Watch – Yggdra Union remade for the PSP

By Spencer . November 30, 2007 . 2:45pm

On January 24, Sting is releasing a PSP port of Yggdra Union. The most manifest change in the new version is its presentation. Yggdra Union on the PSP adds redrawn sprites and voiceovers. Compared to the GBA version (video past the break) it looks really sharp. But I’m not about to purchase Yggdra Union just because it’s easier on the eyes. The amount of new content makes or breaks the deal for me.

    wow, the original wasn’t bad but this looks a million times better. Atlus USA, we’re counting on you!

    Looks and sounds very sweet. I haven’t touched the GBA game, so I might give it a try, on a SRPG streak lately.

    Actually for me, just being easier on the eyes will make the game more playable. I bought the GBA version not too long after I got a DS and I could never really get into it because the map battles were so tiny. Like a murkier version of the Fire Emblem GBA games.

    Hmm, my question is, why are they remaking a game from only ~1-2 years ago? I don’t get that.

    Yea, it looks a bit more impressive, and Yggdra is a very nice game. I might pick up the Japanese version on the PSP if I have access to a system, since the English translation will probably be the same as before (which is not to say it was bad, but that’s one less ‘new’ thing)

    I really hope this makes it to the US. I’ve had the GBA version sitting in my backlog forever, but haven’t played more than a couple hours of it. It’s got some of the best graphic design I’ve ever seen in a video game and seeing it cleaned up on PSP would just be awesome.

    really loved the original, dont think id get this psp revision, as wont be so much of a difference…
    i found the last boss to be pretty brutal still not cleared the game properly…
