The insanely titled PSP action game Rengoku II: The Stairway to H.E.A.V.E.N. is due in Europe this October.

Players take on the role of a "battle android" called A.D.A.M. who becomes trapped in a "mysterious tower filled with fearsome enemies".

Perhaps unsurprisingly for a battle android, players must kill the crap out of eight floors of bad guys, armed with weapons that can be tweaked into more than 300 different combinations.

Using the seven deadly sins as inspiration for the, erm, eight levels, Rengoku II will also feature character designs from a chap named Jun Suemi. Who we're sure you'll remember got his crayons out for games such as Firehawk, Silpheed and the Wizardry series.

There's also M.U.L.T.I.P.L.A.Y.E.R. modes in the offering, with four players going head-to-head, the ability to share sections of the game with those too poor to buy it, and downloadable maps, weapons and items.

So, if you missed Rengoku: The Tower of Purgatory, feel free to knock yourself out with the sequel this October.
