Welcome to another week of gaming news, be it light, and here we are with another podcast for you! The much anticipated Move title Sorcery is out this week, how many of you will be picking it up? Let us know in the comments below.
We also discuss a bit more about Diablo (spoiler free) for those who are playing that.
According to Joystiq, this Summer, the States (well, North America in general) will be getting Tomba! on PSN as a PSOne Classic download. A European release will follow down the line. Here’s an excerpt about the licensing and why it is finally coming stateside, via MonkeyPaw CEO, John Greiner :
Sony and MonkeyPaw have a good working relationship. I think they appreciate the titles we’ve brought to the Store. And they value the support we give the games. Having a plethora of Japanese content is a distinct advantage PlayStation has over Xbox. But the games still need to be brought Stateside. So our model helps Sony spread their Japanese edge and we help Japanese developers get their titles to a wider audience. Hence, Sony is willing to work with us on titles that may not have otherwise been licensed out. Support is key.
As for Tomba 2, Greiner has stated that they will need to sell enough downloads of the first title to be able to extend their publishing license to the sequel. This was one of my favorite titles, so I will likely have to pick it up when I get the chance.
