Next Parasite Eve To Hit High-Definition Consoles?
For whatever reason, Parasite Eve has been in the news a lot lately, and it's not entirely because The 3rd Birthday is headed to the PSP soon.
Yesterday, we learned that the first two titles might end up on the PSN (which would be cool), and now, it appears that a high-definition PE installment might be in the works. This from a recent Tweet from Square-Enix executive Tetsuya Nomura, who says fans might not have to wait another decade for a new Parasite Eve. The translation is roughly- "In the case of a sequel can be made, the next one will be a HD version." The source also says that director Hajime Tabata mentioned the team had prepared a multiplayer engine for The 3rd Birthday, but Tabata insisted the game be exclusive to the PSP. Well, if they didn't entirely scrap that engine, perhaps they can use it for a new PS3/360 adventure, which would be a pretty big deal. Well, it'd be a big deal for all those who remember the PE phenomenon from the original PlayStation days; the first Parasite Eve really was a great, even somewhat unique, game. Totally one of my favorites.
And by the way, if you missed out, type in "Aya Brea" in Google to see how big she was back in the day. ...can't believe I just said "back in the day" for 1998.
