The Vita's Getting 'Dead or Alive 5' And 'Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2' In 2013

Both games are getting "Plus" added to their titles as Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja bring Vita-specific features to the fighter and the hack and slash early next year.

I'm taking this as kind of a good news/bad news thing: the Vita has unexpectedly become a fine place to play a certain kind of fighting game (particularly those without six-button control schemes). And in spite of some reservations, I really liked "Dead or Alive 5," so seeing it make the jump to portable is good news. And while 2008's "Ninja Gaiden 2" was a mess, if the first "Ninja Gaiden Sigma" on the PS3 proved anything, it's that Team Ninja can take and synthesize fan feedback in remakes/rereleases of their popular titles, plus in spite of its many, many issues, "Ninja Gaiden 2" offered the kind of punishing difficulty and technical combat we've come to expect from the series.

So what's got me all worried?
