It’s nice enough that EA have made the effort to make the PSP edition of Army of Two: The 40th Day unique to the system, but two little goodies added into the debut trailer make the deal seem even sweeter. The first minute or so of this trailer show that this version takes obvious inspiration from the old school shooters like the Contra games, a series that EA Montreal’s Alex Hutchinson compared with this game a few months back. It’s at the end of the footage that the real treat drops, as two quick shots of Isaac Clarke from Dead Space and Dante from Dante’s Inferno reveal them to be playable characters in the game.
This isn’t the first guest appearance Isaac will be making either; we found out a few days ago that he’ll also be in the European collector’s edition of Dante’s Inferno. I wonder if Rios and Salem are set for the next entrance in the MySims series?
All editions of Army of Two: The 40th Day hit January 8th in Europe, and January 12th in America. We recently got some hands on time with both the console and PSP editions of the game if you want to know more.
