The 3rd Birthday confirmed for Europe

Parasite Eve spin-off on PSP.

Square Enix has told Eurogamer that PSP game The 3rd Birthday is coming to Europe.

Previously the game had been confirmed only for the US.

When The 3rd Birthday will arrive here, however, remains unknown.

The 3rd Birthday is the third game in the Parasite Eve series. It doesn't share the canonical name because 3rd Birthday is a spin-off.

So, whereas Parasite Eve was a survival-horror, The 3rd Birthday prefers being a shooter.

The idea appears to be shooting monsters while jumping from body to body, a bit like Agent Smith in The Matrix. The E3 video for The 3rd Birthday below demonstrates this.
