Moon Diver, Free Realms, Rush ‘N Attack on PlayStation Store this week

It’s another huge week for PlayStation Store updates.

Yesterday, Sony added seven PlayStation 3 games to the store including Split/Secend, the reality TV racer; Rush’N Attack: Ex-Patriot, a new take on Konami’s other side-scrolling shooter series; Chime Super Deluxe, an enhanced version of the popular puzzle game; Sonic The Hedgehog, the first game from Sega’s signature speedster; Free Realms, the free-to-play MMORPG; Moon Diver, a new sword-swinging side-scroller from the creator of Strider; and Episode 2, “Get Tannen!”, of Back To The Future: The Game. Wow. That’s quite a list.

The portable PlayStation Store also got a big update this week as four PSP games were added. They include new releases WWE All-Stars, The 3rd Birthday and Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky as well as a PSP release of Dragon’s Lair.

Moon Diver coming March 29 to PSN, a part of Spring Fever

There’s no word on the Xbox Live Arcade version yet, but Moon Diver, the latest sidescrolling action game from Kouchi Yotsui of Strider fame, is coming to the PlayStation Store on March 29. There’s no price announced either, but expect the usual $15 we see for titles like this. For more information on this potentially insane game, as well as trailers and screenshots, be sure to check out our media blowout from last month.

Trailers, Screenshots, and Artwork, oh my! Media blowout on PSN/XBLA title Moon Diver

Strider Hiryu, regrettably absent from Marvel vs. Capcom 3, starred in some of the best 2D sidescrolling action games of the 90’s, and now game designer Kouchi Yotsui is returning to redefine the genre with Moon Diver (which you may remember as Necomachina, the name it had when it was announced). Developed by Feelplus and published by Square Enix, the game centers around a group of specially trained ninjas as they attempt to take back the planet from a boy who has given life to inanimate objects, including bridges, trains, and entire cities, which now besiege the globe. Players engage in insane platforming and combat either solo or with up to four friends in co-op to vanquish their enemies. The game even incorporates elements of the Faust legend, (the boy’s name is Faust and he got his powers from Mephistopheles) which pleases my counter-Enlightenment sensibilities.

Hit the break for a full media blowout, including screenshots, artwork, and the visceral gameplay in action with a trailer. There’s no announced release date, but you can bet Moon Diver will be one to watch. (more…)
