Yesterday in Japan, Sony held the PS Vita livestream Vita Heaven, which promised some announcements for the system and it did not disappoint.
Here is a quick round-up of what was announced:
- PS Vita Price Cut in Japan: Both Vita models will reduce to the price of 19,980 yen from February 28, however there are no plans for a price cut in North America or Europe yet.
- Phantasy Star Online 2 Vita Bundle: PSO2 will release with the Vita in a bundle package for 19,980 yen on March 28.
- Toukiden Announced: A new portable action game from Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force, it will support four players and there will be a demo in April.
- Soul Sacrifice Bundle, Dated: Soul Sacrifice will be coming to the PS Vita on March 7, there will also be a PS Vita bundle with the console costing 24980 yen.
- Additionally Final Fantasy X HD was shown as well as footage of God Eater 2, Gundam Breaker and Valhalla Knights 3, the latter two were given a vague 2013 as a release date.
Here is what you can expect Final Fantasy 10 to look like on the Vita:
Overall it seemed like a solid event, it is obviously very Japanese focused but there is a lot to get excited for there. Unfortunately it could have been improved by cutting the Vita price in NA and Europe, but I’m sure that’ll happen soon enough anyway.
