For Xenosaga To Return, The Fans Must Speak...And Beg
It's one of the most esteemed and beloved role-playing franchises of the last generation. Want it to come back, die-hard followers?
There are plenty of PS2 classics that are making their way to the downloadable world, and the Xenosaga titles could be among the crowd. However, for that to happen, PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Morgan Haro said the fans are going to have to speak up.
He replied to a fan asking Sony to bring Xenosaga back in the form of digital PS2 classics; here's what Haro said over at the PlayStation Blog. It's encouraging.
"Make your voice heard on the Namco Bandai forums to have the best possible chance to see this through. They’d need to sign off on it, but there are technical considerations as well (like will it work with the PS3 firmware to emulate this PS2 title)."
First there was Xenogears, which was a critical smash hit on the PS1, and then came the spiritual successor in the form of Xenosaga. There were several follow-up efforts, too, all featuring the franchise's really awesome heroine, KOS-MOS. Don't know her? Check her out in a simple Google image search...the fans love her.
