Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone! I'd like to present to you LA-MULANA PORTABLE (Working Title)!

Japanese retro action game masterpiece, "LA-MULANA," will be released on PlayStation Vita with new features! This game has it all, with well drawn pixel art, interesting puzzles to solve, and hard action. We really want all LA-MULANA fans and retro game fans to enjoy it!

Search for the Treasure of Life, solve the Mystery of Humanity's Origins.

LA-MULANA is an "Archeological Ruins Exploration Action Game" where you investigate the colossal Ruins of "LA-MULANA," said to be the beginning of all civilization, in search of the "Treasure of Life."

Doctor Lemeza is an Archeologist who comes to this Land with only his whip and a research PC. Helped by e-mails from the tech-savvy elder of the tribe that protects the Ruins of La-Mulana, Lemeza must avoid traps, solve puzzles, and reach the very end of the Ruins.

Video: Enroll in Class of Heroes 2 by Gaijinworks, Out Today on PSP

50°
60w ago - Gaijinworks developer Victor Ireland posted up a video announcing that fans can enroll in Class of Heroes 2 today on PSP.

Below are the details, as follows: Dungeon crawlers are one of the oldest types of computer RPGs. The premise is simple: Make a party by "rolling" virtual dice, pick your party's races and classes, give the party some stuff to help them fight and protect them from attacks, then head off into the darkness below for gold and glory.

Well, that's how it was supposed to go. There was usually dying in there, too. A LOT of dying. But there's something enchanting about that mix of danger and exploration that has sustained the genre for well over three decades now.

In Japan, the genre is having something of a resurgence, with well over a dozen dungeon crawlers being released for handhelds and consoles in just the last few years.

Class of Heroes 2 has been one of the titles in the vanguard of this new resurgence. It has put a candy-colored anime shell on an often dark genre that Wizardry helped popularize initially, and also added a more interesting and involving set of intertwining stories.

In doing so, it's made the game more accessible to gamers looking to mix up their RPG selections while still retaining the "Wizardry feel" for the hardcore...

67w 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...

81w ago - D3Publisher Assistant Producer Miki Takahashi has confirmed that Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable officially invades PlayStation Vita today!

Below are the details, to quote: I hope everyone had good holidays with your friends and families, but it's time to kick-start your gaming new year. Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable will be available for $39.99 in North America as a digital PS Vita download when the PSN update goes live later today.

Earth Defense Force 2017 first landed on US soil in 2007. With its addictive and exhilarating bug-squashing gameplay, the Japanese developer Sandlot succeeded in catching the attention of gamers.

Now, thanks to the high performance of PS Vita, we are able to bring the EDF world to the handheld console with many new additions including online co-op and versus modes, new missions, enemies and weapons, and a new playable character in Pale Wing.

The game has a total of 60 missions, including seven new missions. Each mission can be played on five difficulty levels; Easy, Normal, Hard, Hardest, and Inferno. Yes, you're reading this right. "Inferno" is harder than the "hardest"! At first, you might feel "Inferno" is insanely difficult, but don't worry.

The more difficult levels you play, the stronger weapons you'll get. By the time...

90w 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 [Register or Login to view links]' 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!
