It was Sony's final, crowd-pleasing announcement at E3: David Jaffe and Co. at Eat Sleep Play are working on a new Twisted Metal for the PS3.
But the franchise may be set to return to the PSP as well. According to Examiner.com citing a new listing at the ESRB, there's a mysterious "Twisted Metal" game set for both the PS3 and PSP. As far as we know, the guys at Eat Sleep Play aren't planning to bring their new product to the world of handheld gaming, and the last TM title on the PSP was Head-On , which released back in 2005. Of course, there is the possibility that the original game, which came out way back in 1995 for the PlayStation, might be coming to the Network as a PS1 classic. This explanation probably makes the most sense, even though we already have the superior TM2 on the PSN. Then again, we suppose it's possible that a PSP iteration of the new project could arrive; the team has never talked about it, but that doesn't mean it can't happen. Or, it could be a special downloadable title of some kind that acts as a fun complement to the new TM. Who knows?
It's something we'll have to watch, at any rate. Anything with "Twisted Metal" in the title is worthy of our attention, no?
