How will this work on the psp, can you really control up to 20 squads at the same time?(just had to ask, sounds pretty heavy for a psp system.) :?
Anyhow this will be an exiting game, can't wait to get my hands on this.

It is the same basic scenarios from Legion Arena, though there are some tweaks for play balance.

No, unfortunately Sony decided they didn't want the game to release in the USA. Once they decide that there is nothing we can do about it. The only way to get the game in the US is to order from our site and we'll export it to you.
