All right, we've got two new games from two different companies. First up is Koei's Musou Orochi: Maou Sairin
(Warriors Orochi 2
which is probably one of those "new" titles Koei has been talking about recently
. It's a port of the PS2 game which will be out later this month in North America. The PSP port is scheduled for Japan this November with new characters and ad hoc multiplayer.
The second title is Capcom's Sengoku Basara: Battle Heroes
. The series has
done poorly outside Asia, so we're not banking on this one getting localized. Battle Heroes
has 2-on-2 battles and 4-player ad hoc. Battle Heroes
is scheduled for Spring 2009 in Japan.
Are you sensing a pattern in Japanese PSP development? Notice how all games now seem to be touting the multiplayer co-op ad hoc? Thanks to Monster Hunter
, developers have finally found a cash cow in the PSP.
