Young Thor trailer is electrically adorable

Thor, like it or not, is going to be the hot new jam of 2011, with thanks in part to the upcoming Thor film. Case in point is the game you see above, the PSP Minis title Young Thor. In no way related to the Thor of Marvel Comics, Young Thor is a side scrolling beat 'em up that should start the whole Thor thing off. Available for both the PSP and the PS3, it is one of the first Minis titles to be built with both handheld and console in mind.

Looking at the title, it looks like a fairly standard sidescroller, with some cute direction as chibi Thor battles through Midgard and Asgard to save the three Norns: Urd, Skuld and Verdandi. This is all wrapped up in a cheap price for $4.99 and will be available for purchase on July 20. It's priced pretty right, what do you think?
