The PlayStation Vita has been getting a ton of third-party support lately, which is impressive considering the handheld released over five years ago. The Vita is getting a slew of upcoming handheld exclusive titles (games released alongside the PS4 versions). Here is a list of the most notable upcoming PS Vita handheld exclusives launching in the coming years.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory is an upcoming JRPG developed by Media.Vision and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for the PS4 and PS Vita. It’s the sequel to 2015’s Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, which was sort of the Vita owner’s answer to Pokemon. The title will be released on December 21, 2017 in Japan, and worldwide in 2018. The game shares elements and locations from its predecessor, while featuring a new story and an expanded amount of Digimon creatures the player can collect. Like Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Hacker’s Memory game does feature English voice-over.

We here at Enthusiast Gaming were fans of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, we said:
…it’s a really solid game, and well worth checking out even if you haven’t played a Digimon game before and don’t remember the show all that well. If you like Pokemon you’ll probably like this game, especially if you find the former has grown stale over the years. If you wish for a monster collecting RPG on PlayStation systems that treads on the nostalgia for old Japanese IPs, then look no further.
Hacker’s Memory takes place in the same world as the original Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth: a near-future version of Shibuya, Japan where an advanced form of the internet known as Cyberspace Eden allows users to physically enter. You play as Keisuke Amazawa who gets his Eden Account stolen in a phishing invasion. After the identity theft leaves him accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he joins a group of hackers called “Hudie” and delves into the depths of Eden to find the real culprit. In his journey, you’ll befriend Digimon and use them to battle with. Characters from the original Cyber Sleuth such as Fei and her partner TigerVespamon from the hacker group Zaxon also appear, showing a previously unseen side of their story from the previous title.
