The classic PlayStation tactical RPG Vanguard Bandits is now available on PlayStation Network for play on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Portable thanks to MonkeyPaw Games and GaijinWorks. This title was developed by Human Software and was released in North America in 1998 by Working Designs. This isn't just a basic fantasy tactical RPG, though. It features mechs that battle it out over three story arcs with five possible endings.
MonkeyPaw Games isn't stopping at simply tossing this game out onto PSN with no fanfare at all. No, the publisher will be offering a free digital license to download the official Vanguard Bandits strategy guide via the company's website. The team was influential in teaming with GaijinWorks to release the Arc the Lad titles and Alundra over the past year. The crew at MonkeyPaw is interested in hearing what other retro titles gamers would like to see made available, so hit MonkeyPaw up via Twitter or Facebook and let them know.
