Sony teams up with Rockin’ Android to bring Japanese indie-style games to the PSN
Sony Online Entertainment and indie videogame developer Rockin’ Android announced today a collaborative effort, in which the two companies will localize, produce and release doujin, or Japanese-style indie video games, for the PSN.
The PSN is well know for some excellent niche titles such as Flower, so these indie games will be a welcome addition. So – what do they have in the pipeline?
‘The Gundemonium Collection’ consists of three titles;
- Gundemonium Recollection
- Hitogata Happa
Each game delivers action packed 2-D anime-style game play, and brings the intense indie ‘bullet hell’ genre to the PS3.
Each of the titles offers multiple levels of frenetic action and high–impact weaponry. All of the titles will offer Trophy support and remote play capability.
Rockin’ Android President Enrique Galvez had the following to say;
“Our collaboration with game development powerhouse Sony Online Entertainment creates an incredibly unprecedented opportunity to expose many of Japan’s top indie video games to the worldwide online gaming community.
This is truly an exciting time for both companies, the Japanese indie game industry and gaming consumers.”
The very first screen shots from the games can be found below.
