TGS – Japanese Vita Games

Tokyo Games Show is just around the corner. With that on the horizon, there have been Japanese PS Vita games being announced all over the shop, as the smaller publishers try and bolster awareness of their games before the big guns roll in at Tokyo Games Show itself.

For what it’s worth, Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu is promising a ‘big’ game to be announced at the show. We don’t know what it is but the rumours right now are pointing at it either being Monster Hunter or Metal Gear, with a new God Eater title also in the frame.

Still, here are the titles that have been announced… be warned, for the most part, they are INCREDIBLY niche

Sumi Oni

A single-player 2D title where you control Sumi Oni and use your brush to draw. Yes, someone’s been playing Okami. Sumi Oni will use the rear and front touchscreen but also supports analogue pad. We heard the concept, got excited, had our excitement trampled by the trailer which… doesn’t make it seem nearly as cool. Still, we’ve got to wait and see what emerges from Tokyo Games Show.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend

This was probably known about before but regardless, here it is again. The focus is on a new character called Relius and we would describe his fighting style but we have no idea what’s going on or what it is he’s supposed to be doing. So have a video! That should help.

Here are some screens as well:

Malicious

Available on Japanese PSN, this trailer is of the PlayStation3 title but at least gives you an idea of what to expect. The Vita version will have new elements but it hasn’t been confirmed yet what these are.

Ragnarok Odyssey

Dream Club ZERO

Ousama

Asphalt Injection

The Asphalt series has been doing the business on iPad for a while now and has established itself as one of the top racing names on that format. It’ll be interesting to see if we get a straightforward port or something with plenty of bells and whistles packed in – we’re expecting the former, hoping for the latter.

Mahjong

It’s a mahjong game. These seem to mark every console launch in Japan and are never seen ever again, as if they know that the scarcity of games is their only chance to sell more than 10 copies.

Shin Kamaitachi no Yoru: Jyuicihi-nin-me no Suspect

It’s the catchiest title on the list and it’s also a choose your own adventure book turned videogame, essentially. The series has been going since the SNES in 1994 and this game is based on a murder mystery. You have to read text and choose the correct path through the game. It’s also coming to PS3 and has a 100 player multiplayer mode (!). And it will never, ever come to Europe but you probably already know that.
