Sony announces new PS Vita games for Japan

Confirms Mega Man creator's new Vita project.

Sony has announced a raft of new PS Vita games for launch in Japan.

Among them are Phantasy Star Online 2 and Persona 4 The Golden.

Phantasy Star Online 2 was previously a PC exclusive. According to Andriasang, series producer Sakai Satoshi said the PC and Vita versions will be played on the same server, and you'll be able to play the same character on both versions.

Also spotted in a new video: Super Robot Wars (Namco Bandai), Heroes Zero no Kiseki Evolution, Gundam Seed Battle Destiny (Namco Bandai), and a new game from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune.

In a video message (translated by Andriasang), Inafune described the mysterious Vita title as an "Inafune-like" game. It's also "amazing", but then he would say that.

Andriasang suggests Inafune's next will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment.

Sony also announced Discovery Project, a collaboration with Japanese company Kadokawa Games. According to Andriasang, it is unclear what the project is, but it will involve Vita owners working together in some way.

Heroes Zero no Kiseki Evolution, from Japanese companies Falcom and Pyramid, is an updated Vita port of a game originally planned for PSP, Andriasang said. The developers decided to make the switch to Vita because of concerns over the limits of UMD space.

All of these games are Japan-only - for now.

Meanwhile, Sony has announced a 28th June release date for the Vita version of Metal Gear Solid HD in Japan.
