Best RPG available for Vita now?

12 replies 3978 views Edited May 13, 2012

I know there is nothing great from this genre out now except oldies from the PSP.   I did not own one so looking for the best suggestion.

Not really into the Japanese stylistic artsy kinda.   Thinking more like Dark Souls, KOA, Skyrim style.   All suggestions are appreciated.  Thank you.

Dungeon Hunter: Alliance

It's the best I can think of for what you want.

Sorry, I wasn't clear that I am looking for PSP suggestions.  I have checked out everything made for the Vita and nothing really that inviting (hoping E3 changes that), but there is so much for the PSP that you can download right now.

I am currently downloading GOW and 3rd Birthday.   Reviews suggest Dissidia, Disgaea, and Tactics Ogre.  I am looking for more of that 3rd person RPG in real time.   Action oriented.

Suggestions?

Disgaea 3 for the Vita is a great game that will keep you entertained for a long time. Some good psp rpgs are: Persona 3 Portable (one of my favorites), Tactics Ogre, FF Tactics, FF4 Complete Collection, and of course the Monster Hunter games. Dissidia is not an rpg but its a fighting game with many rpg elements so you would probably like it. Its actually my favorite fighting game on the psp.

Well to start with Dissidia is not an RPG. It is a Fighter game with some small RPG like elements that is based on the Final Fantasy franchise. It is not an RPG. I'm positive others will also suggest Monster Hunter Freedom. The Monster Hunter franchise is a good Action/Adventure series, but it is not an RPG franchise either.

Most of the best RPGs for the PSP are turn based and not quite the 3rd person Action RPG. Ys Seven and Ys: The Oath in Felghana are about the only 2 Action RPGs that I saw in the list of current PSP offerings for the Vita via the PSN Store on the Vita that I can suggest. Unfortunately Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core is not available for download or I'd recommend that.

I know the following list isn't what you're asking about but unfortunately the games you want are nearly non-existant on the PSN Store for the Vita. If you don't mind turn based combat then I can suggest the following titles:


  • Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Persona
  • Lunar: Silver Star Harmony
  • Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection
  • Crimson Gem Saga
  • Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness
  • Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days

The Disgaea series is what's known as Strategy RPGs. Turn based combat. It can get a bit annoying at times and it done on a grid, sort of like Chess or Checkers. Tactic Ogre is also an SRPG.

If you want some great Action games I can make some suggestions there as well. But I'll wait for a response first.

I agree DIsgaea on Vita will be the best.....until Gravity Rush! But a PSP RPG this man seeks, so Corpse Party is great! Horror, Japanese character art, pixel graphics, Japanese voice track. The perfect RPG for any RPG or JRPG fan.

Better than my smartphone's, but it is still not good enough for a game system because of the price.

I suggest you to surf the japanese PSN store, it releases a lot of great RPGs that we can't see in the US.

I guess nobody has suggested this yet, but ZENONIA is also a fun RPG. It's your Old skool RPG look, that's actually addicting. Found in the Minis section.
