Square-Enix has announced plans to bring classic RPG series Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy together in a new game for the PSP.
Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy in Itadaki Street Portable, as it's known in Japan but probably won't be over here, already has it's very own official website - not that there's much to see so far.
However, Japanese magazine Shonen Jump has revealed the first snippets of info about the game, including news that it will feature playable characters from both series, including Final Fantasy XII's Fran and Balflear. Stages will include one based on the Phantom Train in Final Fantasy VI.
This isn't the first time Squenix has produced a DQ/FF game - back in 2004, they released Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy in Itadaki Street Special for the PS2. It was a big hit in Japan, but never made it over here. The PSP game won't be a direct port of the original - instead it'll feature all-new characters and stages.
Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy in Itadaki Street Portable is due out in Japan this spring - here's hoping it makes it to Europe later in the year.
