While those of us in the West have been happily lapping up PlayStation 2 content via our PS3s for months, Japan has been forced to wait in the sidelines. Well, until now anyway.

SCEJ held a special press event overnight dedicated to revealing the expansion of its “Game Archives” line. The PS2 Archives will open on 25th July, starting with five titles including Resident Evil: Code Veronica and Siren.

The line-up will then gradually expand, with new titles added every month. Games in the pipeline include Dark Cloud and Dead or Alive 2: Hardcore. Not bad.
