The Vita needs JRPG's. Hopefully when FFX releases, it sells well enough for other publishers to notice.

Yep, we are really missing out on a lot of gems. Hopefully the Vita sales hits a mystical mark in a publishers head whereby they can no longer say no to localizations and will get something done. Until then we can only pray and enjoy the small catalog available to us.
