No... it isn’t April 1 and you didn’t misread the post title above. Colonel Sanders, of KFC fame, is headed to Phantasy Star Portable 2
as an in-game character. The PSP version of the game, entitled Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity
, will see the old-man himself added to the game thanks to a promotional partnership between KFC and Sega.
The character has only been announced for Japan thus far, but is likely to make its way over to the US after the title is released here. It has been reported that the Colonel will accompany players on their adventure(s) through portions of the game. This is just crazy, but also awesome at the same time.
