Back in July, popular game developer Kairosoft released a new game called Oh! Edo Towns. Much to the surprise of Kairosoft-lovers, however, it was region locked to Japan.

But not anymore. Now, Oh! Edo Towns is available in the Play Store for all users.

Oh! Edo Towns keeps that familiar (and loved) Kairosoft style, but goes back in time to the Japan's Edo days. Build houses, castles, and all other sorts of old-school architecture, and place building side-by-side to create "combos." It's your town - build it how you see fit!

The game is available now in the Play Store for five smackaroos - hit the widget to grab it.

    I wish Kairosoft would expand upon their game formulas for bigger, more complex games, post actual changelogs for updates, and have better customer service for English speaking customers. They have the knowledge and experience to make ridiculously good games as they've proven, but so many of their games are... well, the same games over and over again. I also wish they'd go a little more coverage-starved in favor of devs working to push the envelope, to perhaps inspire them to come up with something new and better.

    I love how people complain that they are doing the same game over and over again, while continue to praise the newest Mario, Zelda, COD and FF.

    The theory is the same: They have a core formula that works, so Kairosoft improves upon it, changes it while keeping the core formula the same. Every single kairosoft game can be picked up and played for a ridiculous amount of time, isn't it enough for everyone?

    Less QQ more pew pew please.

      No they don't. Those games have sequels. I would sing the praises of a Game Dev Story 2 or Grand Prix Story 2 with new twists and mechanics. This is rehashed stuff over and over.
      Rather than new, expanded versions of the same game with new features and characters and deeper gameplay, it's the same gameplay, same duration of gameplay, with the same formulaic actions. All that's changed is the text and the bitmaps.
      If Kairosoft made Super Mario Bros, we'd see the exact same Super Mario Bros game time after time, with different character models and names, rather than new games. Super Mario Brothers! Awesome Dynamite Siblings! Indifferent Raisin Pals!
      Pew pew all you want, meanwhile I'll pan Kairosoft until they grow as developers and demonstrate the improvement you're imagining, and save my 5 bucks for better games.

        I'd play Indifferent Raisin Pals.

    To people complaining about these games... These games are literally over a decade old. They're in the process of porting their entire back catalogue to mobile devices but have plans to create new games in the future. So cool your jets.

    Also, game dev story 2 is probably a way off yet :(
