Sony has named 74 work in progress PlayStation Vita games.

Add these to the 26 PlayStation Vita Japan launch titles and you have the 100 games Sony touted for release by March 2012. The official document doesn't mention when these 74 games will be released.

Also, to call all of them games is a bit strong. Some teach languages, others are slot machine simulations, and so on. Most will likely never head West.

Furthermore, a significant amount of them don't yet have names. They're referred to simply as "genre" by "company".

Notably, there's no new Monster Hunter game. The only Vita Monster Hunter game confirmed so far is an enhanced port of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. And even that title is absent from both the launch line-up and "work in progress" list.

Monster Hunter's absence is even more glaring when put next to Nintendo's announcement of Monster Hunter 4 on 3DS.
