Vita Is Going On A Japanese Road Trip

News PS Vita Sony

In a Pre-TGS conference, Sony has announced that the Playstation Vita will tour the Land of the Rising Sun, allowing potential buyers to try out the plethora of games that will be released in the coming months. The Vita will visit five cities starting November 19. The cities that the handheld will visit are Sapporo (Nov.19-20), Nagoya (Nov.26-27), Osaka (Dec. 3-4), Tokyo (Dec. 10-18) and Fukuoka (Dec. 19-20), with Tokyo having eight days of the handheld and during the launch day of December 17. Tokyo will also have several points of interest: Roppongi Hills, Parco department store in Shibuya, Takeshimaya plaza in Shinjuku, Yokohama station and the Sony Building in Ginza.

Of course, the tour would not be complete with games to play with. Games that will be featured in all cities include Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Dynasty Warriors Next, New Little King Story, Army Corps of Hell, Virtua Tennis 4, Shinobido 2, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Daze, Hot Shots Golf 6, Shin Kamaitachi no Yoru and Ridge Racer.

Roppongi Hills in Tokyo will be the biggest site of the tour with additional games playable, including Sumioni, Ragnarok Odyssey, Blazblue: Continuum Shift Extend, F1 2011, Asphalt Injection, Mahjong Fight Club, Lord of Apocalypse, Super Monkey Ball, Sawari Ma Kuru, Starstrike Delta, Reality Fighter, LittleBigPlanet, WipEout 2048, Monster Raider, Dream Club Zero Portable, Disgaea 3 Return, Katamari Damacy Novita, Tales of Innocence R, Dark Quest Alliance, and Michael Jackson: The Experience HD. I would suggest going to Roppongi Hills just for that collection of games that will be playable.

The Playstation Vita will also be released on December 23 for Hong Kong and Tawian, February 22, 2012 for North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa and December 23, 2012 for Australia and New Zealand.


Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some DarkspawnI started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come).In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers.If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West.Oh and anime is awesome!
