Aksys Games Holds Japan Disaster Relief Donation Drive

North American game publisher Aksys Games is holding a disaster relief donation drive in its online store. For every game you buy from the Aksys Online Store, now through March 15th, the company will donate $5 to The Red Cross for relief efforts in Japan. You might recognize Aksys as a frequent publisher of several Japanese titles that might not otherwise make it across the ocean, including the critical smash hit Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward and anime-based PSP RPG Fate/Extra. Ever been curious about the fighting series BlazBlue? Then get your ass into the store and be a good human. Buy a great game, help someone get one step closer to getting their house back.

It might seem like old news to most, but Janelle and I have been up there to do volunteer cleanup work and let me tell ya, it still has a long way to go. So hey, go get yourself some games, all the while supporting a publisher who can always use the help, and a group of disaster victims who could use it even more.
