Two more Rising Star titles leaving PlayStation Vita soon

Rising Star Games has confirmed two more upcoming delistings after the recent losses of Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God and Lumo. In a reply on Twitter from July 28th Rising Star confirmed that their PlayStation releases of Superbeat Xonic (PlayStation 4 and Vita in Australia and Europe) and La-Mulana EX (PlayStation Vita in Australia, Europe, and North America) will be delisted in “the near future”.

Unfortunately they didn’t clarify when the near future might be so grab them soon if you’ve been holding off on either title. I wouldn’t be surprised if both games were gone as early as September 1st. Don’t hold out for a sale either; to another tweet asking about a farewell discount the publisher added “would be fun but there’s, unfortunately, no plans”.

Both Superbeat Xonic and La-Mulana EX were released physically but La-Mulana was through Limited Run Games so prices are likely to climb. Both games have been released on numerous platforms — from Rising Star and other publishers — and are expected to remain available there for at least a few more years.

NIS America's Danganronpa titles leaving PlayStation soon

UPDATE [07/29/2020]: Spike Chunsoft confirmed on July 21st that they will be taking over publishing for the Danganronpa series. As details are being finalized it’s possible that the games will still be unavailable for a time. Thanks to Vita Paradisa for posting the news. Our original post follows.

NIS America announced this week that several of their Danganronpa releases will be removed from sale on the PlayStation Store through the end of September. The delistings come with the end of publishing terms between developer Spike Chunsoft, but it’s already assumed that Spike will re-publish the titles on their own. It could take a while for them to reappear on PlayStation but in the meantime you can grab these games on Steam and on physical media. NIS’ announcement and dates follow:

Select Danganronpa titles on the PlayStation™Store will no longer be available for purchase from NIS America. Please refer to the dates listed below for more information on when each title will no longer be available.
