MonkeyPaw Games has come out with a press release concerning their newest title, Vanguard Bandits, a game about giant robot bandits. The game is a PSX classic that we’re glad is coming to the PS3’s virtual PSX console thing that they do (it’s really complicated). It’ll be a nice addition to the list of PSX games found in the store and I personally am pretty excited for it.
