Polyphony Digital’s Kazunori Yamauchi has reiterated plans to release a PlayStation Portable iteration of the popular Gran Turismo series, confirming that the game will be resumed once development on the first PS3 entry has been completed.

Speaking in an interview with GamePro, Yamauchi stated that the team would continue with the game "probably after GT5".

"We are working on it, and we will get around to it eventually," he explained.

Announced early on in the PSP’s life cycle as Gran Turismo 4 Mobile, Polyphony announced it had put the project on hold in an effort to concentrate on the PS3 entry in the series; Gran Turismo 5.

Previous claims from the developer last year cited the game had reached "the stage where a GT4 equivalent runs on the PSP".

Stay tuned for more developments on the title here at PSU as they become available.
