What is there to say about Minecraft that you don't already know? Perhaps that it is coming to the PS Vita very soon! And also that it is not the gimped pocket edition, but a version more similar to the PS3 edition that is already released. In fact, if you have the PS3 version you will be able to download it for free on the Vita, aka Cross-Buy. Your DLC will be available as well! There are XBox One and PS4 versions being released soon as well, but these are upgraded editions with longer draw distance, bigger worlds etc. Read more about it all here in the official announcement. There are also Vita gameplay videos available here.

Freedom Wars is a PS Vita exclusive title that has been released in Japan and Asia earlier this year. It will reach the west later in 2014. Freedom Wars takes place in a very distant future where Earths surface is uninhabitable, forcing humans to live underground in cities known as Panopticons, where the government has total control of every human. You play as a criminal forced by the state to fight giant monsters. Gameplay wise, you use firearms or handheld weapons to fight in Monster Hunter style missions. The game is supposed to get multiplayer support later where you can team up with or fight against other people. Freedom Wars has sold a lot of copies in Japan but there is some critisism of it being way too hard, so there might be a patch later on with lowered difficulty level. Here is some gameplay for you to check out.

Game: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair
Developer: Spike Chunsoft
Publisher: NIS America
Release: September 2nd, 2014 (NA) - September 5th, 2014 (EU)
Genre: Visual Novel, Mystery

 

 

As your fellow classmates start dropping like coconuts, you'll need to delve into each murderous incident, forage for clues, and interview your classmates to reveal the opportunity, motive, and means behind each killer case!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is the sequel to the popular Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. The game was originally released on PSP a few years ago in Japan. Gameplay and story is very similar to the first game. You arrive at an academy together with a group of students, not knowing that Monokuma has other plans for you. The deal is that if you kill another student and get away with it, you get to leave the academy. If you fail, you are executed. Gameplay is divided into three parts. First you socialize with students and drive the plot forward, then when a dead student is found you examine the crime scene for clues. These clues are then used in the third part, the class trial. There is a trailer available here, and if you are good at japanese you can visit the official website. There is also a third Danganronpa game in development for the Vita, but the release date is unknown.
