Square Enix’s upcoming PSP game was promised for this summer but has probably been delayed until autumn. That’s a small delay which is bound to disappoint but it sounds very much like the game is worth waiting for.
Of course, the Western release is likely to be later still, possibly pushing it behind the release of the PSVita. That might be a shame for a PSP game as it will lose some of the limelight that, if touted features pay off, it richly deserves.
According to the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, the game will contain 14 main characters (reduced from a massive 40!), feature elements of control from fighting games – including move cancel – and up to 100 hours of gameplay if gamers want to see all the content. Apparently there’s 30-40 hours in the core game and plenty more to experience outside of that.
All things considered, it sounds like a very promising title.
