Suzumiya Haruhi no Tsuisō PSP/PS3 Game to Ship in 2011 (Update 2)
posted on by Egan Loo
Enterbrain's Weekly Famitsu magazine is revealing on Thursday that Bandai Namco Games will ship the Suzumiya Haruhi no Tsuisō (The Reminiscence of Haruhi Suzumiya) "wandering adventure" game on the Sony PSP and PlayStation 3 consoles next year. The anime production committee behind The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya film is supervising the original story for this game.
The game's story begins immediately after the ending of the film. The player assumes the role of the original light novels' Kyon as he finds himself at the Kita High School Festival again in a world where the SOS Brigade does not exist.
Update: More background and story information added.
Update 2: The anime cast members will reprise their respective roles in this story set in the parallel world of the Disappearance film. The PSP and PlayStation 3 versions can exchange saved data; as a result, players can play on the PlayStation 3 in full 1920x1080 high resolution, save the game data, and pick up where they left off on the PSP.
