    I thought I heard that Paranautical Activity was also due this week but don’t quote me on that. Anyway, great week for the Vita if you ask me. Just like that last couple of weeks! Makes me really happy to see.

      Yes, Paranautical Activity should be released in April, too, but it’s not confirmed yet.
