God of War Collection Coming To PlayStation Vita May 6

Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation Vita collection of Kratos’ first adventures will be coming later this spring. The two PlayStation 2 titles will be bundled together for the portable system.

God of War Collection assembles God of War 1 and 2. It will be priced at $ 29.99

Our Take
This is a port of the original HD collection of God of War games. It also is part of the answer to my recent inquiry about the lack of first party games on the Vita’s schedule.

No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either Coming Soon To Vita

The portable No Heroes Allowed series is making its return with a fifth entry. This time out, the title is going free-to-play with a new gameplay style.

The 8-bit art style returns, but this time players will be taking on the role a God of Destruction. Apparently, your choice of smiting comes in the form of match-3 puzzles against heroes whom you then capture and enslave.

The title is scheduled for this spring. No specific release date or price are confirmed.

Our Take
I’ve heard good things about the No Heroes Allowed series, but free-to-play and match-3 are turn offs for me. I’ll wait until we know more, but this sounds like something better suited for a phone than my Vita.

Indie Vita Title Murasaki Baby Confirmed for North America

Sony has confirmed that the odd indie title Murasaki Baby, to which we first were introduced at Gamescom 2013, will be coming to North America. The title is in development at Italian studio Ovosonico.

In Murasaki Baby, players are responsible for guiding a young girl through her strange dream world. Using the Vita’s touch screen, you’ll take her hand and change the mood of the world to solve puzzles.

If you’re planning on attending IndieCade East in New York City this weekend, you’ll have a chance to get your hands on the title. Murasaki Baby is due out later this year. You can read our hands-on impressions from Gamescom 2013 here.

Our Take
Murasaki Baby appears to have some interesting puzzles to complement its dark aesthetic. The Vita has become home to unique experiences, and I’m always glad to find one that takes advantage of the handheld’s features.

[Update] That Slimmer Vita Is Coming To North America With Borderlands 2 In Tow

Sony has announced that the slim PlayStation Vita that is already confirmed for Japan and Europe will be coming to North America. Europe is getting it with a bundle of indie games. North America gets to shoot and loot.

Sony announced at a Los Angeles press briefing that the new, thinner Vita is coming in a Borderlands 2 bundle. The package will be coming this spring for $ 199.

The new Vita will come with an 8GB memory card in addition to the 1GB of onboard storage. The new Vita does drop the OLED screen in favor of an LCD screen, though.

Borderlands 2 for Vita comes with six DLC packs: Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Psycho Character Class, Mechromancer Character Class, Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1, and the Collector’s Edition Pack. No word yet on the remaining DLC that has been released for the other versions of the title. If you're a PlayStation 3 Borderlands 2 player though, you'll be happy to know that the Vita version supports cross-save so you can move your progress back and forth between the versions.

 

Our Take
This is a smart bundle, especially as Borderlands 2 has a significant fan base. I’m still hoping to hear more about the DLC that comes with the new, portable version.

Sly Cooper Collection Coming To Vita In May

Sony is stepping up its back catalog conversion to portable form. In addition to the God of War Collection on track for May, Sony is reading Sly Cooper’s three PlayStation 2 games.

The Sly Cooper Collection will arrive on May 27th. The most recent title in the series, Thieves in Time, was released on the Vita also.

Our Take
These collections certainly flesh out the Vita’s upcoming first-party release list. I’m hopeful that we’ll also hear about portable versions of other series, including Uncharted and inFamous.
