Silver Star Story being remade for PSP

From Famitsu 5/15 Lunar ~Harmony of Silver Star~ [PSP]

It's a remake of Silver Star Story by GungHo. I'll post pics when I find them.

The image is huge, so I just put the link. Looks like they updated the graphics a bit.

Looks like they're adopting the point and click world map and Isometric perspective of Lunar DS

After taking a closer look, I think they updated the graphics more than just "a bit".

I'm excited. And I don't even have a PSP. Mostly because maybe this means they'll make more Lunar games in the future?

Yes, I have to admit those look REALLY sharp!

Looking at the battle screens it's a little hard to see if they're going the GBA route or the classic route. Either way it's much better than the DS route (visually anyway).

OMG YES.

They better keep the original voice actors, especially Royce's. :evil:

Ok! Front page has been updated. I read through (eh, skimmed?) the article and put together all the information I could garner that way. Japanese forums are abuzz, too. Everyone! Feel free to add comments to the thread under the LunarNET News board (link).

...wow, this is pretty awesome news to break.

Oh, and Nobi? You're awesome. KF

This came out of left field. Does it not feel nice to know the series is not dead now? I'm glad for the LunarNET redesign last year. Now I'll have to redo the layout slightly to accomodate the new game. Probably when I get back from Europe. Damn, horrible timing, as I won't be able to keep up with news, but I'm glad the series is getting a lifeline. Time to buy a PSP.

Chill, G1, I got this! You go onto Europe, have some fun. I can hold down the Dragonship.

I'm going to contact a few of my friends in Japan and see if I can't get some more copies and scans. In the meantime, I'll create an Encyclopedia page temporarily until you have a full section up. KF

This looks amazing.


Someone better bring this to the states, and not Ubisoft.

These are great news :shock:

Day one for me when it gets an English translation. I would buy a PSP and a copy of Lunar HSS, and Castlevania too, now I've got an excuse to buy a PSP :twisted:

And Vic is interested in being involved, yay!

I saw this on Kotaku upon arriving at work. It's exciting, I do wonder with the PSP Go! coming out at the end of the year how slim the odds are of this coming stateside (I have huge doubts) but I'm excited nonetheless. Also the new subtitle is "Harmony of the Silver Star" could this be a remake and a sequel to SSS?

I'm confident it will come state-side. In fact, people already suspect one publisher that just recently said they were bringing over a remake of a popular PS1 RPG that would be announced soon. So...

I'm not familiar with the PSP, how good is the audio capabilities?

With headphones.. acceptable.

It can produce cd quality audio out. It's nice, UMD gives a lot of space (at the expense of loading time).

Sometimes keeping the faith pays off. I'm ecstatic, frankly.
