A teaser countdown crept in the slideshow on the SCEJ page with the words “orz”. If you click on the “Z” it turns into a 2 (orz or two?) and a slime crawls on the bottom of the screen (pictured). The slime looks just like the slime from Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida, which could mean a sequel is in development. The official Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida page also has a slime crawl along the screen while the page loads, which may add a little credibility to the hypothesis.
Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida is one of my favorite PSP games so I hope this is true. While I was at CES I showed it to many people and even bothered Sony Computer Entertainment America about localizing it. That might not happen, but the gameplay is import friendly. Try it and see for yourself. If you dig the monster mining wait until August to purchase it when Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida becomes a budget PSP the Best game.
