34w ago - Muteki Corporation Founder, President and CEO Bryan Sawler has announced today via Sony's Blog that Dragon Fantasy Book I will be hitting PS3 and PS Vita tomorrow.
To quote: In August, we announced on PlayStation Blog that we would be releasing Dragon Fantasy Book II for PS Vita and PS3 early next year.
With the awesome response and large demand for the first game on those systems, we knew we had to make it happen. We didn't want to just push a port of what we already had, though - this was our chance to really make this game shine.
Plus, we get to take part in Sony's awesome Spring Fever promotion! Not only are we releasing the game to JRPG-loving fans out there, Sony is helping to ensure people actually find out about it! What does that mean to you? If you're a PlayStation Plus member, it means you get 20% off the game during launch week!
Don't know much about Dragon Fantasy Book I? Start by watching our brief trailer.
So where to begin... Oh, I don't know, how about redrawing almost every single piece of art in the game! Crazy? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely!
We decided to approach this in the style of a SNES special edition of a previously released NES game. We wanted to take the art we had, and...
38w ago - Localization Editor and QA Tester Adam Fitch has announced today that Carnage Heart EXA will be hitting both PSP and PlayStation Vita tomorrow alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Natsume may be best known for publishing the Harvest Moon and Reel Fishing series, but we're always on the lookout for novel and innovative titles for our growing audience.
We plan for 2013 to be a banner year for unique titles, and Carnage Heart EXA, out tomorrow for $29.99, is the first of several PSP titles we'll be bringing to our fans in both North America and Europe.
PlayStation Network lets us bring titles to gamers who are increasingly looking for unique and different types of games. Carnage Heart EXA is just such a game!
Carnage Heart first appeared on PlayStation way back in 1997. Carnage Heart EXA continues the tradition of the franchise with the same style of gameplay, but builds upon it with improved graphics, updated chips, and interface mechanics, and a larger stable of Overkill Engine types.
In addition, this time around players can actually control the OKEs (Overkill Engines)! It's a polished version of the original dream Artdink had, and we're pleased to be working closely with them to bring the game to a worldwide audience....
38w ago - Today Laurent Mercure at Frima Studio has announced alongside a video trailer that Holy Guns! Nun Attack is coming to PS Vita tomorrow.
Below are the details, as follows: We're proud to be bringing the beloved gun-wielding nuns from our hit mobile game Nun Attack to PlayStation Vita. Eons have passed since the power-thirsty Fallen Nun took over the mortal world, spawning evil across the land.
In a world where evil is taking over and prayers are no longer answered, there is only one type of divine intervention left, and it's armed to the teeth!
In this epic tactical action game, intuitive touch-screen controls direct your holy squad through fast-paced combat while they unleash a fury of biblical proportions. Lead Eva the leader, Rosy the slayer, Olga the tank and Mandy the healer to defeat the Fallen Nun and restore balance to the world.
Nun Attack for PS Vita is not a simple port; we've adapted the game to provide a great experience on the handheld. We've upgraded the graphics a notch, and entirely redesigned the difficulty of the levels since we've removed all of the micro-transaction mechanics.
41w ago - Atlus Editor Nich Maragos has announced that Persona 2: Eternal Punishment hits PSN tomorrow.
Below are the details, to quote: If you're a die-hard Persona fan, there's a good chance you have every game in the series- Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, Persona 3 Portable, and the recent Persona 4 Golden- playable on PS Vita... except one. Persona 2 was split into two games - Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment - the former of which came out on PSP in 2011 and the latter having had no American release.
There's good news and bad news about that. The bad news is that unusual circumstances have prevented us from localizing Eternal Punishment PSP the way we'd have liked to, but the good news is that you can still find out how the story of Tatsuya...
43w ago - Sony Director of Emerging Platforms Chris Mahoney announced today that Chimpact swings to PlayStation Mobile tomorrow!
Below are the details, as follows: Monkeys are fun. They jump around, swing on vines, love high places, and occasionally fling poo at people that they don't like.
Today we are pleased to announced that you can have just as much fun as monkeys do (minus the poo) with the release of Yippie! Entertainment's Chimpact on PlayStation Mobile.
