New Media: Star Soldier
Do vertical shooters have widescreen modes?
Originally released on PlayStation 2 and GameCube as remakes, this new port of the console titles will receive the portable treatment and present an assortment of new features, including fully polygonal graphics and a national ranking mode.
In order to properly play the title, players will be required to tilt their PSP 90 degrees in order to accommodate for the system's widescreen (this being a vertical shooter, after all).
Other than these new aspects, the game will also sport a hefty price tag of 4800 yen, making it nearly 2000 yen more expensive than its console versions.
Star Soldier for the Sony PSP is currently scheduled to hit Japan sometime this Winter, with a North American release still without mention.
