Kiss and Tell: Chulip coming to PlayStation Network

Nov 27 // Josh Tolentino    @unangbangkay

It rhymes with 'tulip', get it?!

If there's anything good that can be said about Sony's decision to remove PS2 backwards compatibility from the PS3, it's that the inability for gamers to play their old discs may have spurred the company to encourage releasing older games either as HD rereleases (Shadow of the Colossus/ICO HD) or downloadable "classics". The latter case is particularly good news for older, more obscure games that didn't see a wider retail release. And now, the poster child for that particular theory is here: Chulip may be coming to the PSN.

"What the hell is Chulip?" you ask? Good question! Best regarded as a period romance-themed take on Harvest Moon (sans farming), Chulip tells the tale of a young boy seeking to land the perfect kiss on his beloved. To seal the deal, he must practice his lip-planting skills upon all and sundry, including aliens, zombies, "underground people", random passers-by, and cops. Of course, not everyone will take a random smooching lightly, which is where side quests, relationship-building, and pulling "poopie" out of trash cans comes in.

Yep, Chulip is exactly "that kind" of delectably weird Japanese game (creator Yoshirou Kimura would later move on to work on No More Heroes and cult favorite Wii/Vita game Little King's Story), and if a new ESRB rating is to be believed, it may be making its way to a PS3 (or Vita) near you. That's a pretty good second chance at life (a "kiss of life"?), considering how quickly it flopped way back when it was released around the end of the PS2's lifespan.
