New PSP RPG has you playing as the villain


RPG bosses are pretty cool. Not only can they summon foreign planets to crash into their enemies, they can send out hordes of minions to go after potential do-gooders. But, it seems like they're prone to getting murdered by teams of three or four adolescents bent on taking away their treasure. No more!

A new RPG is being prepared for the PSP. Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaiki da (or as IGN has translated it "For a Hero, You're Pretty Impudent") has you playing as the villain. As the Demon Lord, you must create a dungeon and dispatch monsters to get rid of any heroes that try to get in your way. Apparently, all fighting is done automatically, which makes this game stray very far from its RPG roots. Fascinating.

Over time, your dungeon and minions will grow stronger -- but so will your opponents. This inventive twist on RPG gameplay is set to hit Japan on December 6th. We can't wait to find out more.
