136w ago - Today Sony Assistant Producer Charles Hefele has announced that The Simpsons: Arcade Game will be hitting PSN tomorrow.

To quote: Speaking as a lifelong [Register or Login to view links] fan, I'm just as excited for this game to come out as everyone else – the wait to finally see this game make its way to home consoles seemed endless!

We worked closely with Gracie Films and Fox to time the release of the game with the 500th episode of The Simpsons so that fans of the show could experience the classic game during an important milestone for the series.

It's been a great collaborative effort with [Register or Login to view links] to find a balance between preserving the authenticity of the original arcade game and making just enough tweaks to adapt it for PS3.

The original game is already great, so we decided we would focus primarily on making it as faithful a port as possible while adding various gameplay modes and bonus content.

We also listened to fans' suggestions from our previous arcade conversions, particularly in respect including more challenging ways to play these classic arcade games when you remove the quarter-crunching element. To that end, we've included several different gameplay modes in The Simpsons Arcade, so...

153w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has unveiled the video trailer today for Arcade Hits: Shienryu which is hitting PlayStation Network.

To quote: Well, the Import Section is now up and running. We hope you've had a taste and are looking for more Japanese fun.

The game happens to be one of our office favorites so I can tell you that you'll be satisfied and rewarded by such shooting splendor.

Arcade Hits: Shienryu is the kind of shooter that exemplified the class of firepower that came out of the great shoot'em-up era in Japan.

If your eyes could bleed they would after an intense hour with Shienryu. Sure, there were bigger hits in the era, but Shienryu is a standout for its outstanding attention to detail and silky-smooth controls.

Allow yourself to immerse in the cockpit of your tactical fighter and watch the full trajectory of shrapnel after you blast it into a thousand pieces.





MonkeyPaw will continue to bring you closer to your Japanese gaming roots. We want to deliver all those lost classics...
 

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection for PS3 Hits PSN Tomorrow

300°
159w ago - Today Creative Director Ed Boon at NetherRealm Studios has confirmed that Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection for PS3 will be hitting fans tomorrow on PSN.

To quote: About 20 years ago, Midway was at the cutting edge of arcade game development using a unique method of creating very realistic images. By digitizing live actors, shot in front of a green screen, a number of games were developed that had a photorealistic look not found in any other games.

Games like Narc, Smash TV, NBA Jam and Terminator 2: Arcade all used this technology. This approach was applied to a number of game categories including sports, gun games, and shooters. One genre, however, had not yet been attempted - the fighting game.

In 1991, a small team of four decided to try making a fighting game using digitized graphics. The goal was to make something bold, shocking, and as realistic looking as possible. The game would eventually become Mortal Kombat, the first in a series that have sold over 30 million games.

Mortal Kombat was the "bad boy" of fighting games. It unapologetically depicted blood and had a much more hard-edge presentation than its tamer competition. Mortal Kombat's bold presentation wasn't without its controversy, but that only fueled the game's unstoppable popularity. In addition, Mortal...
