Holy Invasion of Privacy Badman: What Did I Do to Deserve This? and its awesome box art won’t come to a store near you. The pixel art dungeon managing sim will only be available as a PlayStation Network download.
NIS America cites the popularity of the PSN demo as one of the reasons for the decision. Holy Invasion of Privacy Badman will be available on July 16 for $19.99. I guess that makes me one of the few people with a physical copy of Badman then?
Disappointing news for gamers who like physical media, but In the long run I think the decision to go download only is better for NIS America. While Badman is unique, the game has so many RPG and internet humor jokes its hard for it to have mainstream appeal. If Badman failed at retail NIS America might pass on publishing the sequel and other quirky PSP games.
