More MonkeyPaw Leaks Reveal GaiaSeed And Cho Aniki For PS3

imageMonkeyPaw Games is bringing games other than Magical Drop F outside of Japan. Since the ESRB leaked Cho Aniki and GaiaSeed, two horizontal shooters, I guess we can mention them ahead of time.


While the ESRB lists Cho Aniki as “Cho Aniki” it’s not the original game. MonkeyPaw picked up the photorealistic Cho Aniki game, Cho Aniki: Kyukyoku Muteki Ginga Saikyou Otoko, for PsOne. Aside being an eBay commodity GaiaSeed is shooter developed by Techno Soleil and it looks like this.



News to us is Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty also known as Dark Legend when it was released for Sega Saturn. The Data East developed fighting game is heading to a PlayStation 3 near you, thanks to MonkeyPaw Games.

  • Ummmm…wow. I think I officially love these guys if they’re bringing these games to the States. Especially Cho Aniki, as I’ve read all sorts of articles on how odd and homoerotic the game supposedly is, and now, I get to experience it in all its, uh…I am not sure “glory” would be the right word…

    I am a tiny bit impressed.

    • I’m more than a “tiny bit” impressed! Man, these guys are great, if they pull this off well. Because, they’re choosing the most risky games, and it is probably because they can’t get the best licenses yet, but soon enough we’ll be getting Tengai Makyou, Ys IV(s) and V, Princess Maker, Soukyuugurentai, Radiant Silvergun, Nikujin, and hell, how about Policenauts!

      Now, I’m being really optimistic, and hopeful, but whatever! Even if they don’t do all of that, they’ll still do great things, chances are anyway.

      Speaking of “optimistic”, they need to have a fortune teller downloadable game, called OptiMystic and it only gives you good fortunes. Or better yet, it is a platformer, about the OptiMystic runner away from all of the people who’s fortunes were mis-told. They want their money back but you just spent it! Luckily enough you spent it all on an awesome, moddable shotgun and scythe duo.

      And since no one will make this game, and I’m learning how to program, I think this might just be a good idea!

        Policenauts would have been a massive excitement for me if I didn’t already have it for the Playstation and added the english patch, though I’d likely still support it.

        I’d definitely be interesting in stuff like Growlanser being translated and other RPGs, but they don’t seem to be doing any games that require massive translations.

        • I wish the Saturn version was translated… :

  • nyobzoo

    well I give monkey paw props for bringing over more East Data games

  • Code

    A company bringing over more shmups? You got my support!

  • Release them all on one retail disc and I’m game.

    • Unfortunately, with how niche these titles are, I think you would probably be the only one. These really only have a chance as digital downloads, really.
