Astonishia Story, the source material for one of the most popular games for the GP32 (it was even a pack-in with a special black version of the console), was apparently released on the PSP, under the radar (mine, at least!). The 2D Korean RPG, with its semi Grandia-esque battles has gotten a minor facelift, largely in the magic effects department, and of course the game also takes advantage of the PSP's lovely screen. The GP32 version was called Astonishia Story R, and deviated from the original in...various mysterious ways (ie, I don't actually know), but the PSP version is a port of the original PC game from 1994. It still holds its own today though, due to the very detailed animation, and 2D in-game cutscenes (you can see some footage of ASR in our GP32 Guide). Check the Astonishia website for a gameplay movie, and some screens.
