Ultimate Ghost ‘n Goblins Available Tomorrow on PSN!

John Diamonon's Avatar + Posted by John Diamonon on Jan 14, 2009 // Product Marketing Manager, Capcom

To the PlayStation community: 20,000 thank yous for all your support. We had a record breaking year in the digital space and we couldn’t have done it without you. (Apparently, we don’t just break records, we break blogs son!)

In my last post, I promised that you’ll see a whole slew of PSP and PSone games on the PlayStation Network. To kick off 2009, I’m happy to announce that Ultimate Ghost ‘n Goblins will be available tomorrow in the PSP store for $19.99. For those of you not familiar with the game, UGG is a side-scrolling platform game featuring the heroic knight, Arthur, as he battles hordes of undead in his quest to save Princess Prin Prin. (total run on sentence) I think just having the name “Prin Prin” is reason enough for saving. UGG maintains the 2D gameplay mechanics of this classic franchise and is the only game in the series to employ 3D graphics. The graphics are beautiful and the gameplay is intuitive yet addicting, everything you want in a quality PSP game.

Check out the video!

I also have a new Flock trailer. Peep these sheep!

With over 55 stages, two player co-op, level creating-editing-rating-sharing, trophy support and custom soundtracks, this game is a motherflockin’ good time!

And for those in the San Francisco Bay Area, I hope to see you at the Street Fighter Fight Club this Friday. I’ll be the one fitted with the new Triumvir Street Fighter Shadaloo jacket and jeans. Come by and say what’s up and play a few rounds with me.

Till next time PlayStation Playas.

Your friend from Capcom,

I LOVE the Ghosts n Goblins / Ghouls n Ghosts Series.

I recently just bought my PSP 3000 and picked this game up with it. It’s truely awesome game and definitely worth the $20

I also recommend the Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded because it has ALL of the older GG games on one UMD.

This is fantastic news. Any chance that this downloadable version UG&G can pick up on my save data from the UMD version so I don’t have to start the adventure over from scratch?

I love DL games and I would buy this if it wasn’t $20. That’s just my 2 cents.

John, I’ve spent over $300 on the PS Store and none of that has been on Capcom. I hope we can change that this year! I will buy flock.

The obvious questions incoming.

Ghouls ‘n Ghosts- Trophies? Are the promised Bionic Commando Rearmed ever happening? And as someone else said, I also read SSF2HDR was getting patched for trophies. Is that not happening now? Capcom Home spaces? Capcom PsOne classics, or even arcade?

    + John Diamonon on January 14th, 2009 at 10:53 pm said:

    UGG = PSP game = no trophies.

    BCR = Man, the team is totally focused on the next gen game. I don\’t know what\’s going to happen with the trophy support to tell you the truth.

    Capcom Home Spaces = in the works.

    PSone classics = fo sho.

+ Najee18 on January 14th, 2009 at 5:53 pm said:

We want Bust A Groove! That would be an awesome classic for the PSP on the PS network. That’s not fair how it’s in Europe, but not in the US. Sony, please grant our wishes! (You would definitely make a killing off of it too)

Wow thats nice, im a little dissapointed that RE5 demo is coming to XBL on JAN 26th was it? And the psn demo isnt even confirmed =/

Amazing how RE a Playstation ip, is now turning into more of an XBOX 360 ip, even the footage they show is pure 360….

W.e

It would be nice to have some RE games on the ps store, since they are on the japan store.

Looks like Capcom does listen to criticism.
Glad to see Flock has literally every feature the PS3 has to offer in it!
Just might warrant a purchase!

Hey, one question kind of off topic, but what would it take to get some or all of the PS1 Resident Evil games released on the PSN?
Thanks!
