Hi guys! Thanks a LOT for the lovely feedback; I have already responded to all of you with feedback (refer to the below answers) and I also updated the thread. I mainly removed 150 titles from the "previously released games" and left around a 100 of them for would-be Vita owners (or even current Vita owners) who want a handy screenshot guide of some of the more recently released Vita games. I removed some of the "cancelled" games as well as some of the older Japanese games which likely have no chance of being localized.
Much love and feel free to send me feedback anytime :)

Some good games there in any case.
Just a Vita fan at heart who felt the platform had a far bigger library, quantitatively and qualitatively, than its given credit for so I wanted to help highlight these titles.

That said, of all that stuff there's about a dozen games in there that are right up my alley:
Heart Forth Alicia
I think realistically only 2/3 of that list will actually see release on Vita, but one can hope!
Hi moofers :D Thanks for the kind words. I heavily modified the list to make it more relevant to recent releases; feel free to share any further feedback if you had any ;D

So many games I'm looking forward to though, 2017 looks like a good year for the Vita.
Welcome aboard redcrayon :D I updated the list, should you have any feedback, do let me know bud ;D

You make a good point Grim, I doubt Telltale is looking at the system and it's been ages anyway since they made any updates. I'll have the Telltale titles removed for now.

Good point Moofers - your feedback alone inspired me to trim plenty of old stuff out. Should you have any other feedback, feel free to let me know. Enjoy ^^

Can't wait to see what this year brings. Plenty of new additions I'm sure, hopefully not quite as many removes as 2016 :(
Always nice to see you here Kresnik, here's hoping for a very solid year!

I expect that as well, I had them removed.

There's still a few games on here with no updates for ages (i.e. Betty Boop Bop); stuff that clearly isn't coming anymore but hasn't been confirmed (Tales from the Borderlands) or stuff that's all but officially cancelled (DriveDriveDrive is a "maybe in the future" from the dev).
Thanks for the kind words Kresnik, and right you are! I trimmed off around 150 games from the "recently" released games and around 30-50 or so from the Japanese list. Removed Betty Boop and the Telltale games as well.

I removed around 150 of them, I hope the list better now

I removed plenty, if you guys feel I need to cut it down more just let me know ;D

It is indeed, but the thread is for upcoming games, 2017 edition rather than upcoming games in 2017.

Before someone complains about this or that error, some mistakes at the beginning are inevitable, i want to see anyone here compiling a 200+ games list without errors, give it some time and FadyK will fix all the eventual errors. ;)
Heyyyy 2+2=5 :D I hope with a 150 of those taken off it'll be a lot more convenient to skim through. Should you have any other feedback please let me know ^^

Imagination is the Only Escape
- Luc Bernard is a single developer who notoriously announced a gaggle of WiiWare exclusive games in 2007-2008 before releasing any and basically none of them panning out. He briefly gained notoriety for claiming he'd make a game about the holocaust. Imagination is the Only Escape.
- In 2008 he releases Eternity's Child, this time on Steam instead of WiiWare because ????. In the 9 years it's been out it has been one of the lowest reviewing games on Steam and has sold a total of 10,000 copies.
- Around 2012 he announces, again, Imagination is the Only Escape, and runs an IndieGoGo asking for a few hundred thousand dollars. He gets something like $5000, maybe 2-3% of what he asks for. The game is not announced for Vita.
- A year later he posts the screenshot Fady K uses in the OP, which depicts... well, actually, not the holocaust, rather the german occupation of France, but let's not let the apparently lack of historical research get in the way of things.
- Around the same time he posts that the game is coming to Vita.
- 2014, 2015, 2016 go by with no updates.
- In November, 2016, yet another Luc Bernard team announces Plague Road, a Roguelike for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Vita. They try to raise about $25,000 and get about $50,000. They show off at PSX and have a partnership with Limited Run Games. I'm not going to say whether or not I think Plague Road will get finished and released, but does this suggest that Imagination is the Only Escape (a 2008 title revived in 2012) is under active development and actually going to release on Vita?
Reading over your post Stump, and I'm having serious doubts this will get released. I'll have it removed for now, thanks ^^

Good point, I'll shift up SRWV to the English side alongside DOAX3.

Always nice to see you in these threads, Shadowman16 :)

In Released Games (which I admit, I personally think should contain games that get released this year rather than games that have ever been released) you list Space Hulk Ascension.
This is a separate game from Space Hulk, and only came out for the PS4 not the Vita.
In Japan Only Games (which I also think should probably only contain games due this year) you list Gundam Breaker 3, SD Gundam G Generation Genesis, Dead or Alive Extreme 3, and Deemo which have English Asian releases.
You also list Super Robot Wars V which has had an Asian-English release confirmed.
You also have stuff like Gundam Conquest V, Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Fortress, World End Eclipse, and Judas Code where the servers have been shut down.
In Upcoming Games you list Minutes, which came out in February 2015.
You also list Airship Q. The Japanese release has an English patch, and the English version has released on PC - if it was going to come out as an actual English Vita Version I think it probably would have.
Also in Upcoming Games you list a load of stuff that isn't going to happen. I can give you a list of stuff that I believe hasn't had any updates since 2014 if you want, as that's a few years back now, but I'm not listing that here. I'm just going to list the ones that I believe have slightly more concrete reasons for not happening than a lack of even remotely recent updates.
Baboon - It came out in January 2015 (in Europe) and July 2015 (in Japan). If it was going to come out in the US it would have by now.
C-Wars - Reviews of the steam version say it's been abandoned.
Death Ray Manta - I'd say it hadn't been heard from since 2013 but that would be a lie because an entire 2 years after it was announced it still didn't necessarily know what it's going to be. Over at bagfullofwrong the original Death Ray Manta and the android version are free but unsupported downloads, so I can't imagine a Vita one is being worked on.
Kura - I can't even find what this is. That might not be a good reason to think it isn't happening, but surely if it was I'd be able to find something :x
LOUD on Planet X - Said on facebook that "the port to Vita is indefinitely delayed at this time"
Paneuropa - I think this was meant to be a PSMobile title before that went kaput. I don't think it was ever meant to be a full vita title.
Play Kiseki untitled game - I'm not sure what it is and I can't find any reference to it in anything other than these threads atm.
Project Phoenix - It's never going to happen. Okay, okay, it's "delayed until 2018" ... but seriously, it's never going to happen. And even if it is, 2018 is next year ;)
SilverQuest: Gaiden (what you have listed as "Miniflake") - The PC version has been in Early Access since December 2014 and steam reviews suggest it's been abandoned.
Skeleton Rider - It came out in July 2014 (In Europe). The lack of US release might be due to this claim that the game rips someone else off. Anyway, it's been two years. It ain't coming.
Super Forget-Me-Not - Okay, so his old blog is gone. The new one (that started in November) doesn't mention SFMN but it's not listed under games, and before it was gone it said "this is taking forever. i'm still keen but haven't really worked on it for ages..."
(I made note of it back in August but seemingly didn't make note of the actual date he wrote it, if it ever said)
Vacant Sky Awakening - There was always some weird engine trouble. The PC Version has 3 Acts available for preorder and dated 2 years ago. It's not looking promising.
Hey there Ephidel - thanks a lot for being that person, your feedback has been most helpful! And I mean VERY helpful. Cleaned up much of the upcoming games list thanks to you! I did keep Project Phoenix cause this is the 2017 edition of an upcoming games for Vita thread rather than upcoming games for the vita in 2017 only. Thanks a LOT for your lovely feedback.

Thank you very, very much for the kind words jjasso21! I cleaned up the list a lot and will regularly update the thread with news of upcoming games as i'm sure many of the awesome Vita fans in this thread will too :D

I agree with you about the telltale stuff, though the nightcry devs told me to stay tuned for the Vita version of the game, here's hoping...

Thanks dangerblade - i'll take your word for it ;D It has been removed.

You are most welcome boingball :) Happy new to you too! Enjpy the thread and stay tuned for more updates :D

Man everytime i see your new updates i see a new game i never saw before so thanks for that!
Thank you so very much incpdo, always nice to see you around the Vita threads friend :) I cleaned up the list so hopefully the new list is far more accurate ;D

But like others already mentioned, the list is full of games that already released. So shouldn't they be removed from a list of upcoming games?
Thanks for the kind words yaffi; trimmed the list a lot more, let me know if you guys have any other feedback ;D
