Namco Bandai is bringing the 2003 PlayStation 2 RPG, Venus & Braves, to PSP next year. The portable version has some changes like Tales cameos (see below) and other features Namco Bandai is saving to announce at a later date.
Venus & Braves follows Blood who is tasked by the goddess with saving the world from the great calamity a century in the future. Throughout his journey, Blood’s comrades will pass on, but being immortal Blood will live on. The game uses a rotational battle system for combat. Players place units in rows, top or bottom, and fights play out. If a character dies they’re gone for good.
Venus & Braves has seventeen jobs. They are (in order): Samurai, Ninja, Valkyrie, Monk, Adventurer, Barbarian, Sibyl, Magician, Warrior, Shaman, Cleric, Paladin, Knight, Archer, Witch, Wizard, and Warrior Mage.
Here’s a look at the game’s opening movie.

The group may have an extra member too. Free, a timid 15 year-old-archer, meets up with the Golem Bandits hoping to join them…
