Data East Arcade Classics Coming To PlayStation Network?

By Spencer . May 31, 2010 . 2:52pm

imagePlayStation Network may be getting its own collection of digitally distributed Data East games. Burnin’ Rubber aka Bump ‘n Jump, Express Raider, and Lock ‘n’ Chase are PlayStation 3 and PSP titles, according to the ESRB.

 

The ESRB also lists G1M2 as the “publisher” for the above titles, which makes PlayStation Network ports a likely scenario. G1M2 developed Data East Arcade Classics for Majesco. Burnin’ Rubber, Express Raider, and Lock ‘n’ Chase are also in the Wii compilation.

 

If those three games are coming Magical Drop and Burgertime can’t be far behind.

 

Thanks for the tip Joshua!

    That’s interesting, there’s already a decent chunk of ESRB rated old games that haven’t hit the U.S. yet, like a bunch of Neo-Geo titles. Hudson at one point said they were bringing the Turbografx games stateside too, but nothing’s happened.

    I wonder what they’re all waiting for? As much as I’d like to play them, I don’t think some old console/arcade games would make much for an E3 announcement.

      Yeah, we were the ones that asked Hudson directly about that actually! It’s something that I plan to ask them about again, but the TG-16 titles, even in Japan, are kinda sparse.
