Developed and published by {{Capcom}} for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, the original game wasn't as big a success in the United States as it was in Japan. However, its portable sequels are among the most popular games available for the PSP, and subsequent sequels have been released on the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}, [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP]], UsefulNotes/WiiU, and UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS.
