Now that the PlayStation Vita has been released into the wild of its oriental homeland, we can start the busy process of talking about plans for the US and European launches that will no doubt cure our new year blues.
Sony seems to have the same idea, because they have recently made public the launch game line-up for the machine when it hits our shores on February 22nd.
Without further ado, here are the titles you will spending tons of time with on launch day, with PSN releases underneath:
• Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
• Little Deviants
• ModNation Racers: Road Trip
• Uncharted: Golden Abyss
• WipEout 2048
• Army Corps of Hell
• Asphalt Injection
• Ben 10: Galactic Racing
• BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II Extend
• Dungeon Hunter Alliance
• Dynasty Warriors Next
• F1 2011
• FIFA Soccer
• Lumines Electronic Symphony
• Michael Jackson: The Experience
• Rayman Origins
• Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen
• Touch My Katamari
• Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3
• Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition
• Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack
• Escape Plan
• Hustle Kings
• Super Stardust Delta
• Plants vs. Zombies
As well as teasing us with dreams of gaming yet to come, the ghost of Christmas Future (well OK then, SCE) has also shared more of its plans for AR gaming. In a similar move to the 3DS packages, each Vita will come bundled with several AR marker cards.
Unlike the 3DS however, AR software won’t be included on your machine, instead you will also be given a free (got to love that word!) voucher to trade in for three AR games from the PSN store: Table Football, Cliff Diving and Fireworks. More of these freebies can be seen in the very interesting trailer below.
