Lumines, Rayman Origins and Assassin's Creed headed to PS Vita

Showing a level of enthusiasm it normally reserves for the launch of new Nintendo consoles, Ubisoft today announced it has a whopping six new titles in development for the PS VIta. When Sony's flashy new handheld finally arrives in the U.S. and Europe next year, owners can look forward to playing Rayman Origins, Assassin's Creed and Lumines on the system, as well as Michael Jackson the Experience, Asphalt and Dungeon Hunter Alliance.

Sadly, details beyond the announcement were sparse. Two of the games, Asphalt and Dungeon Hunter Alliance, will be on display at Ubisoft's booth during the Gamescom expo this week, and we'll be able to share some hands-on details about Rayman's Vita outing tomorrow.

However, there's no word yet on whether the new Assassin's Creed will be a straight port of an existing/upcoming game (i.e. Revelations), or another handheld spinoff, and we don't yet know anything about the new Lumines aside from the fact that we're looking forward to seeing it. Ubisoft was also silent about when we can expect to see the games in stores, but a big rollout during the Vita's US/EU launch seems likely.

    It's just you. Lumines is overrated.

    And the PSV just shot up to the top of my list for "Things to Own and Worship." Seriously, this news excites me.

    Is it just me or is Lumines reallt under appreciated? I think it's a fantastic puzzle game rivaling even tetris in terms of fun and addictivity, AND you don't have to wait around forever for the damned I blocks. The PS Vita has just become even MORE attractive :D

    I wonder if Ass Creed will get cancelled for Vita, too.
