Natsume Set to Bring Mystic Chronicles to PSP in US

PSP Sony RPG Natsume

Despite the PSP getting along in age, companies are seemingly pampering the system more. Between a handful of PSP games announced so far this year Natsume is bringing their own to the table. RPG Mystic Chronicles has been announced for a PSP launch later this year.

Amazingly, this is not Natsume's only upcoming PSP game. Mystic Chronicles is second to Carnage Heart EXA which Nastume grabbed late last year. So, let's explain more about their latest announced title. The game actually already exists on the iOS marketplace but most gamers would probably rather play it on a Sony or Nintendo handheld.

The game has turn based fights as are the standard for JRPGs. Alongside top down pixel graphics, Mystic Chronicles is definitely trying to appeal to fans of retro RPGs. Natsume currently has the release set for Summer 2013.

Too bad it's not going to the Vita, but I understand there's not much money to be made in the Vita market yet.
I realize they are small companies and niche titles, but haven't more PSP games been announced this year than Vita games at this point?

This just blows my mind.

The PSP is still a pretty safe bet, whereas releasing anything on Vita right now doesn't guarantee much. Kind of a "maybe we'll make money, maybe we won't" situation that developers are too afraid to get into. Attracting that faithful niche game-loving PSP crowd is a lot more profitable.

Anyway, if this game comes to PSN and works on Vita, I'll have to check it out, since I've gone through 3 PSPs and haven't been able to convince myself any of them were worth keeping. :\
