Natsume Are Still Supporting The PSP With Games Like End of Serenity

By Ishaan . April 24, 2014 . 3:00pm

Among the handful of publishers still supporting the PSP are Natsume. This morning, Natsume announced that they’re bringing End of Serenity, a game developed by Kemco, to the PlayStation Network for PSP.

 

End of Serenity is about a mysterious objects called “Atomigems,” which have existed all over the world throughout history. They’ve been everything from simple family heirlooms to objects of worship; however, of late, a gang called “the Underworld” has been tracking these objects down.

 

End of Serenity will include over 120 skills that can be used both in and out of battle. You’ll also be able to summon large beasts during battle to damage enemies.

 

Kemco, as you might recall, were behind another game that Natsume brought to PSN, titled Mystic Chronicles. It looks like the game did well enough for Natsume, which is partly why End of Serenity is being brought over.

    You wrote “End of Eternity” once in the article. Which is Resonance of Fate. :P

  • JonathanisPrimus

    This game is on iOS/Android under the title of End of Aspiration. Natsume has said that they’re giving it a new localization.

  • nonscpo

    Another PSP game that well never play…unless your into emulators.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      What?

      • nonscpo

        Sorry I meant ROM’s

        • JustThisOne

          No, you said it right the first time. The confusing part is what you mean by that.

          • Death Metal

            I think he/she means that he/she doesn’t have a PSP and doesn’t intend to buy one, hence “unless your into emulators”.

            I think he/she is missing the dash button in his/her keyboard, also.

        • JonathanisPrimus

          What?

    • doubleO7

      Who are you referring to? Sure, you might have to jump through a few hoops, but technically anyone worldwide can make a US PSN account and buy this if they really wanted to.

    • God

      Why use an emulator when you can have the full experience by jailbreaking your PSP?

  • 3PointDecoupage

    Ill probably get it if its on vita too.

  • otakumike

    looks…beyond generic. Natsume are good with harvest moon games and rune factory but…that’s about it sadly.

    • CDM

      But Natsume didn’t make this, Kemco did, who make a ton of jRPGs for mobile. Natsume’s just publishing it in english.

      • otakumike

        Then, Natsume publishes generic rpgs? :p

    • Derek E Nay

      Sometimes I want to play a generic game. This looks like something I would want to at least try.

    • God

      In a world where originality is impossible, what’s wrong about a game being generic?

      • otakumike

        Well if god says it…

        • God

          My will be done…

    • Lumi

      That’s Kemco RPGs to you.

    • Nana

      Less generic than the mobile games usually hyped on here, so definitely an improvement.

    • Hector Velar

      I actually been looking for this type of RPG, you know just like final fantasy 6, nothing wrong with them as long as it has good story like, music and well developed characters, I’m as happy as I could be.

  • GH56734

    I wish Gaijinworks would bring that PSP RPG of theirs already, be it Tengai Makyou IV or something else (not Oreshika or Type-0 sadly).
    Where are the days of Natsume localizing higher-profile RPGs like Chulip and Lufia?

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Chulip is high-profile?

      Lufia is dead, and frankly, there’s not a whole lot on the market that Natsume can go after. They’ve always gone for family friendly Japanese games, and unless you’re targeting kids exclusively, there’s just not much being made that they can get their hands on.

      • GH56734

        HighER profile, I said.
        At least they are not ports of mobile games. They were made by well established publishers and developers (Love-de-Lic crew, developing since 1996 with lots of games, most recently Tingle DS and Captain Rainbow).
        And at the time they picked Lufia DS, it was owned by Square Enix: not an “easy” localization by any means but they made the effort. I wish they would go out of their way and be more ambitious more often like they used to be in the past (they were among the few publishers rivaling Atlus and Working Designs in the SNES days when it comes to exporting lesser lucky properties outside Japan)

  • Renaldi Saputra

    if they’re still supporting PSP, then they should also support medarot series

    • JonathanisPrimus

      They’ve already said that the decision to not localize the Medarot games wasn’t theirs to make.

  • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

    It looks cute, but also a bit basic.

  • Lester Rat

    Well, Kemco seems to be mass producing RPGs. Their games are nothing special, but not bad. I will probably end getting this one someday.

  • Death Metal

    I am pissed that they stopped supporting the SNES already.

  • Lumi

    Wish someone would bring Kemco Visual Novels over.

  • Roll Caskett

    Look like a game made for the SNES

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    I’d play this, though I would rather have it on N3DS to pass the time between the pokemon games.

  • Lester Paredes

    That’s pretty amazing. Still supporting PSP in the west. I still want to try Mystic Chronicles. This looks like it could be some comfort JRPG goodness.

    • Death Metal

      Wouldn’t you rather prefer it as a game for the Vita with better potential? After all, they make better hardware over time for a good reason.

      • Lester Paredes

        Honestly, no. A good game is a good game regardless of the platform it’s on. Yes, there’s more potential, but it’s reach could always exceed it’s grasp. Just because it was made for the Vita didn’t help Resistance: Burning Skies be a better game than Resistance: Retribution on PSP.

        • Death Metal

          I agree that a good game is a good game regardless of platform. But the Resistance on Vita had the potential to be a better game than the one on PSP, for example. The potential was there.

          Well, I am saying that because I like the cutting edge stuff, the better graphics, the better hardware. At worst, a good game on the PSP is still the same good game on the Vita, with enhanced graphics and/or controls, probably.

  • Setsu Oh

    are ALL psp games playable on vita??

    • TheExile285

      No because ALL PSP games aren’t on the PSN. The majority of PSP games on the PSN are playble on Vita. For an example, the last game Natsume released, Mystic Chronicles, works on Vita.

      • Setsu Oh

        do u know any from psn that doesnt work on vita???

        • TheExile285

          If they don’t show up on Vita’s PSN store, they most likely don’t work.

          I say mostly because there are some that can be downloaded to a PS3 and transferred to Vita.

    • Death Metal

      Let’s say that they would probably be if Vita’s firmware was hacked in a way that would allow PSP games to run. But I reckon they don’t simply run on it just after being ripped; there needs to be some form of conversion to a format that the Vita can run. If converted properly, I would think that all PSP games would be playable probably, yes.

    Its pretty generic, beat it in like 9 hours on my s3
