PS Vita Case with L2 R2 Triggers is Only for Second Gen Vita: DAMMIT

by Lambert Varias

Even though many PS4 games have or will have support for Remote Play on the PS Vita, the handheld’s lack of actual L2 and R2 triggers severely gimps the experience. Now we have some good news and bad news. The good news is that a third party manufacturer will release a PS Vita case that adds the two triggers. The bad news is that it will only work with the second generation Vita.

The case, which is made by Joetsu Denshi Kogyo, will be available in Japan this April for about $25 (USD). From the images on Rakuten it appears that the case uses a mechanical solution. The L2 and R2 triggers seem to be connected to buttons that tap the rear touch pad on the appropriate spots, a solution so simple you’d think Sony would have come up with it when the handheld first launched.

Sony, in case it wasn’t obvious enough this accessory is for customers like me who have at least two of your current products. Come on guys. Show us some love.

    Sorry man, the original Vita already has these albeit a bit different. Look up the PS Vita Trigger Grip.

    • You’re both right and wrong. You’re right in that there are already ways to add L2 and R2 buttons to the original PS Vita, but the Trigger Grip is not one of them. That case only adds larger triggers for the Vita’s existing L and R buttons. This one ADDS L2 and R2 buttons.

      The solution I’m talking about is DIY modding, but the case I talked about in the post is more user-friendly.

    Actually the trigger grips are GRIPS you fool. This accessory actually adds extra buttons instead of simulating a dualshock controller feel

  3. Mikey says:

    Alan is right. Alex is very wrong. Probably commenting on something he knows nothing about. If he even owns a Vita he obviously doesn’t own the trigger grips.

    You know Sony could use the mystery port for the original vita

    It has actually been confirmed that the “mystery port” is designed for video out. whether they intended to disable it before launch in favor of ps TV idk..
