Sega PSP Demos Cater To RPG Fans
Role-playing fans are in for some fun on the PSP and if you're not convinced, you can always try to the pair of demos that will be available on the first two days of November.
According to a recent Famitsu.com report summarized at Andriasang, the first is Phantasy Star Portable 2 and it will be up and ready on the first of November. This sequel is what many multiplayer RPG aficionados have been waiting for; the PSP has proven to be a good platform for this style of gaming (especially in Japan), and Phantasy Star is one of Sega's more popular franchises. Next up, on November 2, is a demo for Valkyria Chronicles 2, one of the more hotly anticipated handheld titles. PlayStation 3 owners who fell in love with the original title were a bit miffed to learn this sequel would only be on Sony's portable unit, but PSP fans should be happy. Of course, we're assuming these demos will only be on the Japanese PlayStation Store so hopefully, you're savvy enough to have one such account handy... Over the years, it has been a good idea to have multiple Store accounts, just 'cuz Japan tends to get lucky in regards to demos and other content.
We do get the feeling that Sega will likely bring Valkyria Chronicles back to the PS3 at some point; they just wanted to approach a different audience this time around.
