Thread: Taito Memories PSP announced with 20 games including 4 arranged titles

  1. Taito Memories PSP announced with 20 games including 4 arranged titles

    Looks like this will be my first PSP import. Here's hoping Darius Gaiden and a few other shooters are included too. Maybe we will get TATE this time although Layer Section on a flipped PSP would probably kill a few hand strings. And please, please, please give us New Zealand Story arranged!

    Taito Memories Set for PSP

    The classics on the go!

    by Anoop Gantayat

    October 27, 2005 - The PSP is the perfect environment for classic arcade releases, as Namco found out with its early portable version of Namco Museum. Taito is at last following suit with some PSP retro gaming of its own. The publisher announced this past week plans for Taito Memories Pocket for the PSP.

    Following the pattern set by its PS2 counterparts, Taito Memories will include a number of classic arcade titles from the 1980s. In all, we can expect twenty games, including such classics as Crazy Balloon, Elevator Action, Kage no Densetsu and New Zealand Story. Of these games, four of these will also be playable in newly arranged form, with new items and other bonus features.Taito Memories Pocket will make use of the PSP's wireless LAN play features for multiplayer play. A Japanese release is set for January 5, 2006. Sadly, Taito will be pricing this like a full title, at 5040 yen.

  2. We'll see how it goes... Let's hope we get EAR and GROWL on the US version. Otherwise we'll have to import.
    You don't have to be smart; you don't have to know the facts, you just have to be confident.

  3. Disappointing news, various sites have posted the lineup for the UMD, no Elevator Action returns, no Darius to name a few. I assume it's because this is based on the PS2 vol 2 but if this is the only Taito memories volume they release this on PSP, it'd at least make sense to throw Bubble Bobble on there too. Hrm. Still a decent lineup though I guess, but hopefully it will get a better UK or U.S. version:

    Alphine Ski
    Elevator Action
    Rainbow Island Extra
    Crazy Ballon
    Chack n' Pop
    Lunar Rescue
    Balloon Bomber
    Legend of Kage
    The Fairyland Story
    Rastan Saga
    The New Zealand Story
    Kiki Kaikai
    Kuri Kinton
    Crazy Ballon 2005
    Balloon Bomber 2005
    Legend of Kage 2005
    Cameltry 2005
