Xbox Store Today: Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto, Knee Deep

A handful of new games have been added to the Xbox Games Store today… and one is a theatrical “swamp noir” and another is an anime-inspired fighting game.

Developed by Prologue Games, Knee Deep is a murder mystery set in the backwater Florida town of Cypress Knee, and it offers players a Telltale-like adventure game driven by dialogue choices and multiple quirky characters.

Also available this week is Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto, an expanded re-release of the fighting game that includes all of the downloadable content packs, as well as a brand new adventure focusing on Naruto’s son.

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

Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers, Double Dragon IV, Knee Deep, more added to PS Store

This week’s PlayStation Store update appears to be brought to you by the letter D…

Koei Tecmo starts things off with the launch of Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers, a new tactical RPG in the long-running series. Available to download now for the PS4 and Vita, Godseekers depicts the “chaotic end days of the Han dynasty,” which is “a period in Chinese history when ancient China was overwhelmed by uprisings and internal strife within its imperial court.”

From ancient China to post-apocalyptic Japan comes Double Dragon IV, the first new entry in the franchise created by the original development team in more than a decade. Billy and Jimmy, the Lee Brothers, make their PS4 debut in a retro-styled side-scroller that serves as a direct sequel to Double Dragon II: The Revenge. The slightly-less-apocalyptic landscape of Florida serves as the setting for Knee Deep, a PS4 adventure game that uses a theatrical style to engage the audience with its murder mystery.

Finally this week, a pair of anime adaptations will be released for the PS4 including Digimon World: Next Order and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto.

More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)

Another re-release will also be available on store shelves this week as Square Enix will collect Hitman‘s “Complete First Season” in a retail package for the PS4 and Xbox One. In addition to all of Agent 47’s previously-released missions, Hitman: The Complete First Season will also include a trio of bonus missions and the Requiem Blood Money Pack, which includes “the signature Blood Money White Suit, White Rubber Duck, and Chrome ICA Pistol.”

Switching gears entirely, anime fans will find a pair of new games on stores including Digimon World: Next Order for the PS4 and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto for the PS4 and Xbox One.

Far Cry: Primal was the best-selling game of February 2016

farcryprimal-header

It’s time to listen to the mastodon roar as Ubisoft’s Far Cry: Primal was declared the best-selling game of February 2016 by The NPD Group. Proving that players might be in the market for more titles that feature pre-modern warfare, Far Cry: Primal beat out Call of Duty: Black Ops III, which took the #2 slot.

Several other new releases broke into the top ten last month, including Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 at #4 and Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright at #9. But the most surprising result might be the less-than-stellar debut of Capcom’s Street Fighter V. Even after a big push from Sony, the much-hyped fighting game was only able to punch its way to #7.

Sales of new PS3 and Xbox 360 games continued to drop last month, and total retail spending on new games slipped 10% from February 2015. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, NPD’s Liam Callahan said: “New physical software trends suffered due to a sharp decline in seventh generation consoles of 52% despite the 14% (or $28 million growth) in eighth generation software. Portable software also had a drop of 30% due to a poor comparison to the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, which coincided with the launch of the New 3DS.”

A complete look at last month’s top ten best-selling titles can be found after the break. (more…)

Xbox Store Today: Unravel, AC Chronicles Russia, Dying Light The Following, more

unravel-header

Yarny threaded his way right into our hearts, so it’s a good thing the lovable character made his Xbox One debut this week with the addition of Unravel to the Xbox Games Store. Developer Coldwood has designed a puzzle platformer that asks players to reunite Yarny with whoever (or whatever) is at the other end of his string, and they’ll need to leap past a variety of terrifying obstacles to do it.

Fans of strategic platformers will have another choice this week as Ubisoft released Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia for the Xbox One. The third (and final) side-scrolling spinoff to the open world franchise will use imagery inspired by Soviet propaganda posters to tell its story as an Assassin attempts to rescue Anastasia from her fate.

Elsewhere on the Xbox Games Store this week, Bandai Namco will release Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, the latest game adaptation of the popular anime, for the Xbox One, while Techland will repackage Dying Light with all of its expansions and re-release it as Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition.

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

Unravel, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, Firewatch, and a lot more added to PS Store

unravel-header

EA’s adorable Yarny will make his video game debut on the PlayStation Store this week with the PS4 release of Unravel. The puzzle platformer has captivated the gaming public since its unveiling during last year’s E3 Expo, and it’ll be interesting to see what the megapublisher does with a lower-key superstar like Yarny.

A number of other titles are also now available to download this week including Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, Ubisoft’s third (and final) side-scrolling spinoff in the Assassin’s Creed series; Firewatch, a first-person adventure about a fire lookout and the woman on the other end of his radio; and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, Bandai Namco’s newest game based on the popular anime.

Finally this week, a pair of re-releases will give gamers another shot at a game they may have missed before. Techland will relaunch Dying Light as Dying Light: The Following — Enhanced Edition, which includes the original game and every downloadable expansion released in the past year. Vertex Pop’s We Are Doomed will also get a re-release this week on the PS Vita after launching on the PS4 last year. And it’s Cross-Buy compatible, so if you bought the PS4 version last year, you can grab the portable version for free.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And, as always, a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

New Releases: Unravel, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles, Dying Light: The Following, More

newreleases020916

Cute dolls, colorful assassins, and parkouring zombies highlight this week’s new release roundup.

After making a huge splash at last year’s E3 Expo, EA is ready to unleash Yarny on the world in Coldwood’s Unravel (PC, PS4, Xbox One). Using a combination of puzzle-solving and platforming, Yarny will navigate the harsh world (especially for a four-inch high yarn doll) to find out who’s on the other end of his string.

Another colorful platforming adventure will make its way onto store shelves this week as Ubisoft will bundle together all three Assassin’s Creed Chronicles games into a single collection. Players will be able to do battle with the Templars in three never-before-seen locales and time periods: China, India, and Russia.

Bandai Namco has a colorful new game of their own ready for release this week as Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, the latest game based on the pretty popular anime, will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One.

Deep Silver will re-release Dying Light this week in a special Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition (PS4, Xbox One), which includes the original game and all four expansions (“Be the Zombie,” “Ultimate Survivor Bundle,” “The Bozak Horde,” and “The Following”).

Finally, Microsoft will launch their Xbox One 500GB “Name Your Game” Bundle, which lets prospective players choose from Forza Motorsport 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, and Rare Replay when they purchase an Xbox One system.

A complete list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)
