Grand Theft Auto, Final Fantasy, Monster Hunter Set For Vita?
It makes perfect sense. It was on the PSP and it's a major third-party franchise, which Sony wants on the Vita (Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, and others are coming, too).
While everyone lies in wait for the announcement of an official launch date for Grand Theft Auto V, it has come to our attention that a UK retailer may have spilled the beans on a new portable installment in the award-winning series.
The listing at Play.com has been taken down, but Eurogamer was able to nab a screenshot before it disappeared: clearly, the game is called Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Nights and it holds a €39.99 price tag (about $50). There are no further details, besides the fact that three other titles were posted and then removed: Monster Hunter Portable 3, Tales of Innocence R, and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.
None of the companies involved have offered anything official, but that's a hefty list of great Vita titles. Monster Hunter was probably a given from the start, as it remains a huge driver of sales in Japan. Tales of Innocence R is already out in Japan (it launched in January), so perhaps the biggest surprise is that HD version of Final Fantasy Type-0. But surprises or no, this is fantastic news; more high-profile software for the Vita!
