Lunar: The Silver Star gets PSP remake

A port of the Playstation version this aint--Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star is a full remake of the original Sega CD Lunar.

Lunar: The Silver Star gets PSP remake

In 2000, fans of the original Lunar: The Silver Star were treated to a nice remake for the PS1 entitled Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete which had updated graphics, CG sequences and music. Game Arts is looking to revitalize the original game with a full remake of the Sega CD version, which is currently set for release in Japan. Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star is featured in the latest issue of Japanese game mag Famitsu, with a two-page spread highlighting some of the upgrades the game will feature. Along with a new isometric view, the game will also feature a hand-drawn style for the characters and backgrounds, as well as new music and an expanded story. Though no U.S. release has been set, this seems like a no-brainer for Game Arts. See above for the full spread.

THE VERDICT by Andy Burt Andy Burt's Avatar Woohoo! I loved the original games and the PS1 remake, so call me a fanboy but this is great news; I really hope Game Arts doesn't drop the ball on this one, the popularity of the previous games in the U.S. should cement the remake's release over here.

Ugh.. if they just released the Sega CD version over here I'd be happy with that.. the original was the best imo. Nintendo should allow Sega CD games on the VC if possible.

Lunar is cool, but I don't need another version. I'd also rather have them release Dragon Force if they have the rights. I'd also rather see Sega release Saturn games on VC or a collection on 360. I want Shining Force III, Panzer Dragoon Saga, etc.

god damn thats nice, they need to put out lunar 4, it was cancelled before it had shown the light of day.

saddens me.

though a remake would be good.

I agree to gunstar but not just 360 I would love to see shiningforce 3 go multi platform or guardian heros remake with multi player and get good use out of that arena.

This is sweet I liked Silver Star Collection so I am happy to see to remade with better graphics. I only wish that they would remake Legend of the Dragoon for the PSP with updated graphics. Legend of the Dragoon my favorite by far.
