Konami today announced plans to publish Death, Jr. for the forthcoming PSP. The game is expected to be released at or near the PSP's launch, whenever that may be.
“Death, Jr. is a groundbreaking title for the new PSP handheld system and a perfect compliment to the Konami catalog of video games,” said Dennis Lee, product manager at Konami Digital Entertainment – America. “Death, Jr.’s unique character design and engaging storyline about the mischievous son of the Grim Reaper is a fresh and original concept that has never been approached before and will appeal to a wide variety of gamers.”
Death, Jr. embarks with his friends on a school fieldtrip to the local museum. When the group sneaks away to explore on their own, they unwittingly unleash an ancient evil force from a mysterious locked box. Facing near insurmountable odds and the threat of being grounded and sent to military school, Death, Jr. and his pals must fight hoards of demons and their wicked master Moloch through the museum and surrounding town before anyone else finds out.
