Dust off those PSPs: Gaijinworks and MonkeyPaw have announced plans to localize Summon Night 5 and Class of Heroes 3 for a western release. While few details have been given at this time, the companies will be polling to determine demand for a limited physical run of the titles – available via preorder only – which would also include access to the digital version.
Gaijinworks and Monkey Paw have announced plans to bring Class of Heroes 2G, a PS3 RPG that launched only in Japan, to North America. No specifics were given at this time, with a release listed only as “coming soon.”
