GungHo Online Entertainment has announced the release of six more Japanese PSOne imports. The first set of games that released April 9, 2013 are Evergreen Avenue, Favorite Dear ~Jyunpaku no Yogensha~ and Zero Kara no Mahjong ~Mahjong Youchien Tamago-gumi~. The six new games to be released on May 7, 2013 will be Motto Trump Shiyouyo!, Zero Kara no Shogi ~Shogi Youchien Ayumi-gumi~ and Zero Kara no Mahjong ~Mahjong Youchien Tamago-gumi 2~.
Evergreen Avenue gives players a choice between playing as a male or female as they enter into the game, either choice will give you a unique set of traits and will have their own backstory. The game is a mixture of a visual novel, schedule management and puzzle game.
Favorite Dear ~Jyunpaku no Yogensha~ is a JRPG that requires a lot of reading but has many menus and character stats that are in English. GungHo Online Entertainment says “The battle system is relatively straightforward, and players shouldn’t have too much difficulty unleashing their attacks.”
Zero Kara no Mahjong ~Mahjong Youchien Tamago-gumi~ is a Mahjong game that focuses on easing players into the game.
Motto Trump Shiyouyo! is a sequel to Trump Shiyouyo! This title includes even more games than the first. Some of the included games are: Daifugo, Shichinarabe, Seven Bridge, Dobon, Page One, Shinkeisuijyaku, Poker, Blackjack, Napoleon, Klondike, Free Cell, and Speed.
Zero Kara no Shogi ~Shogi Youchien Ayumi-gumi~ is described by GungHo online Entertainment as follows. “Take lessons, read classic motivational proverbs, and take on all crazy cartoon challengers as you become the ultimate Shogi master!” This is a game that will require you to look up the rules online, unless you can read Japanese text.
Zero Kara no Mahjong ~Mahjong Youchien Tamago-gumi 2~ is a sequel to sequel to Zero Kara no Mahjong ~Mahjong Youchien Tamago-gumi~. In this installment of the series players will face colorful cartoon characters in the game of Mahjong. Again, if you can’t read Japanese text you will need to look up the rules online.
The games will each be available for $5.99 and GungHo Online Entertainment is working on some walkthrough videos that are intended to help players better understand and navigate the Japanese menus in each game. They have already released a couple of the videos which can be found on their Facebook page.
