NIS America’s senior associate producer Alan Costa has revealed in an interview with MCV that the company will continue to support the PS Vita digitally but he admits that “it’s definitely a challenge.”
Costa said to MCV that the “fan base of the PS Vita is incredibly hardcore and it’s pretty established in terms of what kind content they liked.” But he also believes that the Vita “isn’t really the place to be right now”.
NIS America is one of the final supporters of the PS Vita as a platform but CEO Takuro Yamashita confirmed to MCV that Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony and YS VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana could be the last PS Vita titles that receive a physical release.
“The PS Vita is obviously on its way out, and the Switch is very, very strong. One thing in particular that makes it strong is that it has that handheld function, so going forward as a company, we want to target PS4, Steam and Switch, because over the next two years, the Switch market is only going to grow and become stronger.
However, we are also known as a company that’s really hung in there and is still one of the final supporters of the Vita as a platform. We will continue to support it digitally, but there’s a very strong chance that the final physical titles from us for the Vita will be Ys VIII and Danganronpa V3. That’s the strategy.”
