Sony's Folklore Jumps From PS3 to PSP
The PS3 version will be on show in Germany this week, and now comes word of a portable version. First details.
Sony is drumming up support this week for Folklore, its new monster-collection game for the PlayStation 3. The company will be showing off the game to attendees at this year's Games Convention in Leipzig. What the assembled masses won't see is the PSP edition, which Sony has told Kikizo is in the works in Japan already.
Early reports on Folklore - then called Monster Kingdom: Unknown Realms - mentioned the involvement of Shin Megami Tensei creator Kouji Okada. But it's Game Republic's Yoshiki Okamoto who is showing off the game this week. So we wondered whether Okada was still playing a part.
"Yes he is," Sony's Bill Ritch told Kikizo at an event in London on Monday. "We've got a PSP version [of Folklore] and Kouji Okada is working on that."
Okada is working exclusively on the PSP edition of Folklore and is not involved with the PS3 game.
Sony was reluctant to elaborate on the PSP edition of Folklore and refused to comment on the possibility of any sort of link-up capabilities between the two games.
Look for more on the PS3 version of Folklore in our interview with Yoshiki Okamoto later this week.
