PS Vita Weekly Update #203 - 04/06/2016
 
03:08
Criminal Girls 2 is being localized for the West with the subtitle Party Favors, and with a set release date of September 20 in North America and September 23 in Europe. The game will have two special editions, and will be notably censored like the western version of the first game. XSEED have announced two games they're publishing this year. Shantae Half Genie Hero is the fourth in the series of platformers, with plenty of belly dancing hair whipping combat to be had. The game will have a physical 'Risky Beats' edition with a soundtrack for $30USD sometime in the fall. The second game is Exile's End, described as half-Metroidvania, half cinematic platformer. It's coming digitally sometime in the summer. Akiba's Beat was announced from the studio that developed Akiba's Trip this week. The game takes place in a HD representation of Akiba, and revolves around dungeon crawling through people's delusions. The game will be out in Japan sometime in the fall. XSEED have already registered a domain for the game so they may be working on a localization. According to the series creator of Romancing Saga, the Romancing Saga 2 Vita port is being worked on for the west. He didn't give a specific date; in fact the tweet may be interpreted as they're trying to get permission to localize it more than actually localizing it, but it's worth mentioning anyway. Grand Kingdom is getting a demo in next week's store update. The demo will contain four of the game's classes, one war per day, and two chapters of the story, along with save compatibility with the full version. The game launches on the 17th of June in Europe and the 21st in North America. Dates! Europe is getting XBlaze Lost Memories on the 21st of June as a digital exclusive. Reco Love launches in Japan on the 25th of August. Fate/Extella launches in Japan on November 10. There was a surprise release in the form of Delta Strike: First Assault this week, previously a PS Mobile game. And finally this week, Bandai Namco have trademarked "A.W. Phoenix Festa" in Europe - the name appears to be taken from the previously released Asterisk War game from Japan. No official announcement has been made yet. That's it for this week. Channel update. I'm sorry for taking so long for getting videos out on Paranautical Activity and One Piece Burning Blood AND Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, but it appears I'm just running into extraordinary bad luck recently. Paranautical Activity is coming tomorrow, Burning Blood is coming somewhat later, and I'm still waiting on Odin Sphere at the time of writing this. There will be something else coming in the next week though, and if you follow my PSN trophies, you'll probably be able to guess exactly what.

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X has been confirmed for the west on Vita and PS4. The game has over 300 costumes and 30 songs. The game's coming in the Fall. Uppers has been reconfirmed for release in Japan, getting a new date of July 14th, along with a second demo that's available now on the store. The game will also have a free DLC character, Daidoji from Senran Kagura, for first print copies. The PlayStation Plus lineup for April has confirmed the existence of a Vita version of A Virus Named TOM, which will be a free goodie for this month. No details on it's normal price. Lumo, an isometric love letter to old isometric computer games of the eighties, has been announced for Vita and PS4 and launching on the 22nd of April in North America and Europe. The game has over 450 rooms, lots of secrets and several minigames to play. Dates! Skullgirls: 2nd Encore launches on April 5 in North America. Risk of Rain is launching on April 12. Axiom Verge comes to North American Vitas on April 19, no date for Europe yet. MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune vs Zombies has been delayed to May 10 for North America while Europe has no solid date again. Civilization Revolution 2+ received the expected release across North America and Europe for $20 or the regional equivalent. And finally this week, the North American store received two surprise games - Tachyon Project, a twin stick shooter, and Maliya, a card game. Europe also appears to be getting an odd game by the name of Zombies: The Last Survivor on the 1st of April. That's it for this week. Channel update. A video on Maliya is coming tomorrow, hope you didn't mind that cluster that was my Civ Rev 2 video yesterday. As for upcoming videos, nothing planned at the moment, next week will be quite busy though. Unfortunately for me, while my Slim Vita's left analog stick seems to have fixed itself for the time being, my original model Vita that I shipped back for an analog stick repair managed to break it's capture board during transit and it's gonna cost me $300 USD to get a new board. That's gonna be fun. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

Tribute Games, the developers of Wizorb and Mercenary Kings, have announced a new 2D platformer by the name of Curses n' Chaos. The game is coming sometime soon to Vita and PS4. Curve Studios have announced two new projects. Stealth Inc 2, previously a Wii U exclusive, is coming to Vita and PS4 sometime in April.

And finally this week, Soldner X2 Final Prototype will release on the 17th of March in North America and the 18th of March in Europe, for $10 or your regional equivalent. The game will also launch with the Final Chapter DLC pack, and both are Cross-Buy with their PS3 versions. That's it for this week. Channel update. The question and answer session is now available on the channel, since it went up yesterday. I've been pushing out a lot of videos recently, hope you're all greatful. Back to Oreshika.

Ys VIII Quick Translation Patch Comparison

So the Ys VIII translation patch came out pretty recently and I downloaded the game again to have a look, only to realize that I still had the save files I used to record my video on it, so I loaded it on the video capture Vita and recaptured the cutscene I showed in my original video with the new translation, and stuck them in the order of old translation / new translation. I was thinking about doing a fuller video on the new translation (and still am, it just might be a while due to other commitments) but I thought this quick comparison would help a lot of people out - even in this one cutscene alone there seems to be quite the difference. Feels a lot more natural and in character, both in voices and script. They didn't seem to be kidding when they said they re-did the entire game.

Square Enix and Tecmo Koei Games announced Dragon Quest Heroes 2 this week. While there's next to no details on what the game is yet, what is known is that there's a Vita version coming alongside the PS3 and PS4 versions. Project Root, a top down shoot-em-up from Opqam, is coming to Vita and PS4 on the 28th of April in North America. The game has already released on Steam for $10, so one can argue that will probably be the price of the PlayStation versions. Cross-buy is included. Spike Chunsoft are remaking a Japanese PC indie game known as One Way Heroics under the new title Mystery Chronicle: I Won't Look Back Until I Win. The game is a turn based RPG roguelike where the world is being slowly destroyed from the left, and if the player is touched, the game ends. The game ia due out in the summer in Japan. Chaos;Child, the sequel to Chaos;Head, spin off to Steins;Gate, previously exclusive to Xbox One in Japan, is coming to Vita, PS3 and PS4 in Japan on the 25th of June, with a demo available in Japan right now. Here's some Japanese release dates for you. Ray Gigant, Experience's new DRPG in combination with Bandai Namco, is coming on the 30th of July. Luminous Arc Infinity is releasing on the 6th of August. And Zettai Geigeki Wars: Metropolis Defenders is coming on the 2nd of July. And finally this week, something I missed last week - Run Sackboy Run is now out on North American Vitas. That's it for this week. Channel update. I hope you're not sick of the PS Mobile videos yet because the backlog is heavy and the release list isn't looking great for the next week, so MORE PS MOBILE! Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. That's it for this week.

Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. Damascus Gear: Operation Osaka, the apparent English name of Damascus Gear Saikyo Exodus, has been rated on the German game ratings board. It was rated for both Vita and PS4, but no official announcement has been made just yet. The game was released last March in Japan. Little Adventure on the Prarie, a platformer game previously released on the 3DS, may be coming to the Vita if a leaked trophy list is anything to go by. No announcement's been made yet. Manga Kakeru, a manga creation tool that uses 3D models to make individual panels, has been announced for sometime this month in Japan. It will have an adventure game style first chapter generator, and a service that will let players upload manga to a server for other players to read. It'll launch for 600 yen. Just one date for you this week, the Western release of Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms will be on the 13th of March for North America and the 16th of March for Europe. All physical copies will have a reversible cover with the original Japanese art, and compatibility with the PlayStation TV. And finally this week, another rating, this one from Marvelous Europe, of Assault Gunners: HD Edition. Assault Gunners is an mech action game that was released in 2012 on Vita. Notably, however, only a rating for this new HD Edition was found for PS4, leaving a potential English release of the original up in the air. That's it for this week. I've spent the entirety of this week basically doing no work, since there's no work to be bloomin' done. I asked for Digimon Story code, didn't get it. I asked for Iconoclasts code, haven't got it. I asked for Under Night code, haven't got it. People hate me for some reason. I'll buy Digimon Story when it's out and get to work on it; I've also got Gintama Rumble on the way, and then after that it'll be Operation Osaka.

Kemco have announced they plan to port one of their RPGs, Asdivine Hearts, to Vita, PS3 and PS4. The game claims to be focused on being a good retro RPG, with over 40 hours of gameplay and a twisting and turning plot. The game will be crossbuy. Developer Cowcat announced a Vita port of their point and click adventure Demetrios. The game claims to be a humor oriented adventure game, with 8 hours of story and a high amount of interactivity. The game will release in North America on the 15th of November. SaGa Scarlet Grace is getting special stylized Vita bundles in Japan. The bundles will have a special design, some artwork, and an exclusive theme. They will be available day and date with the Japanese version of the game, December 15. Dates. Spider Rite of the Shrouded Moon launched by surprise this week. Steins;Gate 0 has been confirmed for November 25 in Europe and November 29 in North America. Two European dates: Fate/Extella has been confirmed for a Janurary 2017 release by Marvelous Europe. PQube have confirmed they're handling the European release of Akiba's Beat in Q1 2017. The 3D Touhou fighting game, Touhou Koubuto V, has been pushed up from November 3 to 2. The Japanese version of Rodem the Wild is releasing sometime in December; the game has been confirmed for an international release previously but still has no date. Finally this week, Bridge Constructor's trophies have shown up on the usual trophy indexing sites. No official date has been given just yet. That's it for this week. I'll be recording my video on World of Final Fantasy about the same time I finish up recording for this weekly update so barring all problems I should have that up on the weekend. I have no code for anything else just yet so I'll probably just get to another import or two before next week. Man, this Play-Asia thing is nice, isn't it? If you didn't watch my Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu video, go and watch at least some of that if you can, I put a lot of effort into that video.

Licky the Lucky Lizard Lives Again, a trifling example of title tongue-twisting terror, released on Vita in Europe this week and will release in North America on Thursday. The game involves a lizard trying to escape up a volcano as fast as possible with the help of his enormously elastic tongue. Two pinball games from Shine Research have been listed for Vita via the European ratings board - Babylon 2055 Pinball and Zombie Pinball, titles released quite long ago on the mobile platforms and more recently on Steam. The games individually promise multiple tables, lots of challenges and realistic physics. And finally this week, surprising me at least since I thought it was unoficially cancelled, Life of Pixel's Vita version apparently continues development and is almost wrapped up, according to developer Super Icon. The new version of the game will have more levels, machines and gameplay features. That's it for this week. It wasn't a good week this week, I'm not gonna lie. What's not gonna disappoint is, hopefully, next week's videos. I have a video of Licky the Lucky Lizard to record along with this update, and Utawarerumono Mask of Truth's video is done and uploaded already. I'm not sure if I'll get review code for anything else this week, since the queue's been cleared all the way up to the 19th, but we'll wait and see. I've always got backlog videos and An Idiot Imports to do if worse comes to worse.

Might as well get the big one out of the way; Bloodstained Ritual of the Night has been cancelled for Vita, citing Sony ending support for Vita online features and physical copies. Backers can either switch to another version of the game or get a refund. Side scrolling Japanese shooter Gundemoniums is getting a western release on Vita and PS4 sometime in the Fall, and the creator, Platine Dispositif, has also confirmed that they're working on a Western physical release too, although there's no date for that. Side-scrolling brawler I Am The Hero was announced this week by Ratalaika Games as coming to Vita in the future; they claim to be working on improving the performance of the port currently. No date just yet. Platforming game Perils of Baking is being worked on for Vita; no specific date was given by the developer, Lillymo Games, although they hope to implement crossbuy with the PS4 version. And finally this week, a couple of dates. Pato Box is coming on the 18th of September to Vita, with cross-buy. Ratalaika Games have announced they're the devs of the port of FullBlast, and it'll be out sometime in September. And Super Life of Pixel was delayed from its release date this week to September as well. That's it for this week. I apologize for not having more videos for you but this damn cough will just not go away. It'll be backlogged Better Late than Never until I can get my voice back, then it'll be Bullet Girls, as promised.

Three new free to play games have been announced for Vita this week - My Singing Monsters and Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, two iPhone and Android games, and Guns Up, an original strategy title, are all releasing on Vita sometime this year. Tetris Ultimate was announced for Vita this week. It will release sometime in the Fall, after the console versions, which will release sometime in the summer.

Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. While this isn't a new game announcement per se, it's worth talking about. PQube Games have announced they will be the publishers for the upcoming ports of the Muv-Luv visual novel trilogy, and they will be doing both physical and digital copies for North America and Europe. Rice Digital will also be doing a limited run of the entire trilogy in an as-yet-undetailed special edition. Still no date as of yet. We have two games leaked via trophy lists this week; the first is One Eyed Kutkh, a point-and-click adventure game by Baba Yaga Games. It features a traveler trying to deceive the sun and moon for their space boats so that he can get home. Yeah, I dunno. No official announcement yet. The second game is Deep Ones; a retro platformer inspired by the likes of HP Lovecraft and the ZX Spectrum, which is two things that you wouldn't think go together. The game claims to have a philosophical storyline and changing the genre from time to time. No announcement for this one either. Kadokawa Games are making a new edition of God Wars: Future Past for Japan. With the new subtitle of Great War of Japanese Mythology, it'll contain the base God Wars game along with the previously-announced Labyrinth of Yomi DLC and patches that added gameplay improvements. There's no date for this one yet. Dates! Both Little Adventure on the Prarie and Defender's Quest might release on PSN next week, according to datamined images from Gematsu. Steins;Gate Elite has been delayed from it's previous March 15th date to an undetermined time this year. And Rogue Aces, arcade flight roguelike from the people who made Don't Die Mr. Robot, has a trophy list now, implying an upcoming release. One new physical release this week in the form of Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee from Oddworld Inhabitants and Limited Run Games. It'll be available on the 23rd of this month. No more details about the release as of yet. And finally this week, Mercenary Kings has received a patch to fix its elevator glitch. That's it for this week. Hope you enjoyed the week of tiny An Idiot Imports episodes because this week is where things get interesting again. I have a dedicated date for moving, which is six days from when you see this. I have six videos to get done this week and chances are some of them won't be done by the time the week's out, but I'll try to get at least three videos out in the next week or so.

Chasm, a new title from the team that made Axiom Verge, was announced for Vita this week, joining a previously announced PS4 version. The game is an action-adventure with hand-made rooms strung together randomly for a unique experience for each player, with six fully fleshed out areas of enemies, challenges and bosses. It'll be out this summer. Collapsus, a puzzle game from Wraith Games about rotating the playfield to crunch blocks for points, is coming to the Vita later in the year thanks to Ratalaika Games. The game has 5 difficulties, a ton of challenge modes, 300 puzzles and plenty of accessibility options. Dates! League of Evil will release on the 10th of April. The Lost Child will launch on the 19th of June in North America and the 22nd of June in Europe, both regions digitally. Cosmic Star Heroine has made it through the QA department in North America, and the dev is waiting for Europe to announce a release, and Rainbow Skies has entered QA this week. That's it for this week. I've been using a new microphone setup this week which is basically a bunch of acoustic foam panels held together by chopsticks, so let me know if my audio mix is better or worse than last week, if you can. Upcoming videos this week are Sir Eatsalot, KOF97 and Rogue Aces at the moment.

There isn't much news this week so I'll do it in one shot. Severed is getting a Play-Asia exclusive physical special edition, with soundtrack, manual, certificate and collector's box for $35USD. It'll be out sometime next month. Super Destronaut DX will be out next week, for $4.99. And Radio Hammer Station's Japanese release is out on July 12th; the English version is still up in the air. That's it. No, really. YU-NO got announced for the West, but Spike Chunsoft are skipping the Vita version, again. As for what videos are coming up next week...I have a video ready to go for Monday, and I can probably have a Super Destronaut video ready for Friday, so Wednesday will probably be a Better Late than Never from the backlog. Better than nothing, I suppose. Patrons, as always, must be thanked.

Two titles were announced for localization by Aksys Games about an hour after the last Weekly Update went up, so time to talk about them. Death Mark, also known as Shiin, is getting a Western release, but a release window wasn't announced. A physical release is coming, too. The second is Code;Realize Wintertide Miracles, the second fandisc of the series. It'll release sometime in 2019 in North America and Europe. A physical release is coming, but regions haven't been confirmed. Sigi - A Fart for Melusina, a retro platformer inspired by Ghosts and Goblins, is getting a release on Vita on the 7th of September from developer Pixel.lu. No price, but the Steam version is $2.99. The same developers are also working on a port of their next game, Plutonium Pirates, although they aren't sure if the Vita is capable of running it yet. The Dreamlands: Aisling's Quest, a point and click adventure title from developer The Domaginarium, is coming to Vita sometime next month. The story follows Aisling in a world created by her dreams and nightmares that she must save from a figure known as The Mourner. No price yet, but it's $5 on Steam. Tetra's Escape, an Android-based puzzle platformer, has had a trophy list spotted implying an upcoming Vita release. There's been no official announcement yet. Japan has received an unusual release; Gameloft-developed action RPG Dungeon Hunter 5, known there as Dark Quest 5, will have released as a free-to-play title on Vita and PS4 by the time you see this Weekly Update. Early players will receive an extra bonus. Punch Line is getting a Cheermancy Edition for both North America and Europe. This version runs at $100USD and 80GBP, and contains the game, 128 page artbook, soundtrack, Chiranosuke's collar and pendant, keychain, and a full sized pigeon head mask. There is apparently more Punch Line news coming today, but chances are it won't make this update; check the description if you want to confirm the new news. Just one physical release piece of news today, color-shifting puzzle-platformer Hue is getting a Limited Run Games release next week, on the 20th of July. Dates! Super Skull Smash Go 2 Turbo will be launching on the 17th of July...pretty much everywhere. According to an early picture found by Gematsu, Spacejacked's Vita version will be joining Skull Smash and Super Destronaut DX on the 17th as well. And Chasm will be launching in North America on the 31st of July for $19.99. And finally this week, a port of Night Trap 25th Anniversary Edition exists for Vita, according to the head of the studio who made the remaster, Screaming Villians. He said he didn't know when it would be published, if it is at all, but it's kinda neat to know it was a thing either way. That's it for this week. I said those first two stories happened an hour before the update and I wasn't kidding, it annoyed me a little. I appreciate all the opinions talked about me covering homebrew stuff, and I believe I have something figured out that will hopefully make you all happy; you'll see next week, along with a new An Idiot Imports I've been meaning to do for a while.

This new version launches on the 11th and 12th of November for $9.99 or 7 euro 99, with a 20% PS+ launch discount. That's it for this week. Channel update coming at you prerecorded. My first 60FPS video came out yesterday with The Binding of Isaac, don't expect 60FPS videos too often though, they're pretty damn hard to upload due to their size. Also, remember Minutes came out this week in Europe, so if you didn't see my video on that you should go check it out. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.
PS Vita Weekly Update #180 - 26/12/2015
 
02:27
Namco Bandai announced four titles for English releases this week. The first is Gundam Extreme Vs Force, a localization of the exclusive Vita Gundam title. It's coming sometime in 2016. Digital or retail hasn't been confirmed. The second and third are God Eater Resurrection and God Eater 2: Rage Burst, for Vita, PS4 and PC. Both games are coming sometime in Summer 2016, both retail and digital in Europe at least. The fourth is Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization for Vita and PS4, also coming sometime in 2016. Volume's Vita port is coming out on the 5th of Janurary. The game claims to have a lot of attention put into it due to the wait that Vita players were subjected to. The game will be cross-buy, and as of the week of this Weekly Update, the game is currently 50% off on both US and EU markets. Two indie games announced for Vita this week: Heartz, a platformer puzzler based around suceeding in deadly lab tests, is coming in 2016 with cross buy. Ninja Senki DX, an enhanced version of a freeware title from developer Tribute, is coming in Feburary 2016 and will also be cross buy. Two games have added Vita platform designations, indicating they will be coming to Vita soon. The first is Max Gentlemen, a free to play hat stacking game, and Aerea Shattered Lands, a recently announced action RPG. Both titles have no official announcements or dates yet. Croixleur Sigma, the indie beat-em-up, will have received it's Vita version on Christmas Eve in Japan. And finally this week, Banner Saga's Vita version, which was announced to be delayed last week, is being finished up by Third Party Productions and Versus Evil. That's it for this week. Channel update. After the 45 minute ramble I did yesterday I think I'll have a week off, except maybe one or two videos if I'm capable of putting something together, since there seems to be no releases coming up. Either way, have a good holiday. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

(And Fate/Extella Link now has a release window of Q1 2019.) Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. Hacky Zack, a high-speed puzzle platformer, has had a trophy list spotted for Vita and PS4 this week. No official announcement has been made for a port yet, although one may be incoming. Back in 1995, PlayStation one-era throwback horror title originally supposed to release three years ago, has been picked up for porting & publishing by Ratalaika Games. They didn't give out a specific date, just a teaser trailer. Limited Run Games have announced they'll be releasing Another World 20th Anniversary Edition physically on the 28th of September at 10am Eastern...which means that by the time you see this, the game will have probably sold out already. Whoops. Sorry about that. XSeed have released a free demo of their upcoming otome title London Detective Mysteria on the PlayStation Store this week in the US, Europe and Australia. The demo will allow you to play through the game's prologue. Apparently it took quite a bit of effort to put together. Dates! Revenant Dogma, the Kemco and EXE-Create RPG that was announced two weeks ago, is now available on the US PS Store. Pato Box has a date again after a couple of delays - it'll be out on the 2nd of next month, so, next week. And Root Letter: Last Answer, on top of being confirmed as a live-action remake of the original, has been dated for the 20th of December in Japan. And finally this week, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will lose its online functionality as of the 25th of October, so get your platinum trophies while you can. That's it for this week. Alright. I have no content ready for you next week at this very moment. There were many, many different things that I wanted to do and somehow I screwed up almost all of them due to one set of circumstances or another, so I kinda have nothing. However, I do have the demo of London Detective Mysteria to play through, I do believe I'm getting code for Pato Box, and if worse comes to worse I can always do a video on the Fist of the North Star game because I'm really looking forward to that, so at least there won't be nothing this week.

Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. Might as well lead off with the big one; Omega Labyrinth Z's release has been cancelled in the West. While the statement PQube put out was unspecific, it seems blame lies in the hands of Sony specifically. No details if they plan on doing anything with the localization, which presumably was at least close to finished at this point. PQube have said on Twitter that they're working on one more Vita game; they haven't given us many details outside of "it's not YU-NO, Net High or a Science Adventure game" and it won't be out this year. Ratalaika have announced they're porting Super Destronaut DX to Vita, and that it'll be out sometime next month. No further details were given about the Space Invaders styled shooter; this is a different version of the game compared to the ones previously released on Wii U and 3DS, so we don't know many details. Two dates this week. We had a surprise release of circular driving game Roundabout this week; it's $9.99 and cross-buy with PS4. Ice Cream Surfer will make its way to Vita sometime next month. And finally this week, some more bad news; as of the 27th of August, online features for Hustle Kings, BigFest, Gravity Crash Ultra and PlayStation Vita Pets will no longer be available. That's it for this week. Well, that wasn't a great week, was it. The schedule is pretty much set in stone right now; Roundabout on Monday, Fate/Extella Link on Wednesday and Waking Violet on Friday. The week after the next one is where things will get really interesting, though. Either way it's time to thank the Patrons; Eddier, Mithaldu, the other Richard, Brian, Joey, Twee-otch, Chen, the other Joey, Adam, Raymond, Eric, Matthew, Miguel, Alan, Caleb, JR, Brett, Kyle, Billy, Gary, David and Bliz.

Kemco and EXE-Create have announced another RPG for Vita in the form of Fernz Gate. There's not many details on just how different this will be from their usual fare. No dates yet. Two games have been announced via trophy lists this week; Fullblast, a scrolling shooter previously released on the Wii U, and Pato Box, an arcade boxer inspired by Punch-Out. No official announcements for either of these yet. Ratalaika Games has claimed to be publishing a "3D FPS platformer" for Vita sometime next year. Not many other details were given outside of that. While there are no physical announcements proper this week, Red Art Games, responsible for the physical Vita release of The Bard's Tale, is working on a shoot-em-up physical release for Vita and PS4. No date outside of 'coming soon'. Dates! Punch Line has been dated for the 31st of August in Europe and the 25th of September in North America. Persona 3 Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5 Dancing in Starlight will launch on December 4th in the US and Europe, with a digital pack containing the two games and Persona 4: Dancing All Night confirmed for the same day for $70. And finally this week, some depressing news. Unity will officially be dropping support for Vita after Unity version 2017.4. That's it for this week. I said that video production would slow down a bit, and well, now it's gonna turn out I'm a liar because I found time to get three videos made for next week. This will give me time to play Bullet Girls Phantasia, at least.

(Riddled Corpses EX is confirmed for this week in NA too, thanks to The Drop.) Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. A trophy list has appeared for State of Anarchy: Master of Mayhem, a twin stick shooter released on Steam last year. It has 48 stages, over 50 guns and 80 kinds of enemies and bosses. It hasn't officially been announced for Vita yet. Japan's getting another weirdy beardy visualy novely - Tayutama 2: You're The Only One is a sequel to 2008 title Tayutama, and it's about forming a bond between humans and catgirls. Yeah, sounds about right. September 27th, 6,980 yen. Super Hydorah will be getting its Limited Run Games physical release on the 8th of June. No price confirmed for it just yet. A patch has been confirmed for Stardew Valley which will hopefully fix crashing related to already earned trophies. The patch will hopefully be out sometime next week. Two dates this week - Cosmic Star Heroine will be out in Europe on the 5th of June, and also confirmed for the same day is Riddled Corpses EX, with no date for North America just yet. Finally this week, Sony Japan will be releasing a special Vita bundle on the 8th of June to support their Days of Play promotion - it contains a Slim silver Vita with a 32GB memory card for the price of a regular Vita, which in Japan's case is 19,980 yen. That's it for this week. It feels like these are coming and going really fast now, but that might be due to how much time Flashpoint is taking from me. Bah. Anyway, upcoming videos this week include Defender's Quest, and I'll probably figure out some other stuff to put up in time. Thanks to my Patrons as always, Eddier, Mithaldu, the other Richard, Brian, Joey, Twee-otch, Chen, the other Joey, Adam, Raymond, Eric, Matthew, Miguel, Alan, Caleb, JR, Brett, Kyle, Billy, Gary, David and Bliz.

Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. Vertical scrolling shooter Fast Striker has been revealed for Vita and PS4 by developer NGDEV and publisher EastAsiaSoft, who are also organizing a physical version of the game. It'll have six stages, four difficulties and what they claim to be 'silky smooth 60fps'. It'll be available on October 16th for $6.99, cross buy. Yet another RPG from Kemco and EXE-Create is coming soon in the form of Chronus Arc, and I have absolutely no faith in the idea that it'll be any different from any of the other RPGs they've made. It's out October 10th in Japan, and I imagine a western release won't be far behind. After a tease a couple of years ago it looks like Atari Flashback Classics may be getting a release on Vita in a new form. This comes from a leaked trophy list; the trophies included have a mixture of games from the first and second volumes with unique trophy art, which would be a lot of effort to go to for a game not being released. There's been no official announcement. In physical news, horizontal scrolling shooter Ice Cream Surfer is up for preorder on Red Art Games, for 20 euro. It'll release on the 7th of December. Just one date for you this week, and it's more of a range, with Fate/Extella Link getting a quarter 1 2019 release window. And finally this week, some more shutdown news. Sound Shapes will be losing it's community-driven level publishing on the 15th of October, joining PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which has had its shutdown date moved up ten days. That's it for this week. With both Sound Shapes and PlayStation All-Stars shutting down in two weeks it's time to get the streams out, so on Monday I'll be streaming Sound Shapes community levels and on Wednesday I'll be streaming PlayStation All-Stars online fights, if I can, at the same usual time I put videos out. Hope to see you there.

PS Vita Weekly Update #179 - 19/12/2015

Hello and welcome to the Vita weekly update. It's the Vita's 4th birthday in Japan, so let's celebrate with a lot of Japanese news. Gundam Breaker 3 was announced this week for Vita and PS4 with a 2016 release date. The new game is being handled by the same developers, and will contain the super-deformed line of model kits as playable if the trailer is anything to go by. Also announced this week was SD Gundam G Generation Genesis for Vita, PS3 and PS4. The strategy game based around said super-deformed line of model kits will have over 650 playable units. The game will launch sometime in 2016. Nobunanga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence: Sengoku Risshiden was announced for Vita, PS3, PS4 and PC this week, launching in Japan on the 24th of March. The new version allows you to play as a military commander instead of a Daimyo, carrying out their life goal instead of conquering the land. The game will also feature elements from the Japanese TV drama Sanada Maru. Bullet Girls 2 was announced for Vita this week by D3 Publisher. The new game will have new characters, actions levels and overall "greater volume". The game is due out sometime in 2016. Romancing SaGa 2, the 1993 SNES RPG, is being rereleased on Vita, along with mobile platforms, sometime in Winter in Japan. The new version will have better controls and more content from earlier mobile ports. There were a lot of Japanese dates this week. Trails in the Sky 3rd Chapter Evolution is coming to Japan in 2016. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will be launching in summer 2016. Summon Night 6 launches on the 10th of March. Digimon World: Next Order launches on the 17th of March. And finally, Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness, the Xbox One visual novel, is coming to Vita and PS4 in Japan sometime in spring 2016. And a couple of European things here: The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel launches in Europe on the 29th of January, and Red Game Without A Great Name launched in Europe this week. That's it for this week. Channel update. Told you it would be quiet. I'm considering buying Summon Night 5 as I won't be getting review code for it at the moment, but other than that I'll be mainly slamming myself into Trails of Cold Steel this week for a video on that, so it might be a while before you even see a Summon Night 5 video. Hold on tight for that one anyway. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. Switch firmware 3.0.2 launched this week. The main feature is online functionality for Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia or Peru. And of course, stability. The Switch is getting an updated version of Rockstar published detective title LA Noire. The new version launches on the 14th of November, and contains all of the DLC, Joy-Con and touch controls, and new camera angles. Nicalis have put up a picture of some titles they're working on, with some of their unnanounced games blurred out. Fans have figured out that some of the games are VVVVVV, Knight Terrors, Hyper Light Drifter, 1001 Spikes and Code of Princess, but none are 100% confirmed yet. Once they're confirmed by Nicalis, I'll mention them here again. Sociable Soccer, a spiritual successor to the Sensible Soccer series from one of the creators, is coming to the Switch in the future if a backroom meeting talked about by YouTube user truepace is to be believed. The game will have over 30,000 players and online play, and will launch on Steam Early Access next month. Two tennis games for you - Timber Tennis, from the creator of hit flash game Timberman, is coming to Switch soon from Crunching Koalas. It has unlockable skills and online multiplayer. The second game is Tennis World Tour from Bigben Interactive. The game will be a spiritual successor to Top Spin 4, with one of the original producers working on the project. It'll be out sometime next year. Garu Metal, a rhythm game from studio DMM Games, is coming to the Switch sometime in the future. Not many details are available about the game yet. Tobe Yo Dragon, a title from Silver Star Japan about martial artists jumping up a waterfall, was released this week for 200 yen. German TV show Schlag den Star is getting a Switch game with 20 minigames and 8000 questions, with the original host and a character creator. The game will only be available in Austria, Germany and Switzerland on the 29th of this month. Dates! The English Quest of Dungeons release is coming on the 14th of September. Lumo is due out sometime next month. 88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition has been announced officially, with dates of the 2nd of October for North America and the 10th of October in Europe. Syberia is releasing on October 20th. Morphite has been delayed on Switch once again due to technical issues. Updates! Overcooked's promised patch has been pushed, with more performance patches promised. Fast RMX will get its new patch with six new tracks and a Japanese release on the 13th of this month. Cave Story Plus gets its co-op update two days later on the 15th. The next ARMS patch will add, along with assumedly other features, customizable controls. And VOEZ is getting yet another patch with more details coming later this month. And finally this week, two leaked listings - on the Tokyo Game Show site for previously revealed game Steins;Gate Elite there exists a listing for Switch, and a listing for title Aragami showed up on EB Games Australia before being quickly removed. Both games haven't been officially announced yet. That's it for this week. There's a fair few games out like RBI Baseball, Gunvolt and Lego Worlds, but I need to hold onto the money I'd use for them for Pokken Tournament, so I can't check those out unfortunately, and trust me, I asked. I do have code for Neurovoider though, so a video for that should be forthcoming. Thanks to my Patrons, Richard, the other Richard, Bonfire Cow, Brian, Joey, Chen, Eric, Miguel, Felimban, Alan, Kyle, Billy, Gary, Gunnar, Alexander, Yury, Adam, David and Bliz.

We knew it was coming but it's been written in stone; the Vita will no longer be produced as of sometime in 2019 in Japan. North America and Europe already lost production a while ago, so this shutdown will mean the end of new Vitas. Probably about time to stock up if you want backups. The only confirmed game release this week was a Japanese one, so here it is: the next game in the Pro Yakyuu Spirits baseball series from Konami has been confirmed to release sometime next year for Vita and PS4. No other details have been released just yet. Reverse Crawl may be coming to Vita if a trophy list is to be believed. Created by the team behind Vertical Drop Heroes, you take control of the monsters in an RPG, with turn based combat to take down the pesky heroes. There's no details just yet for this one. STAY is getting a physical edition on Play-Asia, with a soundtrack and booklet being included extras. It'll be limited to 1,300 units and the release is coming sometime next month. Some dates for you now. Super Mutant Alien Assault can now be downloaded off the PS Store, effectively getting delayed almost a week. Pato Box was delayed from it's planned launch this week to next week. Jack n' Jill DX will be out sometime before the end of the month. Punch Line's US debut has been pushed back to October 9th. And Romancing Saga 3 will launch in 2019 in Japan on everything, including Vita. Whether a Western Vita release will happen for it is...unclear. And finally this week, we have four different Japanese visual novels that may not come west to talk about, so I'm going to do it all in one segment. The sequel to Root Letter, subtitled Last Answer, had its platforms confirmed for Vita and PS4 this week. Kenka Bancho Otome is getting a sequel subtitled 2nd Rumble next year. Kin'iro no Corda: Octave, a cross-over of previous games in the musically-oriented otome series from Koei Tecmo, is releasing on the 14th of Feburary. And the creators of Nurse Love Addiction have announced Yumeutsutsu Re:Master, a story about a girl joining a development studio. No emesis-yuri, please. That's it for this week. What do I plan on doing now the Vita's actually going away? Well. Long story short, I'm not going anywhere. I'm going to get onto doing more general gaming videos...eventually. My Switch needs to get back close to my recording gear, but I'll make it happen. Alongside some videos for PC and PS4, that'll be enough to keep me going in the long run. There is one thing I want to detail, though; the Vita Weekly Update will be ending sometime this year. As for when, I don't know, but I don't plan on continuing into 2019 with it, as eventually I'll be doing multiple weeks at a time with no worthwhile news, and honestly, I don't want to be doing that. End it on a decent note, not a drought. I hate to be self-advertising, but remember that there's Patreon and Play-Asia affiliate links you can use in the description to support me if you like my content, even if it's not Vita related anymore come sometime next year. Speaking of which, thanks to my Patrons.

The Punch Line game has officially, finally been announced by PQube for the west, after multiple leaks, preorder pages and even an official flyer. The Kotaro Uchikoshi-headed adventure title will be out in North America and Europe sometime this Winter. Grab the Bottle, a puzzle game in which you control an arm of infinite length in order to do what the title suggests, has been marked for a Vita release by a trophy list for the game. No release announcement has been made yet. Limited Run Games will be doing two physical editions for Super Hydorah, available on the 8th of June at 10AM and 6PM EST. There will be a regular edition and a special edition with soundtrack, full manual, poster and keychain. Just one date this week in the form of Inksplosion, which'll be out in next week's store update as announced on Ratalaika Games' Twitter. And finally this week, Minecraft's upcoming Update Aquatic, which adds new life to the underwater parts of the game, will be the final update for the Vita platform for the game. The update will mark the end of three and a half years of support. Flashpoint has taken up the majority of my time recently and without much in the way of Vita stuff to take a look at, there might not be many videos this week either. I do have a backlog video for Monday, but other than waiting for my copy of Power Pro and Inksplosion to come up, I've basically got nothing. And I haven't forgotten another round of the top 100, but I just haven't had that much time to get to it. I might have to cut it down into "another top 20" or something.

As reported on last week, Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, and also it's successor, Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth, are coming West in spring and fall 2017 respectively. The localization's being handled by Atlus. Both games will be available physically in North America, but only digitally in Europe. There will be no dub. Also reported on last week was Talisman Digital Edition, the game adaptation of the physical board game, which has also been announced as coming out in spring 2017. It will include over 50 characters and the first seven expansions. It'll support cross-buy, cross-play and even cross-play in the same room. God Wars: Future Past has been dated in the west - it'll launch March 28th in North America and March 31st in Europe. Oddly enough, this is before the Japanese release, which was recently delayed to April. The English version will have dual-audio. Just one more date this week; horror title Uncanny Valley is launching on Vita on the 7th of Feburary in North America and the 8th of Feburary in Europe. It's also noteworthy that Salt & Sanctuary may be next month according to the dev; he previously thought it would be out this month, though. And finally this week, developer Ratalaika Games have said they plan on bringing over their titles to Vita. They're responsible for such games as Peasant Knight, Plantera and League of Evil. That's it for this week. Not that much planned for the coming week since there's nothing out, although I do have a couple of imports on the way so I should probably get around to Bullet Girls 2 before those show up. I'll try to get a video on the new Dariusburst DLC out too. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it.

(A bunch of other stuff happened before I could edit this. Va11-Ha11a's release got moved up, Poppy Works have a new Vita game in cert, and Time Recoil is also going through cert. These will all be mentioned next week.) Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. Sony are releasing a new "Value Pack" Vita bundle in Japan on the 22nd of November. For the same price as the Vita currently you'll get a 16GB memory card bundled in with the system. It'll be available in black or aqua blue. Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten DX, a tower defense game in which the towers are akin to RPG characters that can level up and earn new abilities, was rated for the Vita this week on the PEGI ratings board. No official announcement has been made just yet, but the developer has talked about the port on his Twitter once or twice. North, a 3D cyberpunk-themed puzzle title based around political commentary about the refugee crisis, is coming to Vita if a trophy list spotted this week is to be believed. It's probably being published by Sometimes You once more, as they're listed as the publishers of the PC version on Steam. Sokoban Next, a 3D version of the classic box pushing puzzle game only with eggs and dragons, was listed to come out on the US store this week on The Drop, but never actually did. Whether it'll be out later this week or next week is unknown. The game has been out in European territories for several months now. And finally this week, after the recent release of the Season Six table pack FarSight has announced that they won't be releasing any more tables for the Vita and PS3 versions of the Pinball Arcade due to engine constraints. This officially ends Vita support for both the major pinball titles. That's it for this week. Well, now that both Zen Pinball and Pinball Arcade are done and dusted I'm going to have to get a livestream going for them at some point. Speaking of livestreams, however, guess what's happening on Tuesday the 7th at 12pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time? Yeah, Hot Shots Golf time, peeps. I'm also currently working on videos for Summon Night 6, Demon Gaze 2 and, of all things, Broken Sword 5, they should all be out within the next two weeks.

Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters now has a confirmed release date in North America. The game will release to retail and digital stores on the 10th of March, 2015. Aksys describes it as a visual novel that mixes in RPG elements to create a new spin on the genre. Steins;Gate, the infamous visual novel recently localized to English on PC, is getting an official port to Vita and PS3 in 2015. The announcement didn't go into much detail, however it was confirmed the game is coming to both North America and Europe. NIS America have announced they're releasing Tokyo New World Record: Operation Abyss as Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy. The dungeon RPG developed by the team who made Demon Gaze comes to North America and Europe in Spring 2015. This comes hot on the heels that the developer's Experience are making a sequel with the title Operation Babel, coming to Japan on the 30th of April, 2015. Square Enix has announced a brand new SaGa game for the 25th anniversary of the SaGa franchise is coming exclusively to Vita. Not much was shown of the game except for two pieces of concept art and a release date of 2015. Deception IV is receiving an expanded package in the form of Kagero: The Other Princess. The new version contains a new protagonist, a new Quest Mode with 100 levels, new traps and more features. The game releases in Japan on the 26th of March, 2015. Playism, a Japanese indie publisher, are bringing a bunch of games to Vita and PS4 in Japan. The fresh announcement from this publisher is Croixleur Sigma, currently available on PC, is coming to Vita sometime in 2015. A bunch of Touhou Project fan games were confirmed for PlayStation consoles this week. The Vita games include Mystery Gensokyo, a roguelike, and The Genius of Sappheiros, an RPG. Two Touhou themes were also made available for Vita this week on the Japanese store. Some surprise releases this week - both Switch Galaxy Ultra and Fieldrunners 2 had surprise launches on European Vitas this week, with American Vitas due to receive the games in the next store update. Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee also surprise launched in both North America and Europe this week as well. A couple of Japanese release dates here. The sequel to XBlaze Code Embryo, subtitled as Lost Memories, is coming to Vita and PS3 on the 9th of April next year. Meanwhile, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is coming to Japan on the 12th of March. Some lighthearted news - Idea Factory International have announced they are localizing Hyperdimension Neptunia U in the coming Spring. This is confirmed for both North America and Europe. And finally this week, a couple more European release dates - Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2 has dropped back a week to the 6th of Feburary for the retail release, and the 11th for the digital. Meanwhile, Baboon will release in Europe on the 28th of Janurary. That's it for this week. Here's our channel weekly update. I spent a lot of damn money getting those videos out a little early for you guys so I hope you're happy *pouty face*. Oh, and considering the next weekly update won't be until after Christmas, merry Christmas. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. Strictly Limited Games have announced their newest project; an unreleased early 90s platformer shooter from DICE, yes, that DICE, for Sega Genesis and Commodore Amiga under the working title Project Hardcore. It'll be launching on Vita and PS4 in the first half of next year both digitally and physically. A tweet from a Zeyboyd Games developer has marked Saturnine Games' Antipole DX for the Vita. It's a retro speedrun-oriented platformer with a gravity switching mechanic. There's been no official announcement yet, but it doesn't seem like a lie. Hamsterdam, a cartoony rhythm brawler that appears to be controlled by touchscreen swipes, has been announced for Vita, Switch and mobile devices, and it's currently seeking eight thousand dollars on Kickstarter. It's a fair bit over halfway to that goal with 43 days to go. I bring this game up mainly because it looks almost 100% finished, and just needs that last push over the goal line. And finally this week, we have two more announcements from Pixel.lu; their previously stated "it might it might not" game Plutonium Pirates has been confirmed to run on Vita and will get a release on the platform towards the end of the year, and have also confirmed that another game of theirs, a remake of the Atari 2600 game H.E.R.O. from Activison titled Bobby Bombastic will also be making its way to the Vita in the same time frame. That's it for this week. I apologize once again for not being able to confirm a video date for Bullet Girls Phantasia because I have been not so great health-wise this week, The Long Reach was something I got recorded just before I went downhill. I'll make my best attempt to get something done for it this week, but yeah. Tetra's Escape is out on Monday.

Apologies for the 360p, blame my internet going bad. We Are Doomed, twin stick shooter from vertex pop, is coming out in North America on the 9th of February. The game will be crossbuy and it has also been confirmed to have PSTV support. One Piece: Burning Blood is releasing in Europe on the 3rd of June, with North America confirmed for sometime in June as well. The game is getting a Pre-order Edition as well in Western territories, which will have a steelcase and three variants of Luffy as playable characters. Two more western dates here. Stranger of Sword City has been delayed to April 26 for North America and April 29 for Europe. Civilization Revolution 2+ has been delayed to later in the year, missing its launch date last week. And PSP game Breath of Fire III is making an appearance on the North American PS Store sometime in February for $10. The game has already been out for a long time in Europe. Two dates for Japanese things here. Hero Must Die is getting a demo in Japan on the 10th of February. And Coven and Labyrinth of Refrain, NIS's dungeon crawler project, has been delayed to June 23. Finally this week, Gundam Extreme Vs Force has received a free update in Japan adding a more extensive Free Battle mode, and another free update coming soon will add six new suits, control rebinding and a Course Battle mode which appears to mimic the Extreme Vs. arcade mode. It's assumed that these modes will be added to the Western version when it releases. That's it for this week. Channel update. Would love to tell you when I can get a video on Saturday Morning RPG up, but I can't, because it was a two whopper. I redeemed review code for Saturday Morning RPG a week ago now and the Vita version wasn't available for some reason. The day the game comes out and I can actually get it, the update issues a lot of people have been having bit me on the backside and I haven't been able to get to the store on my Vita to actually get it. So when will I have a video on that? No idea, up to Sony to sort that out. More videos will come when Sony fixes what they managed to somehow break. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

BlueMaxima's Top 100 PlayStation Vita Games

I made a quick addendum with some more games to check out here: https://youtu.be/7g9AKx03tUU Click the More button below to read some notes on the list (but you don't have to in order to enjoy the video), and for my usual support link - I don't get any revenue for this one because of the trailers. Note 1: Listed availability is North American and does not take into account small/single print runs such as Limited Run Games or Fangamer, due to said print runs being small enough to encourage scalpers and ridiculously high prices for the games in question. Basically, if it wasn't sold on Amazon or in GameStop, you won't find it listed as Physical. Note 2: Digital size does not take patches into account, as they vary from game to game and region to region, not to mention DLC. This won't affect most games' sizes in a major way, but some will get pretty big patches. Have a gigabyte spare, just in case. Note 3: All dates listed are American releases dates, although dates that are just numbers will be listed in Day/Month/Year format, as that's the date system I'm used to. The only exception is the Japanese releases; their listings are when the English version (if there is one) came out or when the Japanese came out, respectively. Note 4: I've used trailers from all over the place from this video, and some of the trailers may have come from different consoles. While the trailers might be more graphically impressive than the Vita versions of said games, I've tried to show trailers that are as representative of the original games as possible. Note 5: I checked this video for mistakes a LOT, and if I have any corrections to make (ala. they're pointed out to me) they'll be listed at the end of this note. * Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth was not released physically in North America, the Physical/Digital for that game was a mistake. Note 6: I didn't number this list because I would have found it impossible, you could ask me tomorrow and I'd come up with a different order than today. At least this way every game gets an opportunity to stand on its own. Note 7: This list definitely will be outdated soon, and while I won't be redoing the entire thing, I might make a "20 more" or "50 more" when the time is right.

Support me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/bluemaxima Or buy something on Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. Two games have been unveiled by trophy listings; Jack n' Jill DX, a retro themed platformer from mobile platforms, and Word Search by POWGI which appears to have come out on Nintendo platforms. No dates or details for either. Two physical releases detailed this week. Devious Dungeon is getting a physical release thanks to Play-Asia and EastAsiaSoft. It'll be available on the 9th of August for $34.99USD. It'll be limited to 1,250 copies. And Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds will release on the 10th of August at 10am thanks to Limited Run Games; it'll have a special edition, although what's inside it isn't 100% confirmed yet. Two games got updates this week; Musynx got an update which adds a new "jump" functionality for quickly scrolling through songs, and 11 new, free songs, including the theme for Nekopara, and a patch for Secret of Mana that contains multiple bugfixes. Two dates this week: Tetra's Escape has been dated for the 8th of August for Vita, and The Long Reach has been dated for the 14th of August in North America and the day after for Europe. And finally this week, Zanki Zero received a demo in the Japanese regions. The save carries over to the full version, if you plan on getting the Japanese one. That's it for this week. So, to make a long story short, Flashpoint is taking a ridiculous amount of my time, and continues to do so. So a couple of things need to change around here; mainly that this week's videos are going to be Better Late than Nevers, and that the video rate overall is probably going to slow down to two videos a week, just to give me more time to get stuff done. I haven't got Chasm yet; despite multiple attempts at asking them for code they didn't send me any and my budget is a little low due to abnormal circumstances so it might be a while before I get it. I'm sorry about this, but when your other project is retweeted by one of the developers of Minecraft, shit kinda gets real. Patreon's way of sorting the Patrons has changed so the way I thank them will change it too; Adam, Alan, Billy, Bliz, Brett, Caleb, Chen, David, Eddier, Eric, Gary, joey, the other Joey, JR, Twee-otch, Kyle, Matthew, Miguel, Mithaldu, the other Richard, Raymond, Rodrigo and Z.

Here's the survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1BWzakC31dwYIAILt3TNIGeiEBIfqhs8N-8QctaJdnk0/ Valkyria Azure Revolution is coming to the west as simply Valkyria Revolution in Spring 2017 on PS4, Vita and Xbox One for both North America and Europe. The Vita version will be digital only. In Japan the game will get a Prologue Demo on Vita on the 26th of December which will let you play through the namesake chapter and transfer your save to the full game. Air Race Speed, previously released on 3DS and mobile platforms, is coming to North America in next week's store update. Qubic Games, the developer, have also confirmed they plan on publishing several more previously announced games for Vita, but that's for the Dates section. Japan is getting The Legend of Heroes Akatsuki no Kiseki, a PC free to play RPG, on their Vitas come 2017. Not many other details were given about the release. Don't expect a localization for this one. The Vita version of Dex appears to have re-emerged from development hell with a trophy list specifically for a Vita version of the game appearing on the usual places. No other details on when the port will launch just yet. The Vita version of Doorkickers appears to have been given the go-ahead by Sony, with the game's main developer being approved for development on Vita. He stated on Twitter that the plan is to get Doorkickers out first, then wait and see for the sequel. Danganronpa V3 is getting a special Vita release from Sony's Japanese store. The Vita will come with the usual decorated Vita in either black or white and a special theme for 20,980 yen. It'll be out the same date as the game, Janurary 12. I'm going to quickly talk about two cancellations before we move onto the dates: the Vita version of Electronic Super Joy has been cancelled by the studio porting it, citing poor sales on other PS platforms. And the Vita version of Drive!Drive!Drive! has been postponed by the developer who claims he ran out of time trying to get the Vita version to work. Time for dates! Fate/Extella is coming to North America on the 17th of Janurary and Europe on the 20th of Janurary. There's a special edition in both territories with artbook, trading cards and poster. Toukiden 2 has been confirmed for Spring 2017 across North America and Europe, but they still haven't confirmed the platforms the localization will release on for some reason. Active Soccer 2 DX released this week in Europe for 10 Euro or your equivalent; assumedly North America will get it next week, but don't quote me on that. MidBoss's 2064: Read Only Memories Vita version has been delayed, it won't launch with the PS4 version on the 17th of Janurary. No replacement date was given. 10tons Xenoraid will launch on the 10th of Janurary. God Wars: Future Past has been delayed from Feburary 23 to spring 2017 in Japan; no word if this affects the American version but it probably will. And finally, Qubic Games claims that they will be publishing Mr Pumpkin Adventure, Polara, Koi AND Fairune all sometime next year for both North America and Europe. And finally this week, in an odd situation, web browser game turned full Vita title KanColle Kai will stop being sold in Janurary 2017. Digital sales will be stopped entirely and physical production will stop - shops will be allowed to sell out their remaining stock but that's it. So if you want that, go grab it now, it won't be around for much longer. That's it for this week. Man, that dates section was a scorcher wasn't it. So I have a survey in the description below that I'd like everyone who watches this channel to fill out for me if you have the time, it's not long, should only take a minute. As for upcoming videos, the Dariusburst DLC didn't come out this week so it'll probably be next week along with videos of Shante and Air Race Speed, hopefully I have code coming in for both of those. As for videos for the next couple of no-release weeks, I have plenty of imports on the way - everything from SaGa Scarlet Grace to World Trigger Borderless Mission. So hopefully those will fill the void. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

The game's being published by Headup Games and has no release date yet. The lead puzzle designer of Limbo has announced his game 140, coming to Vita and PS4 in the summer. It's a rhythm platformer where jumps will have to be tied to the beat of the music. MilitAnt was announced for Vita, PS3 and PS4 this week. It's coming in late Spring of this year, and involves platforming and shooting lots of different kinds of bugs. Toukiden 2 is getting both cross-play with its PS4 version, and a Vita demo on Japan's PSN, according to the Japanese arm of Koei Tecmo.

The game will run in native resolution and 30 frames per second, and will include both cross-save and cross-play with the PS4 and PS3 versions.

Gundam Extreme VS Force is coming to North America on the 12th of July, no Europe date yet. And finally this week, CyberThreat, a strategy RPG focused around a bunch of schoolkids trying to stop murders with technology, finally has a release window of 2017 for Vita. The game emphasizes relationships with your friends and high replayability through two main characters. That's it for this week. Channel update. Videos on Virtua Tennis 4 and Severed are coming very shortly, like, in a couple of days shortly. Don't think there are any other videos that are there to get done, so I'm just gonna sit back and relax a bit. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

Doryoku Way: Conflict, a scrolling shooter developed in Spain, is coming to Vita, PS3 and PS4 towards the end of 2016. The game includes several different modes and the ability to customize your ship. Saturday Morning RPG, the game based around nostalgic cartoons from the 1980s, is getting a physical release thanks to Limited Run Games. The game will be released on Vita and PS4 physically on the 29th of Janurary at 2 different times, 10AM and 6PM EST, with 2500 copies available. Notably, the game hasn't come out digitally for Vita yet, so one might assume that the game will release digitally during the same week. And finally this week, Signal to Noise, a shooter game that generates levels based on imported music, is coming to Vita according to a listing on the game's IndieDB page. No other details are available at the moment. That's it for this week. Channel update. Short week, huh? I've been a bit under the weather for a while so it may take me a bit to get around to checking out Volume, but I will if I can. I recorded the PS Mobile videos a bit in advance though, the rest of those should be going up throughout next week. And by the way, if you didn't watch the 3rd one, go back and watch the segment on Disillusions Manga Horror. That game is so bad that I can't help but tell you to look for yourself. Anyway, like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

The big announcement this week is Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night, a duo followup to Persona 4: Dancing All Night. Both games are being made by the same team and are releasing in Spring 2018 in Japan, no localization confirmed, but honestly I'd be amazed if they didn't. Ratalaika Games are at it again with two new ports for Vita - Squareboy vs Bullies, a retro-inspired beat-em-up previously released on mobiles, and Twin Robots, a twin perspective puzzle platformer. Twin Robots has been submitted for QA so it should be out soon, while Squareboy vs Bullies doesn't have a date yet, although Ratalaika are hoping for September or October. 36 Fragments of Midnight, a procedurally generated platformer from developer Petite Games, was announced for the Vita and Switch this week. It'll be released on the 7th of August on Steam; the console versions don't have a date. Just one date this week: Mary Skelter Nightmares releases on the 19th of September in North America and the 22nd of September in Europe. And finally this week, a shutdown I didn't notice coming so I apologize for failing to report it, but the social network service Near has been shut down - any attempt to use it brings up an error message. That's it for this week. Who knows, maybe one of these weeks I'll run out of things to announce shutdowns of. Anyway, since no major Vita releases are coming next week, I've got two import videos ready to go if worse comes to worse. The capybara will protect your innocent eyes. I have no idea how to get onto the press for Undertale, so I'm probably getting that the same time as all of you, don't expect a video of that on launch. Thanks to my patrons, Richard, Brian, Joey, Chen, Eric, Miguel, Felimban, Alan, Gunnar, Alexander, Yury, Adam, David and Bliz. Like, subscribe, outros are outros.

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth appears to be coming to Vita, thanks to a couple of tweets made by the founder of Nicalis. A poll was recently conducted by the same person to consider the possibility of the game coming if it was made to run at 30 frames per second. No official announcement has been made. Wanted Corp, a twin stick shooter that released on PS3 five years ago, appears to be getting a port to Vita thanks to the effort of EKO Software, revealed thanks to a German ratings board leak. No official announcement has been made for this one either. SPL appear to be bringing two new games, The Keeper of 4 Elements, a tower defense title, and Battalion Commander, a scrolling shooter style game, to Vita next week. The two games are apparently ports of PC flash games. A trophy list has appeared for Stranded: A Mars Adventure, a mobile endless runner cross platformer game. No official announcement has been made yet. Along with announcing the release date of Touhou Gensou Wanderer as Feburary 7, NIS America have also announced they're localizing Touhou Double Focus and releasing it on the same day. Europe gets both games three days later on Feburary 10th. Both games are digital only on Vita. Just one date this week. Exile's End has been announced for October 25th in North America. It'll cost $10USD. And finally this week, following up on the surprise of the Dragon Quest Builders demo a little while ago, a World of Final Fantasy dungeon demo will be released in next week's store update worldwide. That's it for this week. I was hoping next week would stay relatively clear so I could get some imports in; seems that I don't have that benefit now. Valkyrie Drive video coming soon, hopefully I'll be able to get one or two imports done before the new games are out. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it.

The much wanted Twitch app showed up for Vita this week in North America and Europe. The app lets you watch live streams or recordings with a special section for PlayStation streamers. Get it for free via the PS Store. Aksys Games have announced they're localizing Tokyo Xanadu, Falcom's RPG, for Vita and PC in the first half of next year. Notably, this doesn't include the recently announced enhanced PS4 version. Aksys Games also announced they're localizing the updated Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters release, now subtitled Daybreak Special Gigs World Tour. No date was given, but the game will release digital only for Vita. PQube have announced they're bringing over Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni, the outrageous hack and slash from the developer of Senran Kagura, to North America and Europe sometime this year. No detail on physical or digital was given. Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, a sequel to difficult retro platformer Mutant Mudds, has been leaked for Vita and PS4 via its trophy list. The game hasn't been officially announced yet. World End Economica, a three chapter visual novel, is coming to the west thanks to Sekai Project and Limited Run Games. As implied, the game will be physical and digital. No specific date was given. Spy Chameleon, a stealth puzzle game from developer Unfinished Pixel, is coming to Vita and PS4 on the 21st of July. The game has 75 levels split across five missions and is built around speedrunning. The game will most likely be $5 or your regional equivalent. Kai-ri-Sei Million Arthur, another Square Enix mobile game, is making the jump to Vita in Japan. The game has extra content over the smartphone version. The 'pre-registration' period begins July 8, while the game is due out in the Summer. Dates! Type:Rider is coming out on the 12th of July in North America and Europe. 10 Second Ninja X is coming out on the 19th of July in North America and Europe. Bunny Must Die: Chelsea and the 7 Devils is releasing in Japan on July 21. And while this isn't a confirmed date, Mystery Chronicle: One Way Heroics has a listing on Steam that seems to be pegging it for the 12th of July as well, and my tweet pointing this possibility out was liked by Spike Chunsoft, so it may well be true. And finally this week, an English trophy list for Uppers has been noticed on the usual places, hinting the game may soon be getting a localization. No official announcement has been made yet. That's it for this week. Channel update...or not, because I have way too much to talk about to fit in just this end bit, so tune in tomorrow for a little bit of discussion and Dariusburst.

Super Life of Pixel, the sequel to PS Mobile cult classic Life of Pixel, was announced this week on the PlayStation Blog from original dev Super Icon and publisher White Moon Dreams. It'll have 19 console themes with 100 levels and several powerups, a new mechanic for the sequel. It'll be out on the 22nd of August. Fill-A-Pix: Phil's Epic Adventure, a puzzle game from the developers of Pic-a-Pix, released by surprise this week on the PlayStation Store for 8 US dollars with cross-buy compatibility. It contains 120 monochrome number puzzles based on locations of the world. Ratalaika Games have announced that their next Vita port will be the previously detailed puzzle platformer Tetra's Escape. It'll be out some time next month and it'll be cross-buy. There was a ton of visual novel, otome and BL related announcements and dates this week, and I'm not gonna claim to know anything about them or even be able to pronounce them, so if you want more info than the title and date, please use the script to Google the names of these. I guarantee we won't be seeing 90% of these. * Charade Maniacs from Otomate, releasing on the 9th of August. * Floral Flowlove from Entergram, releasing on the 23rd of August. * Boku to Nurse no Kenshu Nisshi, from Entergram, also releasing on the 23rd of August. * Piofore no Bansho from Otomate, releasing on the 30th of August. * Koshotengai no Hashihime, from Dramatic Create, releasing on the 27th of September. * Sanzen Sekai Yuugi: Re Multi Universe Myself from Dramatic Create, releasing on the 27th of September. * Wand of Fortune R2 FD: Kimi ni Sasageru Epilogue from Otomate, releasing on the 4th of October. * Variable Barricade from Otomate, releasing on the 11th of October. * Sakura Sakura, from Entergram, releasing on the 25th of October. * And Beniiro Tenjou Ayakashi Kitan Futaai, from Dramatic Create, releasing sometime this year. And finally this week, we have a couple of date details. Sengoku Hime 7 has broken out of delay hell again from SystemSoft to attempt to come out on the 11th of October. Super Mutant Alien Assault now has a Vita trophy list after its PEGI rating, implying an incoming release, and Ouren, the head of Poppy Games, has said one of his upcoming ports has probably reached certification for Vita and PS4. That's it for this week. I didn't quite get Ice Cream Surfer out this week, did I? Ah well, it'll be out Monday. Along with a video in the middle of the week with a surprisingly high requested video, and then, if not Chasm, then a Better Late than Never video to round out the week for us. Thankfully I have most of this taken care of already so I can relax for my birthday tomorrow.
