Last week, SCE filed a trademark for "Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman" but no one seemed to know what the hell it was for. Is it a game for the PS3 or PSP? Maybe it's a new advertising campaign? Well, I'm sure some of you are racking your brains for what it could possibly be, but here's one which sounds pretty legit.
According to "an informed tipster" of Kotaku's, it's actually a game - one for the PSP. As they say, Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman is going to be the localization of none other than Japan's Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida!
We hardly ever got to report on it, but our coverage on it is there deep in the bowels of QJ history. The game's pretty popular in Japan so much so that it's already gotten a sequel (Namaikida or2). Heck, I've always been personally curious to try it out too.
For those who aren't familiar with the game, it's presented with some of those amusing over-sized pixels much like in Yuusha 30. In Namaikida, you control an evil overlord who only wants to build and protect his secret hideout. You have to populate your dungeon with dragons, death traps, and other manner of vile things.
Once that's done, droves of baddies goodies? start swarming in, and you better hope your lair holds out against the knights in shining armor. As you might assume, yes, part of the game involves some tower defense mechanics, but that's just the least of it.
Given that this English trademark of "Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman" fits the description of the Japanese game, this rumor could be right on the money!
