Publisher Capcom has pressed the big red button on its pre-release hype for the already hugely anticipated Resident Evil Portable for PSP, claiming that the game is a radical departure from any other title in the series to date.
Other than the fact that it exists, details regarding Resident Evil’s PSP debut were very thin on the ground at Sony’s E3 press conference.
Speaking on his blog, Capcom’s Chris Kramer said of the game: It’s not a ‘remake’ of a previous RE game, but an all-new title created specifically for the PSP platform, with the PSPgo in mind.
I’ve managed to sneak a look at a very early game design document for this title and all I am allowed to say is ‘wow, it’s totally different for a Resident Evil game’.
The game is some ways off, so don’t be expecting this one to come home with you when you upgrade to the PSPgo in the fall. I can tell you that Capcom is working very closely with Sony on this title, as it’s something that both companies have wanted on the PSP for quite some time.”
