NIS America’s Kooky PlayStation Duo: Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! Coming to PSP in July, Cross Edge Coming to PS3 in May


NIS America’s latest newsletter has details on the company’s next two titles coming to PlayStation platforms: Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This? for PSP (yes, that is its real title!) and Cross Edge for PS3.

Due out in July, Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This? (or HIOPB!WDIDTDT? for short) is sort of a Dig Dug-style strategy game — with a dash of RPG of course — in which you use the God of Destruction’s pickaxe to dig paths and protect the “helpless, whiny-ass loser pansy b**** underground Overlord” named Badman as heroes attempt to breach his subterranean domain. NISA PR posted additional info and a bunch of screenshots over on the PlayStation blog yesterday. So be sure to check that out along with the game’s official website.

Cross Edge, on the other hand, is a unique collaborative RPG coming to the PS3 in May. NIS, Gust, Capcom, Namco Bandai, and Idea Factory teamed up to create Cross Edge, pooling together an eclectic cast of characters from different franchise titles like Darkstalkers, Disgaea, Ar tonelico, Spectral Souls, Atelier Marie and Mana-Khemia. In addition to the franchise merging, side-scrolling dungeons, action-packed combat, costume changing, and in-depth item synthesizing are sure to keep PS3 gamers busy for hours on end.
