Square Enix owns Taito. Starting this year Square Enix USA is beginning to leverage their investment by releasing Space Invaders Extreme and Arkanoid DS in the summer. These may not be the only Taito games we will see this year. DS Fanboy scouted around Gamefly and discovered Exit and The Legend of Kage 2 in their database. Both of these were released in Japan earlier this year.
While it was short, the Legend of Kage 2 was a sweet 2D action game. We really don’t get enough of these nowadays! If Square Enix is releasing these games in North America I expect them to be budget titles. The price for the Legend of Kage 2 should be way cheaper than the 3,990 yen ($38) Japan had to pay for the sequel that took twenty years to make.
