The games include Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Square Enix’s second shot at an MMORPG; Lost Planet 3, the latest entry in Capcom’s alien ice planet action series; Hatsune Miku Project Diva F, a rhythm game from Sega; Killer Is Dead, the latest game from Suda 51; and Madden NFL 25, EA Sports’ annual prfessional football simulation.
Also available this week is Spelunky, a quirky platformer that comes to the PSN and PS Vita as a Cross-Buy title, and Sweet Fuse: At Your Side, a PSP game where you play as Keiji Inafune’s niece. Sure, why not?
More information on all of these titles (and several others) can be found after the break. And, as always, a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
Are you ready for some football? EA Sports’ annual gridiron game, Madden NFL 25, is in stores for the PS3 and Xbox 360 this week. A next generation version for the PS4 and Xbox One will be available in November.
“Made in Japan” is the theme for the rest of this week’s releases as Square Enix will bring their rebuilt MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn to the PC and, for the first time, the PS3. The psychotically-minded Suda 51 also has a new game this week as XSEED Games will publish his Killer Is Dead for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Finally, Capcom is bringing back the Lost Planet series in Lost Planet 3 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
More new releases can be found after the break. (more…)
Capcom has announced that they’re bringing four games to this year’s E3 Expo, which begins this Tuesday, June 11. The company has also promised that they have a “big surprise” to share with fans.
Here’s Capcom’s E3 2013 lineup (sans the big surprise):
- DuckTales: Remastered (PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)
- Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)
- Lost Planet 3 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies (3DS)
What do you think Capcom’s “big surprise” will be?
Lost Planet 3 pushed back to August 27
Capcom announced that their sci-fi action shooter, Lost Planet 3, will miss its original June release date, and will now be landing in August instead.
At the end of a long press release detailing Capcom’s plans for the year, they snuck in that Lost Planet 3 will now be releasing August 27 in North America, and August 30 in Europe. Eurogamer is reporting the game’s delay should be put down to “business reasons.”
When Lost Planet 3’s new release date comes around, the game will be launching on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
Capcom has announced that Lost Planet 3 will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on June 25 (June 28 in Europe). The publisher has also released a new trailer for Lost Planet 3, highlighting the Snow Pirates that populate E.D.N. III:
The trailer continues the story of Jim Peyton’s time on E.D.N. III as a NEVEC employee seeking out further sources of the planet’s energy supply T-Eng. During one of these missions, Jim comes under attack from E.D.N. III’s indigenous Akrid, causing his Utility Rig to fall down an icy fissure, leaving him unconscious and injured. Jim wakes to find himself in what appears to be a secret base, hidden beneath the planet’s frozen surface. On discovering he was rescued by one of the base’s inhabitants, Mira, the daughter of Snow Pirate leader, So’ichi, Jim realizes that NEVEC are not the only human inhabitants of E.D.N. III.
And if you’ve got tickets to this year’s PAX East show (March 22-24), you could swing by the Capcom booth to give a demo of Lost Planet 3 a try.
