260w ago - Atlus U.S.A., Inc. announced that it has secured the North American publishing rights for Hammerin' Hero, an arcade-style, old school, side-scrolling beat 'em up for PSP.
Forget everything your parents told you about violence only being a last resort. In Hammerin' Hero, if it moves, hammer it. Pummel your way through 12 distinct levels, including city streets, an amusement park, a TV studio, a baseball stadium, and more.
Ever wonder what happens if you hammer something over the head in deep space? Underwater? The only way to find out is to pick up a copy of Hammerin' Hero for PSP on March 3. This is one hero you don't want to mess with! (hint: because he has a hammer.)
Hammerin' Hero is scheduled for release on March 3, 2009, with an MSRP of $29.99.
266w ago - I don't know about anyone else, but I've been holding onto two copies of Persona 3 for quite some time now. The original came in this nice box with an art book, and then FES came out and I just couldn't bring myself to give up to original. So there you go.
Will the same thing happen? Atlus says no.
"We are today able to announce that at no point in the future will we announce the release of a "FES" version of Persona 4," said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The very finest, most definitive version of Persona 4 will be the one released on December 9, 2008."
Now if only we could convince them to quit letting places like amazon release awesome pre-order junk, I will be extremely happy. I want my tele-teddy darn it!
