Full of Vita: A Look at the Handheld’s Hottest Upcoming Games

May 15, 2012 Written by Sebastian Moss

With the Vita out for well over a month now, you’ve probably turned off the menu music, changed the background pic and played all the games you could until it crashed. What next? Read on to take a look at all the hottest and biggest upcoming Vita games to find out just what’s in store.

Below we have all the biggest games, while on page 2 we have the new IPs as well as download-only games and on page 3 we have the smaller sequels and rumored titles.

The Big Names – Well Established Franchises That Are Sure to be a Hit:

Call of Duty:

The biggest franchise of the generation hasn’t managed to replicate its success on mobiles or handhelds, but that’s because touch screens and one-joysticked devices suck for first person shooters. Nothing is known about the game, and whether it’s a fully fledged title, a port or a cheap knockoff.

Release date TBA.

Assassin’s Creed:

Again, nothing is known about this game, or when and where it’ll be set, but face stabbing on the Vita is sure to be fun.

Release date TBA.

LittleBigPlanet Vita:

Play.Create.Share has never looked so good. While using a DualShock was always a rather cumbersome way to create levels, the touch screen is actually a rather simple and easy way to practice being a developer. With the beta in registration now, hopefully we’ll soon get a closer look at the title.

Resistance: Burning Skies:

The Resistance series might be dying, but it could be set to go out with a bang. Set to be the first FPS on the Vita, it’ll also have the honor of being the first FPS of note on a handheld. Players control firefighter Tom Riley, who battles against the Chimera during their invasion of the United States in 1951.

Madden:

Madden always does well so it’s sure to sell well, although sadly Madden NFL 13 on Vita won’t feature cross saves, which is a seriously missing feature.

Out on August 28th.

Street Fighter X Tekken:

Already available on the PS3 and 360, the PSV version of this franchise-tacular fighting game will include a few extra characters.

BioShock:

With BioShock Vita taking a backseat to the development of BioShock Infinite (which was just delayed), don’t expect to see anything on this for quite a while.

Release date TBA.

Killzone:

Developed by Sony Cambridge (of MediEvil fame), the handheld Killzone game will be an FPS rather than a top down shooter like Liberation. It is also the first Killzone game to not be made by the core team at Guerrilla Games.

Release date TBA.
