A PlayStation Store page for Lucasfilm Games’ Star Wars: Battlefront II went live earlier today before being taken down. The listing states that the game is an emulated PSP title and that it will be available for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, this means that the game will be a PlayStation Classic title and will be available for PlayStation Plus Premium / Deluxe subscribers.
The game is one of many titles that have been rumored to join the PlayStation Classics lineup. Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness, Dino Crisis, Ridge Racer 2, Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny, Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth, Resistance: Retribution and Harvest Moon: Back to Nature have all either been listed or rated for the PS4 and PS5.
The games could likely join PlayStation Premium as part of the December 2022 update which is scheduled to be revealed in the coming weeks.

This title has been converted from the PSP (PlayStation Portable) version to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles and provides newly added features. Consequently, there may be times where the title plays differently from the PSP (PlayStation Portable) version, or where some features may cause the title to not function properly. This version does not support the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system’s peripherals, therefore some functionality may not be available.
