Mana Khemia Schools The PSP In January

By Spencer . November 13, 2008 . 4:46pm

mksaMana Khemia’s academic quest missions made it feel like a handheld game. You can play Mana Khemia in small bites rather than marathon-like chunks. Someone at Gust must have had the same thought since they ported Mana Khemia to the PSP.


Mana Khemia: Student Alliance has a meager selection of new features such as a co-op multiplayer mode where you can battle for rare items and a neat technology trick that lets you install a portion of the game on a memory stick to reduce load times. The latter feature may not sell Mana Khemia: Student Alliance to anyone who already bought the PS2 version this year, but if you passed on the console version and frequent public transportation Mana Khemia: Student Alliance might be up your alley. It’s all about price really. If NIS America sells Mana Khemia: Student Alliance for around $20 it should sell OK. Actually, I hope this sells well so Gust and NIS America will be able to team up and release Mana Khemia 2 on the PSP.

    I want Mana Khemia 2 localized on the PS2 first! :p

    I really enjoyed the first one, but I wonder if they’ll be pulling the second one over here anytime soon.

    It’s $29.99 actually. Seems like a decent price. Just being on the PSP means I might actually finish it, I have a huge stack of PS2 RPGs I bought for cheap that I haven’t even touched, because I don’t want to spend 50 hours in front of a TV

    I’m interested in this, though I’d be more interested at the price point Spencer posted. (Not to say that $30 isn’t fair; I’m just very, very broke. Too many games coming out at once.) :'[

    so is thisa remake of the ps2 one if so i’ll get it if not i’ll still get it i hope the game is at least around $20….

    @neokirby – It’s not a remake, it’s a port with a few features like new items and ad hoc co-op play.
