has announced today that on September 29, 2009 MotorStorm Arctic Edge for PSP will be hitting stores in UMD form.
The game will also be available for purchase on 10/1/09 via PSN, to quote:
Eager to blast the rugged Alaskan terrain with an arsenal of offroad vehicles? Well, wait no more. You can now look forward to snagging MotorStorm Arctic Edge PSP in UMD form on 9/29/09 at a store near you.
The game will also be available for purchase on 10/1/09 as a PSPgo launch title via the PSN and voucher code. The game will be $39.99 on both formats.
Also as we mentioned previously, those who get out there early and pre-order the game will be rewarded with the opportunity to own the exclusive Mirage Rapide rally car, available with two customizable skins and set for top speed racing and drifting.
Even if you don't pre-order, there's still a chance for fans to get the Rally car – the vehicle will be available on the PSN Store for those who buy the game within the first 30 days of launch.
Adding in two new snow-specific vehicles this time around, players will have a total of eight car classes and 12 reversible tracks to negotiate as they battle insane festival drivers trekking through the rugged Alaskan wilderness.
Lastly, folks who have PlayStation 2 consoles and want a little MotorStorm action of their own will be rewarded with MotorStorm: Arctic Edge for the PS2, available in North America later this Fall.
MotorStorm: Arctic Edge on PS2 will offer the same great racing style as the PSP version but will allow friends to jump into split-screen racing action when in multiplayer mode. Continue to check back for more details to come!
