Upcoming Vita Games (200+ Upcoming games in ENGLISH) || 2016 Edition ||

Fady K

Welcome to the 2016 edition of the Vita thread - the legacy system AKA the system that was supposed to have died around 2-3 years ago :D

Incredibly, there are around 200+ games coming out in the near future in ENGLISH. Yes, you read that right - 200+ (around 209 to be specific as of the date this thread was created - January 1st 2016). Not just that, but there are MANY MORE coming out in Japanese that may very well be localized! (I'm talking about BIG games like Danganronpa V3 and Dragon Quest Builders).

This thread exists because of the awesome Vita community on GAF - you guys are the best and it is because of YOU that I am highly motivated to make another Vita thread for the new year ahead. As always, I'll be sure to update as frequently as possible! Here's hoping for another great year for our Vitas. Much love, have fun :)

Rollers of the Realm
Bless you, Vita. May you keep being an indie game heaven for many years to come.

Thanks for the amazing OP. I didn't even know Volgarr or Chroma Squad were heading to Vita, so that's great news.



Project Setsuna AKA Ikenie To Yuki No Setsuna is confirmed for localization in the west. It was originally announced at E3.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel = Eiyuu Densetsu: Sen no Kiseki II so you have the game listed twice.
Wonderflick Vita was never released and is essentially dead.
I like the Vita, but never really think to play it or have much of an inkling to. Most of these games are indies or niche titles, too, and not system sellers.

I have nothing against indies and some look interesting, but most are too niche.
LOL you think that's going to be enough. How cute.

I'm going to need to invest in a second 64GB card this year, my last one is full (and that's after deleting stuff), there are still so many games I want to get too... My problem is buying and download games, then playing them at a later date, never being able to decide what to keep and what to remove. Huge patches don't help either, with stuff like Killzone and RE Revelations 2 taking up 1GB + in patches/updates alone.

Anyway, nice job Fady, can't wait to pick up a fair few of the above games this year, really looking forward to importing a few more games from Japan, grabbing the English Asian release of stuff like Digimon and giving Ray Gigant a try (really like the look of that game). Hoping Net High gets a solid confirmation of an English version this year as well, I think it was rumoured last year.


Amazing work as always Fady.

A suggestion - and maybe this is something we can all chip in with - can we get updated screenshots of things? A lot of those projects probably have more up to date images/gifs that might better reflect the game.

But still - incredible work.


Thank you very much for creating another Vita thread, I greatly appreciate it!

Btw, several of the games you listed in the opening post have already been released, for instance Nuclear Throne.

EDIT: Never mind, I see that it's now listed under "New Attractions".


Hugely impressive list. I didn't even realize the Vita had this much content coming. More then enough to warrant a purchase.


Great job again, I've never heard of several interesting looking indies up there.

Also, this might be helpful too, I don't know if you've seen it before Fady K.

It's pretty much only major releases so not as in-depth as this thread.

No confirmation or denial yet on that Xcom Vita rumor?
It's been trademarked, it'll show up eventually like Civ Rev2+ or AssCreed Chronicles.


Once again great work Fady K.

And somehow there's always something new and cool and I didn't know about. Never heard about Dex, Lumo and Randall and they all look cool.
