4w ago - Today NIS America's Chris King shared a video confirming that Black Rock Shooter The Game comes to PSP on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: My name is Chris King; I recently joined the awesome team here at NISA.
I'm here today to talk about Black Rock Shooter The Game, which hits PSP via PSN next Tuesday for $19.99. Shall we get started? Splendid!
Let me give you a quick rundown of the history of Black Rock Shooter. It all began as a simple illustration by renowned artist Ryohei "Huke" Fuke.
The mysterious yet appealing design of the character inspired the creation of a Black Rock Shooter song (voiced by the ever popular Hatsune Miku), an original video animation, and even an eight-episode anime series. Starting off as a single character design, it has now evolved into an explosive Japanese RPG - not bad!
Alright, let's talk story. The year is 2032 AD, and Earth has been ruthlessly assaulted by alien forces. Nineteen years of nonstop battle now threatens the very existence of humanity. The last hope for human survival is Black Rock Shooter (BRS), a heroine created solely to save planet Earth - she is the ultimate battle android.
But when she is awakened to end the battle once and for all, there are only twelve human beings left...
9w 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....
26w ago - Halfbrick's Phil Larsen has announced alongside a video trailer that Jetpack Joyride flies to PSP, PS Vita and PlayStation 3 today.
Below are the details, to quote: Hi there! Alexey Menshikov of Beatshapers and I are happy that one of the biggest names in mobile gaming - Jetpack Joyride - is coming to PSN in North America this week for $3.99.
With over 35 million downloads around the world so far, millions more can now suit up as Barry Steakfries and join in the high-flying phenomenon.

Along the way, you must avoid lasers, missiles and electro zappers, all the while grabbing coins and trying out even more ridiculous vehicles - Lil' Stomper, Profit Bird and the robot dragon himself, Mr. Cuddles!
The game features a robust Stash system, where everyone can upgrade their gear, change the...
28w ago - Aksys Localization Editor Mike Engler has posted up a video today just in time for the launch of Ragnarok Tactics which is playable on PSP and PS Vita.
To quote: Greetings, and welcome to my first tentative steps into the world of PSN blogging! My name is Mike Engler and I will be your guide into the weird and wondrous world of Aksys Games' upcoming PSP title, Ragnarok Tactics. The game is out on PSP today at retail for $29.99, and on PlayStation Network for $24.99.
As one of the text magicians responsible for the game's translation (along with translator Asuka Yamataki and copy editor Karen McOscar), it was decided via a flurry of pointed fingers that I be the one to give you an overview of what the game is all about.
So, what is Ragnarok Tactics? The quick and dirty description is that it is a fairly involved strategy role-playing game that takes place within the Ragnarok Online universe, complete with its familiar monsters and job classes.
Add to that already appealing formula a story with no less than five unique endings and a hero(ine) who is a doer of deeds rather than a speaker of words, and you have the recipe for an incredible portable gaming experience!
