OVERVIEW
Let your past catch up with you in this unique new offering on the PlayStation®Portable (PSP®). Developed by SCE Japan Studios and Artoon Inc., echoshift introduces the new gaming concept, “Self Co-Op” (playing with your past/history), while bringing a fun and different twist to the puzzle genre.

A franchise spin-off of the of the previously released PlayStation®Network (PSN) hit, echochrome™, echoshift shares echochrome’s unique puzzle concept, however brings a new gaming style as well as visual appeal to players who are tasked to strategically maneuver a mannequin-like figure through each level while solving intricate puzzles within a certain amount of time. Because the puzzles are impossible to complete on your own the first time through, players will need to cooperate with “ghosts” of their previous attempts to help clear each level. The more the player starts over, the more ghosts appear. It is up to the player to strategically use these multiple ghosts to help them through the level and reach the goal.

Players will be challenged to solve over 30 different puzzle types, which include moving objects, doors controlled by switches, and crumbling floors, all within nine themed worlds (each will have five levels) based on different puzzle concepts and types. Players who master all 45 levels can look forward to additional, downloadable levels, which will be available on PSN at a later date.
