The first of two Battle Spirits conversions hits the PSP in November.

 

Last week, Namco Bandai announced a PSP conversion of the Battle Spirits trading card game and anime. Actually scratch that. It announced two conversions of the franchise, and both are for the PSP.

Of the two, Battle Spirits Kiseki no Hasha appears to be the farther along. It's so far along, in fact, that Namco Bandai was able to provide a bunch of screenshots and first video footage today.

As detailed last week, this particular conversion of the franchise is an action battle game in which you move around 3D fields and summon spirits to attack your foes. In the game's story mode, you explore town, moving between areas like your school, the park, and the shopping arcade.

Battles pit you against a variety of rival characters. Using points that you've earned in battle, you can acquire additional cards which can be used to create your very own deck.

The game features two original main characters, Seiya Muteki and Renga. However, Bashin and his buddies from the current Battle spirits anime also appear in the game, to be joined by Dan, the main character from the new anime which kicks off on September 13.

Namco Bandai also announced some promotional items for the game today. All buyers will receive a promotional card. Additionally, early buyers will get another bonus: the Battle Spirits Kiseki no Hasha Original Starter Kit.
