Irem has released a PlayStation Home themed space based on the remake, Minna de Spelunker, in the Japanese version of PlayStation Home on March 19, 2009 and the Asian version on July 23, 2009. This space is called the "Gathering Place for Spelunkers" and includes a Message Board, a video screen, seating for the avatars, a Stone Monument which is a credits reel of the developers, eight artifact displays, three in-lounge avatars that tell the users something (Weedy Spelunker?, Wise Boy, & Muttering Old Man), and a full game launching support feature accessed by the Stone Statues of the Moon & Sun or the Stone Statues of the Wind & Rain. There are also dancing purple ghost that come out at certain times[4]. There is also an expansion to the space, called "The Bat-infested Abandoned Mine Cave", that takes users deeper into the cave of the Gathering Place for Spelunkers. Here they can play Flashbang Launcher where they collect the Flashband, the Underground Key (Red), and the Dynamite without getting hit by bat guano, then they play Rocks that can be destroyed by dynamite and blow up rocks with the dynamite collected, then they play Minecarts and ride a cart to a place where they get chased by a boulder to a room. In the room there is a shop with Minna de Spelunker related items. There is also a door called The door to the 2nd level underground? which when accessing, gives the users a prize, but cannot be opened until a later time.

The game of Minna de Spelunker supports Home rewards such as a spelunker costume for the users avatars.
