JP exploited game for TN-V4 (Katekyo Hitman reborn Battle Arena 2) removed from the JP store. Other locales to follow?

Two days ago we announced the names of 2 games that will be used in Total_Noob’s upcoming TN-V4 CFW release for the PS Vita. One of the exploited games was specific to the JP store: Katekyo Hitman Reborn! Battle Arena2.

According to early reports, Sony Japan have now removed the game from the PSN store, a now traditional move on their end every time a hack in a PSP game is announced. According to user apolo1192 on twitter, the game has also been removed from people’s download list.

This emphasizes the need for people to make sure they actually download and install the exploited games on their Vita before Sony pulls them from the store. The Game used for TN-V4 in Europe and the US, 101-in-1 megamix, is still available at the time of this writing, but no doubt that Sony will quickly take action, as soon as the weekend in over in the impacted regions (anytime now in Europe, and in a few hours in the US).

In the meantime, The Z reported that 101-in-1 megamix has topped the sales charts for the PSP in the HK store, and has reached the top 30 overnight in Germany:

Once the game is downloaded and installed on your console, please stay tuned, as we’re all waiting for TN’s release!

      I forgot how the CMA worked between Vita and PS3, but even if you miss it, don’t worry, as long as the game is still there and you have your Vita on 3.01 or below, you WILL be able to transfer it once Katekyo Hitman is put back on PSN, it will just means you will have to wait a bit longer.

      If it’s been flagged by PSN, then no. If you still can, move it to a USB drive via Content Manager and keep it on your PC for later. Then use OpenCMA to move it over.

    Hope I can get an answer as I’m really worried about this inquiry.

    I got the Japanese version of the game downloaded on my Vita but at this time I have no memory card so its on the 1GB of memory the Vita has. When I get my memory card will I still be able to use the exploit and the memory card storage?.

    Thanks a bunch in advance!.

      Copy the game from your vita using open CMA5 to your pc when you get your memory card copy it back over using Open CMA job done.

    It’s been taken down finally from North American stores. Now we’re just waiting on the release since this was the last store to still have the game
