It’s been rumored for some time, but today, Sony made its arrival official – the PocketStation is back. Well, an app for it on the PlayStation Vita, anyway.

Sony has launched its new PocketStation app on the Japanese PlayStation Store this week, enabling users to use the features on a virtual version of the screened memory card device for the original PlayStation.

Users can play a number of games within the app, including Mega Man and Final Fantasy, as well as other nifty features that came with the original device. It’s currently being offered free of charge to all PlayStation Plus subscribers, and more features are detailed in the trailer below.

No word yet if the app will make its way to the U.S. or European markets.
