Smartphone Games from Sony


On the eve of the release of Super Mario Run — surely one of the most anticipated mobile games ever — Sony has officially announced the titles that its mobile-focused subsidiary ForwardWorks is working on, and it’s a pretty attractive lineup. They detail a few classic RPG series (Arc the Lad, Wild Arms), but what I’m mostly excited to play are the promised PaRappa the Rapper and Boku no Natsuyasumi (My Summer Holiday) games, although we don’t know much about these yet. I’ve actually never played a Boku no Natsuyasumi game, but I fell in love with the series after reading the themed issue of the now-defunct Scroll magazine (I highly recommend that issue). Here’s also a promo video by Sony to promote the lineup.

Rodney Fun Shop


Want to get some lovely Parappa the Rapper and Rodney goods? The Rodney Fun Shop (or RodneyFun.Com Shop) is there for you, jam packed with all manner of merch covered with the art of Rodney Alan Greenblat’s characters. So much stuff I’d love to get here.

And speaking of these characters, a new series of animated shorts called PJ Berri no Mogu-Mogu Munya-Munya debuted in August.
