EA's promised work on investing in new IP has been both a blessing and a curse for the company, with titles such as Mirror's Edge and Dead Space being released to critical acclaim yet EDIT doing little to improve the publisher's disappointing sales.
At an event today in London, EA's investment into new IP continues as the publisher has announced that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 third-person action adventure game Dante's Inferno will also be coming to the PSP. The game is based on the poem The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri and will see players navigate through the nine circles of hell (limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, wrath, heresy, violence, fraud, and treachery) as they try to rescue their beloved EDIT Beatrice.
The game is under development at EA Redwood EDIT Shores, where the PS3 and 360 versions are also in the works. Previous titles to emerge from the Redwood Shores facility include last year's Dead Space and the recent Godfather II. EA has also brought in Artificial Mind and Motion, which has some EDIT substantial experience in the handheld space, having worked on several DS games, including The Lord of the Rings: Conquest and Spider-Man: Friend or Foe.
