Hamster hopes to release a different game each week.

While many of the Arcade Archives games (which has since expanded beyond the initial lineup we reported on) were originally released in English during their coin-op days, only Rygar has seen a western release on PS4. While putting out content globally on PlayStation Mobile is significantly easier than the traditional way, I don’t believe any of the games announced received a western mobile release.

I have to question the decision to release these through PlayStation Mobile, as it just limits discovery. While Hamster isn’t a huge publisher by any means, they definitely don’t fit the description of the usual PlayStation Mobile content provider. They’ve published games natively on PSP, PS3, PS Vita and PS4 at both retail and on the PlayStation Store, with the latter leading to a few global releases. Hamster did release Magic Arrows on the launch of PlayStation Mobile, but like most traditional game companies, they vanished shortly after.
