New Retail Releases: Metroid Prime Federation Force, Style Savvy 3, F1 2016, More


It seems like everyone who talks about Nintendo nowadays wants to talk about the NX, but the consolemaker is still releasing games for the 3DS, including this week’s launch of Metroid Prime: Federation Force and Style Savvy: Fashion Forward.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force is a co-op-focused spinoff from the main Metroid series and won’t star intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran. Instead, players will join up with a squad of Galactic Federation Marines as they do battle with Metroids and Space Pirates on a distant planet.

Meanwhile, Style Savvy: Fashion Forward is the third game in Nintendo’s fashion franchise, and it’ll give budding fashionistas the chance to design the perfect outfit with thousands of choices.

Steeping away from Nintendo, Codemasters will release F1 2016 for the PS4 and Xbox One. The latest racing simulation from the British developer follows the FIA Formula One World Championship, and includes 21 tracks and 22 drivers.

Finally this week, Krillbite will release a retail version of Among the Sleep for the PS4. Among the Sleep is a first-person game where players take control of a young toddler investigating the strange noises in his house. Is it the Bogeyman? or is it just a shadow?

The real question is, when you’re a toddler, does it make a difference?

Yakuza 5, Earth Defense Force 4.1, Earth Defense Force 2, more added to PS Store

earthdefenseforce-logoYakuza 5 was originally released in Japan in 2012, and three years later it has finally made its way to North America courtesy of the PlayStation Store. Faster than you can say, “just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in,” Kazuma Kiryu has been pulled away from his quiet life as a taxi driver and back into the Japanese underworld in the PS3 game.

Also available to download this week is a pair of bug-hunting games in the Earth Defense Force franchise. Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair brings the series to the PS4 for the first time in an enhanced and expanded remake of Earth Defense Force 2025. Meanwhile, Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders From Planet Space for the Vita brings the second game in the series to North America for the first time. EDF! EDF! EDF!

You won’t find any giant bugs in Among the Sleep for the PS4, but the psychological horror game does feature frightening images from a two year old child’s vivid imagination. And finally this week, there’s nothing imaginary about the zombie outbreak occurring in Guns, Gore, & Cannoli, a cartoony side-scroller set in the gangster’s paradise of the 1930s.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

Toddler-Horror game Among the Sleep coming to PS4


Today, we learned that the unique horror game Among the Sleep is coming to the PlayStation 4 thanks to an announcement on the PlayStation Blog.

Described as “Toddler-Horror” by developer Krillbite Studio, Among the Sleep lets you play as a two-year-old with a wild imagination and a limited range of movement.

Best of all, the game will include support for Sony’s Project Morpheus headset.

Ole Andreas Jordet, Krillbite’s CEO, said the game will be coming to the PC and PS4 soon. But if you can’t wait you can try the demo on PC platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux) or you can watch the latest gameplay trailer.
