As today is Tuesday, we're in the middle of a PS Store update. Although a time is never specified for the updates, we can expect that sometime before midnight PST tonight that a handful of new games will be available on PSN. One such game is Fire Pro Wrestling Returns. It's quite exciting to see the PS2 Classics section continuing to expand in the face of HD remakes and collections. The wrestling game was initially developed by Chunsoft and published in North America by Agetec. What distinguishes the game from its competition is that it makes use of a pixelated art style which wasn't very common for fighters when it released. It also boasts a fantastic character creator instead of focusing on known fighters. Just last week, Agetec's RPG Maker 3 was the new Classic on the block. With yet another Agetec game now available it seems that the publisher may have taken over the PS2 Classics section for a while. Fire Pro Wrestling Returns costs PS3 players $10, which is the standard rate for PS2 digital releases. What game would you like to see on PS2 Classics that still hasn't shown up?
Leah posted a article in Industry NewsIn an attempt to appeal towards the e-book audience, Chunsoft (and their North American publisher, Agetec) has decided to start bringing "sound novel" games to the American market. The first in this series of sound novels to make an appearance on both iOS and Android devices is Super Famicom release Kamaitachi no Yoru, or The Night of Kamaitachi. This will be the first time the Chunsoft title sees a North American localization. The Night of Kamaitachi is a murder mystery that takes place in a ski lodge. The sound novel is one of many that set the basis for visual novel-style games, where one makes decisions that will lead you to different endings. However, rather than emphasizing the characters, which are mere silhouettes, The Night of Kamaitachi instead focuses on its music and writing (hence it being a "sound novel"). It'll be pretty interesting to see what future sound/visual novels Chunsoft and Agetec will be bringing to us. What are your thoughts on this attempt to bring sound/visual novels to the e-book audience?
