Cave is making a game for the Vita! [UPDATE May 2012: CANCELLED]
« on: September 13, 2011, 10:21:50 PM »
At least, it seems that way. I was already going to buy a Vita because there's so much awesome shit coming out for it (including a Ys IV remake!), but this will be icing on the cake. So glad they're finally making a game for a proper handheld. Let's just hope it's not Princess Dancer 2 or whatever the heck that DS game was called.

I was going to buy a Vita anyway, so I'm cool with this.

Vita's still going to be region-free, right? They didn't suddenly adopt Nintendo's bass-ackwards policy of making handhelds, which have always been region-free, suddenly region locked, I hope.

Yep, region free.

There's another Cave game coming for the Vita, called Shirotsuku DX - it's apparently based on one of their social games.

I'm with you, man. I have been thinking about a Vita as much as people like to slam Sony. This seals the deal. I am sort of worried about handheld shooters though I do tend to like the iOS ports for fun. But really, I like my 29" screens and LS-32 joysticks :D

I really wasn't interested in the Vita but this may sway me.

Cave has cancelled all their Vita projects in development, so this game is no more.

They should just release it with 1 ship and 1 stage.  It'd be almost like the Ridge Racer game.   :facepalm:

Maybe this means Cave will hold on to the 360 a little longer *crosses fingers*
