Japanese games star in the next PS Vita sale


Hook some big savings!

Hey, you know what's cool? Games from Japan for the PS Vita! You know what else is cool? Not paying a lot for videogames! It just so happens that Sony agrees with me, and has decided that for the next fortnight or so, you won't have to pay a lot for a whole bunch of Japanese games on the PS Vita. Huzzah! 

Starting...well, a couple of days ago, a veritable host of the Vita's top wares go on sale via the PlayStation Network, and will go even more on sale if you've got PS Plus. Gravity Rush, one of the platform's best games to date, is even free as part of the PS Plus instant game collection. Other hot bangers like Soul Sacrifice, Atelier Totori Plus, and Street Fighter X Tekken are on sale, too. 

And on the week of the 20th, you can pair your copy of Dragon's Crown with Vanillaware's other Vita game, Muramasa Rebirth, along with the likes of Ragnarok Odyssey and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

That's a lot of games, and it's not even the full list (you can check that out below). So, Vita owners, see anything you like?
