While the PlayStation Vita has certainly struggled to find its place in the market, there are some stellar titles available for it. In addition to the games that have already been released, there is a fantastic line-up of titles coming in the near future. This guide will cover a selection of games that have already released for the console, as well as those that have been announced to be localized for North America.

Current Titles

Dragon Fantasy Book I

Take an old-school JRPG, throw in a ton of humor and pop culture references, and you get one of the best indie titles on the system. This is a must-play for any fan of classic Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy games.

Muramasa Rebirth

A remake of the Wii classic with upgraded graphics and an all-new translation courtesy of Aksys Games. With stunning graphics and some of the best action gaming I have seen in years, this one should not be missed.

Soul Sacrifice (http://www NULL.jp NULL.playstation NULL.com/scej/title/soulsacrifice/en/)

Soul Sacrifice

From Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune, this action RPG is one of the most brutal titles I have played in years. Its difficulty doesn’t mean that it is not fun by any means. For those looking for a decent story and challenging gameplay, this might be right up your alley.

Hotline Miami (http://hotlinemiami NULL.com/)

Hotline Miami | Bull mask mode

Though I have personally not played this title, one of our co-owners, Richard Ross, really enjoys it. With its unique style and over-the-top gameplay, I will likely be purchasing this top-down GTA-style game myself in the near future.

Persona 4 Golden

Take one the best PS2 JRPGs ever made, upgrade the graphics and sound, and add tons of extra content. What you get is one of the best games on the console. This is a must for any Vita owner. What more can be said about it?

Ragnarok Odyssey

Ragnarok Odyssey

You ever play Monster Hunter and think to yourself, “This game would be better if the action were a bit faster”? If so, then this game is exactly what your are looking for. It may look like it plays the same, but with much faster combat and a simpler item system, it plays totally different.

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention (http://disgaea NULL.us/dis3vita/)

I know you’re thinking this is just a port of the PS3 game. It is exactly that, but when you add in all the DLC and take into consideration that this is one of the greatest portable strategy titles out there, it makes it a must-buy. With over 300 hours of content, this will keep any fan in bliss for many hours.

Retro City Rampage

Retro City Rampage

A classic GTA-style game with enough 80s pop culture references to make any retro nut smile with glee. This open-world adventure features some of the best action gameplay on the console.

Dokuro

Dokuro

This game is a zany puzzle/platform game that offers hours of entertainment. You play as a nameless skeleton who is off to save the princess. Each level offers a new variety of challenges that take full advantage of the Vita’s touchscreen. This game is sure to put your brain to the test.
