Oh here we go. Ahead of the expected to be Vita-centric TGS press conference from Sony soon, Famitsu’s lifted the lid of several unannounced titles for the platform, including Ninja Gaiden and Katamari.

Capcom’s confirmed in the magazine that it’ll have a version of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 for the handheld’s launch.

Also dropped is a Ninja Gaiden game, subtitled Sigma, from Tecmo Koei, although it’s unknown at this point if it’s a spin-off or a specalised version of Ninja Gaiden 3 for the handheld.

Namco will too be bringing a version of Katamari to the device, but details are unknown at this point.

Square Enix has also committed to the launch of Vita with Hell’s Army. The game is a four-player musou monhun game from Square and Entersphere that’ll be a launch game.

Its also unveiled Lord of Apocalypse, which is though to be a sequel to Lord of Arcana which released earlier this year in the west for PSP. Apocalypse will release on PSP as well as Vita.

Expect these games to be part of the Sony presser in some form. Follow our report of the press conference here, and watch the frontpage for anything break worthy.

Thanks, GAF.
