Bumpy Trot Tournament Action Heats Up PSPs This Summer


Man, this year’s PSP game lineup just keeps on growing. Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament is the latest title to be announced for Sony’s portable, with Atlus USA today staking claim to the game’s North American publishing rights.

Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament is a robot-versus-robot action game in which you will hop into the shoes of an ambitious young Trot driver and help him achieve his dream of winning the Orion City Trotmobile gladiator tournament. On your way to the top, you’ll have free reign to build and customize the Trotmobile of your dreams. But of course you’ll have to explore the open world and complete missions in order to earn the money and fame needed to keep your Trotmobile up to date and eligible to compete in the action-packed arena battles.

Solo campaign aside, the game will also feature a four-player ad hoc mode for tag-team battles and all out battle royales. Single-UMD game sharing will be supported as well, though players will be limited to default Trotmobiles. To use their customized Trotmobiles, each player will be required to own a copy of the game.

Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament is scheduled to ship sometime this summer.
