They brought Vagrant Story, Xenogears and Legend of Mana to North America PSN. Will Square Enix bring Bushido Blade 2 soon to North America PSN too (it's been on Japan PSN long time)?

It was one of the best selling games in the west and even still revolutionary realistic dueling gameplay to this day. One of the greatest stories, SO MANY awesome and memorable playable characters, and best simulation of realistic weapon fighting with great amount of charisma to the character designs and overall feeling of the battles!!

one of the best and inspirational CG openings ever made

many modes including first person view mode!! different weapons and stances, easy to learn and plenty of depth for professional players with great strategy, skill and timing involved. free movement and immersive survival atmosphere!! and like the first one, you can equip any character with any type of weapon available!!

Characters with interesting personalities, story involvement and full voice acting!!

It's already in the Japan PSN Store, it was fully translated for PS1.

will Square Enix bring this masterpiece to North America PSN Store too? Even the Kengo series can't match Bushido Blade 2's level of charisma, distinct gameplay atmosphere, playable character designs and emotional story!!

Its US release anniversary is coming October 27!! Will Square Enix make effort to bring this to PSN in North America region? Fans should let them know!! :)

It's also the most balanced fighting games ever made!! Rewarding skill, survival, and timing instead of inescapable combos and casual comeback mechanics.
There are samurai, ninjas and even secret characters!! Very unique character unlocking system. Versus and Training modes. Secret cutscenes, an unlockable Slash mode.

here's a cool video of more Bushido Blade 2 duels!! /tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif

in an industry full of energy bar fighting games, Bushido Blade 2 preserves the intensity of more realistic fighting and survival, knowing the next hit may be the last. It is also one of the few fighting games to have a very profound and meaningful story. :) overall considering Square Enix is capable of brining ps1 classics to PSN, it would make sense to bring it to North America and Europe PSN regions too since it really represents the most innovative and revolutionary period for fighting games and storytelling in general. Even Samurai Shodown series is apples and oranges to Bushido Blade 2.

Bushido Blade 1 deserves credit for the things its done, but Bushido Blade 2 overall improves everything about the first one and establishes itself as the highest standard achieved for the series. So if Square Enix localizes just one of the two for NA and EU regions, it should be Bushido Blade 2. Any fans agree?

Would be nice. I think Bushido Blade is on JPSN so it's definitely possible.

oh yes no other videogame comes close to Bushido Blade 2's style! http://na.square-enix.com/tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif It would sell on North America and Europe PSN Stores. It's already on Japan store for so long, and there's already an english version of it. So it makes sense to make Bushido Blade 2 buyable in those regions.

Ah, Bushido Blade... such fond memories of those games.

Pretty disapointed that I do not see a BB thread here at all. Maybe I missed it idk I mean it was made by Square and Sony in which developed into SE today. So why aren't we raging for an updated remake? It would set the bar once again in the gaming world! Real time sword fighting on the next level! The online would be just ungodly just think about it! Of course people are gonna be against it being scared of just getting destroyed by a deadly combination of luck and skill but come on now. At least put it on the PSN store.

Well, at least there is one for BB 2, but I believe that's pretty much it.

That's an amazing game. BB2 had a secret scene for those who finished it staying alive from the start till the end of arcade (story) mode and "1 vs 100" mode. It were pretty nice challenges, as every single hit could be a fatal one for both sides. It's also was a LOT of fun to play with a friend, the game just awesome. Unexpected Instant kills as tricky sword hits, a push from the edge of roof, machine gun shoot and an ax throw made both sides burst out laughing. I hope Square-Enix will make Bushido Blade 3!
