These are the most anticipated Vita games in 2014

It is obvious that Sony have changed their approach to the Vita this year, making it a PS4 second screen rather than its own dedicated device. But the fanbase of the Vita is fairly strong (and apparently Vita owners tend to spend much more on games than other mobile devices' owners), and a good stream of good games is awaiting for the second half of 2014.

The article introduces the 10 upcoming 2014 Vita games (in EU/US) that people are waiting for the most today.

The story is too old to be commented.

Neptunia Rebirth is a remake not a port, and I think the image is from bullet girls and not Shinovi versus but not sure

beakeroo11117d ago

Doesn't look like a Shinovi pic because of the guns but it has the shinovi watermark like it was taken in game from the Vita.

TongkatAli1117d ago (Edited 1117d ago )

The Vita has too many games coming out.

sanosukegtr1231117d ago

And some people say the vita doesn't have games.

Inception1117d ago

Yeah that still baffle me, especially in this day & age when more than half of earth population had the internet in their palm.

Spotie1117d ago

They know there's plenty to play.

They just have some random need to troll.

@sanosukegtr123

Plenty of delusional users on this site that will keep saying that, just to discredit the PS Vita.

Vita has games, but most of those only appeal to like 50,000-100,000 gamers.

The variety isn't really there. There is variety amongst the niche titles but they are all still niche and only appeal to so many people.

I love my Vita, but I've been playing my PSP more lately because there are more games that appeal to me for it that I still need to play or beat.

* Playing Legend of Heroes: Tear of Vermillion last night and I realized there aren't any games like this for Vita.

Yea most said it was mediocre or whatever but I'm loving this game. Good music, towns, good battles system, no weird characters, actually interesting people, solid story..ect...

* WHERE ARE THESE GAMES ^ ???

All the games that seem to have fun gameplay for some reason you HAVE to play as a female, with not many clothes on.

That isn't original anymore, it's become Cliche and generic.

What used to be "generic" is now almost extinct, and what once was original is flooding the market with watered down crap.

* Definitely looking forward to Disgaea 4 & Tales of Hearts though. Maybe even freedom wars but even that looks kind of bland.

"Playing Legend of Heroes: Tear of Vermillion last night and I realized there aren't any games like this for Vita"

There's a lot of Legend of Heroes / Eiyuu Densetsu games for vita.

If you understand japanese, i suggest to get:

- Legend of Heroes: The Trail of Zero / Zero no Kiseki and Legend of Heroes: The Trail of Blue / Ao no Kiseki.
http://legendofheroes.wikia...

- Legend of Heroes: The Trail of Flash / Sen no Kiseki I & II
http://legendofheroes.wikia...

My friends who can speak japanese already play it and according to them those games are superior to Tear of Vermilion.

But if you don't understand japanese, you can buy Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky 1st chapter on PSN and play it on your vita. After that, you can wait just like me and the rest of Legend of Heroes fans for Xseed to release 2nd chapter later this year.

sanosukegtr1231117d ago

I'm already getting Senran Kagura Shinovi from japan and thinking of getting Freedom Wars.

JohnApocalypse1117d ago

Freedom Wars is supposed to be the big one for the Vita this year. What reception has it gotten in Japan?

Tidybrutes1117d ago

Overall positive however some saying its too hard or unbalanced.

Good chance it will be patched by the time it releases in the West.

tubers1117d ago

Lowest scoring in PSN and Amazon compared to SS, Toukiden.

Poor story, few content, unbalanced weaponry, questionable AIs and frustratingly random upgrade system.

Some felt duped into getting a TPS game instead of a more traditional "hunting" game.

Hopefully ironed out a bit on NA/EU release and with new free content.

Inception1117d ago (Edited 1117d ago )

No love for Tales of Hearts R and Oreshika? Still a good list though.

For me:

- Freedom Wars
- Oreshika
- Akiba's Trip
- Danganronpa 2
- Tales of Hearts R
- Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus
- Murasaki Baby
- Hotaru no Nikki
- Grim Fandango
- Legend of Heroes: TitS 2nd chapter
- The Wolf Among Us + The Walking Dead season 2
- Hotline Miami 2

13 vita games for the rest of 2014 are still very good for me. I hope my wallet still breathing though >.<

novurdim1117d ago

Yeah, I'm still buffled how in the world they managed to miss Oreshika.

Protagonist1117d ago

Count me in for Freedom Wars and Oreshika.

tiffac0081116d ago

Is Oreshika slated for release this year in NA or EU?

Yeah that list missed Tales of Hearts R ^^

Inception1116d ago

No release date, but there's a big possibility it will be release this year for NA and EU
