Ubisoft has always been an aggressive supporter of new hardware, and the trend continues for the upcoming PlayStation Vita. The company announced six titles in development for the handheld: Asphalt, Assassin's Creed, Dungeon Hunter Alliance, Lumines, Michael Jackson the Experience, and Rayman Origins. Lumines' return to Vita, however, is extremely noteworthy--that is one of the few PSP franchises never to be made available digitally on the PlayStation Store. Assassin's Creed will be a "brand new" game for Vita -- although details are non-existent at this moment.

“With its processing power, dual tactile screens and cameras, PS Vita allows creators like Ubisoft new and unique opportunities to develop innovative games,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer of Ubisoft in a press release. “We’ve got a strong and varied line-up that will offer fun and immersion to all audiences of the PS Vita.” "We're delighted with the support and innovative content Ubisoft are bringing to PS Vita,” said Zeno Colaço, Vice President, Publisher & Developer Relations, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. “Great games are at the platform's heart and with some of Ubisoft’s biggest and best brands coming to PS Vita, we are very excited to work with them in delivering the deepest gaming experience on the most powerful handheld entertainment system on the planet.”

      AC Bloodlines on PSP was ok if you are a big fan of the series. Not for everyone though. Dual sticks will be a big plus. More AC is always fine by me.

      Yup, new harware coming out, and there's Ubisoft, shitting out a pile of launch games.

      I really hope Rayman Origins turns out.
