Wild Arms, Arc The Lad, Ape Escape and More: Many Old PlayStation IP Return in Anniversary Avatar Sets
There are many old PlayStation IP that haven’t seen a new game in a long time, but this doesn’t mean that Sony has completely forgotten about them.
In order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the PlayStation brand and the 15th anniversary of Dokodemo Issho, that gave birth to PlayStation’s feline mascots Toro and Kuro, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia released a few sets of crossover avatars on the Japanese PSN featuring the character of several old and glorious IPs (and a few new ones) together with Toro and Kuro themselves.
Here’s a list (remember that for the link to work you need to open it on an incognito window or log into a Japanese PSN account, or at least log out of your western account).
- Arc the Lad
- Gravity Rush
- Devil Dice
- Ape Escape
- Parappa the Rapper
- Wild Arms
- Dokodemo Issho
- Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines
- Freedom Wars
- Soul Sacrifice
- Full Set
Below you can see the avatars themselves and a couple of commemorative illustrations for each series. Now all we need is for Sony to actually revive a few of those IP from our adolescence/childhood.
I’d give an arm for a new Wild Arms, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
