    Cool, will get it on launch. Skipped it on Steam to get for Switch. Doing the same with Hollowknight. I’d rather have my indies have handheld functionality.

  • artemisthemp

    I already own this title on PS4 and I should most likely not buy it again but, just imagine how cool it will be to play in the bed or ad work during downtime makes me consider getting It +it’s important to support good games and the Switch.

    I own it on PS4 and Steam… could be i buy it a third time. >_>

    Switch is Vita 2.0 but with less features and way better support. :D

  • BFG

    People saying it are the typical non-japanese speaking westerners, and who werent much interested in the Vita library in the first place

  • Bitterbear

    Who is the Vita’s target demographic?

  • Dom Fass

    Sure it’s going on the switch, prepare to pay that nin-tax-do. Calling it at 35$ but have all dlc included

  • BFG

    Those who are interested in the niche stuff from various systems that I stated above

    There is also the fact the Switch is more a portable home console than a handheld. Case in point is the sized tablet + detachable joycons (instead of an unit with controls built-in), and retail games being priced in the same range as home consoles titles

  • Bitterbear

    That sounds more like that actual demographic the Vita ended up stuck with.

  • DrearierSpider

    Good stuff. It’s a game that works really well on the go, but you now you don’t need a dead console to play it portably anymore. Good stuff all around.

    I have 39 Vita games…

    …The Vita had tv output before Sony decided at the last moment to drop the support and not even sell the og vita accessory that lrt us plug a hdmi in. Only to try to sell the fail ps tv later. All for greed. Check out the prototype Vita thst had it apong with Micro sd support. The Vita COULD have been the Switch before the Switch but you know…Sony.

  • Anon_Amous

    Less features for now. In time it will get additional stuff, probably to coincide with paid online.

  • Switch really is the lean mean indie machine

    I dig it

  • Except Switch is actually selling well. lol.

  • Oh my fucking god we get it! You suck off the Vita every night! Can you not accept that some people might not like the shitty piece of plastic?

    I agree with you on the Vita TV (a poor attempt to sell a spin-off with some games that couldnt work) and the thing about memory cards, but Nintendo is also acting greedy with the price of the Switch accessories (specifically the dock, the joycons and the pro controller).

  • BFG

    Are you talking to yourself

  • Nah I am talking to a retarded bitch.

  • SLoWMoTIoN

    Agreed. I’ll defend the pro though for the batery life alone. But even then it should be 59.99 tops.
