Sony Pushing Vita’s Lineup Of Monster Hunter-esque Games With Akiba Event


All throughout the Vita’s lifespan, Sony have been attempting to replicate the success of Monster Hunter on the platform with a range of multiplayer co-op games for people that aren’t that interested in that one game they’re all trying to beat.


In their latest push for the Vita’s line-up of hunting action games, Sony are wrangling together several of these titles—both current and upcoming—in a special event in Akihabara on the 3rd and 4th of November for players to both get some hands-on time and also potentially win prizes.



The games include titles like God Eater 2, Toukiden, Soul Sacrifice Delta, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, Gundam Breaker and, because it’s fun, Dragon’s Crown. The key drivers are likely to be getting to check out a special mission for God Eater 2 (unavailable anywhere else), while Soul Sacrifice Delta will be getting some first-hand impression time with gamers. If you can’t make it, don’t worry as the event will be broadcast on NicoNico Douga.


Oh and if you’re wondering, that middle-aged salaryman dude with the armor duds is Kyouto, the head of the Kyouto Academy. Sony have been using him as their mascot for the Vita’s lineup of hunting action titles.
