First screens of the first PSP game, “Death Jr”!

One of the launch games for the PSP will be developed by Digital Eclipse and is called Death Jr. The game is an action-platformer and should have gameplay similar to Spyro the Dragon or Maximo. Judging by the screens the game looks extremely good graphically, sitting somewhere between the Dreamcast and PlayStation 2 in terms of polygon pushing power.

At the GDC a Sony rep claimed “Polygon for polygon, PSP has more power than PS2!” so Death Jr is certainly not pushing the PSP graphically and it now seems that the Sony handheld has a very bright future! It has also been said that 81 developers worldwide are at work on PSP, so Death Jr is only a small example of what gamers should expect once the handheld is launched spring next year.
