God of War: Ghost of Sparta has been announced for the PSP so you can look forward to hacking off more limbs and ripping eye balls out on the tube/bus/plane. Ghost of Sparta will be a prequel to GOW II and III taking place after GOW I and will explain more of Kratos’ past. Once again the PSP GOW game is being made by Ready At Dawn Studios, in close collaboration with SCEA’s Santa Monica Studio who made the PS2 and PS3 entries into the series.

The story this time;
As for the storyline, this new adventure will serve as a prequel of sorts, picking up where God of War left off. Ghost of Sparta tells the story of Kratos’ ascension to power as the God of War. In his quest to rid the nightmares that haunt him, Kratos must face his dark past to prove his worthiness to the Gods — a journey that will reveal the origins of lost worlds and finally answer long-awaited questions about Kratos’ tattoo, scar, and family.
The official website for the game can be found at http://www.godofwar.com/spartansstandtall/ So yes, this was what all the mystery was about. I quite enjoyed Chains of Olympus although i found some of the powers to be a bit lacklustre and the controls took a little getting used to. I’m hoping they adopt III’s method of handling the magic and weapons to allow a bit of easier control. Here’s the rest of the screens;
