Bushido Blade, SaGa Frontier Join Japan’s PS Archives (Update: More Games!)


image Tomorrow (or today depending on your time zone) Square Enix is adding two more games they have no intention of remaking on the PlayStation Store. If you have a Japanese account you can pick up SaGa Frontier and Bushido Blade for 600 yen ($6) a piece. Both games are PS3 and PSP compatible, but I wouldn’t count on Bushido Blade’s two player mode to work wirelessly.

SaGa Frontier wasn’t an epic role playing game like Squaresoft’s other PlayStation era games, but it did have some cool characters that cross in each others stories. In one story arc you play Red who has the uncanny power to transform into the superhero Alkaiser only if all his allies are unconscious. T260G, a robot made from junk, can transform into other machines. And then there is Blue, a wizard who is also a selfish jerk. Ask his twin brother Rouge for help with any of the other characters instead.


Update: Three games that have nothing to do with Square or Enix are also new to Japan’s PlayStation archive’s section. Hudson dug out Weltorv Estleia, Media Factory skipped straight to Culdcept Expansion Plus, and Kagero a precursor to Trapt are also online.


To recap here is a quick list. Each game costs 600 yen ($6).
