The PlayStation Vita may be a great handheld, but at the time of its launch, Sony had an uphill battle against the Nintendo 3DS and mobile devices like smartphones. Even so, there are still plenty of great video game titles on the system. These PlayStation Vita exclusives are fantastic and well-worth purchasing for the PlayStation Vita if you decide to pick one up and a few video game titles on the cheap. While there’s been some fear from Sony knocking down the PlayStation digital market for some older platforms, it doesn’t look like the PS Vita will be one of them.
Tearaway – PlayStation Vita exclusives
Tearaway may be best known for its PlayStation 4 remake called Tearaway Unfolded. However, the original title started back in 2013 on the PlayStation Vita exclusives. The development team called Media Molecule is famous for providing colorful and kid-friendly video game titles like their most famous creation, LittleBigPlanet.
In Tearaway, the player is transported into a makeshift paper world where the player takes the role of a male or female character who must deliver messages around the world.
While the PlayStation 4 expansion on this game makes it the more ideal title to choose between the two, Tearaway on the PlayStation Vita makes up for this by offering more unique game mechanics for handheld systems.
For example, players can use the rear panel to interact with the in-game world along with using the touchscreen for various game mechanics like paper cutting.
LittleBigPlanet Vita – PlayStation Vita exclusives
The LittleBigPlanet franchise is best known for the PlayStation franchise since it was first released on the PlayStation 3. Players control cartoon characters as they try to solve various puzzles in a fun platforming adventure. This franchise is available in several batches and it is a family-friendly title. While not all video game titles are available on PlayStation Vita, there is a section that works very similarly to previous releases.
The developers have also worked on various hardware-focused aspects of the PlayStation Vita, such as using the touchscreen to interact directly with the game’s environment. One of the other aspects that will keep players interested in the game is the available content creation tools where players can create a custom map and share it with others online.
Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines
Serving as the sequel to Ore no Shikabane o Koete Yuke is Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines. This one of the PlayStation Vita exclusives was first shown in 2011 but it won’t be released until 2015 for Western markets.
Much of the game acts as an homage to the 1999 PlayStation title but the developers have opted to move into the 3D element with the gam. But if you’re wary of choosing the game simply because it’s part of the game.
Players will find that the game is set more than a hundred years after the events of Ore no Shikabane o Koete Yuke and that it does not have any direct connection in terms of the game’s story. Instead, players will find that their protagonist is on a grand quest to defeat a demon.
