PS Vita update 1.80 enables PSone Classics

Posted on August 27, 2012 - 4:10pm by Sean Hinz

Finally PSone games are coming to Vita tomorrow (hell yeah!). And though we haven’t received an official listing of every compatible title, MonkeyPaw Games has. It appears that games like Toomba!, Arc the Lad 1 & 2, Vanguard Bandits, and Alundra will all be available for download when the Classics go live. MonkeyPaw Games president John Greiner had this to say about the release:

“With these fine classics soon available on PS Vita, gamers will have access to our best RPG and action titles… Games like Tomba!, Arc the Lad and Alundra are a blast to play on the go. And now gamers can easily share these classic PlayStation experiences with their friends.”

If you have previously purchased these for PS3, they will be available for free on your Vita. Additionally it was revealed at E3 that a number of other compatible games would  include: Wild Arms, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy 7, Cool Boarders 2, Twisted Metal 2, and Jet Moto. This does not mean they will be available right out the gate though. What other PSone Classics should come to Vita?
