Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has announced four great PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) experiences for younger gamers – Jungle Party, Shadow Zone™, EyePet™ and Everybody’s Tennis – all guaranteed to put a bounce (or a screech) into every car trip, bus ride or crafty late-night portable gaming session. Set to arrive later this year, each of these games will be riding high on holiday gift lists, and with good reason – they’ll deliver a world of long-lasting fun straight into players’ hands, to be shared with friends or enjoyed alone.
Isabelle Tomatis, European Product Marketing Manager, Hardware and Platforms, at SCEE commented, “This year we have some great titles coming to PSP to expand our catalogue and offer a diverse range of experience for all audiences. We aim to make sure that every PSP user – and younger newcomers in particular – can choose from a range of titles to suit their taste. Combining games, music, movies and chat, PSP opens up a world of handheld entertainment for everyone.”
Go nuts in the jungle with Jungle Party
Feeling like a cheeky monkey? You’ll love taking this rapid-fire collection of 15 madcap mini-games from the original PlayStation®2 hit out on the move with PSP. Get ready for button-bashing fun in a jungle paradise as you share fifteen fast and fun challenges with up to four players using Pass Around mode or Game Sharing. And don’t worry if you’re on your own – computer-controlled chimps will take up the slack. This treetop riot is easy to play and packed with ape antics; whether you’re bashing totem poles, leaping across lilypads, playing baseball with an elephant, blowing cheeky bubbles in the bathtub or even taming a lion, the fun doesn’t stop. Prepare to run wild in your very own portable Jungle Party! Available later this year.
Track hidden monsters in Invizimals™: Shadow Zone
Prepare to return to the amazing world of Invizimals - a hidden realm within our own world, populated by invisible creatures that you can only see through your PSP camera. Seek out 100 brand new characters who could be lurking anywhere in your home or garden – then trap them and unleash their miniature powers on your foes. Prepare to do battle against a dark force with its own evil, twisted Invizimals who have designs on your personal collection of miniature monsters. Customise and train your army of weird and wonderful creatures for a battle that’ll take all of your powers as an Invizimal hunter to win – and then team up with a friend to go hunting together in a brand-new co-op mode for two players. Available later this year.
Take EyePet™ out and about
That’s right – the PlayStation®3 augmented reality sensation EyePet is coming to PSP to take out and about with you wherever you go. After melting hearts and running amok in living rooms, EyePet’s making the jump to PSP where, using the PSP camera, you’ll be able to play with him in the park, train him on the bus and feed him at a restaurant with your family – strictly under the table, of course. Just like a real pet, he’s fun, cheeky and wants to interact all the time. You’ll be responsible for feeding him, bathing him and training him – he’ll reward you by learning to draw, making his own toys, leaping into your photos and even catching fish. Even if you’re stuck at home in the rain, every day can be a trip to the zoo with the pocket power of EyePet on PSP. Available later this year.
It’s game, set and match to Everybody’s Tennis
Take to the court and serve up a storm with Everybody’s Tennis, the latest pick-up-and-play challenge from a much-loved PlayStation franchise. Easy to start, but tricky to master, this colourful game takes players on a quirky world tour of virtual tennis where walloping balls back and forth is only half the fun. Customise your unique tennis player with hundreds of different items, then set off on a journey to tennis stardom that lets you get as good as you want without piling the pressure on. You can take the world on in an epic single-player solo story mode, or you can share the fun in a tournament with your friends on the bus, in the playground, or even at a real-life tennis match as long as you don’t grunt too loudly. Everybody’s Tennis slams onto shelves this week.
Look out for these four great new games coming to PSP – the portable system that puts a whole world of games, movies, music and entertainment in your hands.
