Fans of the original Power Stone get ready for the series triumphant return on the PSP. The series originally appeared on the Sega Dreamcast and was enjoyed by many. Some compare the title to Super Smash Bros with its party type fighting genre and gameplay. Capcom has finally decided it's time to give the series another go and release it on the PSP. Later this Fall the PSP will receive Power Stone Collection, which will feature the first Power Stone as well as its sequel, will also feature a bunch of new PSP exclusive features as well.
With the release of Power Stone Collection for the PSP expect the same great gameplay and feel from the original Dreamcast versions. When the title releases later this year expect fast-paced gameplay, sharp graphics, a solid single player arcade mode, and plenty of multiplayer modes.
The arcade mode will allow players to play through a variety of levels and battle a number of opponents. Instead of the traditional one-on-one fighting like most fighters Power Stone mixes things up so in some matches you'll be battling one opponent then the next match four opponents. This adds a nice mix to the traditional formula. Perhaps you might want to check out the training mode before taking on the tough opponents in the single player mode though. In training mode you will be able to hone all your abilities, skills, items, and weapons. Remember practice makes perfect.
The PSP will feature a new multiplayer mode with Ad/Hoc support allowing you to play all your friends who own a PSP. The game will also feature Game sharing mode and will allow up to three others to play using a single UMD disc. With the transition to the PSP screen Capcom has upgraded there camera system. Not only will players get a wider view of the action, tailored for the PSP system’s widescreen, but they can also toggle between wide, mid and close range views of the action at any time.
Everyone knows that whenever they play a good fighter they always want a picture of the move they pulled off so they can brag to their friends. Well know you can do that in Power Stone Collection with the all new Screenshot mode. Pause during the game and simply adjust the camera to take the perfect picture of the perfect move.
Power Stone Collection is set to hit the PSP later this year. This will be a breathe of fresh air for PSP owners with the games fast-paced gameplay, cartoony graphics, and great line-up characters.
