Pangya: Fantasy Golf coming to PSP
MMO cult goes offline and outside.
Tomy has announced that it's to release Pangya: Fantasy Golf for the PSP, a conversion of the hit massively multiplayer PC golf game.
Just like the MMO, PSP Pangya will have an extravagant cartoon style and an emphasis on character and equipment customisation - although this time you'll pay for it with virtual cash in an in-game shop, rather than with real money on the internet. There are nine fairways to explore.
Although it has a Story mode (as well as Free Round, Licence, and Tournament modes), it's not an entirely offline experience either, with support for 8-player networked individual and team tournaments.
The game is being developed by the makers of the original Pangya, Ntreev Soft. It's not the first time they've strayed off the PC: we've also had Pangya! Golf With Style on the Wii, although Eurogamer's resident Pangyaholic Keza rated that a lowly 6/10 to the original game's 8/10.
Pangya: Fantasy Golf will be released this summer.
