Imported Japanese PS1 Classics Coming To PSN
There are already a ton of great PS1 classics on the PlayStation Network...but there can always be more.
And because it's an excellent opportunity to provide Western gamers with titles they likely never saw before during the PS1 era, it has been announced that MonkeyPaw Games will be bringing over a bunch of Japanese PS1 games. This according to some new ESRB ratings, which tell us what the first five games on the import list will be: Cho Aniki, a "homoerotic shooter," Gaia Seed, a shooter by Techno Soleil that is "highly valued" in Japan, Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty, a fighter, Magical Drop F, a RPG based on the Magical Drop puzzle series, and Blockids, a Breakout-like title that actually was released in the US. The other four were not. And like most other classics on the PSN, these new Japanese games will be playable on either the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Portable. MonkeyPaw CEO John Greiner says he wants to provide US gamers with experiences "that feed into the fascination with Japanese gaming and culture."
Well, at least someone believes we even have that fascination in this country. 'cough' not Wada 'cough'
