At this year's Tokyo Game Show, there will be around 40 PS Vita games. Forty. And the machine isn't even out! Some of the games have already been revealed. Some haven't.
Leaks from this week's forthcoming issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu shed light on some of the new titles. Here's a list of what's in the publication:
• Lumines: Electronic Symphony
• Rayman Origins
• Michael Jackson The Experience HD
• Dark Quest
• Dream Club Zero Portable
• Moe Moe Daisensou
• Ragnarok Odyssey
Lumines is one of my favorite PSP titles and a logical Vita title. Ubisoft is bringing both Rayman Origins and Michael Jackson The Experience to PS Vita. Dream Club Zero Portable looks to be a port of Xbox 360 hostess game Dream Club Zero, while Moe Moe Daisensou is this.
There's a Gameloft app called Dark Quest, but Ubisoft is publishing this title, so it could be a different Dark Quest.
Ragnarok, a hugely popular online title, is getting a PS Vita version, enabling gamers to hunt down big monsters with various character classes.
2D action title Sumioni from Tokyo-based studio Acquire looks to be one of the more interesting titles, like it was drawn with digital ink. The art style is one of the most arresting I've seen in a while, very Japanese, very beautiful. The game uses "brush touch action", so it could stir up fond Okami memories for players.
