Ubisoft announces Astonishia-ing new game

French publisher signs deal to bring Korean role-playing game Astonishia Story to PSP in the west

Ubisoft has announced a deal with Sonnori Corporation to bring Korean PSP role-playing game Astonishia Story to the west this spring.

Astonishia Story sees players journeying through a world of knights and wizards in a quest to recover a sacred relic stolen by an mysterious group of naughty hoodlums. Our bet's on the perpetrators being the same ones who hang outside our local off-license - they're always looking shifty, that lot.

"Astonishia Story is one of the acclaimed games for the PC and PSP system in Korea and we are excited to add this quality RPG game to our PSP system lineup," said Jay Cohen, vice president of publishing at Ubisoft. "Astonisha Story brings a rich and simple experience that will satisfy the PSP system owner's desire for a RPG game."

Astonishia Story is heading to the PSP some time in the spring but in the meantime, why not take a gander at these lovely new screenshots?
