Today SCEA's PR Manager Eric Levine has unveiled God of War: Ghost of Sparta for Sony's PSP and PSPgo handheld consoles!
To quote: I'm pleased to share some exciting news involving our favorite Spartan warrior. Fresh off his incredible run in God of War III, Kratos will be coming back to PSP and PSPgo in God of War: Ghost of Sparta!
The last time we saw Kratos on the portable platform was in God of War: Chains of Olympus, a game that coupled stunning visuals with stellar gameplay and is still the highest rated PSP title of all-time on Metacritic. So what can you expect this time?
First of all, it's developed by Ready At Dawn Studios, in close collaboration with SCEA's Santa Monica Studio, so we have the same talented team that brought you Chains of Olympus - they know the franchise and know what it takes to create an amazing game.
I can also tell you from first-hand experience that we are pushing the limits of what PSP can do with state-of-the-art visual technologies, higher resolution environments, and greater depths of scale. We're also providing over 25% more gameplay, an improved weapon system, and new magical powers - all enjoyed anytime, anywhere.
Below are a few screens to give you a taste of the action!
As for the storyline, this new adventure will serve as a prequel of sorts, picking up where God of War left off. Ghost of Sparta tells the story of Kratos' ascension to power as the God of War.
In his quest to rid the nightmares that haunt him, Kratos must face his dark past to prove his worthiness to the Gods - a journey that will reveal the origins of lost worlds and finally answer long-awaited questions about Kratos' tattoo, scar, and family.
Well, that's all I can tell you right now, but we'll have plenty more to share as we move closer to E3 and our release later this year, so stay tuned for more God of War: Ghost of Sparta news and be sure to keep an eye on SpartansStandTall.com and http://forums.godofwar.com for updates.
