Speaking to VG24/7 recently, the producer of Square-Enix’s upcoming action/shooter The 3rd Birthday, Yoshinori Kitase, mentioned that they are actually looking at bringing the two core titles in the Parasite Eve franchise to the PSN. Apparently these games are in high demand to be re-released as PS1 Classics on the PSN store, so Square-Enix is looking into the possibility. This would be a pretty nice thing to do to drum up excitement and fan support for the next titles that is based in that world, which is The 3rd Birthday.
To make things doubly fine, Tetsuya Nomura himself mentioned on his Twitter feed yesterday that they would “like to do something for the numerous requests for the archives of 1st and 2nd”. Take that as you will, but these two titles would make excellent additions to the PS1 Classic lineup.
