MonkeyPaw Kicks Off “Retro Rush” Tomorrow With Double Dragon PSOne Import

on January 13, 2014 6:35 PM

Most of us don’t get to play a lot of cool games that are or were only released in Japan. Starting tomorrow however, we’ll get some of that sweet import action thanks to digital publisher MonkeyPaw.

What does MonkeyPaw have in store for us? I’ll let Ryan Olsen, PR Manager for MoneyPaw Games take this one:

We wanted to do something big for the New Year, so starting tomorrow the MonkeyPaw Games Retro Rush will be on! What’s the Retro Rush? Each week, for six weeks, we’ll be releasing a new import PSone Classic on PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PSP. We are going to highlight games from all kinds of genres, and it will all lead up to a game that PSone Classic fans have been anticipating for a long time.

Here is a list of the games that will be released:

  • January 14th – Double Dragon
  • January 21st – Lucifer Ring
  • January 28th – The Firemen 2: Pete and Danny
  • February 4th – Hyper Crazy Climber
  • February 11th – Wolf Fang
  • February 18th – Tomba! 2: The Evil Swine Return

It should be noted that this Double Dragon game is based off the movie from the 90s. Even though the flick was made in America, the game was only released in Japan. This game boasts and impressive roster of 12 characters to chose from.

This is a pretty sweet deal if you’re a fan of old school import games. What I want to know is, what is this mysterious seventh game that PS fans have been clamoring for? I honestly have no clue so if anyone can give me a hint of what it could be in the comments that’d be much appreciated.
