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

Ubisoft also announces Asphalt, Dungeon Hunter Alliance and Michael Jackson the Experience for Sony's upcoming handheld

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 Gamescomexpo 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 thefact 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 bigrollout during the Vita's US/EU launchseems likely.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
