Atlus has sent along some new screenshots from their upcoming strategy-RPG Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time. Along with the new shots, the wily publisher also announced that the fourth entry in the series will be available for the PSP on July 31 in stores and through PSN.
Even though the PS Vita is out, the ol’ PSP is still getting some much-needed attention. Fans of strategy-RPGs have another reason to break out the workhorse with the launch of Atlus’ Gungnir. The latest in Sting’s Dept. Heaven series, Gungnir follows the 2009/2010 shooter-RPG hybrid Knights in the Nightmare. And fear not Vita owners, you should be able to scratch that strategy itch as well because the PSN version “is also expected to be compatible with PlayStation Vita.”
Ubisoft has had a surprisingly busy E3 2012. From the return of Rayman for a new Wii U adventure to the open-world, open-ended action title Watch Dogs. And of course, there were zombies, assassins, and Fishers in abundance.
The Atlus Machine is kicking into high gear as Gungnir nears its June 12 release. In addition to the game getting its own slice of the web, a new batch of screenshots have been released for the Sting-developed strategy-RPG. This is the second batch from the English version, with the first released earlier this month.
The first localized shots of Atlus and Sting’s upcoming tactical role-playing game, Gungnir, have been revealed. Scheduled to launch on June 12 for the PSP, Gungir features turn-based combat, decision points with branching progression paths, and 12 recruitable class types.
Square Enix has released Final Fantasy Origins on the PS Network. The $9.99 PSOne Classic is a bundle pack that includes both Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II. Of course, they have been touched-up some, with updated visuals, remixed soundtracks, and a few cutscenes added for good measure.
Sony has released a slew of holiday sales figures for the PlayStation family, including the Vita’s initial numbers after its recent launch in Japan. All told, the PS2, PS3, PS Portable, and PS Vita sold over 6.5 million units during the 2011 holiday season.
To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Rockstar has posted a retrospective on their seminal open-world action title Grand Theft Auto III. The latest set of answers rounds out the two-part series with topics covering the impact of September 11 on production and the origins of the Dodo airplane.
Final Fantasy VI, first released in North America as Final Fantasy III on the Super Nintendo, is now available on the PS Network for the PS3 and PSP. Debuting on the PlayStation in 1999 as one of the included titles in Final Fantasy Anthology, Final Fantasy VI is a fan favorite that still fetches a fair penny for its original cartridge release. Fortunately, PSN users can snag a copy for $9.99.
