PS Vita Release Schedule and The List of Mystery

Welcome to the Vita release page and The List of Mystery and Possibility!
  • Incredibly, we're in 2021, the Vita will be 10 this year, and games still hit PSN and physically. 
  • Some are now physical-only (Nicole, Death Tales) to ensure the developer maximises profit (fair enough) and as Sony roundly ignores the Vita's PSN app. 
  • Massive thanks to all the devs and publishers still supporting the handheld that Sony forgot. 
  • Unless Sony changes its tiny corporate mind, physical releases will continue for Asian-based publishers like Eastasiasoft until early 2021, but now in very limited numbers.
