Regarded as one of the best JRPGs of all time, Sony have confirmed that Xenogears is coming to the NA PSN this week. Though never getting an official outing in Europe upon its first release back in the late 90s (I imported it), the game still managed to obtain cult status over on this side of the pond. Officially only announced for NA this week, we do have high hopes Europe will finally be graced with one of the weirdest and most pensive RPGs ever.
Infusing a complex recipe of metaphysical madness into a pot and stirring until ready, Xenogears deals with themes such as self, predetermination, theology, the concept of memory, and a whole bunch of other out-there Jungian and nihilistic theories to make your mind melt. Imagine a game designed by Sigmund Freud on acid, then throw in a whole cast of giant robots hellbent on kicking the crap out of one another, and it’s only half as strange and wonderful as Xenogears.
We’ve put a call in with our SCEE representative to see if Europe is about to get Fei Fong Wonged anytime soon. Start praying to your übermensch Supermen overlords now.
