Durarara!! Game Announced For PSP

Dengeki magazine publisher ASCII Media Works have announced a new Durarara!! adventure game for PSP via Dengeki’s game sites, titled Durarara!! 3way Standoff. No real details are available on the net just yet, except that the game will feature most of the original voice cast and will release in Summer 2010.

 

The latest issue of Dengeki Bunko, however, contains more information with screenshots, which super-tipper Anton sounded us off about from his ongoing trip to Japan. Durarara!! 3way Standoff is being developed by NetchuBiyori, who are also working on a Wii game, and a Spice & Wolf game for DS.

 

In the past, Dengeki have published other visual novel adventure games based on anime series under their DS Dengeki Bunko ADV — among others — brand. Baccano!, by the same author as Durarara!!, is one of them.

 

As much as I love the genre, I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed this is a visual novel style affair. There’s a tremendous amount of potential for Celty and her bike in an action game. Also, what’s up with Anri’s character art?

    Anri is being used as Fanservice on that poster! x_X DISLIKE! She should be with her shy smile in the middle of Mikado and Masaomi! and VN means, no localization, at least no official one. D:

      Izaya used as Fanservice, HATE. >:( ~~~ <3

    Anri looks… ample.

    Her character art looks way off model though, which is disconcerting.

    So, who do I have to pay-off to get this thing localized?
    While they’re at it, bring over the 2 Dengeki Spice and Wolf DS games!

  • shion16

    awesome!!!

  • doubletaco

    You had me for a second there. I almost believed that they were making a DRRR game.

    Cheap cash-ins ahoy.

      Considering they’re going to the trouble of getting the original case together for the game, I doubt it’s as cheap as you think. :)

        I’m guessing it’s similar to the Baccano! DS game that came out a while ago. It’s nothing really earth shattering at all. I’d never get it, unless it came with a nendoroid or something, hahaha.

    HOLY SH- oh. Just a visual novel, ok.

    On a side note:
    Man, it’s hard having to wait for the next episode. I’m so hooked, is there anything not to like in this anime?

    Durarara was a huge disappointment to me! I would so love to see a game based on Bantorra!

    • Jaxx-Leviathan

      Durarara didn’t disappoint me, I like it a lot but I totally agree regarding Bantorra. Just finished it and I’d love a game that got more in-depth with the characters and their stories. Watching the anime I imagined a action-rpg where you are new Armed Librarian, you choose your magical right and work towards supporting either Hamyuts to the canon-ending or Volken to a new ending in his idealism.

      Durarara isn’t even over yet.

  • yukichan

    I whas waiting for an action game, but a Visual Novel its not bad

  • holyPaladin

    Wew…
    Action/fighting would be nice.
    So we can see Izaya and Shizuo fight

  • karasuKumo

    :P I was hoping to play as Shizou and throw something at Izaya. haha But no we get a visual novel :(, I hope it’s got an interesting story to it because the anime is awesome. :D Anri fan service ftw!
