237w ago - SCEA Marketing Specialist Brian Chou has introduced Echoshift for Sony's PSP console today, as follows:

I'm here to talk about [Register or Login to view links], an upcoming PlayStation Portable title that brings a fun and different twist to the puzzle genre.

Echoshift introduces a new gaming concept where you will have to play with your past actions. Each level features crazy puzzles and obstacles that must be overcome in order to reach its exit door. You have a set amount of time to reach each level's exit, and your actions are recorded as you play through the level, creating an "echo" of your past.

If time runs out before you can complete the level, you start over from the beginning alongside your echo. The echo will repeat any actions you took before, which you can use to your advantage this time around to help clear obstacles you couldn't by yourself! Cooperate with your echoes to climb platforms, clear gaps, and reach switches that you couldn't before.

The levels are filled with so many different puzzle gimmicks that you'll have to create multiple echoes to reach an exit. Whenever you start over, any echoes you've created will appear at the same time.

It is up to you...
