ESRB says Eye of Judgment PSP is a go for US
Even though there has been no official announcement of a North American release for the PSP version of Eye of Judgment, the ESRB has pretty much confirmed it with a new listing for the game. Hit the jump for some details and screenshots.

So far, what we know about the game comes mostly from Sony Europe. It won’t use physical cards and will instead come with all of the cards available in the PS3 version along with 30 more downloadable ones. There’s also multiplayer support for up to two players via both adhoc and infrastructure modes.
No telling when Eye of Judgment: Legends will hit retail, but it currently has a Q1 2010 release window in Europe. The US release should slot in quite nicely in that time frame. Japan, on the other hand, will get it in March 2010.
Here’s what the ratings board has to say about the game:
This is a strategy game in which players engage in turn-based card battles on a grid-like playing field. Players take turns selecting cards to summon fantastical creatures (e.g., dragons, elves, ninjas, dwarves, witches, giant lizards) on a game board. Creatures use magic spells, axe strikes, and sword slashes to attack enemy units on the board; card characters disappear in a plume of purple light when defeated (i.e., when their life points reach zero). Still-frame cutscenes add a dark tone to the relatively minimal depictions of violence; for example, “the tremors of earth soaked in the Children of Earth in blood.” The text also contains the expletives “damn” and “hell” and a direct reference to alcohol (e.g., a “Drunken Demolition” card reads, “I wish I drowned to death in a sea of liquor”); one character is depicted with a lit cigar in his hand and mouth. Some cards depict female monstersÂ—grey demon-like figuresÂ—in skin tight outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage.
Cleavage! I wonder what the ESRB description would be like if Queen’s Blade: Spiral Chaos somehow gets a US release.
