This Week's New Releases in Localised and Importable Japanese Games (28/7/14)

From Soni Pro
Each week, a lot of new games come out. At the start of the week, I read through all of the new releases I can find and find the weekly new Japanese games and post them for your convenience. This list includes descriptions and links to both English localised games plus the new release games you can import.

Here are this week's finds!

Localisation

These are this week's newly released games that we can expect to see in stores or digitally this week.

Sorcery Saga - Curse of the Great Curry God (PS Vita)



This game's coming to my own country this week, so I had to give it a mention! Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God (which you may have seen on PSN for quite some time) tells the story of a suspended Magic Academy student who takes an interest in an old curry recipe book. This results in a quirky dungeon crawler RPG game to find the rarest of rare ingredients to make the finest curries!

Hometown Story (Nintendo 3DS)




Another one for Australian gamers! From the creators of Harvest Moon, Hometown Story has you taking over your Grandma's shop. You can arrange it how you like, eventually expand and make friends with a bunch of people for your hometown in the game.

Kaihou Shoujo Sin (Liberation Maiden Sin) (PS Vita)



A port of the original PS3 game, Kaihou Shoujo Sin adds visual novel elements in the sequel to the original game (which was a shooter). The story focuses on Kiyoto Kaidou, a boy serving under President Shouko (the original game's main character) who can read minds. On top of mind reading, the game is set to include "Mechs, beautiful women, maybe some space aliens" (Quote found here). Neat!
