newreleases020216

Are you ready to save the world soldier? This week’s new release report kicks off with XCOM 2, a PC-exclusive sequel to 2012’s XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Things didn’t go so well for humanity after the end of that game and the aliens took over everything. So it’s up to you, and a merry band of rebels, to ignite a worldwide revolution and take back the Earth. Dismissed!

Also available this week is Gravity Rush Remastered, a PS4 remake of a Vita adventure first released in 2012. Players will take control of Kat, a woman who can manipulate gravity, to save the world from an invading force.

The remainder of this week’s new releases feature a quintet of titles that is each more Japanese than the last…

For example, did you know that Idea Factory has produced six games in their Hyperdimension Neptunia series? The seventh game in the series, Megadimension Neptunia VII, will be released for the PS4 this week. The RPG franchise will actually be making the jump to the PS4 for the first time, and players will be asked to save “Gamindustri” once again.

Nitroplus is a popular producer of visual novels in Japan, and the company recently teamed up with developer Examu and publisher Marvelous to bring their many characters together in a fighting game known as Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel. It’ll be released for the PS4 this week.

Similar to the Go-Bots/Transformers split, the Digimon series has always existed as a budget-priced alternative to Pokemon, but the venerable franchise keeps trucking along and that includes the latest entry, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. Available next week for the PS4, players attempt to take down a band of hackers in cyberspace with the help of their Digimon companions.

Speaking of popular anime franchises, Bandai Namco will release Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 for the PC this week. The latest game starring the foxy ninja (and I mean that literally, the main character is part fox) will also be available for the PS4 and Xbox One next week.

Finally this week, Bandai Namco will also release Tales of Symphonia for the PC. Originally released for the GameCube in 2003, Symphonia will be one of the first games in the Tales series to make its PC debut.

Gravity Rush, MGS HD Collection, Batman: Arkham City, more added to PS Store

This week’s PlayStation Store update is filled with thrills, spills, and chills!

If you’re looking for a thrill, Sony has a pair of Vita games to get your blood pumping: the gravity-defying Gravity Rush and the stealth action of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. A third Vita game, the augmented reality puzzle game PulzAR, is pretty thrilling as well.

If it’s spills you’re looking for, then you’ll definitely want to point your PS3 at the PS3 Full Games section to experience the high-flying theatrics of Batman: Arkham City or the off-road madness of Dirt Showdown. And if you’ve got two left feet like me, there will be plenty of spilling involved in any play session of Just Dance 3.

Finally, the chills are provided by the PSN god game Babel Rising and an Atlus RPG, Gungnir, that’s available on the PSP, a system that has chillingly rose from the dead for one week!

More information on all of these titles can be found after the break and a full listing of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Gravity Rush accelerates into stores on June 12

Ever wish you could walk on walls, fly through the air, and basically control gravity while saving the planet from some monsters? Well your wish has been granted via the Playstation Vita with Gravity Rush, out June 12. Newton would scoff at how easily you’ll be able to bend his laws of physics but appreciate the liberal use of apples in the trailer.

Gravity storms have been tearing apart the world and it is up to a strange girl named Kat, with the inexplicable power to manipulate gravity, to save the population from the requisite hoard of monsters. The distinct, cell-shaded art style looks beautiful and the open world level design is sure to keep you engrossed in the action. Using all the features the Vita has to offer, you can hurl Kat in any direction with a flick of your finger or a tap on either of the screens. Just hold on tight, you don’t want to accidentally flick your shiny new console out the window where it’ll achieve terminal velocity.

You can pick up Gravity Rush this summer on the PSN or as a game card in brick and mortar retailers.
