Ore No Shikabane Wo Koete Yuke PSP Remake Announced
That's 'Over My Dead Body' to you - no really, that's the title!
03.30.11 - 4:28 PM

Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke (Over My Dead Body) originally saw a PlayStation release back in 1999 in Japan. The main character, offspring of some 'legendary hero,' becomes cursed (after fighting with a demon) with an affliction that has him age 50 times faster than normal - only giving him two years to live. His children then suffer from the same curse. Making their way through many a labyrinth, the family seeks out to defeat the demon and rid themselves of the curse. The original is downloadable from the Japanese PlayStation Network for 600 yen.

Though they recently suggested it with a teaser site earlier this month (I'd link it but appears to have been taken down for now), Oreshika's remake has been confirmed by Sony - and it's for the PSP. This version will add new characters and scenarios, but also get a graphical improvement, an updated strategic battle system and the fields will see seasonal changes. Families can also create their own weapons as a memento to pass down through generations. There is also mention in this week's Famitsu of the ability to import save data from the PSone game, and some kind of ad-hoc feature that wasn't expanded upon.

Recently, game designer Shouji Masuda also talked about what direction to take the series in, which of course opens up the possibility of a sequel.

Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke, which is being worked on by Alfa System (the developers of the PSone title), is currently 50% complete and does not yet have a Japanese release date.
