Take a true AAA gaming experience on the go with a wide selection of PS Vita games
The PS Vita is a powerful handheld console with a vast library of amazing games that you can play just about anywhere. From big AAA PlayStation franchises to indie hits, Japanese titles, the biggest ports and more, there’s sure to be something for every type of gamer in the PS Vita stable of games.
The biggest games from top franchises on PS Vita
The PS Vita library has a number of titles from some of the biggest franchises, and these entries to some of the most loved series’ in gaming can only be played on the Vita. A few of these huge exclusives include PlayStation-only properties such as Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Killzone: Mercenaries, Resistance: Burning Skies, and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.
The PS Vita also features entries exclusive at launch from franchises that are typically multi-platform. These include Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation and Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified, the latter of which is still not playable anywhere but on the PS Vita console.
Independent games on PS Vita
The PS Vita games library is also home to some of the best indie hits of recent years. Many titles even include cross-save progression, meaning that you can pick up your save between the PS Vita and other PlayStation platforms such as the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Simply log into the cloud and download your most recent save to continue right where you left off on a previous platform.
Games like Shovel Knight, Rogue Legacy, Guacamelee, Don’t Starve, and Darkest Dungeon are just a handful of examples from the enormous library of critically acclaimed and fan-favourite indie titles playable on the PS Vita.
Japanese games for the PS Vita
The PS Vita console was developed in Japan, where handheld gaming is enormously popular. Since Japanese audiences crave handheld experiences so ferociously, there are a number of Eastern publishers focused on putting out these types of games. Thus, with the introduction of the PS Vita to North America, Western audiences have access to a treasure trove of Japanese games that otherwise may never have come overseas.
In particular, the PS Vita is an absolute haven for fans of Japanese Role-Playing Games, or “JRPGs”. Some popular JRPGs to come out in North America for the PS Vita include The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, Tales of Hearts R, Ys: Memories of Celceta, and Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited.
Re-releases and ports on the PS Vita
The incredible library of PS Vita games is not only limited to titles originally releasing on the console. There are a vast number of games that were previously released on other platforms which have made their way into the PS Vita games catalogue.
This includes some pretty huge titles, such as Borderlands 2, which was originally released for the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 generation of consoles but is now fully playable on PS Vita. One of the most critically acclaimed titles on PS Vita—Persona 4: Golden is also a port of the original PlayStation 2 game. In the case of Persona 4: Golden, the Vita version has additional content above the original release and is widely considered the best way to play the game.
Other big franchises with multiple games ported to the PS Vita include Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, God of War, and Ratchet and Clank.
PS Vita vs. PlayStation Portable games
Since the PS Vita console is the successor to Sony’s previous handheld, the PlayStation Portable, it should be noted that each device has its own separate library of games. Cartridge games for the PS Vita will not play on a PlayStation Portable console, and likewise games for the PlayStation Portable are not compatible with PS Vita.
