Trailer for K-ON! PSP game revealed

The rumors are true! Sega, the makers of the wildy popular PSP rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA, are turning their musical talents towards making a K-ON! game. Check out the trailer below!

Like its Vocaloid-themed predecessor, K-ON! After School Live!! is basically a rhythm game set to the music of the hit anime. You can play as any of the five Houkago Tea Time band members, either solo or with up to four other friends. (Dibs on Ritsu!) The game is slated for a September 30th release in Japan, and priced at ¥6090 or approximately $68 USD. Sadly, there's little chance of it being licensed in the English-speaking world, so us stateside K-ON! fans will have to import it.

This news is certainly exciting, but I'm still holding out hope for a DS K-ON! game. In my opinion, Nintendo's handheld system is more suited to rhythm-based musical gameplay. Plus, just think of the possibilities with the touchscreen...

Ew, not like that. Perverts. >_<

    *as not having pervy thoughts* o.e
    So many reasons to buy a PSP. :/ The new KH game, and now this.
    I highly doubt I’ll be able to get this.
    But I agree; on a DS this game [or something smiliar] would be much easier to play.
    Plus I’ve heard PSP’s are less durable than a DS anyway?

    They should have just made a Rock band or Guitar Hero style game. I mean, I like rhythm games as much as the next guy, but K-On! is practically DESIGNED for a band game!
