PsOne Idol Game And Post-Apocalyptic Uniform Battling Game Coming Here As PSN Imports

By Spencer . May 13, 2014 . 1:32am

GungHo Online Entertainment America has six more PsOne imports for North America and they picked some unique titles in this batch. Heroine Dream and its sequel are the precursor to the Idolm@ster. Similar to Bandai Namco’s series you manage the girls schedules and there are multiple endings to uncover.

 

Heroine Dream

 

Heroine Dream 2

 

Remember World Uniform: Costume Fes from Spike Chunsoft? You know, the game set in Japan after all of the men were wiped out after a virus and the remaining girls are fighting over different costumes? Tokyo 23-Ku Seifuku Wars has a similar plot, but was made over a decade ago. The PsOne game takes place in post-apocalyptic Tokyo where school uniforms are banned.

 

 

Sarara’s Little Shop, an shop running RPG where you equip adventurers before they head out on quests, and Neo Planet, a game where you terraform the world, are also coming to PlayStation Network. However, all of these games are still in Japanese and aren’t particularly language friendly. The exception is Dragon Beat Legend of Pinball, a pinball game with a fantasy setting.

    Would they be translated into English or just left in Japanese?

    • Paulette

      It’s explained at the end of the post. They are in japanese. For a Sony-related reason, translated imports are not possible.

        I can read… >.>

        .o.

      • SupaPhly

        these games seem like they rely heavily on text
        what would the point of bringing them to the US psn store be?

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          For people who can read it or want to learn but don’t want to buy a japanese system

          • SupaPhly

            but it’s not hard to make a jp account, and you don’t need a japanese system

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            You don’t but you can’t just use an american card to buy things on that account you have to go through middle mans to do things. This just makes it hassle free, no need to switch accounts or buy japanese psn cards online.

          • Brion Valkerion

            but its even easier to use your main account… which is a convenience this provides.

          • Paulette

            You mean the three of them ?

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            There are only 3 people who can read japanesebut live in a english speaking country?

          • Bacon_n_Lettuce

            特別気分なんだ!

            But yeah, I think this is just Sony’s way of trying to make some money off of those who would normally import or buy Japanese PSN cards. I can’t imagine it would be all that lucrative, though.

          • FTM

            lmao. It’s a totally silly thought, but that’s how I feel too with these selections. I mean, you really, really need to know Japanese to play these games— just seems like a horrible investment :P

  • D. Collins

    They should really port games like Waku Waku 7, Astra Super Stars, and the Sega Saturn port of X-men v.s Street Fighter!

    • FX102A

      Ironically my friend was selling a copy of Waku Waku 7 for the Neo Geo just 2 weeks ago. I’d also prefer Marvel vs Street Fighter, if just to listen to the Spiderman and Captain America theme music.

  • Jesse

    I wonder if they would be able to bring over any of the Yarudora visual novels?

  • FX102A

    I’m all for Japanese imports but I do hope we get more games that do not require too much knowledge of the Japanese language to play.

    Battle Garrega and Hyper Duel from the Sega Saturn anyone?

    I think it’s great to release unique titles like these, but they are very story heavy and require a good understanding of the language. Overall, it seems like a silly idea unless you consider yourself advanced.

    A virus wipes out all the men on the planet and all the ladies are fighting over uniforms…. Allow me to back away slowly then break out into a dashing run.
