Zombie Tycoon reanimates PSP minis movement today


Just when we were really starting to wonder, Frima Studio dropped a note on PlayStation Blog to cease our concern. A new PSP mini, Frima's Zombie Tycoon, will be released later today as part of SCEA's weekly PSN update. Zombie Tycoon breaks a four-week dry spell for minis releases in North America and is the first new mini since the massive PSN update that coincided with the launch of PSP Go on October 1. [Correction: Zombie Tycoon is the first new announced mini since the October 1 update. There have been a few mini releases that have appeared on the PlayStation Store despite not being mentioned in SCEA's official release listings.]

"Let's be clear, Zombie Tycoon isn't a port from a phone game, it's a whole new strategy game designed specifically for PSP," executive producer Martin Brouard proclaimed on the European PlayStation Blog. "This unique tale of intrigue and betrayal spans over 10 challenging levels, allowing you to attack humans AND the places they call home."

Zombie Tycoon isn't priced like a phone game, either. At $7.99 (£3.99/€4.99), this particular mini is on par with previous minis' costs, which have been the topic of much discussion. Perhaps you'll form a value judgment of your own after checking out the Zombie Tycoon trailer posted after the break.
