Yay for our Euro friends. MonkeyPaw Games will launch a PlayStation Import section on the PlayStation Store for Europe today. Like us here in the US, you'll now have access to direct-from-Japan PS One imports and classics.
It all kicks off today with some really good offerings: Arc the Lad, Cho Aniki and Arcade Hits: Sonic Wings Special. A good RPG, a homoerotic shooter, and some bullet hell action. Nice. And my favorite part of MonkeyPaw's offerings: they're cheap. These titles are priced at EU 4.99 each.
“Why is it that so many classic Japanese titles haven’t seen distribution outside of Japan? MonkeyPaw’s mission is to share these forgotten gems with gamers around the globe. We’re excited to offer our digital download import and classic titles to the European PlayStation Store. It’s just a taste of what’s to come,” said John Greiner, president and CEO of MonkeyPaw Games, Inc.
