Today, April 27, 2021, is the day that marks the end of the handheld console, PlayStation Vita. The final titles to ever be released on the game are available today and there are no further plans to bring any more games to the PS Vita moving forward. As a fan of the console myself, I never understood why it didn’t take off as well as it could have, but the populace never truly picked it up and so Sony is now moving forward, away from the era of this handheld device.
These titles, along with the rest of the games on the PS Vita virtual PlayStation Store library, will be available for the next four months. At the end of these four months, the PlayStation Store on the PS Vita will officially close. Unfortunately, this era-ending moment doesn’t come with any talk or rumors of a new handheld device from them either. So, what are the final games to release on the PS Vita?
ScourgeBringer by Flying Oak Games and Dear Villagers originally launched on PC via Steam on October 21, 2020, this pixelated rogue-lite platformer has made its way onto the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita just in time to be on this final game launch list. Before coming to the Sony platforms, it also released on to the Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo Switch.
The story follows hero Kyhra, who is sent away to uncover the secrets of an Eldritch monolith that is threatening to destroy her world. Armed with her trusty combat drone, she must shoot and slash her way through the infinite depths of an ever-changing dungeon, wherein gigantic bosses, ancient machines, strange ghosts, and untold secrets from previous explorers await.
