Level-5 doing horror RPG for PSP

Casts players as the Grim Reaper.

Acclaimed Japanese developer Level-5 has unveiled Ushiro, a quirky new horror role-playing game for PSP.

Players are cast as Shinigami (the Grim Reaper) and attach themselves to people about to die, according to Japanese magazine Famitsu (read by NeoGAF).

Once attached the Shinigami will help the mortal fulfil their final wishes, and even fight monsters embodying that person's malice.

Level-5 has been responsible for titles such as Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King and Professor Layton and the Curious Village. Currently the team is working on White Knight Story for PS3.

Ushiro is due out across Japan next year.
