Namco confirms Vita launch line-up

Buyers of the upcoming PlayStation Vita handheld will be able to take home new Ridge Racer, Katamari and Shinobido games at launch.

The console will arrive on February 22nd 2012 in the UK, US, Europe, Middle East and Australasia.

Namco Bandai says the three games will be available at launch in the US. Although the titles have not yet been given firm European release dates, UK retailers can expect the titles to arrive around the same time.

Ridge Racer is the latest in Namco Bandai’s popular arcade racing series, while Touch My Katamari allows players to control a growing ball of junk to progress, like other games in the bizarre franchise.

Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen is a ninja game developed by Acquire, the studio behind the Tenchu stealth titles.

We’re pleased today to officially confirm three titles for the PlayStation Vita system to gamers across North America excited for the launch of this impressive new handheld gaming device,” said Namco Bandai Games America’s VP of marketing Carlson Choi.

Namco Bandai will be delivering top-tier content for the launch of the PS Vita in a very big way.”
