    They need to bring more Japanese games to the west.

    • bob says:

      no. they need to make better games in the west period. i like Japanese games as well, but is is sad that most of my best games are jap translated or ported from a console. i don’t like most ( one or two i like) indie games. the apps are too expensive as well.
      games i would like to buy for the vita
      Mass effect, portal, dragon age, a jap game i can not remember the name of, an elder scrolls game (not the mmo one)

      • martyslav says:

        Couldn’t say it better. Except the fact, i hate these japanese s&*t

      • dio says:

        Really? Western support on a handheld? What are you smoking? The closest thing would be to have a small notebook with you if you want western games. If you bought a vita for western support then you are a fool. The western market couldnt care less about portable stuff.

      • Joji says:

        If you want Mass Effect and Portal, there is one for Android. Heck, even Half-Life 2 is on android. There are a lot of really good games in Japan that needs to be ported over. One of them is Robotics Note. I bought the limited edition at Japan’s version of Gamestop called “Trader” (mind you, that place is 10x better than Gamestop, all the used the stuff are in mint condition). Game is full of mind boggling kanji, but it’s still a nice challenge for me.

  2. Boi says:

    I’m really surprised tales of hearts R didn’t make the list, or does the wololo team know about that hidden gem?

    • darke says:

      Everything I’ve read indicates the translation is being butchered, so I can’t say I’m particularly anticipating it.

    • Broose says:

      The list is based on the “amazon most wished list” so … maybe there are enough ppl who wish to buy Tales of Series sadly :/

      • Saffron_City says:

        Tales of Hearts R is a Gamestop exclusive. That would explain why it wasn’t on Amazon’s list.

  3. NNNRT says:

    I have too many games. They add up to more than 80GB. And I still buy new games digitally & physically. 😛
    Btw I can’t wait to play Freedom Wars on my Vita! 🙂

  4. Barry says:

    All this weeaboo ***…

  5. bodega says:

    @frwololo, am i wrong or even sword art online hollow fragment will arrive in Europe next month for psvita?

  6. DudeInHere says:

    Eh not interested in any of those games. Only looking forward to Bullet Girls and still kind of hoping that GE2 comes over. I’m gonna buy the JP Ver eventually anyway.

    • Joji says:

      Oh snap, you’re getting Bullet Girls? I want that game too but I used up all my money on “other Vita games” like SAO: Hollow Fragment, Girls und Panzer, and Robotic Notes.

  7. pploco1996 says:

    It’s cool that they bring all these eastern games but the vita sure needs nice a set of western titles. In my opinion (yes, I’m allowed to have one) they should bring games like GTA, Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Infamous, etc…

    I think the idea of having a vita is to have a handheld ps3.

    • PowerWalks says:

      Yeah, your right. I’d pay $$ for inFamous, GTA, etc..
      Who’re we kidding anymore.. our Vita is just a screen with controls now.

    • dio says:

      Silent Hill and Resident evil are not even western games. There is already a terrible Silent Hill on the ps vita and if you want Resident Evil you have to buy a 3ds.

  8. reaper527 says:

    a list of “the most anticipated vita games in 2014” that doesn’t include phantasy star nova OR fighting climax? i’d say that fact alone renders the list pretty inaccurate.

    on a side note, i was actually really surprised that your “doesn’t care about the western audiences” link wasn’t about sega (even if the link you did use fits the description pretty well too).

    • wololo says:

      The list is US/EU based. These two titles do not have a release date outside of Japan yet, so this is why they didn’t make it to the list.

      And yes, Sega have their share of fan screwup, indeed.

  9. jaym says:

    I dream that one day I can buy Japanese games and then the developer will just include a patch for english version. I don’t care about voice. As long as there is a text translation I am good with that. And yes I am willing to pay them

  10. HoiYszw says:

    I heard wololo lives in Japan, so I dont understand why FW is on the list and it’s the 2nd.
    If you really played that, viewed how Asian gamers’ review and reaction, watch how stupid this game’s dev team is, how they use *** excuses to *** their fans off, you wont love it, you wont. not at all.

  11. Gandalf says:

    GIVE ME MONSTER HUNTER f2cking Crapcom!!!

  12. Hunter says:

    I have saved $ 90 in my account waiting for monster hunter games, fifa 15 but only if you have AD-HOC because the online is ***, pro evolution soccer AD-HOC. I have bought monster hunter unite, battle royale playstation, fifa 13, dokuro, mortal kombat, call of duty, chaos ring, sly cooper, urban, fruit ninja, dbz, nfs most wanted, rayman, machinarium, metal gear.

  13. Tech84 says:

    If only they would release a new monster hunter game for both Japanese and western versions I promise you this would really help push Vita sales through the roof!

    cmon Sony and CAPCOM make this happen!!

    – I have been saying this for since forever.

  14. hinata says:

    Shows that the Vita has a great library but some gamers out there are just too ignorant to bother importing in order to find those hidden gems but rather have the same old bland ***.

    I’m looking forward to more Senran Kagura games since I really enjoyed how Shinovi Verses turned out.

    • machomuu says:

      The Vita doesn’t really have enough games to have hidden gems. Generally they don’t catch the eyes of core gamers due to their being niche in nature. Which certainly bodes well for variety.

  15. Trunk208 says:

    Why is it always almost nude Mature Games to be the best why not just made it nude when they could of just fking made a rated A game since its so stupid to make games of M instead of A when there is an A lol

    • darke says:

      Because Sony et al don’t allow ‘adult’ games on their consoles; if you want ero-games you need to buy the PC versions.

      Ultra violent is apparently fine; but anything that gets an adult-only: no.

      • jpum48 says:

        I’d assume there’s some kind of regulation because people would play eroge in public where kids are present etc.

      • d@rk51d3 says:

        Actually, there’s a whole string of ero games on the PSP. Mostly strip janken types…………..ummmm, apparently.

  16. lolwut says:

    Already playing most of it (yes, in Japanese version), so i made my own list.
    1) Neptune U from same dev of Shinovi Versus, Tamsoft.
    2) Digimon Story
    3) Phantasy Star Nova
    4) Makai Shin Trillion
    5) IA/VT

  17. ajom says:

    Need most poplar game as like GTA psvita, God of war ,Tom rider, etc

  18. DehFury says:

    thats why we need the eCFW for the vita to be released soon

  19. ErnieBall says:

    What a great year for fans of digital ***ies and panties.

  20. notn4 says:

    I need nhl!!!!

  21. ismail says:

    There is nothing for me this year

  22. fatman01923 says:

    I have been really contemplating whether or not I should sell my Vita. I am interested in a few on this list such as Freedom Wars, and SENRAN KAGURA SHINOVI VERSUS. The last game I bought was Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remastered HD. I like JRPG’s but not when its the only games in my library! Not really into the indies either, won’t even get into the prices. Only been holding on just to see if Vita can be cracked wide open so I can play N64 or possibly even Dreamcast on the go… One could dream.

    • ahmerkhan says:

      hey guys tbh i just concluded that , i like vita but its a waste of money because if you compare the vita titles with psp old titles ,u,ll know that psp titles were more than vita and they r like exclusive titles and we only have indies and old ports .. no updated god of war etc// although the vita hardware is powerfull , but *** r developer doing .. we need AAA games like killzone mercenary .. i want tomb raider , max payne 3, gta updated series ., games like that etc.. we are spending too much money for games and memory cards so why they dont care ..otherwise this device will be flopped …. thx for reading .. do reply

  23. mlc says:

    Your picture of Disgaea 4 is probably from Disgaea 3, unless they made new lower quality sprites for all the Disgaea 4 characters.

  24. Jason says:

    So mostly Kiddie *** RPG’s and a Monster Hunter copy, boy, can’t wait /s

  25. mangosteam says:

    LIKE! fb haha

  26. Zik says:

    kinda sad when games are more expectation from JRPG instead of regaluar Western RPG…

    when the last time USA released an RPG that wasn’t JPN? The only game i’ve seen that didn’t hit JPN til later was Killzone 3 and Killzone: Shadowrun…and that was released in EU…and it seem like the majority of the games released in USA are all FPS based…:(

    • hinata says:

      Why is that sad?

      Majority of western developers all want to make overpriced rubbish and then blame the gamers who don’t buy it because they aren’t mindless sheep,the only exception here is indie devs.

  27. 110706 says:

    so much with AAA games for Vita.

  28. FonFon says:

    “I swear I purchased it for the scenario!”

    Lies! XD

  29. Seb says:

    but the wolf among us isnt available on psn

  30. Panther says:

    Where is Monster hunter? :(( I want Monster Hunter on my Vita!!!

  31. LD recharged says:

    I really like the game of “Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus” bad thing is that I could not buy DLC’s,: ‘(
    Too bad the only other two titles (Burst & Shinku) went to the NDS, this console has regional blocked.

  32. Jdub says:

    Honestly, Rpgs are the only games I usually like on handheld anyways. Im looking forward to Disgaea, Tales of Hearts, and natural doctrine. People can complain about getting games like Resident Evil, Infamous and GTA on the Vita, but the fact is that the idea is more appealing than the reality. After playing GTA for 20 minutes I would imagine that I would rather be playing this on my tv with an xbox or ps controller. I think Borderlands was a perfect example. It was one of the top wished for games to come out on the Vita and it sold like poop. But I do agree with Elder Scrolls and Monster Hunter. Bring those on please. 🙂

    • fatman01923 says:

      Borderlands 2 for Vita was a disaster because its a port of a game that came out nearly two years before it. People who wanted to play Borderlands would have been brought the game on the other platforms by now at cheaper prices, “why pay $40 for a 2 year old game that I played before” was probably the reasoning in most gamers minds.

    Yeah and everybody watches anime for the plot.

  34. Buck Knaked says:

    Where is Dragon Age, Halo, Elders Scrolls for the Vita? Hmmmmm….It seems I went through Sony’s gaming wormhole and ended up in Asia! So, where are these two Vita games?

    Fukushima Wet Dreams
    Ebolapocalypse

  35. Joji says:

    The statement about Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 is wrong. While the series got horrible ratings from the WEST since most western game reviewers are nothing more than mindless violent and realistic video game lovers, the game received very good reviews in Japan.

    OMG! Tactical rpg’s? Really? I wanna see a hawt bod ruuning on the screen dealing devastation for The Greater Good tm. TRPG is such a waste for the vita. Every time I play my Disgea on my vita i really cant imagine why it couldnt have just been made for the PSP. It definitely aint the graphics.
