EA announced today at the Tokyo Game Show that it will ship [i]Need for Speed Underground Rivals[/i] and [i]Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Golf[/i] for the PSP when it launches in Japan.
“The launch of the PlayStation 2 taught us that it is essential to deliver first-rate games from day one,” said Executive Producer and Director of Team Fusion Warren Wall. “We’ve assembled Team Fusion to do just that. Our PSP games will be tailored for the new system in every way — graphics, gameplay and sound. We plan to kick off the PSP launch with a bang!”
[i]NFSUR[/i] will feature new race tracks and environments, Japanese custom cars, American muscle cars, head-to-head rivalry using Wi-Fi multiplayer, and brand new PSP-specific modes. The PSP edition of [i]Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Golf[/i] uses Wi-Fi multiplayer to pit golfers against one another in competitive play as well as introduces players to all new ways of playing golf using new modes that capitalize on the PSP hardware features. Players can compete against the pros from past and present on the Legend TOUR or they can opt to stick with classic Tiger Woods courses.
These two titles will ship in North America alongside NBA STREET and NFL STREET, as well as two other unannounced games when the system will make its debut in spring 2005.
