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,

@ bob

The RE5 demo is not exclusive, it’s just that Xbox Live is getting it a week earlier than PSN.

@John

the EA space is still not released but look at this video
http://blog.us.playstation.com/2009/01/09/ces-2009-inside-eas-upcoming-home-sports-complex/

the reward/point system is brilliant, great way to keep people going back to your space. I hope capcom does the same, give us some points that we can use to get prizes like Ryu statue or a megaman shirt, that way you keep people coming back watching new trailers and stuff for capcom games.

besides you seem to hang around home a lot! you know what it needs to keep you in… give your own feedback to capcom and point them to the EA video :)

John, you gotta go online more so I can send you messages with assurance that you’ll read them, lol.

And of course my avatar is hot, she was created with my tastes in mind :P

G&G huh? Never played it before but I hear good things, might check it out. And lovin’ the support John, most of my PSN games are from Capcom. And I’m sure it will stay that way, can’t wait to see what’s next.

And glad to see that they’re still letting you post ;D.

Oh, and everytime I play SFHD and see Fei Long I think of you xD.

Hey thanks John, I’m glad that you are commenting back to us thanks for that. I know that a mega man legends 3 is unlikely but i’d get it. one thing I really miss and its so hard to find is power stone on the dreamcast. One of my favorite games ever that would be a great multi platform online release.

    Our devs read the blog. So asking for something makes it closer to reality sometimes.

i second the idea of a power stone game with online.that would be one of my top 10 games easyly.

Hey John, you guys are doing a great job and it’s appreciated by this gamer at least.

I would love for the Mega Man Legends and Resident Evil games to be hitting PSN rumour to be true, so my fingers are crossed.

Please make them affordable though, I just lost my darn job. >.<

Hey John,

Kudos to you and Capcom from Canada – you guys truly support PlayStation and it’s network. It’s true, you guys really are the ones who support the PS Store the most. At first, when Sony gave you guys an entire PS Store shelf, I was like, what the hell? But now I see why, you guys just won’t stop delivering content, and that’s what the PSN is all about. Keep up the great work, and I look forward to your guys’ home space – I’m sure you will be supporting Home just as well as you are the PS Store (seems like you already are with the RE Degeneration stuff happening lately)

Anyways, good work John and crew,

and LETS GO EAGLES!

    Well, if we got our own store, the least we could do is fill it with content, right?

I was very disappointed in UGG when it launched awhile back. I see it in every Capcom game. To stand a chance, to replaying the the whole damn thing over, to replay with this or that. They all offer only a half of a game. I read/hear all the props the media give Capcom for being the only Japanese developer to be up on this generation of gaming. Copy paste game play is 1985.

john, your making me like capcom again. capcom was my favorite dev’s last gen. but you guys sorta switched sides in the beginning with all the bad news towards PS3.

but tell the resident evil people that i want a real resident evil. with Zombies and not walking squid monsters with chainsaws. atleast make a PSP resident evil with Jill as the main. she was my favorite character(birthday is valentines day lol). when resident evil 1 came out i was only 5 and beat it. its the series that got me to love video games.

and if the rumor about jill in RE5 is true i hate capcom again lol.jp

i dont remember her dieing but thats the rumor for RE5.

looked it up. she didnt die in the previous games but there was an advert with chris standing over her grave.

that sucks. she will probably end up a boss in RE5. guess ill have to find out.

u will be my favorite person on this blog if u can get some RE goods on Playstation store. RE3 would be nice. havent played that one in a while.

These games are awesome. Though I see myself ordering G&G on UMD from the capcom store since I only have a 1gb card.

I’ve never played a G&G game yet, but I just ordered capcom classics collection #1 and 2 from the capcom store because it was highly recommended.

Hey John,

I just wanted to see if you have know yet whether SF4 will get IN-GAME XMB Music?

Remember #108?

“John Diamonon replied on January 15, 2009 at 7:13 am
Good to see you again too LN. Win any prizes? I’ll ask about custom soundtracks for SF4.”

If you haven’t yet just let me know once you have confirmation of wheter it is or not going to be included.

Thanks John!

+ LN_MEXWARRIOR on January 19th, 2009 at 12:32 pm said:

BTW John,

I had a typo it should read “if you know”.

Also I unfortunately didn’t win any prizes BUT I went ahead and picked up SF2HD and it’s awesome(although I wish it had trophy support)!

Hope to hear from you soon!

John, I have a question for you.

You confirmed back on page 1 that you guys are indeed working on getting the RE series onto the PS One Classics store.

The thing is, all these PS One Classics so far are emulated straight from the disc; single-disc games. So what happens with Resident Evil 2? One price, two separate downloads? Pay twice, one for Leon and one for Claire?

Hope to hear back! Just found out about this blog, it’s great that people from the community can establish a rapport with fans this way.

So when are we going to get more PSOne goodies for PS3-PSP like Megaman X 3/4/5/6, Street Fighter Alpha 2/3, X-Men Children of the Atom, Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men vs Street Fighter, Marvel vs Street Fighter, Marvel vs Capcom, Strider 2 (the best game ever made) and other Capcom classics on PSN? Oh and lets not forget the Resident Evil PSOne trilogy… What better way to celebrate (and profit even more over) the launch of Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter 4 than releasing some of those related games on PSN?

Is RE5 demo out tomorrow for PS3 or not?

I know for a fact SF Remix is getting patched, but you’re not allowed to talk about the contents of the patch.

The consumers support Capcom and without us Capcom wouldn’t make any money. The reality is we want trophy support. So stop getting so defensive. Honestly after tasting what it’s like to have trophies in games I highly doubt I would ever buy a game without them unless is was a game that came out in the first year of the PS3’s life or a PSone classic.
