Armored Core 3: Portable Now Available For PSP Via PSN

FromSoftware announced today that the portable version of the famed giant-robot game, Armored Core is now available for PSP users. The game sports some kick-butt customizable robots, more missions worth counting, and enough variations in firepower to make any gun-totting mech-fan happy.

According to the press release…

In Armored Core 3 Portable, players battle as members of the mercenary organization “Raven,” piloting customizable mecha Armored Core (AC) units. The ACs are customizable with different weapons and machine parts that can be reconfigured as necessary to complete a variety of combat-intensive missions.

The game also has some party-mode play for Ad Hoc use, and did I happen to mention that the graphics aren’t too shabby either? Well, they aren’t…just in case you were wondering. I mean, this isn’t the Nintendo DS, anyway.

You can check out a full list of the game’s features below, which are quite impressive for a handheld game. Armored Core 3: Portable is currently available for the PSP for $14.99.
