Yoshinori Kitase, producer of the third installment of the Parasite Eve games entitled “The 3rd Birthday,” has gone on record to say that bringing the first two games of the series to the PlayStation Network is being “looked into.”
“We are aware of the demand,” said Kitase via a translator, “so that we are closely considering the possibility of making it available for classics,” he said at a roundtable interview last week at Gamescom.
“Obviously, Parasite Eve 1 and 2 are not only owned by [Square Enix], they are also owned by Hideaki Sena [The author of the Parasite Eve novel]. But we hope it’ll be there.”
Artist Tetsuya Nomura has also expressed a great interest in making the titles availalbe to a current generation of gamers.
“But, before The 3rd Birthday I’d like to do something for the numerous requests for the archives [version] of 1st and 2nd,” Nomura stated on the Official 3rd Birthday Twitter.
The 3rd Birthday is out sometime this year on the PSP in Japan.
