Posted on September 14, 2011 - 8:20am by Ryan Conway

With last night’s Sony press conference, I think it is safe to say that the Tokyo Game Show is now in full swing and in predictable fashion, the center of attention was Sony’s upcoming Vita handheld, which will be released in Japan on December 17 (NA and European releases are still unknown).

Sony announced that the PS Vita will have a fairly strong launch lineup with 26 games in total. With a list ranging from such games as Uncharted, BlazBlue, Disgaea, Katamari and even Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, it seems that Sony is well poised to make it a hit straight out of the starting gate.

Here’s the full list:

  • @field
  • Army Corps of Hell
  • BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend
  • Browser Sangokushi Touch Battle
  • Dark Quest
  • Disgaea 3 Return
  • Dream Club Zero Portable
  • Dynasty Warriors Next
  • F1 2011
  • Fish On
  • Hot Shots Golf 6
  • Katamari Damacy No Vita
  • Lord of Apocalypse
  • Michael Jackson The Experience
  • Minna to Issho
  • Monster Radar
  • Nico Nico
  • Power Smash 4
  • Project NOELS (download only)
  • Ridge Racer
  • Sawari Ma Kuru
  • Shin Kamaitachi no Yoru
  • Shinobido 2
  • Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss
  • Yuusha no Kiroku

Now it’s safe to say that some of these games will be Japan only releases but there are still plenty of games on the way, with Sony promising that there are at least 100 games currently set for the handhelds launch window. Although it should be said that window will likely be as long as a few months, at least.

It’s great to see that Sony is taking theVita's launch seriously and making sure that it has as strong a launch as possible.

We’ll have more Sony and TGS news throughout the day!
