So far, the PSP2 (or what Sony is calling it currently, the "NGP") seems to be getting a decent chunk of developers and publishers supporting it. In what is still considered by some a risky move to support a portable system that will most likely be abused, like its predecessor, by EULA-violating firmware, yet another developer has raised the white flag in the face of pirates.


Vicious Cycle Software, the people that brought us Puzzle Quest, have announced that their Vicious Engine 2 (Ve2) will be compatible and ready for use with the next Sony portable. Already used as the framework for games like Young Thor and Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond, Vicious Cycle hopes to continue bringing games and licensing their engine for others to use (with emphasis on miniS developers and ease of use).

As of now, Vicious Cycle has not yet announced any titles they have in development for the NGP, but we will let you know as soon as it is announced. Our guess is that it will be a quest involving some puzzles of the match-three variety.
