Remember when we told you that one of our favorite PS2 games, Shadow of Destiny , was getting the PSP treatment? Remember how we said we hoped Konami would bring it to North America? …know how satisfied we are to find out they are
?

According to Siliconera , it has been confirmed that the PSP port of Shadow of Destiny is indeed coming to North America. We've explained a bit about the game's premise before, but as a brief reminder of the concept, here's a snippet from the ESRB:

"This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of Eike, a man who is “destined to die” and who must travel through time to alter his fate. Players can explore the fictional German town of Lebensbaum, solve puzzles, and interact with different characters to uncover the cause of the central character’s demise. Eike’s death is depicted in a variety of ways: he is stabbed, pushed off a roof, poisoned, and shot."

Although we know it'll release in Japan on October 1, we don't yet have a US date, but you can be sure we'll be on the lookout for that. This was one of the first great PS2 games available and although it likely only catered to a niche market, we're positive that anyone who desires something fresh and unique will enjoy it immensely. You have our word on that!

PSXE recommended this one a while back. I think I'll look into have a go at it on my PSP… at least SOME games get out of Japan.

I loved that game when it 1st came out and always hoped for a sequel. I still have the blue back original actually. It has so many different endings, and possible solutions to the " puzzles " that it can get a little crazy. Especially to get the best ending.

One of the best games on the PS2, I reallly recommend this to people who enjoy an interesting plot in a game.

I have the PS2 version but in the UK on the PS3 60GB, it freezes while loading the first video clip on the 4th chapter, its really frustrating.
