Bloober Team, the developer responsible for the charming Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder on the PSN says it is currently developing a launch title for the NGP. The studio was also responsible for the tactical PSP Mini Future Fight.
Let’s hope this NGP title comes along quicker than Bloober Team's "Zombies on a Plane” horror title Last Flight on WiiWare, because that game’s been in limbo forever.

Cracow, Poland– April 18, 2011– Bloober Team, an innovative and experienced developer in the heart of Europe, has been tapped by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe to develop a launch title for its upcoming new handheld, currently codenamed the Next Generation Portable Entertainment System (NGP).
“Obviously, it’s quite a tremendous honor to be included in the initial, day-one launch titles for such an impressive piece of new hardware as the NGP,” said Piotr Babieno, President of Bloober Team.“SCEE has been extremely interested in our title since we first showed it off, and have been more than accommodating getting us everything we need to make a great game. The NGP is a truly revolutionary piece of tech and being one of the first to develop on it has been both a tremendous joy and privilege.”
Babieno and the rest of Bloober Team have thus far marveled at how receptive and flexible the development has been on Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.’s Next Generation Portable Entertainment System (NGP).“After spending some time with the NGP SDK and trying a few tricks and shortcuts, we’re honestly floored at what they were able to cram in there,” Babieno added.“SCE is really taking a developer-centric approach this time around to give us and the other choice developers ideal conditions for both software and business development. We’re thrilled that our title will be included in the launch of what is sure to be a successful platform.”
