MonkeyPaw Games’s PSone Classics to be playable on PS Vita tomorrow

Yes, PSone Classics are confirmed to finally be coming to the PlayStation Vita beginning tomorrow thanks to the previously announced System Software 1.80 update. Sony has been fairly tight-lipped regarding which classics would be compatible on day one however, we’re assuming because of licensing issues of some sort.

MonkeyPaw Games thankfully took it upon themselves to announce which of their own games will be playable.  So, Alundra, Vanguard Bandits, Arc the Lad, Arc the Lad II and Tomba! have been confirmed. If you’ve already picked them up from the PS Store, you should be able to just download them directly to your Vita after the update.

Read on for the announcement.
