    maybe you can tweet to get rescued

    So that’s Shiren 3 and 4 on the PSP. I hope they eventually port Shiren 5 too. The game sold poorly on the DS but was pretty good, they should give it another chance.

    • Vampiric

       5 sold fine

      • malek86

        Admittedly I don’t know how much the company expected to sell. But if 4 sold around 100k, while 5 sold 40k… that doesn’t sound too good.

        And don’t forget Shiren 5 was the first self-published game by Chunsoft in a long time. So it was also a riskier endeavor.

        • Vampiric

           remember it came out right as the 3ds did. So thats why

          • malek86

            Came out about three months sooner… I don’t think it had an effect.

            On the other hand, it was out right one week after MH3P. That can’t have been too good.

          • Vampiric

             it had a really bad effect. People start saving when a new system is near

    PSP will never die (in Japan)

    In other news…..what’s a Vita?

    • Nitraion

      A juice brand name….T_T

    • xavier axol

      a handheld that is bearably alive in all regions. with more titles to come and possibilities.

      • Vampiric

         the psp is still kicking

        • xavier axol

          not for long and again, the vita has possibilities while the psp is a thing of the past.

          • cj_iwakura

            There’s more new PSP games on the way than there are Vita games. By a mile. Sony is not helping their own situation one bit.

          • Vampiric

             Sony isnt developing psp games its not up to them

          • Vampiric

             after 7 years, it wont last forever

      -Not knowing Vita

      I wish I could hate you to death.
      But alas, you gave me an excuse to post this picture so I can’t hate you.

    • Tom_Phoenix

      A Vita? I don’t know. Sounds like the name of a skin cream or something similar.

      Hey, can you imagine if someone decided to name like, say, a gaming handheld that way? That would be really stupid, wouldn’t it?

  • Vampiric

    id rather them get busy on 6

  • d19xx

    Never played 3 since it’s on Wii and the PSP version never saw the light of day outside Japan. I hope this one gets localized. 

    • malek86

      Not even the DS version back in 2010 was localized. I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    • there was actually a fan made translation of 3

  • AJ

    I’d love to see more Shiren in English. The first one was my addiction for many years. It still is, in fact.
