Day 8 of Obligatory Ice Level Day! This is a goofy, fake holiday meant to build hype for The Speed Gamers’ Zelda marathon, which starts December 12th! We’re raising money for Mercy Corps, so I hope you all help us out by promoting and donating! Man, our Halloween marathon sure was great, wasn’t it? Of course it was! We played a ton of spooky games and raised a lot of money! And some of that money came from the Sweet Home vs. Parasite Eve donation war. I’m never one to back down from some self-congratulatory nonsense, so today’s ice level is The Zoo, from Parasite Eve!
Square-Enix’s recent entries to the PSone Classics must have been quite a success, Square-Enix continues to pump titles out onto the service. The next title to hit the service from Square-Enix will be the Japanese only 1997 Chocobo Dungeon. Hopefully, Square-Enix will take this as a chance to localize the title. If not, you at least now have easier access to the game.
Square-Enix is also looking into adding the two original Parasite Eve titles to the PSone Classics line. Square-Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura tweeted about it saying “we’re currently looking into it, so please wait a bit more.”
Nomura assured newcomers to the series taht the title won’t feature any direct story ties to the past games. So if plans fall through on adding the titles to PSone Classics, you won’t be lost when the new game launches later this year on the PlayStation portable.
