita's life with a nice castlevania clone could be great but it is not meant t be.


@Fady
Man everytime i see your new updates i see a new game i never saw before so thanks for that!

@VitaCats and Vitadogs
Its been a long time since i bought my vita and i have almost 300 games retail included (about 60) this is one of the few consoles i bought so many games for. And is in my top 3 of favorite portable consoles.
I think this might be the last year were we will see lots of releases . we will also see lots of cancelled games and probably and hopefully lots of surprises .
The Vita community went from healthy to toxic , and then backwards. I think we are in the middle , we are in the part were we are seeing a reality a possible vita successor , not from sony. I think if devs get into the Switch development we will see the Vita demographic going towards that portable hybrid. and thats not wrong or bad. I had the 3ds at launch but never enjoy it quite as much as my vita ( it is because of the games i prefer to play , the console is amazing)
So im hoping to see you all enjoying the last ride for this console as much as i will do.
Also my backlog will last for at least 3 years more. I have a lot to play.

So Happy new year to all of you

Hi guys! Thanks a LOT for the lovely feedback; I have already responded to all of you with feedback (refer to the below answers) and I also updated the thread. I mainly removed 150 titles from the "previously released games" and left around a 100 of them for would-be Vita owners (or even current Vita owners) who want a handy screenshot guide of some of the more recently released Vita games. I removed some of the "cancelled" games as well as some of the older Japanese games which likely have no chance of being localized.

Much love and feel free to send me feedback anytime :)

Just a Vita fan at heart who felt the platform had a far bigger library, quantitatively and qualitatively, than its given credit for so I wanted to help highlight these titles.

That said, of all that stuff there's about a dozen games in there that are right up my alley:

Bloodstained
BlackWitchCraft
Cross Reverie
Valkyria Revolutions
Regalia
Fallen Legion
Oceanhorn
Caligula
Fate/Extella
Night Cry
Zodiac
Heart Forth Alicia

I think realistically only 2/3 of that list will actually see release on Vita, but one can hope!

Hi moofers :D Thanks for the kind words. I heavily modified the list to make it more relevant to recent releases; feel free to share any further feedback if you had any ;D

So many games I'm looking forward to though, 2017 looks like a good year for the Vita.

Welcome aboard redcrayon :D I updated the list, should you have any feedback, do let me know bud ;D

Thanks for the kind words Kresnik, and right you are! I trimmed off around 150 games from the "recently" released games and around 30-50 or so from the Japanese list. Removed Betty Boop and the Telltale games as well.

- In 2008 he releases Eternity's Child, this time on Steam instead of WiiWare because ????. In the 9 years it's been out it has been one of the lowest reviewing games on Steam and has sold a total of 10,000 copies.
- Around 2012 he announces, again, Imagination is the Only Escape, and runs an IndieGoGo asking for a few hundred thousand dollars. He gets something like $5000, maybe 2-3% of what he asks for. The game is not announced for Vita.
- A year later he posts the screenshot Fady K uses in the OP, which depicts... well, actually, not the holocaust, rather the german occupation of France, but let's not let the apparently lack of historical research get in the way of things.
- Around the same time he posts that the game is coming to Vita.
- 2014, 2015, 2016 go by with no updates.

- In November, 2016, yet another Luc Bernard team announces Plague Road, a Roguelike for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Vita. They try to raise about $25,000 and get about $50,000. They show off at PSX and have a partnership with Limited Run Games. I'm not going to say whether or not I think Plague Road will get finished and released, but does this suggest that Imagination is the Only Escape (a 2008 title revived in 2012) is under active development and actually going to release on Vita?

Reading over your post Stump, and I'm having serious doubts this will get released. I'll have it removed for now, thanks ^^

Play Kiseki untitled game - I'm not sure what it is and I can't find any reference to it in anything other than these threads atm.

Project Phoenix - It's never going to happen. Okay, okay, it's "delayed until 2018" ... but seriously, it's never going to happen. And even if it is, 2018 is next year ;)

SilverQuest: Gaiden (what you have listed as "Miniflake") - The PC version has been in Early Access since December 2014 and steam reviews suggest it's been abandoned.

Skeleton Rider - It came out in July 2014 (In Europe). The lack of US release might be due to this claim that the game rips someone else off. Anyway, it's been two years. It ain't coming.

Super Forget-Me-Not - Okay, so his old blog is gone. The new one (that started in November) doesn't mention SFMN but it's not listed under games, and before it was gone it said "this is taking forever. i'm still keen but haven't really worked on it for ages..."
(I made note of it back in August but seemingly didn't make note of the actual date he wrote it, if it ever said)

Vacant Sky Awakening - There was always some weird engine trouble. The PC Version has 3 Acts available for preorder and dated 2 years ago. It's not looking promising.

Hey there Ephidel - thanks a lot for being that person, your feedback has been most helpful! And I mean VERY helpful. Cleaned up much of the upcoming games list thanks to you! I did keep Project Phoenix cause this is the 2017 edition of an upcoming games for Vita thread rather than upcoming games for the vita in 2017 only. Thanks a LOT for your lovely feedback.

Thank you very, very much for the kind words jjasso21! I cleaned up the list a lot and will regularly update the thread with news of upcoming games as i'm sure many of the awesome Vita fans in this thread will too :D

I agree with you about the telltale stuff, though the nightcry devs told me to stay tuned for the Vita version of the game, here's hoping...

Thanks dangerblade - i'll take your word for it ;D It has been removed.

@Fady

Thank you so very much incpdo, always nice to see you around the Vita threads friend :) I cleaned up the list so hopefully the new list is far more accurate ;D

But like others already mentioned, the list is full of games that already released. So shouldn't they be removed from a list of upcoming games?

Thanks for the kind words yaffi; trimmed the list a lot more, let me know if you guys have any other feedback ;D

They reconfirmed it for Q1 2017 at PSX. I reeaaaally hope the port will be good, can't wait to pick it back up.

Another great update Fady. A few of my suggestions:

- Remove Gundam Breaker 3 & SD Gundam from upcoming games. They've already released in Asia (Gundam Breaker released nearly a year ago) and there's no word on a western release. I think it's safe to assume these are Asia-only.

- You have Siralim 2 & Defender's Quest DX on twice.

- I can't find the tweet, but I asked the devs of "Smash Derby" if the game was still coming and they said it was on indefinite hold while they work on other projects. So I'd guess that's cancelled.

- Warlocks vs. Shadows released August 2015 on Steam. No update on console versions since then. Devs seem to have moved onto other projects. I'd assume it's gone.

- Cubikolor was supposed to released in February 2016. It's now a year late, no updates and has already released on PS4/XB1. Not looking good.

- The last update on Revenge of the Titans was May 2014 when Curve Digital said they were splitting the original double-release with Titan Attacks into two single releases. Two and a half years later, it's not here.

- Wilderness was announced in 2014 with a couple of screenshots and no word since. Red flag for me, doubt it even exists. I'd say the same about Exorcism - developer hasn't updated their twitter since 2015 and even then, they weren't tweeting about that game lol.

- Similarly the last updates for Echoes; Starlit Adventures & A Clumsy Adventure are all from 2014 with no word since. We need a cut off point where if the dev goes silent, assume the worst (which is nearly always true).

- Minecraft Story Mode I would put in the boat with Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones in "assume it's not coming unless we see some damn evidence".

- DriveDriveDrive is "indefinitely postponed"

- Action Henk - like 8 months since it released on other platforms, Vita no longer listed on their website etc.

- 2 fast 4 gnomz - can't find any evidence of this being announced for Vita?

- Outpost 13 - game released like a year and a half ago on Steam to pretty middling reviews, no updates since, assume the worst.

There's more in there that need trimming based on how long it's been with absolutely 0 updates imo, don't have time to do it now :(

Any good haunting sci-fi game like The Swapper? Had a good blend of puzzles and rich atmosphere.

Is Vita the portable console with the largest support ever?

Good lord no. There isn't a proper way to express the amount of support that the DS had in its heyday. At least in Japan, the amount of releases that platform got was simply mind blowing, in part because it was existed in a pre-smartphone world where the DS was able to become something more than a gaming device.

And I'm not sure how things directly compare on the 3DS side, but that platform gets so many smaller digital titles that most people never even know exist. So I don't know how numbers would look between even those two.

That said, I bought more Vita games in 2016 than for all other platforms I own combined, so I'm ready for it to continue on as long as it possible can. I do have a bit of fear that this will be the last really consistent year for the platform, but I'm also not ready to give up on 2018 just yet.

I just picked up a Vita and I'm really enjoying it. I missed out on many of the PS2 classics so I'm looking forward to those. I beat God of War and enjoyed my time with it. The game was simple, fun and it felt like going on an adventure. Just started God of War 2 and I'm surprised at the jump in quality, looking forward to finishing this one as well.

So far I also have Ratchet and Clank Trilogy, Uncharted, and Persona 4. What a great system, it's a shame Sony didn't support it more.

What makes you say that? Did you read something somewhere?

@Fady K
Your love for the Vita is pretty apparent! Great job again on the thread. GAF has you to thank for a really nice reference point for the Vita's outlook this year. :)

Oh, in case anyone is interested, I wrote all of our Vita-related stuff for our Best of 2016 round-up over the holidays. So here's our Grading the Vita in 2016, our Forecast for Consoles in 2017, and then my personal list (where I talk about the Vita as one of my three unique awards[/url].

And not a god-damned thing better happen to Bloodstain's Vita release, or heads will roll.

It was one of the titles that was meant to be coming to the Vita in China from QubicGames a few years back- http://gematsu.com/2014/12/mercury-k...-ps-vita-china

I'd written it off as well, but Qubic's Air Race Speed was on that list too and it finally came out in the US in December 2016 so maybe there's a chance *shrugs*

dont forget to get the sly trilogy! from ps2 other games you have (ports/remasters):

FFX HD collection ,
Metal Gear Solid hd collection,
Jak trilogy avoid this one if possible
Cel damage HD
Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders from Planet Space
Odin Sphere: Leifthrashir

Bonus tracks : Oddworld Stranger wrath and Oddworld Munch Odyssey (not ps2 games but from ps2 era)


for PSP you have even more




Note: regarding bloodstained , its just a feeling i have due to several factors: the Ps Vita being in the last strech of its life. Bloodstained improving significantly on graphics - The use of Unreal Engine 4. The situation in general over kickstarter promises . etc. I think bloodstained will be a much better game than the initial demo previously shown. i dont see it doable from a business standpoint.

That seems lower than I would have imaged on the DS side. But, the platform didn't have the benefit of digital downloads throughout a good chunk of its life, so it would have had far more boxes on shelves than something like that Vita.

Awesome post! MixedBag here, some updates on our games:

- as announced on Twitter our metroidvania forma.8 finally entered Sony QA and we should be able to ship the game in February! Really happy on how the Vita version turned out! :)

- we're still working on Wheels of Aurelia Vita port. The game runs on VitA but performances are not good right now. We have some more optimizations coming. Really hope to be able to do it.

- we have a couple more games coming this year on Vita. ;)
