Arc System Works has more PlayStation Vita games than Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R. They created a mahjong game and brought Magical Beat from arcades to Sony’s handheld too. Their next Vita game is Damascus Gear: Tokyo War Begins which is just one part of the Damascus Gear series.

The Vita game is a hack & slash game with mecha. You can collect parts and customize your robots and get back on the battlefield to complete missions. Damascus Gear: Tokyo War Begins looks like a cross between Front Mission and Diablo. You can get in on December 25 on Japan’s PlayStation Store for 1,800 yen ($17).
