A Host of Original Japanese-market Titles Make Their Way Westward via PlayStation Network Imports
Buena Park, Calif., (December 4, 2012) – GungHo Online Entertainment America, a multiplatform publisher for the online gaming community, today announced it has released six classic PlayStation® titles on the PS One Classics imports section of the PlayStation®Store, which are now available for download, each at a price of $5.99. Western players can now grab these previously rare titles in their original, unaltered Japanese form by visiting the import section of the PlayStation Store. The titles include:
MAKERUNA MAKENDO 2 – A quirky, high-energy fighting game which includes magic attacks on top of the usual stable of special and melee attacks. Players can use magic to increase their HP, increase attack strength and lower enemy defense powers in order to take down their opponents.
ART CAMION SUGOROKUDEN – Presented in a board game-style where dice rolls determine how far trucks move, players can explore Japan aboard a customizable ‘art truck’ and unlock upgrades with which to decorate their vehicles as they complete deliveries.
FINGER★FLASHING – As a young witch named Poi begins her final witchcraft exam, she is suddenly attacked by monsters. Utilizing a familiar rock, paper scissors-style balanced magic combat system, players must successfully form multiple combos to keep the hordes of incoming monsters at bay.
LUP★SALAD – Classic puzzle-style gameplay is given a twist in this creative puzzle title where players control Salad, a character who is dropped onto the traditional puzzle board and must move each puzzle piece herself. Players must be careful when matching up tiles on the game board though; if they complete one pattern while blocks remain above Salad, she will be crushed and the game will end.
ZANAC×ZANAC – A definitive arcade-style top-down scrolling sci-fi game, ZANACxZANAC packages the classic 8-bit ship-based shooter ZANAC with its sequel, ZANAC NEO. The Auto Level Control system automatically adjusts the game difficulty to match player skill, so 8- and 16-bit sci-fi shooter veterans and newbies alike can enjoy the chaos and fun of blasting everything in space to bits with a variety of weapons.
VEHICLE CAVALIER – A fast-paced vehicle action game that gives players the ability to customize their armaments. Weapons, boosters and special defensive items that cancel out enemy attacks can be mixed and matched to allow players to strategize their vehicle load outs.
A fantastic and nostalgic mix of different genres for both core gamers and Japanese gaming fans alike, these titles have been added to the PlayStation Store imports section and are now available for download.
