PS2 Classics Finally Come To Japan With Contra, Siren, And Dragon Force


ps2classics3The West had a PlayStation 2 classics section for almost a year. Sony finally announced downloadable PS2 games for Japan and the service launches on July 25 with five different games:


Resident Evil: Code Veronica X (1,200 yen / $15)
Siren (1,200 yen / $15)
Contra: Shattered Soldier (1,200 yen / $15)
Kessen (1,500 yen / $19)
and Dragon Force (800 yen / $10)


Dragon Force is the hard to find Sega Ages port, which is a steal for 800 yen. Game prices will range between 800 yen to 1,500 yen.

Dead or Alive 2 Hardcore (1,500 yen), Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (1,200 yen), Dynamite Deka (800 yen), Dark Cloud (1,200 yen), and one of my personal favorites Gunstar Heroes: Treasure Box (800 yen) are all confirmed as downloadable PS2 games.
