Published by Cara Hannesson 7 years 8 months ago in News PSP Neverland Card Battles is a port of a PS2 title that was originally released only in Japan under the name Cardinal Arc The Neverland Card War This game will be joining the ranks of games such as Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea Afternoon of Darkness both card based strategy games that were released last year for the PSP This particular strategy RPG follows the story of Galahad a young Dominator who wields Neverland s Spectral Cards as he seeks to banish the evil Hellgaia from his world thus ending the war between humans and demons There are over 200 unique summoning cards included in the game so you should be able to build yourself quite the deck while completing your quest The original Japanese version of Neverland Card Battles was extremely well received and caught our attention as the best trading card game out there said Ken Koyama Manager of Product Development at YUKE S Company of America We have enhanced and optimized NCB for the portable experience and will offer one of the finest card strategy games ever created for the PSP this fall Both the sounds and graphics have been updated for the PSP release of the game along with additional cut scenes A major element that has been thrown in is the availability of ad hoc multiplayer modes which will allow two players to go head to head in real time Neverland Card Battles is scheduled to be released later this year in October You can check out the full press release after the jump Re blogged from our sister site Nukoda com Continue reading Neverland Card Battles Announced for PSP via Kotaku Parasite Eve Makes a Come back on the PSP 1 Comment Published by Cara Hannesson 7 years 8 months ago in News PSP I m going to start by admitting that I m not normally a huge fan of role playing games myself I can watch someone else play them for hours but have just never been able to get invested personally That all changed with the release eight years ago of Parasite Eve for the PSX I spent hours guiding Aya Brea through NYC battling past all sorts of mitochondrial beasties I always meant to go back and replay the game using the walk through but never managed to find the time Then came the announcement that Square Enix is developing a third installment in the series for the PSP which they are calling The 3rd Birthday This game was originally announced as a mobile phone exclusive title I m glad that SE changed their mind I know that Dustin Barton made mention of this in his post about Square Enix s DKS3713 but I feel strongly enough about this game to comment separately about it At the DKS3713 Private Party all that was shown of the game was a fairly short trailer which didn t show off any game play details or much of the upcoming plot This is what IGN had to say about the trailer While it was rather short it started out by focusing on events that occurred from the previous two games This included many of the visually striking cutscenes in a montage that highlighted many of the monsters that Aya destroyed This quickly moved into a scene where Aya walked down the aisle of an empty church in a wedding dress However it didn t appear that the wedding would fully take place as a figure appeared in the doorway of the church Suddenly the glass and pews of the church crumbled and fell to the floor as did the decorative flower arrangements inside As Aya turned and raised a pistol a wedding ring fell to the floor With the floor slowly being covered in blood the trailer ended and the logo flashed up on screen That s about all the information that has been released so far other than it s expected release date for sometime in 2009 in Japan I m hoping very badly that this game makes it to the North American market since it s one that I will definitely be getting my hands on I will keep you posted as more information becomes available Re blogged from our sister site Nukoda com via Joystiq Share Your DS with the Kids Closed
