I saw Imabikisou on the JPSN yesterday, but didn't download it. Didn't know what to make of it. I thought it would be too difficult to play since I thought it was a role playing game.
Dive deeper into the world of Folklore with the new Folklore™ “PlayStation Underground” demo where you will learn more about the characters and story of the game as you sample the game’s animated “comic book-like” cut scenes and play through the Fairy Realm as either Ellen or Keats.
For fans of Sega's Yakuza series, they have posted two demos on the Japanese PSN Store for the upcoming Yakuza 3: Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan
GameTrailers has a copy of this trailer, but the quality isn't nearly as nice as the one on the PSN Store.
I played around with both demos last night and was really impressed. I don't understand Japanese and was unable to find an English translation, but other than the RPG elements, for the most part, much of it was quite intuitive.
I'll post a more detailed menu translation when I get the chance, but basically here are what the demos have to offer. Both demos share the same name, but to distinguish them from each other, they have different thumbnail and XMB title screen pics. You can also tell them apart by the file sizes.
The first one (964 MB) has only one mode, some kind of RPG mission mode within a village.
The second one (839 MB) has several modes:
- Basically it appears you have the option of having a dinner date with one of two well endowed geisha like women, and based on your dinner selections and table conversations you will either fail or succeed in earning their "admiration". One thing this mode doesn't lack is plenty of gratuitous cleavage shots.
- This is fun once you get the hang of it... but watch out for those fallen trees... they can cause quite a headache.
- The way you play it reminds me of Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero. Basically you have to hit the right buttons in the right sequence and the better you get, the faster it goes.
- It starts on a bridge where you are armed with dual samurai swords and must defeat half a doze or so enemies.
- When you defeat them, the next "stage" is at night in a town square and now you are weaponless and must fight hand-to-hand against several enemies.
- The next stage is at a temple courtyard, where once more you are armed with two samurai swords against a wide range of opponents including archers.
- I didn't finish that stage so I'm not sure what follows it. Considering the full game has two additional types of fighting modes, Single Sword and Big Sword, I would not be surprised if following stages offer a sample of those as well.
Bottom line; it's one of, if not the best looking RPG/Action games I've seen and also looks like it has an interesting story and backdrop to go along with it. If Sega decides to make an English version of this game I'm fairly certain I would buy it. 👍
Very nice! I have been looking around the net for a list just like this.
Is it possible to get a demo for a game even after it has been taken off of the PSN? Like off the PC then transferred to your ps3? I'm really not happy that I missed out on GT-HD and GT5 Prologue demos.
Just a quick heads-up: Last night I noticed they released a demo for MGS4 on the Japanese PSN store. I downloaded it, but have not played it yet to see if it offers an English language option, but maybe they'll be releasing an English version for other regions today or in the near future?
