At One Time Taito Dabbled In Survival Horror

image I can’t imagine it went to well since Chaos Break: Episode from Chaos Heat never got a second episode. The title, scheduled for Japan’s PlayStation Archives this week, traps Mituki in a laboratory filled with bio-monsters. Mituki also looks kind of familiar… sort of like a famous Capcom character in another survival horror series. Huh. I wonder where Taito got their inspiration for Chaos Break from. I never played it, but if it has a ridiculous parody of Nemesis I’ll pay 600 yen ($7) to check it out.

Slim pickings for most importers, but as usual Japan is getting more PlayStation Archives while we’re waiting for stuff already rated by the ESRB.

  • I’ve always wondered if those hats had special monster killing powers or something. Eh. They both have tacky taste!

    Wasn’t this released in Europe? Maybe they have a better shot at getting this, whether they’d want it or not!

    While it is true that Japan has been getting a rather decent amount of PS1 classics over time most of them have been budget titles and other crap from companies like Hamster. Even in Japan, I find it quite amazing how many high profile and quality games have yet to appear on the service. Sure Nintendo has holes in the VC lineup, but it sure is nowheres near the size of Sony’s. And I am not even taking Square/Enix titles into account.

    • Very good point. A lot of PS1 games appear to be shoveled on to PSN just for the sake of putting something up. Some quirky titles are getting a second life through it like Dezaemon Plus from Athena and Hamster’s arcade manager.
