Action Oriented Fullmetal Alchemist Game Coming To PSP

imageAnd no, this isn’t a port of Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel. A brand new Fullmetal Alchemist title is coming to PSP on October 15.


Fullmetal Alchemist: Senaka wo Takuseshi Mono (loosely translated as Fullmetal Alchemist: Trust the Person in the Back) is a two on two “bonds battle” game. Players form teams like Edward and Alphonse or Hawkeye and Mustang and battle each other. Weak attacks are mapped to X and strong attacks are on circle. Teammates can also link up for a powerful combination attack when the bond gauge is full.


Square Enix owns the rights to Fullmetal Alchemist, but Namco Bandai is developing this game. In the past Bandai handled some FMA games like Fullmetal Alchemist: Dream Carnival, a PS2 fighting game, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy for the Nintendo DS.


It’s too early to determine if this will get picked up, but we’ll keep an eye on Homie Rollerz publisher Destineer. They picked up Dual Sympathy and independently developed Fullmetal Alchemist: Trading Card Game.

    Meh… Name me one good, no, *decent* FMA game…

    Exactly. >_>

      I personally thought the two on ps2 were pretty fun

      Maybe that adventure game will be good. At the very least it _looked_ interesting, which puts it ahead of this game.

      Oh well.

        I’m sorry man, but FMA is just *not* VG material… If I was an ace developer, I wouldn’t know what the hell to do with it without losing something in translation.

        At best, you can try to squeeze in Armstrong in like…a Tekken game or something.

    Finally some justice in the world * *!.

    Cant wait to kick some ass with Edward on this.

    Fullmetal Alchemist: Dream Carnival was pretty fun, unfortunately didn´t reach western shores.
