Three new forthcoming PSP games from Sony

Three new forthcoming PSP games from Sony

The PS3 is the star of Sony's booth at E3, but the PSP was here in force as well. Sony was keen to highlight three of its premiere first-party (that is, published by Sony) titles for the forthcoming year: LocoRoco, Killzone: Liberation, and Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters. LocoRoco is a unique 2D scroller in which you control an amorphous blob by tilting the world left or right and letting gravity do the rest--sort of a cross between Kirby: Canvas Curse and Katamari Damacy. Killzone: Liberation is a follow-up of sorts to a so-so 2004 PS2 shooter, but it's traded in the first-person perspective of the original for a third-person view while still emphasizing plenty of futuristic military action. In addition to plenty of playable vehicles and the requisite arsenal of weapons, Killzone: Liberation will offer co-op play and up to six-person multiplayer (ad-hoc only for now, but online multiplayer is said to be on the table). And any PlayStation fan will welcome Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters, the duo's first appearance of the PSP. The latest R&C offers plenty of new weapons and the ability to play as both of the game's eponymous characters.

Look for LocoRoco late in the third quarter, followed soon thereafter by KillZone: Liberation. Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters is expected early in 2007.
