Sony Announces Hefty Vita Port Lineup With Suikoden And Resident Evil Revelations 2

Sony isn’t abandoning the Vita, but it’s clear the system’s role has changed. The powerful portable device has become the go-to place for recently released home console titles and PC gems, and that’s ok.

At PlayStation Experience, Sony announced a number of titles that will be headed to Vita in 2015. The long-awaited and oft-requested Suikoden and Suikoden II, classic RPGs from Konami, will arrive on December 9 on PS3 and Vita.

Towerfall, which started its life as an Ouya exclusive will make the jump to Vita concurrently with the Dark Tower expansion release on PS4. Both versions will be the fullest experience in 2015. Octodad: Dadliest Catch makes its goofy way to the handheld next year from Young Horses.

Capybara Games is readying Super Time Force Ultra will be making the jump from Xbox One and PC to PS4 and Vita (with Sony president of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida a playable character). For a different kind of action, you might want to consider Supergiant Games' Bastion when it arrives on the handheld. Or maybe bullet hell is your thing, in which case Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions might be up your alley.

Double Fine is updating the classic adventure game Day of the Tentacle for PlayStation 4 and Vita alongside its return to Grim Fandango. For those craving strategy, Stoic is porting Banner Saga to the handheld in 2015.

Finally, Resident Evil Revelations 2 will arrive on the Vita in addition to home consoles and PC. The Vita’s role has certainly changed, but for those looking for proven experiences when away from console, there’s a lot to look forward to.

Update: We forgot to include Drinkbox's newly announced title, Severed. You can check out a trailer for that here.
