52w ago - Eclipse Games Founder Eduardo Jimenez has announced today that EcoFish is making a PlayStation Mobile splash tomorrow.
Below are the details, to quote: EcoFish is a game I personally wanted to do for a long time. It's based on games from my childhood - games that I loved but for some reason haven't been re-done and re-invented a million times already.
If you liked old-school platformers you'll find lots of new games still being made in that genre, but if you look for games like QiX, Styx or Gal's Panic, you're not likely to find many.
It wasn't hard to convince the rest of the team since they played those classics too and loved the 'genre' as much as I did!
The core mechanic of the game consists of drawing lines starting from the borders of the playable area enclosing parts of it that are 'acquired'. If you enclose an enemy within the area you acquire, it is destroyed. We thought this kind of gameplay would fit particularly well on touchscreens and, of course, the PS Vita.
There are different objectives in every level, such as destroying a concrete enemy, eliminating all enemies, acquiring a certain percentage of the screen, and so on. We have deviated there from the original formula, as well as with the enemies.

There's also a gameplay video below featuring Kratos, from God of War. It looks like the PSP will be getting another great looking fighting game from Namco Bandai Games. The PSP may just have the best portable fighting games.
To quote: SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny is the first portable iteration in the series that promises to deliver its signature weapon-based fighting formula on-the-go.
With SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny's huge roster of warriors, players can battle as one of many returning favorites or new fighters for some nail biting brawls.
Adding depth to the combat, an all new single player mode has been developed that not only challenges a player's reflexes but also improves their fighting skills.
