Weekly PS Store Updates: LocoRoco 2 Demo

Bokujou Monogatari: Sugar Mura to Minna no NegaiWill definitely check out the LocoRoco 2 demo, bought the first game but never got to finish it for some reasons. Also don't forget to try out Shin Sangoku Musou: Multi Raid demo (also available online, firmware 5.03 required). Lots of videos in this week's update, especially the Japanese store, which has seven videos. Multi Raid's trailer is totally awesome while Bokujou Monogatari: Sugar Mura to Minna no Negai's (left image) video is disappointingly not full screen and slightly better in quality than the YouTube version I posted. Full list after the jump.

Weekly PS Store Updates: Ghost ‘n Goblins & G-Police

G-PolicePsygnosis’ sci-fi shooter G-Police is the highlights of the Japanese PSN updates for PSP this week, I have deep interest in Psygnosis thanks to the WipEout series, so will probably check out this one in future. On the other hand, Capcom put out what they say will be the first of many PSP and PSone games on the PSN, Ultimate Ghost ‘n Goblins for $19.99. I have the UMD version of this and I remember it was a really tough to play.

Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida or 2 - PSP Wallpaper

Let’s see what SCEJ has for PSP owners in Japan during this Christmas week. Again, some great line-up in the classic PSOne games, I will really download Biohazard 3 Last Escape, Front Mission 2 and the two Harvest Moon games anytime when there is an English version. Sadly, neither Asia or US PSN will have them any soon. There are a bunch of great looking wallpapers (Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida or 2‘s version above) for your PSP this week, I’ve added all of them, including a few from last week after the jump.

I.Q Final, Arc The Lad III In Japan PSN

PlayStation Store

Sony added two games to the Japanese PlayStation Store yesterday. I.Q Final is sequel to the popular puzzle game I.Q (aka Intelligent Qube) where player controls a character who must run around a platform made of cubes, capturing certain cubes as they approach. Japan actually has I.Q. Mania on the UMD in 2006 which contains all the I.Q games released. Arc the Lad III is the third and final Arc the Lad game for the PlayStation, expanding the Japanese PSN with more RPGs. Both games can be played on the PS3 or PSP and support DualShock 3.
