Just a day after confirming that it’ll release in Japan this year, with Europe and US to follow early next year, Sony has said it’ll announce the release date of PlayStation Vita at Tokyo Game Show.

A blog post from SCEJ president Hiroshi Kawano confirmed the news, adding that the date “is finalized.”

Sony WorldWide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshdia will give the keynote to this year’s show, and consumers will be able to try the handheld at the show. It’ll also be playable at gamescom in a couple of weeks.

Thanks, 4Gamer and Erren.
