Jonathan Blow's critically acclaimed downloadable title Braid has hit almost every major market on every system it was made or ported to, except for the PlayStation Network in Japan. That's going to change later this Summer, as Ignition Entertainment will be publishing the puzzle platformer on the Japanese PlayStation Network.
While Japanese gamers already had access to Number None, Inc.'s time manipulating title via the Xbox Live Arcade, the nation's PlayStation 3 gamers can finally get into the action. Players will take control of the protagonist Tim as he attempts to rescue a princess from an evil monster, providing the backdrop for the many story interpretations that have circled the internet since the game's original August 6, 2008 release on Xbox Live.
Hothead Games' PlayStation 3 port of Braid finally completes the game's PlayStation Network trifecta. Ignition Entertainment's president of Worldwide Publishing, Ajay Chadha, stated that the company is "delighted to be able to bring this classic title to the Japanese PlayStation Network market". Hothead's President Ian Wilkinson said that his company is "excited and proud to be partnered with a creative and dynamic company like Ignition to make it available on PlayStation Network in Japan."
