Immigration simulation Papers, Please looks to finally be crossing the border to the PlayStation Vita – a whopping three years after it was announced for the device. We’d given up hope on Lucas Pope’s thought-provoking puzzle game ever hitting the portable, but the title has just been rated for release in Australia, suggesting it’s not too far away.
You may remember the indie game attracting plaudits when it released on the PC in 2013, scooping several Game of the Year gongs – and even a BAFTA in the strategy category. You essentially play as an immigration officer, and must control the flow of people crossing the border. Among those trying to get in are terrorists, spies, and other unsavouries – who will you let through?
This game was revealed for Sony’s handheld all the way back at Gamescom 2014 and has been missing in action ever since. We’ll contact developer 3909 LLC and try to get word on a release date, as the wait for this has already been long and arduous.

Would love to give this a try. If it's on the short side, I probably will, but will most likely wait for a sale.
What's this mythical "Vita" thing, and where can you find it...?
Omg. Was convinced this was cancelled, particularly after the announcement assault android cactus development was on hiatus and the banner saga was canned. I literally looked for news on this yesterday.
Will pick this one up IF it gets released
Man, I never thought this would see the light of day! Fingers crossed it releases soon
Does that mean the Ps4 version will still happen?
Great. Papers, Please is a fantastic indie game. Very cold and thought-provoking.
Finally! I have always wanted to play this game and was disappointed when news dried up about its release on Vita. It is such a socially relevant game between the European refugee situation and the US refugee crackdown. I will pick it up on day one.
after playing through Uncharted 4 again and hearing the Papers Please reference again I was thinking why isn't this on PS4 hopefully the Vita version will end up cross platform
This was one of most anticipated titles that was in the works for Vita. Delighted this is still happening
Nice, better late than never.
Really hope this is coming, just about gave up on it.
Hope this is true, been wanting to give this a go for some time.
Dunno how playable this would be without a mouse.
Glory to Arstotzka!
