Gomibako, Sony’s Creative PSN Trash Tower, Isn’t Only For Japan

tbx Back at Tokyo Game Show one of the more innovative PlayStation Network games was Gomibako (literally Trash Can). In the game players stacked bits of trash sort of like Tetris with an environmental twist. Each object has an assigned material attribute like biological or metallic waste that affects other things stacked on top of it. Gomibako was a cool concept title, but after seeing it some writers were worried it was too out there for an international release.


Here’s some good news, Gomibako will be released in English! At the Asia Game Show a poster for Gomibako, now known as Trash Box, explains and English/Chinese version is in development. Since Sony Computer Entertainment Asia will release the game in English it’s easy to imagine Sony Computer Entertainment America doing the same thing. However, there have been a few times when SCEA totally skipped over releasing a localized PSN game. Dark Mist comes to mind, but I doubt Gomibako will fall into the leftover pile in North America.
