To quote: "This has been a tough week for lots of you, coming to my blog everyday to see that no new information was available about the release of VHBL.

Blame Sony and their "275 out of 900 PSP games available for your vita" scheme for this, not us. Part of the waiting time was to see if Sony would add this game to the US store at some point. It is obviously compatible since it is available in other continents, so my guess is that this is a marketing or a legal decision.
