Susan Panico a member from the Playstation Blog just stated that starting tomorrow, and part of an Only on PSN promotion, there will be PS2 games released on the Playstation Network. But these aren’t slated as HD remakes, so maybe we’ll have finally PS2 Classics on the store!
Which games again?
The titles coming to the store as part of this deal are some little known PS2 exclusive games, God Hand, a studio Clover production (Okami etc.) Maximus Ghosts to Glory, an action adventure title from Capcom, GrimGrimoire, a side scrolling RPG by NIS developed by Vanillaware, including their more popular (and beautiful) Odin Sphere, and Ring of Red, a Konami game set in an alternate universe where Japan never surrendered in WW2, and the Soviet Union split Japan into Northern Communist Japan and Southern Capitalist Japan, while they’re both supplied with Mechwarriors from Germany… Hmm.
Those games certainly are interesting, and they should be great games to play through for the first time. Especially God Hand, it has a legendary cult following, it’ll be great to get in on the action. It seems though in everything but name these are PS2 classics! No official word on the pricing of these beauties, be 9.99 would be a nice price right?
