Gaijinworks is getting ready to release a new PSP game in 2015. Yes, you read that right! After releasing an excellent physical version for Class of Heroes 2 on PSP (and a highly limited physical edition for Class of Heroes 2G on PS3), they’re back at it with a physical release for Summon Night 5 on PSP!
After launching Class of Heroes 2 on PSP and Class of Heroes 2G on PS3 as physical and digital releases, MonkeyPaw Games and GAIJINWORKS are back for another round of dungeon crawling with Class of Heroes 3 for the PSP! That’s right, there is a chance that a PSP game will be released in 2015!
I had a chance to do a small Q&A with the folks over at Gaijinworks/Monkey Paw Games in regards to the Kickstarter for a Collector’s Edition for Class of Heroes 2, as well as other various topics. I took some questions from the backers over at the Kickstarter page, so click the link to read the answers:
Vic Ireland from Gaijinworks, and MonkeyPaw Games have decided to join forces, and bring us a great opportunity to show our support for the idea of bringing “Japan-only” RPGs to this side of the pond. MonkeyPaw Games has been hard at work securing the rights to several titles for the PSX that, up until recently, had been sentenced to a “import from Japan” fate. And Vic Ireland has been doing this for yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaars. Wait, what? You don’t know who Vic Ireland is? For shame!
For those of us that were fortunate enough to own a PSOne many, many years ago, Vic Ireland’s Working Designs was a godsend. Several games that had been released on the Sega CD (an attachment that allowed the Genesis to play CD based games), as well as others that had been hit with the dreaded “Japan-only” stick, were brought to the PSOne by Working Designs. And they did so in style.
