As E3 enters its final day, it once again feels far too short. It has been a typically jam-packed affair, but we can always have more, much more.
With a good look at the Wii U from Nintendo, not to mention that innovative controller, and some very exciting technology from Microsoft, E3 has certainly delivered the goods.
OK, so we didn’t get a look at any next-gen consoles from Microsoft or Sony. But on the games front, there was more than enough to get excited about.
Some new titles from Nintendo will demonstrate just what the Wii U ‘gamepad‘ is capable of, and a gameplay trailer for Halo 4 stole the show for Microsoft.
But it wasn’t just fully-fledged consoles getting their share of new titles, the PS Vita is also due for some exciting new games in the autumn.
The latest handheld from Sony has had, shall we say, mixed fortunes since its worldwide release earlier this year. Sales haven’t been abysmal, but Sony would certainly have liked them to be a little better.
But if there were ever some titles to turn the Vita’s fortunes around, it’s those announced at E3. So what can we expect from the Vita in the coming months?
Assassins Creed III: Liberation on PS Vita
We’ve known for a long time that Assassins Creed would eventually make an appearance on the PS Vita, and we’ve not been disappointed.
Liberation is due to be in a similar vein to its big brother, Assassins Creed III, but will for the first time feature a female protagonist. The game will make use of the Vita’s touchpads, and will cross-over, in some areas at least, with the full game on the PS3.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Unclassified on PS Vita
Details are thin on the ground for this exciting title, but we do know that this is going to be its own game, made specifically for the handheld console. So it won’t be a scaled down (or in other words, worse) version of the upcoming Black Ops 2.
Due out by the end of this year, CoD: Black Ops Unclassified will bring some added gunfire to the Vita. Surely sales will have to go up when this gem is released?
