PS Vita Weekly Update #197 - 23/04/2016
 
02:57
Indie title Bridge Constructor is coming to Vita according to French site Pockett. The game has 40 levels of building bridges across large valleys and rivers, trying to get passengers across safely. 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 Vita demo has no date yet, and the game has not yet been announced for localization. The game's releasing June 30 in Japan. Dragon Quest Heroes II has also received details of its Vita port. 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. The game releases in Japan on May 27, no western announcement yet. Dates! The Sun and Moon shows up in next week's update for North America and Europe. Neverending Nightmare comes to Vita on the 3rd of May in North America and Europe. Same for Azkend 2 by 10tons. The Last Blade 2 is coming to Vita on the 24th of May, with cross-save, cross-play, and a game theme also confirmed. God Eater Resurrection will be out on the 28th of June in North America and the 30th of August in Europe, while God Eater 2: Rage Burst is out on the 30th of August for North America and Europe. 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.

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.
PS Vita Weekly Update #175 - 21/11/2015

First up, a surprise release - after the trophies were leaked on several websites, a port of the original Super Nintendo game Super Star Wars launched on Vita this week for $10. The updated game contains filters, saving and loading the game state, and cross-buy and cross save with the also released PS4 version. Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours has been announced for a western release by publisher Degica. The game will be out on the 30th of November, which is an offset release date compared to normal, and before the Japanese date. The game contains hundreds upon hundreds of stages, over 40 bosses and nine ships to fly. Ray Gigant, the Experience Inc dungeon crawler, has been announced by publisher Acttil for a digital-only release in North America and Europe in Spring 2016. Acttil were previously behind the localization of Superbeat Xonic. Read Only Memories, a cyberpunk retro-inspired adventure game from developer MidBoss, has been announced for Vita and PS4. The game claims to have multiple solutions to every puzzle and a myriad of endings affected by said puzzles. There's no date yet. Developer QUByte Interactive, who recently released High Tech Racing for the Vita, have announced two more games for the platform. The first is 99Vidas, a beat-em-up based around podcast group Catarse. The second is Recruits, a top-down shooter focused on heavy action and soldier customization. The same Japanese team that developed the Slim Vita Remote Play grip have announced an updated version for the original Vita models. This new version doubles as a cover, locking in and covering the top of the Vita so that it's held in the grip better. There's no date or price for the new grip yet. Odin Sphere: Leifdrasir has been given an updated release window of Spring 2016 for North and South America. The game will be retail and digital, with the Vita retail version's first print coming with a softcover artbook. Finally this week, three release date updates. Atelier Escha and Logy Plus will release on the 19th and 20th of Janurary in North America and Europe for PSN only. Coven and Labyrinth of Refrain, the dungeon crawler from Nippon Ichi Software, has been delayed to March 17 for polishing in Japan. And Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders from Planet Space finally has a confirmed release date of December 8 in North America. That's it for this week. Channel update. I got Lost Song a few hours ago and I'm playing through it right now, it's a lot more simple than I was expecting so I might be able to get a video up by Monday, but don't hold your breath. As for other videos, I do have a copy of Teslagrad which I'll jump into right afterwards. Looks like Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires won't be available until after launch though, which is a shame. 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. inXile Entertainment, celebrating the funding of their Kickstarter for The Bard's Tale IV, has released the 2004 title, The Bard's Tale Remastered and Resnarkled, for Vita this week in North America and soon in Europe. It's an action-RPG with a humorous bend, with voice actors from places such as The Princess Bride's cast. NeverEnd, a roguelite dungeon crawler from the same developer that brought you the Energy duology and It's Spring Again, is launching on the Vita on the 25th of August in North America and the 13th of September in Europe. No price details but the Steam version is two dollars. The developer of Unepic has revealed his other sci-fi platformer title, Ghost, is being worked on for Vita. It won't be along in the short term, with the dev wanting to do games on other platforms first, but he rebutted someone claiming the Vita port was a waste of time on Twitter, so it doesn't seem to be an announce-it-and-cancel-it affair. Another free to play online RPG came to Japanese Vitas this week. Goetia - A Thousand Demons And An Infinite Tower has battles with many characters on screen, and the Vita version will have lots of exclusive events. No date for the West, and you should probably not bother to expect one. One piece of bad news before the dates this week - the Vita version of Assault Android Cactus has been "halted" by the developers and doesn't have a good chance of starting up again. What caused the halt is unknown. Two dates and some speculation this week. Touhou Sky Arena will launch in Japan on the 14th of September, with all the DLC of the PS4 version. Burly Men at Sea will launch in North America and Europe on the 19th of September. And while Papers, Please hasn't been dated as of yet, it's been rated on the Australian ratings board, possibly indicating a nearby release. And finally this week, a Humble Bundle. If you have a PSN account in North America or some South American countries, you can spend $1 at Humble Bundle for copies of XCOM and Civilization Revolution 2 for Vita. Just figured I'd let you all know that one, since that's a pretty great deal. That's it for this week. I have both The Bard's Tale and NeverEnd and I'll be working on videos for them over the weekend, so expect those at some point within the next week. At least I have actual videos to put out this time so I don't have to rely on the backlog or import queue too much. Honestly though, I'm just waiting for code for Windjammers and Utawarerumono. Those'll be great. Thanks to my Patrons, Richard, Joey, Brian, Bonfire Cow, Chen, Eric, Miguel, Felimban, Alan, Gary, Gunnar, Alexander, Yury, Adam, David and Bliz.

Sony has released firmware Vita firmware 3.36 with the usual set of stability fixes. Nothing to see here, move along. On the 26th of Feburary, limited edition Vita and Vita TV models will be made available from Sony of Japan's webstores based on Yakuza 0. A companion app for the same game will be available on the Japanese Vita store on the same day as well. And finally this week, Toukiden Kiwami is the official English title of the Toukiden expanded release, and is releasing in North America on the 31st of March and Europe on the 27th of March both physically and digitally for PS Vita and PS4. The game is over twice the size of the original, with 100 new Mitama, twice the stages, new story and new wepaons and new hunters, along with cross-save and cross-play. Channel update. I'm working on videos for Brandish The Dark Revenant, Atelier Ayesha Plus and Citizens of Earth as we speak, so if you're considering them be ready for videos sometime soonish. Until then, like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.
PS Vita Weekly Update #219 - 24/09/2016

Oceanhorn, an isometric action adventure game released this week on PS4 and Xbox One, has announced they plan to do a Vita port after a poll on their Twitter. There's no other details on the Vita port yet. This is gonna be a weird segment, so bear with me. Updates and DLC! Demon Gaze II is getting a free DLC campaign titled Call of the Grimodar, launching sometime in the fall. It promises to be just as long as the main story. Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will be receiving multiple post-launch updates, including both free quests and costumes, and a Season Pass that will contain a 3 episode story arc launching sometime through 2017. Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours is getting two new DLC packs: a CAVE collaboration with Dodonpachi, Deathsmiles and Ketsui, and an Eighting collaboration with Sorcer Striker, Battle Garegga and Sokyu Gurentai. And finally, Toukiden 2 is getting a Ruins update which contains new battles against strong demons for powerful equipment on the 29th of this month, and a free to play version on October 6. Dates! Dungeon Travelers 2-2 has been redated for sometime in 2017 thanks to a leaflet included in the Japanese release of the new Utawarerumono game. God Wars launches in Japan on the 23rd of Feburary. Akiba's Beat has been delayed to an unspecified timeframe in Japan for the Vita version; the PS4 version launches December 15. And finally this week, trophy lists have appeared for two games: Uncanny Valley, a 2D survival horror game, and Vertical Drop Heroes HD, a procedural roguelike platformer RPG. Neither game has been officially announced just yet. That's it for this week. Not much this week, but after last week, I'm fine with what we got. I don't have any videos planned over the next couple of days but I will try to get a video on Daisenryaku Exceed II out, but the problem is, it's a strategy game, and I'm dumb, so yeah, if it does come out it might not be the best. I also plan on doing a video on Darkest Dungeon as well, I just can't guarantee when that will be out because I don't have code yet. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

Buy something, even cheap, at Play-Asia to support me from here: http://www.play-asia.com/?tagid=1091087 Use "BLUEVITA" for a discount. Script follows. The developer of Super Blackout, Fordesoft Games, has announced Emerald Shores for Vita, PSTV and PS4, a platformer with heavy inspiration from Super Mario World, only with a levelling system, 20 levels with bosses, and a remix mode to make the game harder. It's coming out at the end of the summer at $10 with cross buy, although he's said he's considering a different price. Plague Road, a game heavily teased by Luc Bernard, is coming to the Vita soon. It's a turn based strategy game with roguelike elements, including permadeath and an upgradeable farm between runs. It'll support cross-buy and the PSTV. The KonoSuba visual novel has been confirmed for Vita and PS4, with a few details on the plot. It's an original story not from the novel or anime that involves Kazuma getting a cursed ring that automatically steals women's panties, and raising the funds to get it off. The game is 40% complete, so no dates. Two Japanese indies have been announced this week. The first is yet another Touhou fan game, Touhou Genso Maroku W, a traditional turn based RPG with a Shikigami system, in which you equip your main characters with up to three to change their battle style. It's due out in June in Japan. The second indie is bullet hell shooter Gundemoniums, from the team behind Bunny Must Die. Gundemoniums is an expanded port of a remake of a remake; the original title, Gundemonium, was released in 2003, Gundemonium Recollection was a remake of that for the West with new content and widescreen support, and now Gundemoniums adds new characters and gameplay systems on that. It's due in Japan sometime in 2017. Dates! Fairune came out by surprise in Europe this week, and it'll be out April 11th in North America. Lichtspeer launches on Vita on the 11th of April, with confirmed cross buy and cross save. Akiba's Beat launches May 16th in North America and May 19th in Europe. Valkyria Revolution has been confirmed for the 27th of June in North America and the 30th of June in Europe. And finally, the Specter of Torment DLC campaign for Shovel Knight is launching sometime in April. That's it for this week. No plans for videos until Monday at least, since that's when my copy of Musou Stars should be coming in. Might be a fairly empty week even with that. I'm gonna try putting up the Switch Weekly Update tomorrow instead of today, just to see how it goes. That, and I have more time to edit it if something new turns up. Thanks to my Patrons, Eric, Alan, Adam, David and Bliz. 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. 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.

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.

Script follows. Horror title NightCry, which was promised for release back in 2016 on Vita but never materialized, is apparently still getting its Vita port from publisher Playism in Japan, with even a price set of 2,296 yen. It's unknown if this version is coming West yet. We had one surprise release this week: Dead Ahead Zombie Warfare, a port of the strategy title of the same name on mobile platforms. The game costs $20 and has several microtransaction-like DLCs. And finally this week, the Pinball Arcade has lost the licenses to the tables from Williams and Bally included in their games, and as such they will be removed from Pinball Arcade before the 30th of June. They've confirmed that they won't be able to put the tables on sale before their disappearance, so if you want them, get them now. Those who own them will retain them. That's it for this week. Welcome to week three of Flashpoint being ridiculously popular. I'm working on a video of Power Pro 2018 but I'm going to give myself as much time as possible to get it done, you'll see it at the end of next week, after a Better Late than Never and a video of Dead Ahead. Hopefully something else will be out by then, but we'll see.

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. Spike Chunsoft recently put up a job listing for a new Danganronpa title - they're seeking a character designer, 3D designer and game programmer for a new Vita and PS4 project, in the action genre. There's been no official announcement as of yet. Deadbolt, a one-hit-and-you're-dead stealth action platformer from the team behind Risk of Rain, was rated for the Vita on the European ratings board this week. The game has over 25 missions, 30 weapons and 35 enemy types. No official announcement here either. Russian Subway Dogs, an arcade-styled game about feeding the rambunctious mutts of the metro, is coming to the Vita and PS4 sometime next year. It'll have missions and a combo system for strategic play, alongside wacky humor in the area of something like Lichtspeer. Ice Cream Surfer HD, a scrolling shooter about ballistically modified desert treats, is coming to the Vita, PS4 and Switch sometime "soon" according to a tweet from the developer. Not many details are available about this port just yet, but it was previously released on Wii U. Ratalaika continues their Vita support with two new games announced this week; the first is 0000, quadruple 0, four-zero, what have you. It's a super-hard super-retro platformer with a slight twist; if you die you're put into a completely different level to try again. It'll be out next year. The second game from Ratalaika is Metagal, an obviously Megaman inspired jump and shoot platformer with 8 levels, bosses and secret items. Ratalaika says this game will be available within the next two months. Another Japanese visual novel that Gematsu thought would be worth talking about so I will too. D.S. Dal Segno is a visual novel from Circus launching on the 22nd of March. It's about a transfer student moving to an island paradise and meeting girls. That'd be nice. Don't expect a localization for this one. Dates, or rather, games that might be closer than they were previously. Iconoclasts, a game I last talked about all the way back in weekly update #159, has been rated by the European ratings board, implying an upcoming release, although oddly the rating has since been delisted from the website. In the same vein, One More Dungeon recently got a trophy list. Sekai Project have said visual novel Root Double is close to being submitted to Sony for approval, so that may be along shortly as well. And Mercenary Kings, while still having no date announced, recently got a teaser trailer for a Reloaded Edition, which is still listed as coming to Vita, with a Tribute Games developer saying they're still fully committed to the port. And finally this week, a cancellation. Daisenryaku Perfect 4.0 got a Switch version announced this week, and with it's announcement seems to be the complete and utter shuttering of the PlayStation Vita version; all mention of that version has been scrubbed from the publisher and game's website, all replaced by the Switch version. A cancellation hasn't been announced, but damn if it isn't obvious. That's it for this week. That Daisenryaku news stings a bit, I'd much prefer being able to play it on Vita than Switch...for upcoming videos I admit I can't promise much, mainly because we don't know if anything will even be out over the next two weeks. If I have nothing new to show for Vita this week, I have a couple of Better Late than Never that I can put out; I do have stuff to do on Switch including Skyrim and Worms WMD, so at least I won't be completely jobless.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2 now has a confirmed set of dates - the game will release on the 27th of Janurary in North America via retail and digital, while Europe gets it on the 28th digitally and the 30th at retail. Criminal Girls Invite Only is coming to North America on the 3rd of Feburary and Europe on the 6th of Feburary. The game will also have a special edition with a soundtrack, artbook and special box. Infamous bird dating simulator Hatoful Boyfriend is coming to Vita and PS4 sometime in the second quarter 2015. And I'm not going to go into more detail because I don't want to burst out laughing at the concept of a bird dating simulator. The December PS+ lineup for North America and Europe has revealed tower defense game Final Horizon will release on the 2nd of December and 3rd of December depending on region for free to PS+ subscribers. Flyhunter Origins is coming to the Vita on the 9th of December in North America and the 10th of December in Europe for the previously confirmed prices of 5 pounds, 7 euros or 7 dollars. Kantai Collection Kai, the Vita port of the web game that was originally announced so far back ago it was in one of the very first weekly updates, is finally coming in spring 2015 to Japan. And finally this week, Poncho, a 2D platformer with mechanics revolving around the Z-axis and procedurally generated monster ecosystems, has been revealed as coming to Vita sometime in 2015. That's it for this week. Channel update in 3, 2, 1...not really much to talk about this week to tell you the truth, you'll be getting a few more PS Mobile videos until the beginning of next week and then it's pretty up in the air, but ya know we'll just roll with the punches. Like, subscribe, comment and share the video around if you liked it. See you next week.

The big story this week leads onto a couple of others, so I'll lead with it. Physical Vita games will no longer be produced in Western regions in March 2019, with 'product code requests', also known as 'games you wish to manufacture', required to be in by the end of June, and final orders on the 15th of Feburary. Japanese game production will continue into the future, which means Asian English releases and Play-Asia limited runs will continue to be made. Tikipod Games, creators of some Vita titles including Aqua Kitty, have said following the physical production news that they have one last Vita game in the works for the platform. They didn't give any details, but did say they hope to show something off next month. Some developers were also out in force confirming their upcoming physical Vita versions, so I'll repeat them here, thanks to PSP2Roundup - Shakedown Hawaii, SkullPirates, Bloodstained Ritual of the Night and Sharin no Kuni have all confirmed to be proceeding as planned, and Limited Run Games' Twitter has said they have over thirty physical Vita releases in the pipeline. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon was announced this week. It's an action platformer akin to old-school Castlevania, with switchable characters and plenty of levels to explore. This is the 8-bit game that was a stretch goal on the Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Kickstarter campaign. It'll be out on the 24th of this month for a cost of $10, but if you pledged above a certain level on the Kickstarter, you'll be getting a code for this in your inbox soon. Kid Tripp, an iOS runner/platformer also released on the 3DS and Switch, will be making its way to the Vita and PS4 sometime this year. The game contains an 'old-school' soundtrack and art style, and 20 levels to go through. Speaking of Limited Run Games, they have announced that May 25th will contain two releases from them; a regular version of Kemco RPG Antiquia Lost, and two versions of Cosmic Star Heroine, the limited edition for Vita containing a 76 page manual, longbox jewel case, poster, art prints, soundtrack and reversible cover art. That edition will cost $65USD, the two regular versions have not been priced, but one assumes they'll be around $30USD. Play-Asia have put a physical version of Reverie up for sale - the Special Edition comes with a manual, soundtrack, numbered certificate, map, and collectors box for $35 USD. It might be sold out by the time you see this, and I apologize if so. Some big dates for you this week! First up is Stardew Valley, confirmed for release on the 22nd of May, and it is cross-buy with the PS4 version as a reminder, but not cross save. Defender's Quest DX has been spotted by Gematsu as releasing next week, and the developer has said on Twitter that's what'll happen barring any last minute issues. And Bullet Girls Phantasia has gotten a date of August 9th, however the Asian English release hasn't been dated again just yet. Lastly this week, a correction; I did say last week that NightCry was not confirmed for Western release, but Playism did indeed announce just before my weekly update was due to go up that they will be bringing the Vita version west at some point, I just missed adding it last week. Sorry about that. That's it for this week. So the upcoming week went from 'pretty quiet' to 'all hands on deck' really quickly. I do have a video coming on Monday for you, a Better Late Than Never, but after that it's gonna be an interesting toss-up of 'who gets me code first'. Eh, no matter, it'll all turn out fine.

Just as a warning, it's all Japanese news this week. All of it. No, I'm not joking. Gendai Daisenryaku 2018, the next in the long running series of Daisenryaku grand strategy games, was confirmed for Vita and PS4 this week. Outside of some new scnearios and units, it isn't exactly clear what differs from this version and the previously released 2016 version on PS3 and Vita. It'll release sometime next year. Natsuiro Kokoro Log, a visual novel from Dramatic Create, will launch on Vita next spring in Japan. It's about a decidedly creepy scenario in which the protagonist is made the protagonist of a love sim game in the game, with his classmates being the romanceable girls. Yes, it's meta. Kadokawa Games have promised, along with the "Labyrinth of Yomi" DLC for God Wars, an extra update to the main story. What's going to be in this hasn't been revealed yet, let alone a release date. Dates! Metal Max Xeno has been dated for the 19th of April in Japan, with extra Limited and Premium editions adding soundtracks, artbooks and extra DLC weapons. Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night have been dated for May 24th, with a special Double Pack available for Vita with both games, a DLC costume set and full soundtrack. And 5pb's Is It Wrong To Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon Infinite Combate has been delayed to summer of next year. That's it for this week. Told you, it was all Japanese. Bit weird all this news came out over Christmas week, but whatever, it's Japan. I'm back on the horse now, after spending most of my week off being completely unproductive. I can't guarantee what videos are coming out, but I do know I'm kicking off a digital An Idiot Imports saga on the dawn of the new year, and I do plan on doing a 2017 recap video at some point this week, so if you enjoy my directionless rants, HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU? Thanks to my Patrons, the other Richard, Bonfire Cow, Brian, Joey, Adam, Raymond, Eric, Mithaldu, Matthew, Miguel, Felimban, Alan, Yury, Kyle, Billy, Gary, David and Bliz. Outro.

PS Vita Weekly Update #331 - 16/11/2018 (The Last Update)
 
03:03
It's time. 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. The big story this week is not a good one; Atlus has confirmed the cancellation of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim for Vita, only leaving the PS4 version to release at an undetermined time. PQube has confirmed that they are no longer releasing Vita titles, saying that the digital-only marketplace for Vita is not viable for business anymore. That combined with the loss of money on Omega Labyrinth Z's localization cancellation probably didn't go well for their wallets, let's be honest. Two pieces of physical release news. Strictly Limited Games' version of Sayonara Umihara Kawase Plus will release on the 18th of November. And Race the Sun is getting a Limited Run Games release on the 23rd of November. Darkest Dungeon got two pieces of DLC this week - The Color of Madness expansion, with new area, bosses and enemies, and more, came out for $5, and a character class, The Musketeer, is available for free. A patch released alongside the game. One more piece of patch news this week - Revenge of the Bird King got a patch to fix the inventory being emptied at random. A couple of dates to round out the week - Mecho Wars: Desert Ashes releases on the 20th of November. Battle Princess Madelyn will release on Vita sometime in 2019. And Slayaway Camp was dated for the 15th in The Drop this week, but it does not seem to have released as of this writing. That's it for this week. Well, I guess it's time. I said it was going to happen some time this year, and with the news of PQube's departure and 13 Sentinel's cancellation, I think it's time to call the Vita Weekly Update to an end. Three hundred and thirty one updates is a lot of weeks, it's amazing it made it this far, but I'd rather stop before the news becomes complete dripfeed. For those people who are wondering what might be happening now; I have an idea for a new weekly series that I want to start next week. We'll see how well that works. For now, I guess I'll be thanking the Patrons. And don't worry, Patrons - I'm going to start including you guys in each video instead, starting this week, including this new series if it works. Thanks to my Patrons, Alan, Billy, Bliz, Brett, Caleb, Chen, Christoph, David, Eddier, Eric, Gary, Joey, the other Joey, JR, Twee-otch, Matthew, Miguel, Mithaldu, Raymond, Rodrigo, sackchief and Z.

02:39
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. Experience Inc have announced NG, a horror title along the same lines as their previously released title Death Mark, for Vita and PS4. It'll be out on the 9th of August in Japan. It'll be a fight against demons and ghosts in a more modern setting compared to Death Mark. No Western announcement has been made yet. Riddled Corpses EX has officially been announced by COWCAT Studios and Diabolical Mind, the developer of Xenon Valkyrie+. The new version will be 60fps on Vita, with many gameplay tweaks and improvements. The game will be out sometime in the second quarter of this year, so soon-ish. Grisaia Phantom Trigger Volume 3 and 4 are coming to the Vita in Japan on the 2nd of August, continuing the story of the previously released Volume 1 and 2. There probably won't be an English version of these. New Little King's Story was taken off the PlayStation Store on the 16th of April, with Konami only announcing that they had done so on the 20th. It probably won't be back. The online servers for the game will be shut off on the 20th of May. Dates, or rather, date. Zanki Zero launches in Japan on the 5th of July; no Western release for the Vita version will be happening unfortunately. And finally this week, if you have a North American region PSN, you can go and get a code for the Vita versions of Dustforce and Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz on the latest Capcom x Sega Humble Bundle on the $1 tier. The promotion goes for about ten days after this update. That's it for this week. I know, I know, my top 100 hasn't happened yet, and I'm sorry to tell you it probably won't happen for a little while longer as I've been swamped with stuff to do and not much time to do it. Videos this week will include Pic-a-Pix Deluxe and Devious Dungeon; my copies of Super Robot Wars X and Power Pro haven't come in yet but when they do I'll choose between the first one to do...although it'll probably be Super Robot Wars, honestly.

(Also, Samurai Shodown V is out 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. NIS America are localizing The Lost Child, dungeon crawler monster collecting title from the same director as El Shaddai, with over fifty creatures with three forms each and 250 skills to share around between them. The game will be released sometime in 2018 on Vita and PS4, with the Vita version being digital only. Steamworld Dig 2 wasn't confirmed to be coming to the Vita when it was first announced, but this week it WAS confirmed, and it has a solid date of September 26th in North America and September 27th in Europe. It involves one of the town members of the original game searching for the original protagonist, while also shifting to a slightly more metroidvania platforming mix. It'll be $20 USD and cross-buy. Mecho Tales, platformer shooter from Arcade Distillery, the creators of Plague Road, is coming to Vita on the 19th of September, with a PS4 and Switch release to follow. The game will be digital only except for a Limited Run Games batch. Reverie, previously announced a few months ago as a general idea that might be made into a game, is coming along as a full title from publisher EastAsiaSoft. The game is a traditional adventure title with six dungeons, lots of items and the unique location of New Zealand. The game will be out in early 2018 as a digital and physical special edition. Bullet Girls Phantasia, a follow up to the modern Bullet Girls duology, is coming to Vita and PS4 next year in Japan. The game will combine the modern guns and tanks of the original games with the swords and sorcery of fantasy lands. All of the interrogation systems return, along with a new buddy system. It'll be out in spring next year. There's no localization details for any of the Japanese titles I talk about this week. Steins;Gate Elite, previously announced in Japan but with no platforms, was confirmed for Vita and PS4 this week, coming sometime in spring next year. There isn't much information about the game yet, but if they treat the game the same way as Robotics;Notes Elite, this will be an enhanced version of the original title. Also previously announced but no confirmed platforms until now was an action RPG based on light novel and anime series Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon, subtitled Infinite Combate. It was announced for Vita and PS4 this week, coming sometime in spring next year in Japan. SystemSoft Alpha have announced Daisenryaku Perfect 4.0 for release on Vita, PS4 and PC. While not much is known about the title, the 4.0 is relevant due to the last Perfect game with a number in the title, 3.0, was released in 2008. The PS4 version will release first on the 7th of December; the Vita version has a less specific Janurary 2018 date. Developer Prototype is bringing two of their visual novels to the Vita in Japan in Winter. Katahane, a story about a playwright looking for actors for his piece and with robotic dolls that resemble humans, and Grisaia Phantom Trigger Vol 1 & 2, a compilation of the first two parts of the spinoff sequel to the Grisaia trilogy, which I can't possibly cover in this tiny paragraph. Otomate have announced they're working on an absolute ton of Vita otome titles, and considering they have a higher chance than many to make it over here, I'm going to summarise them all really quick. * Cendrillion phalikA * Charade Maniacs * Shinku no Homura: Sanada no Ninpouchou * Tengai Ni Mau, Ikinahana * Variable Barricade * And finally, Collar x Malice Unlimited, a Collar x Malice fandisk. While it wasn't 100% confirmed for Vita, it was only released for Vita in Japan, so I'd be amazed if it was skipped. Dates! Antiqiua Lost launched on Vita in North America this week. Factotum 90, however, did NOT launch, but the developers say they have review code, so the launch is probably coming sooner rather than later. Bodycheck will launch in North America on the 12th of September. Bad Apple Wars launches in North America on the 13th of October, with a Day One Edition exclusive to GameStop. Chaos;Child has been dated for October 24th in North America by Amazon...which is odd, because that's a Sunday, so I'm not sure I trust that one. A New Zealand game shop listed the European release for October 13th, which is a Wednesday. And finally this week, Limited Run Games are teasing a Japanese-only Vita release for a Limited Run. As for what game it is, or when it'll be available, or if it's a game we don't have yet or just a physical release of a game we do have, is unknown. Thanks guys, you make my job REALLY EASY. 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. Publisher Poppy Works has come out with an unusual announcement this week - they've successfully ported visual novel creation software Ren'Py to Vita and all the other consoles, so if anyone wants to go and get their Ren'Py game on Vita, now's your chance. KonoSuba is getting a dungeon RPG on Vita and PS4 from Japanese publisher Entergram. Not many details have been revealed about the game, including subtitle, release date, or quantity of useless goddesses. And a Western release is probably not forthcoming. Ghoulboy, a retro hardcore-inspired platformer, has been announced for Vita by Dolores Entertainment, the publishers of Ice Cream Surfer. They have promised both physical and digital versions, but haven't given a date just yet. There is a game I haven't talked about apparently coming to Vita called Alt Bosnia, which is apparently going to be a tactical strategy game. Not much info is available for the game outside of a couple of purposefully blurry screenshots. There's a lot of physical news this week. We'll start with the one that's already out - the Limited Run Games version of Rabi Ribi, which should have been available from the 9th at 10am. Demetrios: The Big Cynical Adventure is up for preorder on Red Art Games. There's 999 copies at 25 euro apiece. The Bard's Tale physical version from Red Art Games has been delayed to the 21st of December due to them wanting to include last week's trophy patch. And NIS America have announced they'll be doing physical print runs of The Lost Child, Penny-Punching Princess and The Last 5 Minutes in North America, and they'll be releasing on the 19th of March next year for $30 USD. The online shutdown date for Sound Shapes and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has been pushed back; they'll now go away on the 31st of Janurary next year. They haven't given a good reason for the pushback yet, but if anyone wants to try backing up all of the Sound Shapes levels, now's your chance. And finally this week, although it's technically from last week - Bullet Girls Phantasia got a patch. I'm not sure what it does and I'm not sure where my copy is to check, but it got a patch, dangit. That's it for this week. It's been a long week in Flashpoint terms so I'm kinda wrung out on what to bring to the channel, but I do have a couple of PC videos that will be going up this week in the form of GRIP and Shadow of War. I'll see if I can get something Vita related done but the release schedule has been pretty dry recently. Might have to dig into the backlog a little. Oh well.

Another short one for you this week. Halloween Forever, a two dimensional retro platformer developed by Imaginary Monsters and published by Poppy Works, is coming to Vita on the 19th of October, so basically when you see this you should be able to get it. It's about a pumpkin man who vomits candy corn platforming through three worlds to discover why he's a pumpkin man. Word Sudoku by POWGI, which appears to be another set of brain exercises, will be releasing next week on the 23rd, and Revenge of the Bird King, for which there is literally no information online, to the point where Googling the game name only brings up only the trophy lists that leaked it's existence. And Defender's Quest DX's physical edition is going on sale on the 19th of October at Limited Run Games, which means by the time you see this it'll be gone. And that's it, more or less. As for what's coming up this week, I have no idea yet, but I've got more than enough videos to bridge the gap if I can't get anything particularly fresh made.
