Hoplite Research has finally confirmed what GDN has been saying all along, (even when they denied it) Myst is coming to the PSP on US shores.

As part of a publishing agreement with Cyan Worlds, Myst will be released on Thursday July 16th through the Playstation Network.

The game takes advantage of the PSP system’s glorious 16-million color 16:9 screen as it catapults the player into a universe of mystery, discovery, and mind-bending puzzles.

Utterly alone and without encountering another single living soul on a mysterious island, the player sets out to explore its grandeur and unlock its secrets. A chilling tale of injustice unfolds, expanding beyond all boundaries of space and time. Quickly, though, it becomes clear every action can somehow help unfortunate individuals trapped somewhere in a parallel dimension. The Myst adventure is like no other, tantalizing with its unique combination of lavish environments, puzzles, mazes, and a sizzling underlying drama which steadily reveals itself to the player

For some of us older staffers here at GDN, we are ecstatic to see this title finally arrive in the states. Stay tuned as we will be reviewing this game.

We were just told that the game is the same as the original, but will include the New Rime Age that was originally planned for the game, but never released.
