Capcom Continues To Support The PS2 In 2009

The PlayStation 2 will live on in 2009 and beyond, thanks in part to Capcom. This fiscal year (i.e. April 2009 – April 2010) Capcom will ship three PS2 games. Down from last year, but more than other Japanese publishers like Square Enix and Sony Computer Entertainment Japan.

 

Capcom forecasts 200,000 copies of the three PS2 games to be sold worldwide. These games might not all be new releases. Budget reprints of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories are expected to be released in Japan at the end of this month.

 

That still leaves one game up in the air to guess about. A reprint of Fate/Unlimited Codes is a pragmatic pick. A domestic release of Sengoku Basara X is a more tantalizing one.

  • Ryu Kazama

    Wouldn’t mind an English Basara X but with fixed sound. Otherwise forget it.

  • Hero of Legend

    They should actually localize Basara 2 Heroes for Wii for a budget price while also adding 16:9.

  • Vrakanox

    Doesn’t matter to me I already have the Japanese version. Would probably buy it again though.
