The delayed PS2 to PSP port of The Red Star is almost complete. XS Games announced it will be released as a digital download this spring.
The Red Star, a game based off Christian Gossett’s graphic novel of the same name, was originally an Acclaim title. When the BMX XXX publisher went belly up XS Games picked up the rights to it and quietly released it as a budget PS2 game. If you missed it the first time, The Red Star is something like a mix of Smash TV and Ikaruga. XS Games says the PSP and iPhone versions have improved controls and “fresh visual polish”.
