New Rurouni Kenshin Game for the PSP (Updated)

Namco Bandai is releasing a new Rurouni Kenshin fighting game for the PSP. Entitled Rurouni Kenshin: Saisen, the game is set to be released next spring.

The last Rurouni Kenshin fighting game was released for the Playstation 2 in 2006 to tie-in with the re-release of the manga in a special 22-volume Kanzenban edition in Japan. The new release of the manga featured some new cover art by author Nobuhiro Watsuki as well as re-imagined character design art as an added bonus.

Although there is still no word about the rumored live-action film adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin that was spread across several Japanese blogs last summer, it is nice to see some new project associated with the beloved series.

11/11: Added another scan showing a bit more of the game. Seeing new images of Kaoru and Yahiko make me really wish this was an announcement for a new anime project rather than a video game.
