Nippon Ichi may be working on new 2D platformer for PSP

A brand new "Hero Transformation Project" is coming to PSP. What does that mean? We're not exactly sure either, but a snapshot of this PSP game teaser (via PSP Hyper) shows our spiky-haired friend turning into all sorts of things, ranging from tanks to Prinnies. It looks like Nippon Ichi, creator of the recently released Prinny, may be working hard on yet another PSP game. Good thing, too, as the Prinny platformer -- as devilishly difficult as it is -- is one of the best-looking, sprite-based 2D games we've seen on a handheld.
