The folk from the Land of the Rising Sun have a nice surprise waiting for them in their PlayStation Store today.

Among a host of other PlayStation games gracing the Japanese PSN is eponymous zombie survival-horror sequel, Resident Evil 2, known as Biohazard 2 over there. The game is notable for being set in an entire city rather then the mansion of the first title, and introduces two new playable characters; rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy (who later appeared in Resident Evil 4), and college student Claire Redfield.

The full list is as follows:

Biohazard 2 (Resident Evil 2), as detailed above
Intelligent Qube, a puzzle game involving cubes
PoPoLoCrois Monogatari II, an RPG reminiscent of FF: Tactics
Crime Crackers 2, a scrolling shooter with strong Anime influences
Atelier Marie Plus, an RPG based on an Anime about Alchemy
Tantei Jinguji Saburo Early Collection, is some form of Detective game
Magical Drop, a puzzle game that works a bit like an upside down Puyo-Puyo game
Baroque, a survival horror that works a bit like Devil May Cry
And finally, Robin Lloyd no Bouken, which seems to be an adventure game with a lot of dialog akin to the Legend of Zelda titles.

Let’s hope at least Resi 2 comes to the West.

Stay tuned.
