In anticipation of the live action Rurouni Kenshin movie set to be released in Japan on August 25th, the monthly magazine Jump Square has plenty of projects in the works to get fans excited. Among the nine projects there’s a new OVA that’s coming in June, a Kenshin phone app coming in May, and most interestingly, a new game for the PSP.
What is not stated, however, is exactly how “new” the game will be. The link on the project page leads to last year’s fighting game for the PSP, which is odd to be promoting as new. It’s either a mistake or it’s possibly being re-released with extra content. I would also expect a port to the PS Vita since it wouldn’t hurt to have a few extra games to give it some more momentum in sales. More details will probably surface soon, as I’m sure they want to get this game out before the movie hits theaters.
