SNK Classics on PSN Network

While PS3 owners may feel sad about XBLA having SNK games such as MOTW and KOF 98UM (albeit with crappy netcode) there may be some solace in the fact the following are available on PSN… Japan.

Now it is important to note that these are Japanese language games, so don’t go rushing off to get those RPGs if you can’t understand Nihongo.? Otherwise, you can download these games (and a ton others, plus Japanese demos etc) and they will work on your PS3, wherever you are in the world, whatever type of PS3 you have (don’t quote me on that).? The only thing you have to do is create a Japanese PSN account.

Another thing to note is that these are the PS1 versions, and so do not have any online features at all, which is why I am still not going to do this myself.? I’m not bothered by the idea of getting to play Japanese demos of upcoming games – I can wait for the western release.? Of course, if there was a KOF XIII demo, that’d be a different story…? Anyhoo, if you want, here’s a guide:


Nnnng Wild Ambition is a great game… but I don’t have the time for old games now… nnnng… must… resist….
