Worldwide PSP releases for the week of December 2

Yay for licensed games! While some people would normally be upset with most of the games being released this week of the licensed variety, we're just happy that we're getting any releases at all, which hasn't happened in North America the past couple weeks. Across the pond, however, the Europeans are rewarded with a massive release of games. Good luck playing them all!

Importers will be most interested in Yuusha, the new anti-hero RPG that's been gaining a fair bit of attention amongst the PSP hardcore.

NA Games
EU Games
Asia Games
Noticeably absent from this week's releases is Atari Classics Evolved, which is apparently delayed until early 2008. Despite that, however, we're sure gamers from all regions can find something worthwhile to play this week.

Most of Beowulf cast lends voice to game

The game adaptation of Beowulf will have a few things in its favor when it transitions from film to video game as several of the movie's stars have lent their voice talents and likenesses to Ubisoft. Although Anthony Hopkins, Rayn Winstone, Brendan Gleeson and Sebastien Roche all are on board, Beowulf actress and Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie declined to participate.

"I must say it was one of the hardest working days of my career," Winstone said of his days spent working with Ubisoft. "But it was vital to capturing the power of the film and translating that into a great gaming experience. Beowulf is a brutal character, a Dark Age-gangster with both hero and monster in him ... as a player, I can identify with the monster slayer."

Not only will the game benefit from the movie actor's participation, Ubisoft is also adding in more than 30 years of story that didn't make the cut in the movie. It's about time this legendary story has been turned into a video game, but we just hope Ubisoft can capture director Robert Zemeckis' excellent vision. We'll see when the game releases Nov. 13.

Beowulf coming to PSP?

Ubisoft is developing a game based on the upcoming Robert Zemeckis film adaptation of Beowulf. Not much has been revealed about this Ubi title, but while browsing EB Games website, we noticed a listing for a PSP version of the game. The listing could just be a mistake on EB's part (they do have incorrect listings from time to time), but it's more likely a sign that the demon killer is hitting Sony's portable.

For those that don't know the story of Beowulf, it involves a warrior slaying the mighty demon Grendel. After doing so though, he incurs the wrath of the Grendel's mother in a battle that will turn him into a legend. Demon slaying and games are old drinking buddies, so Beowulf may stand a chance of being a movie tie-in worth playing.
