All Articles: Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin
Sony has announced (via the PlayStation Blog, naturally) that they’re bringing 26 PS4 games to this year’s PAX East convention.
By giving attendees more than two dozen demo options, Sony will be able to showcase a wide variety of titles at their booth including AAA blockbusters (Gran Turismo Sport and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy), highly-anticipated indie offerings (Cosmic Star Heroine, Tooth & Tail, and What Remains of Edith Finch), and a few PlayStation VR curiosities (Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin and Farpoint).
Here’s a full look at the 26 PS4 games Sony will bring to PAX East 2017 (though a few of them are also in development for the Vita):
The 2017 PAX East convention will open its doors this Friday, March 10, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
It’s a weird, weird world in this week’s PlayStation Store update.
First up, PS4 players will get to return to the world of Psychonauts for the first time in more than a decade in Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin. Only playable with a PlayStation VR headset, Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin will bridge the gap between the original game and its upcoming sequel with Raz’s first mission as a full-fledged member of the Psychonauts.
Also available to download this week for the PS4 is Night in the Woods, a stylish adventure game about the strange things in the woods that go bump in the night. The alphabetical platforming adventures found in Typoman will also offer PS4 owners another unique world to explore this week.
Finally, Koei Tecmo and Omega Team will bring the latest Warriors spinoff, Beserk and the Band of the Hawk, to the PS4 and Vita this week. Based on the Berserk manga by Kentaro Miura, the game follows the Band of the Hawk as they battle giant monsters.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
Psychonauts launched to great reviews, but rather tepid sales, back in 2005. But the platformer slowly built up an audience over the years, which allowed Double Fine to announce a full-fledged sequel last year. But first, Raz will return in Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, which will be released next month, and bridge the gap between the first game and the upcoming Psychonauts 2:
The story will pick up exactly where it left off at the end of Psychonauts ten years ago, with Raz, Lili, Sasha, Milla, and Coach Oleander flying off to rescue Truman Zannotto, the Grand Head of the Psychonauts. Their mission will take them straight into the heart of the Rhombus of Ruin… a mysterious part of the ocean as deadly as two Bermuda Triangles back to back!
When the rescue party itself is kidnapped and held prisoner in the Rhombus, Raz is immobilized and must use only his psychic powers to reunite his friends, reveal the identity of the mysterious kidnapper, and free Truman before the madness of the Rhombus consumes all their minds!
Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is in development exclusively for the PS4’s PlayStation VR headset, and it’ll be available to download through the PlayStation Store on February 21. If you want to get a preview of how Rhombus of Ruin will feel in virtual reality, Double Fine has also created a special “360 View Trailer” for the game, and it’s been embedded above.
