Upcoming Vita Games (~200+ Upcoming games in ENGLISH) || 2017 Edition ||

#1
Welcome to the 2017 thread for our beloved Vita platform that still has plenty to offer for fans of the handheld (and those who are looking into getting one have much to play on the system). This thread is to highlight the countless upcoming games for the system and to discuss the latest releases and Vita game news and what have you.

As I said last year: 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. Should any of you have any feedback or suggestions - or if you noticed any games that have been canned/announced and not added for the list below, feel free to drop me a message anytime and let me know. Much love, have fun :)

Iconoclasts and Drift Stage are coming to Vita? Holy shit, I can't believe I didn't hear about it.

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

Can anyone sell me on Dex or Exile's End? Those look interesting.
 
#14
Nice job, OP. I'm sure that took some time to put together. I have to say it isn't 100% clear on what is coming and what is already out though, particularly in the JP release section.

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!
 
#15
Great new 2017 thread!

Some of these games we haven't had an update on in a long time, I think Project Phoenix is in development hell for a start. I'm looking forward to Liege but after 18 months without a peep from them I wonder whether it's still even being made.

So many games I'm looking forward to though, 2017 looks like a good year for the Vita.
 
#31
So I see this has been updated with what looks like every release ever for Vita. Why? Isn't this supposed to be 2017 thread? It's long as hell!
 
#33
Probably my most posted in thread last year :)

Can't wait to see what this year brings. Plenty of new additions I'm sure, hopefully not quite as many removes as 2016 :(
 
#36
Are The Banner Saga and Zodiac still a thing that are happening for sure? Not heard anything about either in forever it doesn't seem like. Day 1 buys if they are.

Also, I really do hope we get Uppers & SaGa: Scarlet Grace in English.
 
#41
Poncho and Drive Drive Drive still coming?

Also Tales from the borderlands isn't happening imo. No more telltale stuff.

I love Fady's work here, but I do think it needs some trimming. There's still a few games on here with no updates for ages (i.e. Betty Boop Bop); stuff that clearly isn't coming anymore but hasn't been confirmed (Tales from the Borderlands) or stuff that's all but officially cancelled (DriveDriveDrive is a "maybe in the future" from the dev).

No idea about Zodiac, we haven't heard from it in ages. Banner Saga I think will almost definitely happen. Gio Corsi recently confirmed Code Mystics are actively working on it and it's aiming for early 2017.

Very happy to see some feedback already, thanks everyone! I will work on a lot of trimmings after work tomorrow and make the thread highlight more recent titles. Thanks again, and wishing you all a wonderful new year!

Man, not only are there a lot of 2016 games in there, there's also plenty of 2015 ones like Dancing All Night.
P4DAN is under:

(5RR) REST OF THE RELEASED GAMES

they aren't counted in the 200+ games(i guess), i'm not really fond of that category filled with pre-2017 games but i won't complain.

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. ;)

Here's an example.

Imagination is the Only Escape
- Luc Bernard is a single developer who notoriously announced a gaggle of WiiWare exclusive games in 2007-2008 before releasing any and basically none of them panning out. He briefly gained notoriety for claiming he'd make a game about the holocaust. Imagination is the Only Escape.
- 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?

You might also want to note "Only in Japan" games that have/will have Asian English releases, like DOAX3 and Super Robot Wars V.
