It looks like Class of Heroes 2 won't be the swan song for PSP UMDs here in NA. Aksys unveiled a Valentine's Day gift in the form of Sweet Fuse, a visual novel title. If it looks like Ace Attorney, that's because the art style is done by Tatsuro Iwamoto, who worked on the Ace Attorney series.

It'll come out in this summer and it will have a UMD and PSN release. Nice to see Aksys still supporting the PSP with retail releases...unlike other companies *coughAtluscough*.

Very rare. Only 2,500 physical copies will be made if the sign-up is a success. There will be no reprint so the only way to obtain CoH2 will be to buy it off the Playstation Store once the game is up.

What's another great thing about the physical UMD copy is that Vic mentioned of doing either an interview with one of the developers of CoH2 or a Translations Q&A feature in the manual, just like what he did during the Working Designs days.

It's not going to be limited to 2500, they just needed that many units before opening up preorders. Don't get me wrong, it's a one chance only thing; but it's not like people have already missed out on anything.

It is still an Otomate game, just make sure people know what they are getting into.

Well yeah, it was later found out that Vic just needed at least 2,500 people interested. If folks order more than 2,500 copies total, he'll print that many out. The Kickstarter copies will definitely be more valuable so hopefully all 882 backers of that project takes advantage of it.

That doesn't sound right. I am pretty sure that number pertains to how many copies it sold in North America the year it released. It came from the guy who posted some of the NPD sales figures we requested some years ago.

PSP is one resilient console! I can't believe Aksys is giving us yet another UMD release this year. I'll be buying Sweet Fuse just to support their efforts as well as their release this month.

The NPD number was under 5,000 the last time I checked.

Nice. Pre-ordering the physical as soon as it's available from Amazon. I love these things, and wish more of them would get an English localization.

Well it looks like Persona 2: EP will be played on the PSP and Vita...as well as the PS3. It looks like Atlus has voted on bringing the PS One Classic game to the Playstation Store, according to the ESRB.

While I would've love for the PSP version of EP to come out and seeing that Atlus is much bigger than other smaller publishers who still continue to localize PSP games, I guess it's better than no EP ever hitting the current gen. It's also one heck of a deal, seeing that it'll be cheaper compared to the prices found for physical copies on eBay and whatnot.

True but it's better than the worst option: No P2: EP at all. However, it looks like this will be the final nail in the coffin in pertaining to a localization of the PSP game.

Are you sure? I remember Amazon running out before and waiting at least a month for them to get more in stock, which I assume was due to a second (small) print run.

So... maybe one of you can help me figure out if there is something wrong with my computer or if it's Xseed's site.

If you Google "xseed games store", one of the first results shows up as "viagra buy - XSEED games". The same thing happens on my phone. It's definitely their official store... but I'm wondering why it returns as that. Is this happening for anyone else?

There was no second run, it was probably just Amazon's re-stock from returns and un-shippable orders (due to charging issues such as expired cards or billing issues).

I definitely remember Heritage of War official being limited to 5,000 but there was a CAG who had access to full NPD data (or something) as he worked for some game developer. He made a thread where people could ask for sales data for any game, and I'm fairly sure the official number for Heritage of War was 6,700. Not sure if anyone remembers that thread.. this was back in 06, I think?

Yea, they know about it. They were hacked at least once. They posted on Twitter and FB telling people not to visit the site until it gets fixed, etc.

I didn't realize they got hacked. That sucks. Seems like an odd site to hack... probably some disgruntled fan.

According to one of the editors at Atlus, for some reason they couldn't release the PSP version of EP.

I love to find out why this couldn't be released in NA. I mean, after all, XSEED had the balls to say Grand Knights History was canceled due to the developer not being able to lend a hand in programming the English script.

I know this is their own IP but they should be honest to their fanbase. Well, we'll find out what is in that blog post in the coming weeks.

that seems odd to me, I don't think there is any major difference engine wise between the PSP versions of Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment

what possible problem could they have run into with Eternal Punishment that is impossible to overcome that Innocent Sin wouldn't have had?
