It’s been a while since there has been news of any new PSP games, so rejoice in the fact that Aksys Games are nulling Sony‘s silly idea of it not being worth further development due to piracy by announcing a retro-style action RPG called Jikandia: The Timeless Land.

I remember System 3 from years ago when they made the awesome International Karate I spent so many hours playing on the good ol’ Speccy (Sinclair ZX Spectrum, to be precise), now they’re back with a slightly delayed Williams Pinball Classics.
