The PSP version of Star Wars Battlefront 2 has popped up on the PlayStation Store, implying that it’ll soon be added to PlayStation Plus Premium’s selection of PSP games.
Although Star Wars Battlefront 2 has had one of the greatest recovery stories in gaming history (yes, I said it), there are many fans of the series who long for the simpler days. Days when Battlefront 2 didn’t conjure up images of loot boxes, sequel content, and no Galactic Conquest mode. Well, looks like PlayStation has something in mind for those nostalgic fans as it looks like Star Wars Battlefront 2’s PSP port is coming soon.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 being added to the PlayStation Store was first spotted by ResetEra user andshrew, who shared screenshots and details of the listing, along with its background, logo, and some screenshots. According to andshrew, the listing seemingly went live on the PlayStation Store too early, although it has since been taken down.
Considering the timing of Battlefront 2 popping up on the PlayStation Store, it seems likely that it’ll be one of the games added to PlayStation Plus Premium this month. Nothing official has come from Sony yet, but it’s likely that we’ll hear something about it soon considering we’re already two days into the month and the listing seemed to be pretty complete.
The listing for Battlefront 2 also reveals some of the ways that the PSP version has been improved, although they seem to be much the same as other PSP games on the service. The listing reads says, “Experience Star Wars Battlefront II (Classic, 2005) originally released on the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system, enhanced with up-rendering, rewind, quick save, and custom video filters”.
It’s a little strange that Sony would choose to add the PSP version of Star Wars Battlefront 2 to the PlayStation Store instead of the PS2 original, especially considering the PSP received its own Battlefront in the form of Renegade Squadron. Still, it’s at least something for those wanting to revisit the Star Wars classic in some of its former glory.
