EA has finally revealed that they are planning on releasing Burnout Legends, for the PSP. Criterion promises the handheld version will retain the series' trademark speed, destruction and depth with new PSP-only features, gameplay refinements and connectivity. The game will feature eight gameplay modes, including crash, road rage and pursuit, multiplayer via WiFi, and a GameShare option allowing players to wirelessly share a demo level of the game with friends.
In development by Criterion Games, Burnout Legends delivers updated versions of the most explosive moments from Burnout, Burnout 2: Point of Impact and Burnout 3: Takedown, with new gameplay, new cars and new surprises.
"Burnout Legends is the perfect quick gaming fix for the PSP," said Alex Ward, creative director, Criterion Games. "As anyone who's played Burnout can tell you, a quick 30 second crash junction can be just as satisfying as a two-hour multiplayer session — and that's the hallmark of a perfect PSP game."
EA will debut Burnout Legends at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles on May 18, 19 and 20, 2005.
