NieR: Automata Director Yoko Taro Wants A Next-Gen PS Vita Successor

NieR: Automata Director Yoko Taro has expressed on Twitter that he wants to see a PS Vita successor. While he mentioned that the release of the Nintendo Switch helps, he would prefer a smaller next-gen handheld.

Here is what he said on Twitter:

VITA の後継機が欲しいなあ。Switch が出たから少し気持ちは落ち着いてるけど、もうちょっと小型の次世代携帯ゲーム機が触りたい。物理キーの無いスマートフォンでは満たされない欲望を満たしたい。

I want a Vita successor. While I feel a bit relieved since the Switch appeared, I’d like a slightly smaller next-generation portable game machine. I’d like to satisfy the desire that cannot be satisfied by smartphones, that don’t have physical buttons.

While Sony has no plans for a new portable system at the moment, we are sure that Yoko Taro is not the only person who wants a new PlayStation portable console.

What are your thoughts on a PS Vita successor? Do you want one, too? Let us know in the comments!

    So long it has backwards compatibility with its predecessors… and of course, cheaper memory card

    And since we are at it, with persona 5 as a launch title?

    Agree with the above, backwards compatible with PS1,2,3, PSP and Vita is a must as well as decent internal storage. I really hope they take the risk. Sony have wasted a lot of money on poor services like Playstation Now instead of supporting the Vita properly. I hope they change their mind and decide to make a new handheld.

    Agreed cheaper memory cards. Use SD or micro SD cards. Need four shoulder buttons though. Nintendo did a great job adding two extra ones along the top on the new 3DSXL. That would work. I also vote for the OLED screen to come back.

    The current Vita is an awesome piece of hardware. Much improved over the PSP. I really believe the overpriced proprietary memory cards, and lack of integration as a crucial part of the PS3/PS4 is what killed it.

    Let me clarify the integration part. The whole interface on the Vita felt foreign compared to the PS3/PS4. Personally I couldn’t stand the bubbles (not everything about them was bad). The settings menu on the Vita was very much like it’s bigger brother but why not use the same type of design/interface on the PS4 home screen for the Vita so they look and feel like they belong together?
