Sony Online Entertainment is working on one of the few original titles in development for the PlayStation Portable in North America, a hackandslashy action-RPG called Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade, Sony announced this week.
Untold Legends will be a launch title for the PSP in North America, and sees a band of adventurers join together to save Aven, "the last remaining stronghold of Good in a world of Evil" - by clobbering their way through randomly generated environments, and collecting items and artefacts.
Players will be able to choose from one of four playable races - knights, alchemists, druids and feral hunters known as Berserkers - and each will be open to a certain degree of customisation.
It's already looking quite pretty, as you can see from these screenshots, and as you might imagine it takes advantage of the PSP's wireless networking features so that players can band together and tackle the dangers of Aven as a group.
With the PSP's North American launch date yet to be clarified, there's no word on exactly when we'll be able to see Untold Legends close up, but Sony has always said that it intended to launch in Q1, so if we're not talking about it in more detail by the end of March, blame them.
