The PlayStation Store received a big update this week, so let’s dive right in…
We start things off with Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens (PS4, PS3, Vita), a Lego-ized adaptation of last year’s blockbuster continuation of the Star Wars saga. Players will be able to take control of Han, Chewie, Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and many others as they recreate the film and go on “New Adventures” inspired by the Expanded Universe.
A second space adventure is available to PS4 owners this week as Square Enix has released Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness. It’s the fifth entry in the long-running Star Ocean series, and development on the RPG was once again handled by Tri-Ace.
Players looking for something a bit more earthboind will be able to download 7 Days to Die (PS4), a “survival crafting” game that asks players to build a shelter and survive for as long as they can against a rampaging zombie horde. The similarly-themed Resident Evil 5 is a PS4 remake of the zombie franchise’s first co-op adventure with improved graphics and new multiplayer options.
Speaking of remakes, God Eater Resurrection is an enhanced remake of 2011’s Gods Eater Burst, and it brings the monster-hunting franchise to the PS4 and Vita for the first time.
Vita owners will have a few more choices this week thanks to the release of Zero Time Dilemma, the trilogy-capping third entry in the Zero Escape series. It’s joined on the PlayStation Store this week by the surprise release of Adventures of Mana, which is a remake of 1991’s Final Fantasy Adventure.
As expected, WB Games saved the best for last and released one more Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens Character Trailer today, this time focusing on Han Solo and Chewbacca. There’s probably no deeper meaning behind a scene showing everyone’s favorite smuggler picking off a pair of Stormtroopers with a blaster, but it sure does look cool, doesn’t it?
Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is available today for the 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
If you’re old enough to remember the 90s heyday of multiplayer “action-puzzle” games, then Tumblestone should be on your radar. A match-3 puzzle game similar to Bust-A-Move, Tumblestone was by The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild, and it’ll be released for the PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, and Xbox One on July 12. Best of all, if you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you’ll be to download it for free as part of the Games With Gold program.
Tumblestone will include a massive Story Mode, online and local multiplayer modes, a trio of arcade-style modes, and a Quest Mode with hundreds of unique Quests to complete.
And be sure to watch Tumblestone’s “Cinematic” Trailer, it’s embedded above and absurdly fun. Though it doesn’t look so crazy when you compare it to the PAX East “Reactions” trailer, which is available after the break.
Are you excited for the Minecraft movie? I hope you can keep your excitement going for the next three years, as Warner Bros. announced today that Minecraft: The Movie will open in theaters on May 24, 2019. And if you need to really immerse yourself in Minecraft’s blocky world, the movie will also be released in 3D and IMAX.
We still don’t know much else about Minecraft: The Movie (and even that’s just a working title), but Mojang COO Vu Bui had this to say on the developer’s official website:
Yes, that might seem like a long time away, but it just so happens to be the right amount of time to make it completely awesome. And we all want an awesome Minecraft movie, right?
Rob McElhenney, Mac from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, has been tapped to direct the adaptation, so hopefully he brings the same sense of zaniness to Minecraft: The Movie.
Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released in less than 48 hours, but WB Games and TT Games are still cutting together new Character Trailers for the title, including the newest one starring Rey (with new dialogue from Daisy Ridley).
We still don’t know if her last name is Skywalker or Kenobi or Solo, but we do know that Rey has natural Force abilities, and you can see them all in this trailer. Watch as she uses her staff to disable a foe, blasts away at a few Stormtroopers, and gives Kylo Ren something to cry about.
Lego Star Wars: Force Awakens will be released for the 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on June 28.
We’re closing out the month of June with a big batch of new releases…
The biggest is most definitely the game with the planet-sized laser gun, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will be available this week for the 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Players will be able to relive all the action from the 2015 space opera, as well as “New Adventures” that fill in details you may have been wondering about. (Just how did C-3PO get that red arm?).
A pair of RPGs will also be available this week to fans of the genre busy for a long time. Square Enix will launch the fifth game in the Star Ocean franchise, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, exclusively for the PS4, while NIS America has strategized a plan to release tactical RPG Grand Kingdom for the PS4 and Vita.
Players looking for something a bit off the beaten path may want to explore Zero Time Dilemma, the third and final entry in the Zero Escape franchise. The adventure game will be released for the 3DS, PC, and Vita, and takes place between the events of Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward.
Finally this week, Wii U owners will finally get the chance to try out Terraria, the side-scrolling crafting and exploration title from Re-Logic.
A complete list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)
Yacht Club Games is still toiling away at Shovel Knight‘s heaping helping of post-launch content, and after giving us a quick glimpse at the King Knight campaign a few weeks ago, the developer has returned with an extended profile of Specter Knight’s upcoming adventure.
Using a series of GIFs to illustrate Specter Knight’s moveset on their official website, Yacht Club Games seems to be mining another 8-bit classic, Ninja Gaiden, for inspiration. Specter Knight can slash with his trusty scythe, be he also has a lightning quick dash that can be performed on the ground or in the air. The character’s nimble form will also allow him to wall run to reach greater heights.
Yacht Club Games is developing the add-on campaigns for Specter Knight and King Knight simultaneously, though Specter Knight’s will launch first. The team isn’t ready to talk release dates just yet, but both campaigns will be available for free, alongside the also in-development Body Swap Mode and Battle Mode.
Finally, Yacht Club announced that Shovel Knight will be available on store shelves for the Vita soon. The limited physical version is in production at FanGamer and will be released in early October.
