We knew well enough it would take more than a few beatings and a couple bars of dropped soap to put Sam Fisher down, so we're glad to hear that he's reappearing on most major consoles as well as the PSP in Spring 2006 under the title Splinter Cell: Double Agent.
In this new installment, Sam goes undercover to investigate a terrorist organization before they commit another stereotypically terroristic attack on the world's populace. Whether this has something to do with Richard Simmons and spandex is anyone's guess, but suffice it to say it'll be an event the planet will find especially heinous.
As always, the update will feature a host of new features like new weapons, new missions, new situational and environmental scenarios (like skydiving and sandstorms) where Sam can hurt himself in a number of ways, and the series' now-standard spiffy multiplayer mode.
The Fish's portable departures have been either good or mediocre so far, so it'll be nice to find out how the game fares on the PSP.
[CORRECTION:] The PSP version is actually Splinter Cell Essentials, as announced by Ubisoft last December 9. We apologize for the oversight. We've had our brains checked and we're fine now.

1. Actually, it'll be Splinter Cell Essentials, a prequel to the first.
