We had a feeling that the PS Vita was going to be a major player at this year’s E3 expo and some exciting rumors prior to the event seems to have confirmed this. We have a list of the number of games that may have been leaked to share with you now, one of which again mentions that Assassin’s Creed 3 will be getting a portable version as well.
It is no secret that the PS Vita has had a few painful months, with a drought of games and apps threatening to justify the purchases of millions of Vita owners who had picked up the system at full price at launch either in Asia last year, or February this year in the US and Europe.
Thankfully though, Sony looks to be giving their Vita the full support they promised at launch and we now have a series of new game release whispers to tell you about before Sony’s event kicks off on June 4th at 6pm Pacific Time. According to a NeoGaf forum poster, Assassin’s Creed 3 will be coming to the Vita on October 30 as Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation. This is the same release date as the console versions and we’re hearing that it will be a ‘true AC experience’ and will be developed by Ubisoft Sofia. Interestingly, the main character may be a female assassin by the name of Aveline and the game is set to include an online multiplayer mode as well. Check the Neogaf link for much more details.
That is a pretty major leak for the PS Vita right? That’s not all we have though, as the Vita may be getting a version of Medal of Honor: Warfighter as well, if a French retailer reveal is to be believed. If true, it means that Vita owners will then have a choice of FPS shooters by EA and Activision once Call of Duty is out.
Where would we be without these precious retailer leaks? Over in Asia, popular seller Play-Asia has listed a game by the name of Metal Gear Solid, which isn’t thought to be related to the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. Don’t forget that the HD collection doesn’t even include the first Metal Gear Solid game, so could Konami be giving their prized asset a release all on its own?
Last but not least, there one more massive game that could be heading to the Vita. We’ve potentially seen games from Konami, Ubisoft and EA that are on the way but, how about a game from Capcom? UK-based retailer Play has put up a listing for Resident Evil portable. If Capcom were to answer our dreams, this could be a remake of the original Resident Evil game on PS1, which would obviously be amazing news for Vita owners. In our opinion, the first game still hasn’t been topped and this could turn out to be the biggest seller on Vita out of all these games rumored.
So that is Assassin’s Creed 3, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil and Medal of Honor: Warfighter, all potentially on the way for an announcement at E3. Which game is the most exciting for you? We love E3 week!
