Prinnys explode back into Japan next year

Fans of maladjusted penguins rejoice! The bizarre and distinctly Japanese PSP platformer Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? is receiving a much-deserved sequel, available in Japan in 2010. The first game was well received in the west so hopefully won’t take too long to reach these shores, although there’s currently no plans for a release outside of Japan. Japanese gamers can also pick up a discounted ‘best’ version of the original on Nov 26.

The Prinnys were originally little more than explosive cannon fodder in the Disgaea games, but won gamers’ hearts with their sadistic tendencies and overuse of the word ‘dood’. Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? was their first starring role, and saw them make the imaginative leap from brain-busting turn-based strategy to difficult-yet-charming side-scroller.
