Rising Star games on sale ⊟

As part of a 10th anniversary celebration, publisher Rising Star Games has put all of its downloadable games on sale, across both North America and Europe. Here’s what that means for handhelds in North America: a series of 3DS deals.

  • Girls’ Fashion Shoot – $7.98
  • Beyblade: Evolution – $9.98
  • Jewel Master: Cradle of Rome 2 – $3.74
  • Jewel Master: Cradle of Egypt 2 – $3.74
  • Super Black Bass 3D – $3.74

Girls’ Fashion Shoot looks pretty fun! I like the idea of being both model and magazine editor.

Anyway, stuff’s more interesting in Europe, where RSG has been established for longer. Virtue’s Last Reward, Sorcery Saga, Half-Minute Hero, Bit.Trip Saga… and if you have a PS3, don’t miss out on that super cheap Deadly Premonition in either region!

250 PSP games available to Japanese PS Plus members this year ⊟
[Update: This move is actually not as exciting as we thought, according to a note that was overlooked in initial English reports. You’ll be required to own a PSP and the games on UMD in order to access them. Thanks to TimmiT for pointing that out!]
In the West, PlayStation Plus gets you access to a dozen or so PS3 and Vita games, recent and classic, with the selection rotating every month. This is a great deal! But in Japan, you will also get about 250 PSP games, Sony announced at its pre-TGS press conference this week.
D-d-dang.
The games come from the “UMD Passport” program, which offered digital PSP games on Vita to owners of the UMD versions. As a “first step,” Persona 3 Portable and Trails in the Sky will be released for free, along with about 50 other games. An HD rental of a Berserk anime movie is also part of the deal. Via Gamespot.

Class of Heroes 2G’s dual-screen play ⊟

It’s not often I post videos about the console versions of handheld games, but this is a neat extra added to the western PS3 release of Class of Heroes 2G.

If you pair your PSP or Vita with the PS3, you can use the handheld as a second screen to display maps, stats, and monster info.

This stuff is really neat and doesn’t happen often enough! I guess given the massive disparity between PS3 and Vita ownership in the US, there’s not often enough incentive to work on features like that. But neat.

Final Fantasy Type-0 fan translation out ⊟

We’re unlikely to see an announcement at E3 about the PSP game Final Fantasy Type-0, but who cares? A team of fan translators (SkyBlade and Doomtrain) have released a fan translation patch! It’s been in progress since the beginning of last year.

Between this and Retro Game Challenge 2, it seems like a time of translation miracles has begun. Thank you all!

Xseed and Natsume keep making E3 weirder ⊟

Seeing two new Harvest Moon 3DS games from different publishers — Story of Seasons from Xseed, and Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley from Natsume — at this year’s E3 is already odd, but the companies had more announcements today that will make the show even more interesting for handheld fans.

Who expected Natsume to announce A-Train: City Simulator for North American release? Yes, that’s exactly what it sounds like, a city and transportation simulator for the 3DS. It’s developed by Artdink, makers of Aquanaut’s Holiday and a number of titles that rarely make it to the West.

Also odd: Xseed announced its localizing another PSP RPG (Natsume is bringing its own PSP RPG to PSN, Kemco’s End of Serenity). It intends to release Brandish: The Dark Revenant, a remake of Falcom’s more-than-20-year-old action RPG, on PSN some time in 2014. The publisher will also put out Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit, that rhythm cooking game for PS Vita, as a digital release this winter.

End of Serenity on PSN this summer, Grinsia on 3DS May 8  ⊟

Yeah, a new PSP game! Natsume, following the success of Mystic Chronicles, picked up another Kemco RPG for release on PSN this summer.

Throughout history, mysterious objects known as “Atomigems” have existed all over the world. The people of the world have used them for many things, from simple family heirlooms to even objects of worship. However, recently, a gang known as the Underworld has been going around collecting any and all Atomigems they can find. What exactly is their aim?

Meanwhile on 3DS, Nicalis will publish an updated version of Grinsia on 3DS May 8. When did Kemco’s mobile RPGs become such a hot property?

Bust a Move 4 coming to PSN ⊟

Yeahhhh, gonna be able to download Bust a Move 4 on my Vita sometime this spring! And my PS3 and PSP should I decide to. Natsume is publishing the game as a PSOne Classic in North America.

This version of the Puzzle Bobble/Bust a Move series adds pulley levels, in which two sets of bubbles are attached to one another via ropes and pulleys, so you have to keep them balanced while breaking them.

This was a great game… on the Game Boy Color, where I played it, so I can only imagine the PS version is better. It’s got to be better as a handheld Puzzle Bobble than Bust a Move Universe.

Final Fantasy games on sale on PSN ⊟
Finally, the PS1 Final Fantasy games on PlayStation Network (playable on PS Vita, PSP, and presumably) are available for what you might have thought they cost anyway. As part of a sale starting tomorrow in North America, you can download Final Fantasy V, IX, and Origins for $5.99 each, or $5.39 on Plus.
Tons of other portable-friendly FFs are also available, including both Dissidias, whose names I’m not going to type out in full because no, the Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection, and the remade Final Fantasy III. Final Fantasy Tactics is a crazy five bucks! It’s a good time to fill up your Final Fantasy collection!

What is a Danganronpa ⊟

Danganronpa is one of those names I’ve heard a lot, usually in a positive light, but I never bothered to look into it much. So when NISA released a bunch of screenshots of the PSP game, I thought maybe they’d help me understand what it’s about.

Uh…

Fang is kind of a jerk

Did anyone shell out the $30 to cop Unchained Blades on eShop a few weeks ago? I hope this digital-only experiment (for what was a retail game in Japan) worked out for Xseed.

Megpoid the Music #

…is a music game coming out for PSP in Japan that is somehow not a Hatsune Miku game. It’s pretty close, though, based on a different Vocaloid synthesizer program published by the wonderfully named INTERNET Co. Ltd.

This comes out March 28 for … ¥9,429??? That’s like $105!
