King of Pool for PSP Hits PlayStation Network This Week
Nordcurrent Managing Director Alex Bravve has announced on the PlayStation Blog today that King of Pool for PSP is hittin PSN this week.
To quote: I'd like to talk about our upcoming PSP game King of Pool that will be available on PSN this Thursday, April 8 for $9.99.
Well, King of Pool is one of the biggest collections of Pools and Snooker on PSP. We have worked really hard to implement the whole variety of rules that exist in the world, and we believe we've managed to do so.
The most popular pool type is Eight Ball. It is the kind of pool you would play with your friends in a real life. We have created numerous visual locations for you to choose from, ranging from traditional British pub to modern club that you would find in Tokyo.
Apart from Eight Ball, we have plenty of other modes for you guys to choose: Snooker, Nine Ball, Four Ball, One Cushion Billiard and other pool games. But the most intriguing part is yet to come. :)
In case the above mentioned modes are not enough, we've gone one step further and created a few original tables you wouldn't find in a real life. Originally they were created by our lead artists just for fun, as a joke, but then we've noticed that a lot of people are actually enjoying playing them. So we decided to leave these tables as a feature, rather than an Easter egg.
And a few final words. King of Pool supports turn-based multiplayer on a single device, so you can play this game with your friend using a single PSP. When you feel like you want a short break from pool, you can take a shot at three little mini-games that come with this package as bonus.
