By Brenna Hillier, Wednesday, 26 October 2011 06:07 GMT

Sony has launched a number of PSOne Classics on the Japanese Android Market to celebrate the local release of the Xperia Play.

Famitsu reports the handset’s launch is supported by 17 PSOne Classics:

  • Kurushi (Intelligent Qube)
  • Kula World
  • Devil Dice
  • Philosoma
  • Popoplocrois
  • Jet Rider
  • Jumping Flash
  • Destruction Derby
  • Ganbare Morikawa Kimi
  • Gannazu Haven
  • Fluid
  • Tiny Barrett
  • The Adventures of Alundra
  • Crime Crackers
  • Medievil
  • Dochimo Mecha Mecha
  • Bealphareth

Of these, only Jumping Flash, Medieval, and Destruction Derby are commonly available in Western territories, although there is some variation in offerings between the UK, US and Australia.

An auto-translate of the article suggests Sony Japan has launched a marketplace app or category which makes it easy to find and play these games, which may even connect directly to the PlayStation Store; if such an app exists for the rest of us I’d sorely like to hear about it.
