Limited Run Games held its E3 presentation at noon Pacific today and revealed much of its planned release schedule for 2019. The entire remainder of their Vita list was revealed and their first title for the 3DS was unveiled. MIA from the list was VAL-HA11-A for Switch, which was promised earlier…its absence is curious and we hope it’s not a bad sign.
First, here is Limited Run’s final Vita list. Sony shut off Vita production earlier this year; these games made it through the approval process before then. Vita has done good business for Limited Run; whenever a game is offered on both Vita and any other platform, the Vita version sells out five times as fast. Collectors be hungry!
