New Retail Releases: Lego Star Wars: Force Awakens, Star Ocean 5, Grand Kingdom, More


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…)

Umbrella Corps, Mighty No. 9, Pac-Man 256, more added to PS Store

With most of the world still recovering from the E3 Expo, Sony dropped a big batch of new games onto the PlayStation Store yesterday.

First up is Capcom Resident Evil-themed team shooter, Umbrella Corps. Available to download now for the PS4, players will battle it out with a second team of mercenaries, all the while avoiding the shambling undead who are also in the arena.

Speaking of the shambling undead, Tequila Works has brought their side-scrolling zombie, Deadlight, to the PS4 as Deadlight: Director’s Cut. In addition to enhanced graphics, the Director’s Cut will include improved gameplay and controls, and extra game modes.

The retro vibe of Deadlight carries through to another pair of new releases this week, Mighty No. 9 and Pac-Man 256. After more than three years in development, Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 is ready for release as a PS4 + PS3 Cross-Buy title, and fans will finally get the chance to see if his Mega Man successor can live up to the hype. Meanwhile, Pac-Man 256 brought the infinite maze of the mobile hit to the PS4 for the first time.

Finally this week, Grand Kingdom is NIS America’s latest strategy RPG and it’s available to download for the PS4 and Vita.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new release) can be found after the break. And don’t forget, a complete rundown of new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

NIS America will bring Grand Kingdom to PS4, Vita this Summer

NIS America has announced they’re teaming up with Spike Chunsoft to bring Grand Kingdom to the PS4 and Vita this Summer. Grand Kingdom is a tactical RPG where players will be able to align with one of four factions as they attempt to reunite a fractured realm:

With an impressive battle system that combines fast-paced action with strategic planning, and featuring robust character creation and customization options, Grand Kingdom is a Tactical RPG unlike any on the market today. After the fall of the once-prosperous Uldein Empire over one hundred years ago, the Four Great Nations now wage war to claim dominion over the Resonail continent.

As the leader of a mercenary squad, players will assemble a team to lead across a battle-scarred continent to complete contracts for each nation. Players may also hop online to form an exclusive contract with one of the Four Great Nations, and participate in war with other players for the future of Resonail.

But remember—in this new age of war, there is only room for one Grand Kingdom.

NIS America has launched an official website for the game, as well as released a teaser trailer, which has been embedded above.
