Two PlayStation ports summoned to the DS

Further emphasizing the DS's status as the system that companies want to rerelease their old RPGs on, the latest issue of Shonen Jump revealed today that Summon Night 1 and 2, both originally PlayStation titles, are headed for the DS. We haven't been able to glean much information from the Japanese magazine's photographed page yet, but it looks like the two SRPGs will be released separately and not as a collection, the first one slated for Spring 2008, its sequel planned for Summer.

Though the GBA and DS received several Summon Night side-story ARPGs, the first two of which were eventually brought to the US by Atlus, this will be the first time that entries from the main series see a handheld port. Neither Summon Night 1 or 2 ever made it stateside -- this seems like an excellent opportunity for a North American publisher to finally localize the games!

Am I taking flippin' crazy pills?!?

Why have you guys not made any note of flippin' CONTRA 4?

How am I to live with my persistent failure without everyone else sharing their own impotence even with the first level of Contra DS?

Well, at least I'm interested in more DS ports of PS1 games. But thank you for your stupid post, Andrew.

I think PS1 games work well on DS, Resident Evil Deadly Silence was pretty cool and I'm still trying to do the maths on how they managed to actually pull it off. With the advent of 256mb DS cards and quite possibly 512mb, I'm waiting for CAPCOM to pull off some of that magic on RE2 or RE3.
Summon Night is a game I've never played, however do hear from my RPG crazy friends who actually linked me to this article that they'll joygasm if this gets released at least state-side (regardless the fact we're eurofags) so that must mean something... Right?
