We’d like to thank everyone for their strong support of our releases on the PlayStation®Network Classic Import Store. Cho Aniki and GaiaSeed have been flying off the proverbial shelf. We hope the content exceeded expectation and that you’re looking for more great import games from Japan.
MonkeyPaw would like to announce two new games coming to the store this Tuesday, October 5th. Puzzle fanatics will be pleased to play a classic jewel that never made it to America, Magical Drop F. Many know the original and may have played a few sequels, but Magical Drop F is considered the best in the series. The game features a RPG mode as well as added layers of depth and complexity. Special items give the player a more strategic challenge and lend intensity to the already frenetic gameplay.
Our other release this week will be Arcade Hits: Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty. Known as Suiko Enbu in Japan, we’ve used the Arcade release name to keep it simple, but make no mistake, this is the original Japanese version. Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty is a classic fighter from the era of when beat’em-ups ruled the consoles. There was a lot of competition but this one somehow slipped through the cracks, mainly because a lack of marketing. It had progressive and pioneering elements that many future fighters mimicked. And in some aspects, it exceeded what the legendary games of the fighter class established.
As the list of wanted titles for the Import Store increases, we’ll double our dedication to getting you those hidden classics. It is never easy to license titles from Japan but with a little luck, we’ll be able to move publishers who would otherwise not realize that there is a strong and vibrant market for their seemingly lost legacies. Keep the suggestions coming.
