Konami ships PSP pair
Ys: The Ark of Napishtim and Street Supremacy now shipping to stores around the country.
Konami is bolstering the PlayStation Portable catalog today with a pair of new offerings. The publisher has announced that it shipped the head-to-head racer Street Supremacy and the action role-playing game Ys: The Ark of Napishtim to stores nationwide.
The latest edition of the Tokyo Highway Battle series, Street Supremacy lets gamers try to become king of the road through various game modes, including a team battle mode in which rival crews claim turf through winning races or sending opponents into walls. The game features licensed cars from manufacturers such as Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Subaru, as well as the ability to modify rides with paint jobs, spoilers, exhausts, and other new parts.
Meanwhile, The Ark of Napishtim, a PSP port of the PlayStation 2 role-playing game of the same name, follows the exploits of redheaded hero Adol Christin. When Adol is swept up in the Great Vortex and dropped off on an unknown series of islands surrounded by mysterious whirlpools, he must fight his way back home. Besides shrinking the adventure down for the small screen, the PSP version also sports a number of exclusive features, including minigames, a character profile database, and a media player.
Street Supremacy is rated E for Everyone, while Ys: The Ark of Napishtim is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older. Both retail for $29.99. Check back soon for GameSpot's full reviews for both games.
