It sure has been a while since NIS put out a port. I mean really, it’s been a whole eight months since La Pucelle: Ragnarok, the PSP port of La Pucelle: Tactics came out! Oh wait, false alarm – Phantom Brave Portable‘s just been announced. It’ll hit Japan in October, 2010.

The latest issue of Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation announced Phantom Brave Portable a PSP port of the strategic RPG Phantom Brave. Initial reports confirm that it is a port of the Wii port, Phantom Brave: We Meet Again, which means it should contain the extra, alternate-world scenario. Also, it is rumored that Phantom Brave Portable will have cameo characters appearances from Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman, Prinny: Can I Be the Hero and Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome. Of course, you had to figure that last part – all NIS games have cameo appearance from characters from other NIS games. I wouldn’t be surprised if Asagi shows up too.

So far a US release hasn’t been announced, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Phantom Brave Portable showed up here sometime in 2011. NIS America brought the other two versions of Phantom Brave over. Then again, you never know. We’re still waiting for NIS America to announce La Pucelle: Ragnarok.

Good for Phantom Brave! I mean sure, it received a Wii port, but strategic RPGs are really welcomed and loved on the PSP. Hopefully it’ll get even more attention from this port, as it’s really a wonderful game. Now I have to wonder when Soul Nomad will get the PSP or Wii port it so rightfully deserved.
