But only for the Japanese Store.

Square Enix has confirmed plans to stick a bunch of PSone titles in the Japanese PSN Store today.

As reported on NeoGaf, these will include Xenogears, Einhander and Astronoka, plus Rakugaki Showtime, Raystorm and Fighters Impact.

"Those titles are live on the PSN in Japan from today," a spokesperson told Eurogamer.

The games are priced at JPY 600 (GBP 2.60 / EUR 3.50) each.

Any plans to bring them to the European PSN Store? "TBA" was all our friendly Square Enix chum would say.

It's worth noting there aren't currently any import games in the Euro Store - only titles that were originally released here. So let's not hold our collective breath.

If you're that bothered, and have a Japanese credit card, you could always set yourself up with a Japanese PSN account and access the games that way. Or move to Japan. Or go back in time to when the games were released and then move to Japan. Or oh forget it.
