The week’s Play-Asia specials: It’s JRPG and otaku gaming paradise!

2 mins read

If you’re on the hunt for some cheap games for your consoles, Play-Asia rotates around weekly specials, and there are often some really great bargains to be picked up.

So what’s on for this week? If you like Japanese RPGs, Japanese weirdness, and more than a little dash of Japanese anime, you’re in for a big week of purchasing!

The ENTIRE Atelier of Arland trilogy: That’s right, Atelier Rorona, Atelier Totori and Atelier Meruru are all on special for the PlayStation 3. Anyone who spends any time on this site knows how much I love these games; they’re fun, they’re funny and they’re endlessly charming. They also tend to be quite difficult to track down in shops, and quite expensive on eBay, so grab them cheap now.

Hyperdimension Neptunia mk 2: Aside from the Atelier games, Hyperdimension Neptunia is right up there with my favourite JRPG series on the PlayStation 3. In this game we’re talking about some of the weirdest humour that you will see localised outside of Japan, and some rock-solid turn based combat. A very traditional JRPG, this – grab it and play it in preparation for Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, which releases soon.

Alice: Madness Returns: And after all those bright anime colours, it might be nice to get stuck into a Tim Burton-style gothic masterpiece. Alice: Madness Returns is a bit of a forgotten gem on the PlayStation 3. It’s a very dark, but endlessly interesting action platformer.
