God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta Assaults PSP This Year
God of War: Chains of Olympus is arguably the best game on the PSP and ever since its launch back in 2008, handheld fans have been anxiously waiting for the next portable Kratos installment.
Well, here it is: as revealed at the PlayStation Blog, God of War: Ghost of Sparta will act as a prequel to the franchise, and pick up after the events of the original title. Developer Ready at Dawn is once again at the helm so PSP and PSP Go owners have nothing to worry about; the team will be in "close collaboration" with SCEA Santa Monica, too, and they will definitely push the limits of Sony's portable unit. Features include "25% more gameplay, an improved weapon system, and new magical powers" with the cosmetic allure of "state-of-the-art visual technologies, higher resolution environments, and greater depths of scale." And as it's a prequel, Ghost of Sparta tells the story of Kratos' ascension to the lofty position of "God of War," and he must ultimately prove his worthiness to the Gods. During the quest, fans will finally receive answers to questions involving the dark hero's tattoo, scar and family. It sounds like another rip-roaring good time, and it's great news for all those who recently relished God of War III.
And yes, this is the secret held by that mysterious website, SpartansStandTall, so visit it from time to time for updates. SCEA Santa Monica has said they're done with this series for a while but they're not directly responsible for this one, now are they? Anything God of War-related is awesome, as far as we're concerned. Ghost of Sparta is due out later this year, and we want a date at E3...
