A Montage Of PlayStation Vita Games, Including Project Gravity And Dragon Crown

By Ishaan . June 6, 2011 . 8:25pm

Sony just released a video showing off some PlayStation Vita games that are in development. Two quick things to point out:


1. Gravity Daze appears to have undergone a name change. It is now titled Project Gravity.


2. Make sure you catch the last game — Dragon Crown — in particular. What does that remind you of?

    Dragon Crown, VanillaWare. MUST HAVE.

    • PrinceHeir

      hell yeah :D

      Gravity Daze and Dragon Crown is one of the few original games on PS Vita ^^

    • yeah, i notice that when the trailer showed up and i cant believe… OMG bring that game >.<

  • Ruin, Gravity, Dragon Crown, Hot Shots Golf, Uncharted, and more make me want this on day 1. Preordering as soon as possible.

    • Testsubject909

      I’m with you on all of those, but add Dynasty Warriors to me. With dual stick it will actually be fairly playable.

      • Zal_Yagun

        Warriors orochi 2 for the psp is very playable, just hope they make it so that the attacks chain better with more delay between button presses. I don’t remember any other time i actually had to really truely button mash in DW.

        Those waiting for a Shinobido sequel, your prayers have been answered. Dragon Crown reminds me more of Golden Axe with Vanillaware’s art style

        but SHIZZZZZ  all of the action games look sweet as hell. Weird they didn’t show resistance but, if these were all launch titles, just god damn. Sony why do you want my money so bad? I need the money to live.

  • Kai2591

    Looks NICE.

    btw whats the purpose of lifting the golfer in Hot Shots Golf? Haha looks fun though.

    • Testsubject909

      Probably to look under her skirt?

  • Guest

    Weaponlock in Dynasty Warriors 7 looked cool

  • xXDGFXx

    what is dragon crown supposed to remind me of :X

  • i think i saw an article back in 2009 talking about dragon’s crown… man PS Vita is mine day 1!

  • Dragon Crown, now i know what made watching all the live conference worth it.

  • Testsubject909

    Orgasms… Too many…

  • z_merquise

    Dragon Crown!? Is that a sequel to Princess Crown??

    I think I also read something at NeoGAF about a game that looked like it’s from Vanillaware (I’m currently in the office so I can’t watch any videos). If that’s indeed a Vanillaware game then my purchase for PSV is confirmed!

    So I finally got at home and watched this video. Then I saw Dragon Crown: OHMYGOD!!! HIGH-DEF 2D BEAT-EM-UP!! IT’S VANILLAWARE!!! THIS IS DAY 1!!

    Seriously, even my big brother said that it’s really look like a Vanillaware game.

    Useless trivia:
    Don’t you know George Kamitani used to work at Capcom back in the 90’s? He was the director and one of the main game designer for Capcom’s Dungeons and Dragons arcade game (the first one. Not sure about the sequel though).

    • xXDGFXx

      so that’s what it’s supposed to be of o_o
      i’m interested a lot more.

  • Uncharted, Ruin, and Gravity! And thats ust the begining! PSP is really begining to feel like a distant memory now xD

  • Exkaiser

    Hmn, nothing in this lineup is for me.

    I’ll be waiting a while for the Vita.

  • Scallion

    Wait, what? They look cool, but I’m sure you guys don’t pay attention to games just because of their big eye content, right?


  • kidplus

    Project Gravity and Dragon Crown are looking mighty good. Odin Sphere ftw.

  • Shadow_Raskolnik

    Damnit, if Project: Gravity and Dragon Crown both end up as launch titles for the PS Vita then I’m pretty much purchasing the system on day 1.

  • blah blah

    Dragon Crown?
    Even though we missed Princess Crown?
    And what about that E to T rating thing?
    It looked each of those things had a “go to http://www.esrb.org to get ratings info” thingy.

  • Covnam

    Besides the name it does look pretty sexy. Too bad it looks like the 3G version won’t include free service.
    I think Nintendo really dropped the ball not putting multi-touch on the 3DS considering the PSV is coming out so soon.

  • Remina

    I’d like to know if you’d be able to hook a PSV up to your tv like the PSP-3000? Streaming your games on a bigger screen for when you’re at home would be nice.
    I could see the games where you have to use the touch screen would make this a bit difficult to do; but perhaps they could have the game showing on both the handheld and tv for moments like that.

  • Darkrise

    HOOOOOLY Crap! I take back my hestitations and consideration of getting this game in 1 or 2 years later, Dragon Crown looks too good to miss! And so does Gravity.

    Oh yeah, has there been any mention so far that the PSV games are DL only? I pretty much missed about half of the Sony conference thanks to PlaystationHome messiing with me.

  • Balmung

    i want this so badly and i’m so glad its only $250 even though here in Australia it’ll be $300 for the wifi model its still totally worth it. looking forward to Gravity, Ruin, Dynasty Warriors, Shinobido 2, Reality Fighters and Street Fighter X Tekken (*.*)

  • Vino (Tim N)

    I know what I want for Christmas now =D

  • puchinri

    I don’t feel as excited for Project Gravity/Gravity Daze anymore, but I am still interested in seeing more of it. But Project Ruin has caught my eye. And is Dragon Crown really supposed to make me think of Princess Crown? Because for some reason, it didn’t… But maybe it’s been so long since I’ve seen anything of the game, I probably need to refresh my memory.

    Hopefully more software will be shown soon~. Or at least some kind of definitive talk of what else we can expect to see.

  • I’d fight that reality so hard!

  • 3:11 Shinobido 2? I’ve never heard of that, but it looks quite Tenchu. HMMM. Time to look this up!

    EDIT: And through the magic of internet, I found out that it has every reason to seem Tenchu-ish because it’s from Acquire. I’ve never heard of it, because it never got an NA release. So will the sequel make it? Who’s to know?

    • Bruce

      I liked the game even though it as pretty repetitive, i like that you get to choose your own daimyo , help them develop rifles and weapons . some of the enemies are also interesting like bears and heavily armored ninjas . the bears are a pain to kill though lol

  • This is going to be just like with the PSP. A lot of amazing games that will never see the day of light outside of Japan (unless you’re importing).
    How many VNs have been localised for the PSP? How many JRPGs have been localised for the JRPG? What’s the point of owning a Vita? I don’t like shooters and action games. I like slow methodical games that make you think.  

    • Err, the number of localised JRPGs far outweighs those that haven’t been localised.

  • Man, I thought that Gravity thing was Time Travellers.

  • I want Uncharted, Little Deviants, Project Gravity and Dragon Crown.  Need more games before I get a Vita (though really, once Falcom’s title is announce it will count as more than one game).

  • xflame10

    if the nintendo confernce dissapoints me.. im selling my 3ds first chance i get. This thing looks amazing.

  • Yamaneko22

    New Uncharted and Vanillaware game. Those two things are already much better than anything that 3DS has to offer so far. Plus Vita has the same price as 3DS? Wow, Nintendo needs a huge price cut fast;)

  • As long as I get my RPG fix like I did with the PSP, I’ll be happy with the Vita.  It’s only a matter of time, really, and I don’t think it’s going to be a problem at all.

    Dragon Crown:  do want.

  • LastFootnote

    Hmm, for a moment I thought that “Dragon Crown” was a confirmation of Grand Knights History being localized. I guess I’ll still have to keep my fingers crossed on that one.

    Not that I’m not looking forward to Dragon Crown, too. It is a VanillaWare game, is it not?

  • Gravity Daze/Project Gravity, Maybe Uncharted, LGB= DAY 1 

  • Yu_TheKing

    Is there anything there I could find fault in?! Not Yet… (Besides the Name)

  • Dragon Crown? AHhh, Princess Crown on the PSP! :)
    Also, Shinobido if I’am correct which was also on the PSP and PS2.
    Thus far, I ‘am already convinced to buy the PSVITA

  • JustaGenericUser

    Geez. They should have kept the name Gravity Daze. Project Gravity sounds generic.
