PSN Imports announced for Europe

Cho Aniki, Arc The Lad due first.

The PlayStation Network Import store that launched in the US last year is finally on its way to Europe.

As announced on the PlayStation Blog, developer MonkeyPaw Games will be bringing over a number of Japan-only PS1 titles in their original form.

The first three game to hit the service will be notoriously daft side-scroller Cho Aniki, forgotten tactical RPG Arc the Lad and vertical shooter Arcade Hits: Sonic Wings Special.

Arc the Lad II, Arc Arena: Monster Tournament and Arc the Lad III are also incoming.

Prices and precise release dates aren't mentioned but we'll update when we find out more.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
