The 3rd Birthday dated for late March

Square Enix’s heavily anticipated PSP title, The 3rd Birthday, will launch on March 29, the company’s announced today. The game is a story-driven action-RPG backed by a cast of celebrity voice actors.

Aya Brea, protagonist and focal-point to the story, is voiced by Yvonne Strahovski, who some of you may know from NBC’s Chuck. Jensen Ackles, from The CW’s Supernatural, voices the mysterious Kyle Madigan.

“I was immediately interested when Square Enix approached me with the opportunity to play Aya Brea in The 3rd Birthday. I love Aya – she’s strong, driven and ready to take on the world,” said Yvonne Strahovski. “My goal was to bring all of her characteristics to life to really tell her story and create the best experience for all gamers.”

The 3rd Birthday features an all-new story set in a torn-apart New York City, strategic gameplay utilizing the new “Overdrive System,” and the feeling of a “true” action-RPG hybrid.

Look out for it late next month!
