    Default Landstalker remake for PSP!!!

    http://psp.ign.com/articles/648/648551p1.html

    For the lazy:

    September 7, 2005 - Most old time gamers will recall Landstalker, an old action RPG from Climax Entertainment that hit the Genesis in 1993 and provided Sega fans with an alternative to Nintendo's SNES Zelda. Now 13 years later, and following lesser-known games like Dark Savior, Runabout and, most recently, Kingdom of Paradise for the PSP, Climax has tapped into its roots for a revival of Landstalker on the PSP. The latest issue of Famitsu has first details on the game (but no screenshots, so save your yen).

    Currently going by the name Landstalker for PSP, this remake will feature true 3D visuals as well as gameplay adjustments to accompany the new possibilities associated with the change from the 2D isometric perspective of the original. Climax is promising new scenarios and side stories as well as a high difficulty setting. Development is currently at just 10%, but a Japanese release is planned for Spring of 2006.

    Climax president Kan Naito is serving as director and producer on the Landstalker remake. Naito worked on the original Landstalker and even had a hand in the classic Shining Force series, so we're hoping for a quality update.


    Well, well, well. Cool news, although it's too bad it wasn't a sequel. >.>

    I'm still in a coma from hearing the announcement for Goku Makai-Mura (Ghouls 'N Ghosts PSP). Nothing else PSP could possibly rock me from that dazzled state, although this remake does sound zarking sweet.

    Let me guess, it'll be JP only, with no transration?

    PSP is proving to be nothing more than a Portable X-Box and DVD player here in the states. Either that or a PC Engine.

    More like a portable PS 1.5, Genesis, Neo Geo CD, NES, GBA, SNES, etc, etc, etc. Really the hate for the PSP is funny when it's outselling the DS and all it's Nintendogs hype while revving up for the release of GTA:LCS which is looking fantastic and sounding hilarious. C.U.N.T.F.L.A.P.S. anyone?

    Someone with a PSP needs to do a product review of this when it ships! I don't have one.

    I don't get the PSP hate, either. Silly little people.

    There's just a popular intangible hatred for certain products and the companies that make them.. complete stupidity is what it is. There's finally another genuine contender for Nintendo and their dominance of the handheld market. Two handhelds that have the potential to offer two distinct gaming experiences.. variety is good. Any success one or the other achieves will have been deserved, I say, as they both have certain obstacles to overcome.

    I played one, I thought it was neat, except I worry about how long the analong pad will last. It feels like it'll break easily.

    I'm not a handheld man, but I might consider buying one.

    I don't hate the PSP, but I certainly don't think it's worth owning. It has like, half a dozen worthwhile games at best, not to mention a high price tag. The ability to buy movies on an expensive, proprietary format sure doesn't entice me either.


    You just can't handle my jawusumness responces.

    But the ability to play tons of old games via emulation, on top of the fact that while right now there might not be alot of great games you just KNOW Sony will get the 3rd parties to pump out gobs upon gobs of games for the PSP makes the system a worthwhile choice.


    P.S. did anyone checkout the links I've listed? Rockstar is fricken hilarious!
