Tetracast - Episode 128: The Ongoing Death of the PlayStation Vita

Welcome to the latest edition of the Tetracast, RPG Site's weekly podcast!

Before we get into the big topics of the last week, we always like to talk about the games we have been playing. Adam shows off his tank-building skills with Metal Max Xeno while also being disappointed in the end product. Fortunately, Zack only has good things to say regarding CrossCode after its long development cycle.

And then we get into the news of the week! With Tokyo Game Show 2018 kicking off proper this past week, there is once again plenty of news to discuss. For one thing, Square Enix shared even more interesting tidbits about Kingdom Hearts III including a fateful encounter, and news that Utada is collaborating with Skrillex and Poo Bear for the game's opening theme song.

Meanwhile, Capcom revealed that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy will be heading to other platforms. Moving on, Sega confirmed the news we talked about last week that Resonance of Fate is coming to PS4 and PC, and GungHo finally revealed the changes that are coming to the Grandia HD and Grandia II HD Remasters.

Finally, Sony dropped a few bombshells as they announced the PlayStation Classic along with changes to their PlayStation Now service, while also putting the final nail in the coffin of the PS Vita. All that and more on the latest edition of the Tetracast!

This edition of the Tetracast features Adam Vitale (@king_seda) and is hosted by Zack Reese (@zackreese). As always, you can find links to the full episode of the podcast below along with our RSS feed, and also subscribe to us on iTunes or Google Play.
