Hi everyone. I’m back! :) Quite a lot happened while I was away so I’ve got lots of news to share with you all.
The biggest news of the week was the release of an updated version of our only iPhone game, International Athletics. Not only does International Athletics 2012 feature 11 amazing events across a range of international stadiums, but we’ve now added leaderboard support and the best part is that you can try it for absolutely nothing, as this new version is free to play with an in app purchase allowing you to unlock all the events, stadiums and tournaments for just £0.69/$0.99.
The original PSP & DS versions of International Athletics were some of the first games I worked on here at Ghostlight and I still have very fond memories of attending an Athletics Grand Prix at Crystal Palace to show off the game.
I know it’s quite different from the type of games we usually talk about here on the Ghostlight Blog, but why not head over here and give it a try?
Onto more traditional Ghostlight blog subjects and as some of you may remember before I left, I mentioned that the PSN version of Fate/EXTRA was going through submission. Well I’ve just been told that the metadata for Fate/EXTRA has been approved which means we are now one step closer to being able to give you a PSN release date for this game :).
Talking about the PSN store, SMT Digital Devil Saga 1 & 2 are still making their way through the submissions process. While it’s frustrating and taking way longer than we thought, we’re hoping these two excellent games will soon be making their well deserved debut in the PS2 Classics section of PSN very soon.
In other news I’ve heard that our sister company, Midas, will be releasing the awesome Atlus title Maken Shao: Demon Sword as part of the PS2 Classics programme in the near future.
Anyway, that’s all for now. Thank you to Al (@ev4nac) for looking after the comments section of the blog while I was away. I’ll be back next week but until then you can also follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight. You can also follow me on Twitter for a more personal take on all things Ghostlight.
