Konami America today shipped Rengoku: The Tower of Purgatory for the PSP. The second original PSP game by Konami, Rengoku features an imaginative science-fiction setting with breathtaking graphics and dark, gritty foreboding art created by famed Japanese illustrator Jun Suemi.

Modeled in a compelling blend of Eastern and Western sci-fi fantasy environments, Rengoku places players in a dark and distant future in the role of a well-armed battle android that must fight its way to the pinnacle of a great tower to confront a mysterious foe. Created especially for the PSP portable, Rengoku features immense replay value thanks to the system's wireless technology and the game's four-person multiplayer gameplay.

"By utilizing the system's innovative wireless technology and amazing graphics, Rengoku provides non-stop action with brilliant visuals and delivers an incredible portable gaming experience to consumers," said Wilson Cheng, product manager, Konami Digital Entertainment - America.

Battling through eight massive and distinctly-themed levels, gamers continue to move upward, improving their android's skills, as well as acquiring new weapons and technologies. The dungeon-crawling action with randomized levels and missions also offers tremendous replay value. Players must strategically manage their resources to tackle the missions at hand and achieve long-term goals. Taking full advantage of the PSP portable's capabilities, gamers can trade equipment and items or battle with up to three other players in the action-packed deathmatch mode via the wireless multiplayer connection. In the end, there can be only one master atop the Tower of Purgatory!

Rengoku: The Tower of Purgatory is available exclusively for the PSP portable entertainment system for an SRP of $39.99 and rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB.
