Activision Value Publishing today announced that it will publish The Hustle: Detroit Streets, from developer Blade Interactive Studios. The PSP game is scheduled for release this fall. Blade knows its way around the felt; the Manchester, England-based developer has World Championship Snooker in its portfolio.
In the game, portable pool players pick a protagonist, either Jack Stone or Kat Hudson, and take them up the ranks of the stick-shooting circuit. By betting some ducats on themselves and winning matches, gamers will earn cash to buy new items, such as cues and clothes, in local shops.
Each of the modes has a number of challenges and opportunities to dazzle with trick shots, earning respect from fellow pool players. Multiplayer modes take advantage of the PSP's wireless capabilities or allow gamers to play on one machine.
