Other titles that are on sale include Hexyz Force and the Dept. Heaven PSP collection, a host of genre twisting RPGs and SRPGs from developer Sting. Additionally there is the RPG Crimson Gem Saga, the dungeon crawling RPG Class of Heroes and the action packed brawler Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble.
?Whether you're a PSP owner who has watched Atlus RPGs from afar, your eyes glued to your pervy game-watching binoculars but your wallet unable to open itself for the cause, or perhaps you spend your evenings making sexy time with the two nubs on your new PlayStation Vita,? commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus, ?Now you can dive into a library of critically acclaimed Atlus PSP system games that delivers hundreds of hours of deep, compelling RPG adventures and promises to thoroughly satisfy your hardcore gamer cravings.?

Despite the name of this event being ?Re-Vita-lized,? there is still some question as to whether or not these titles will work on the Vita. As of early March 29 not all of the titles were showing up on the Vita PS Store. Atlus has said that they are looking into that problem and that some users have reported success by first downloading the titles to their PlayStation 3 and then transferring it over to the Vita.
Have any of you tried to play these games on the Vita? If so, did you encounter any problems?
