There has been a sudden revitalization of a lot of series taking place in the game industry the past few years. For the most part it is great to see long desired sequels like Diablo 3 finally coming to fruition but along with the idea to follow up on games that fans love is the idea to cash in on the exact same thing once again by slapping HD on the end of the title.

Yes, it seems Sony has upset fans yet again with one of their most recent announcements. Earlier this week it was reported that some new titles were coming to the PSN, most notably the SNES and PSone RPG favorite Chrono Trigger.

We apologize for the error”
Great news from Sony, as word was just released that later this week, probably one of the most famous, influential, and beloved RPG’s in history will be available on the PSN.

Thats right, Chrono Trigger, the RPG from Square Enix, will be making yet another comeback, this time on the Play Station Network. The game was developed by Square Enix’s self proclaimed “Dream Team”: Akira Toriyama, famed for his artwork on Dragon Quest and Dragon Ball; Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of the Final Fantasy series, and Yuji Horii, creator of the Dragon Quest series. The combination of the efforts of the aforementioned game creators, one of the most sweeping and epic RPG story lines, and the revolutionary time travel system in the game, have caused it to continue to impress, even nearly 17 years since its creation.
Alien Zombie Death, not only does this game have an awesome name, it’s also my first PSP/PS3 minis game. But is it any good? Does it have what it takes to recreate that old school shooter feel on a modern-day console?
UK retailer Game.co.uk, appears to have a page on its site that leads us to believe that Game is indeed coming to Playstation Home on the 18th of March. You can see the page below.
