Rise From Your Digital Grave: Kyuin, Magical Drop F + Other PSone Archives Return To PSN In Japan
Hamster announced that 10 of their PSone Archives releases have returned to the PlayStation Store in Japan after a two year hiatus. Back in August of 2012, various Hamster and Monkey Paw published PSone titles were delisted from both the Japanese and North American stores. Unlike most removals, the ability to download the content through the PSN download list was not available.
The titles reinstated are:
- The FamiRes: Shijou Saikyou no Menu
- Magical Drop F
- Arcade Hits: Magical Drop
- Side Pocket 3
- Arcade Hits: Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty
- Yakiniku Bugyou
- Yakitori Musume: Sugo Ude Hanjouki
- Gourmet Action Game: Manpuku!! Nabe Kazoku
- Magical Drop III: Yokubari Tokudaigou!
All are playable on PSP, PS Vita and PS3.
Interestingly, the games are listed under the date they originally launched on PSN, though the user ratings have been reset. Presumably that allows older purchases to become valid again.
While the games have returned to Japan, there’s been no announcements regarding the status of the North American removals.
