Army Corps of Hell PS VitaYes, it’s another story about things we learned at Sony’s pre-TGS 2011 conference! Seriously, you had to see this coming. I mean, it was a major event. Anyways, Sony’s hoping to avoid the problem Nintendo had with the 3DS by making sure the PS Vita has plenty of games available when the system launches on December 17, 2011 in Japan. So, it’s working with third party developers to ensure there are 26 games available when people pick up their systems. Yes, that’s a wonderfully robust launch lineup.

Here’s the full list of games that will be on stores the second the Vita is. If a game is only going to be available through the PlayStation Store, there’ll be a little (PSN) behind it.

  1. @field
  2. Army Corps of Hell
  3. BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend
  4. Dark Quest
  5. Disgaea 3 Return
  6. Dream Club Zero Portable
  7. Dynasty Warriors Next
  8. F1 2011
  9. Fish On
  10. Hot Shots Golf 6
  11. Katamari no Biita
  12. Little Deviants (PSN)
  13. Lord of the Apocolypse
  14. Michael Jackson: The Experience HD
  15. Minna to Issho: Friend Network (PSN)
  16. Monster Radar
  17. NicoNico Douga (PSN)
  18. Power Smash 4
  19. Project N.O.E.L.S. (PSN)
  20. Ridge Racer
  21. Sangokushi Touch Battle (PSN)
  22. Shin Kamaitacho no Yoru
  23. Shinobido II: Tales of the Ninja
  24. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  25. Uncharted: Golden Abyss
  26. Yuusha no Kiroku (PSN)

Now, I wouldn’t get too excited about that big list. Just because Japan’s getting 26 games when the system launches doesn’t mean North America and Europe will too. I’m guessing we definitely won’t see NicoNico Douga, Shin Kamaitacho no Yoru, Minna to Issho: Friend Network and Dream Club Zero Portable.

Sony also claims that around 100 Vita games are currently in development for the system, among them Street Fighter x Tekken, Tales of Innocence R, Zone of Enders HD and Final Fantasy X HD. So there should be a lot of games for Vita adopters to look forward to playing.
