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 release alongside the PS4 versions). Here is a list of the most notable upcoming PS Vita handheld exclusives launching in the coming years.
Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA
Here’s another huge gap in my gaming knowledge, but I know this Japanese role-playing series is beloved by gamers everywhere. Because I’m still a stranger to the franchise, I’ll leave some information on the game below straight from NIS America’s website.
“Ys returns with a brand new adventure for the first time in 8 years! Adol awakens shipwrecked and stranded on a cursed island. There, he and the other shipwrecked passengers he rescues form a village to challenge fearsome beasts and mysterious ruins on the isolated island. Amidst this, Adol begins to dream of a mysterious blue-haired maiden living in an unknown world. Join Adol as he unravels the riddle of the cursed isle and the blue-haired maiden Dana in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA!
- An Epic Tale – Follow Adol on his latest adventure and uncover the mysteries of the cursed island.
- Party On! – Change your playable character on-the-fly as you battle ferocious foes in lighting-fast combat.
- Another Side – Unravel the mystery of the blue-haired maiden Dana through her unique gameplay sections.
- It Takes a Village! – Rescue your fellow shipwrecked passengers and bring them to your village where they will provide valuable services.”
Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA launches for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita next week on September 12th.
