Sony Computer Entertainment and Phantasy Star Portable developer are remaking a creative RPG called Over My Dead Body where you and your many children battle a demon to break free of a life-shortening curse.
While Sony could have ported the PsOne game, Over My Dead Body has revised graphics made for PSP. Here’s a look at two scenes, battle and the field, from both versions. PsOne is on the left and PSP screenshots from Famitsu are on the right.
On top of 16:9 widescreen support, the field in the PSP version has more of a watercolor look than the original game. Famitsu also notes the world changes seasons and shows screenshots of a snowy area.
You can bring up to four characters (swordsmen, spearmen, and archers) into battle to fight demons. Eventually, your characters will die and create a family tree like the picture on the right. Over My Dead Body has a system to give your offspring a boost. Items can be passed down using the game’s memento system. New for the PSP version, family members from the cursed line can also create original weapons.
Over My Dead Body is slated for release this fall in Japan.
