3w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements detailed the new new PlayStation video game releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

The thrill and spectacle of America's pastime is returning to PlayStation this week in a colossal launch. The definitive baseball experience in gaming arrives on PS3 and PS Vita this week, and it packs more than 40 improvements and additions over its predecessors.

With the launch of MLB 14 The Show, the critically-acclaimed series hits new heights with tons of ground-breaking features. Year-to-year saves allow players to carry their progress from this year forward, into future entries of The Show.

Quick Counts enable gamers to knock out full, nine-inning games in less than 30 minutes for an easy fix, and Universal Profiles on PS3 capture player styles for the entire MLB community to see.

But MLB 14 The Show isn't the only anticipated launch this week; Mercenary Kings hits PS4 and packs retro visuals on top of a killer, side-scrolling shooter/RPG hybrid. Craft weapons and take on deadly missions solo or with friends.

For a complete list of games coming to PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

PlayStation Plus April Preview: Arkham City, Mercenary Kings and More

3w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer unveiled their PlayStation Plus April preview today, which includes Arkham City, Mercenary Kings and more below!

To quote: Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, Batman! Yes, that is the sound of Batman: Arkham City coming to PlayStation Plus in April for PlayStation 3 owners.

Arkham City garnered praise from gamers and critics alike, as evidenced by its cumulative 96/100 score on Metacritic. With the recent announcement of Batman Arkham Knight, this is a great way to catch up on Batman's adventures.

PlayStation 4 owners can join up with friends and take down an evil corporation in a new 2D action game, Mercenary Kings. As you explore the island CLAW (that's the evil corporation) has taken over, you'll discover weapon parts that you can take back to your base and use to fashion together some new spiffy gear.

There are two other PS3 games this month: Stealth Inc. A Clone In the Dark and Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse. Stealth Inc. is, as you can probably guess, a game where you should stick to the shadows.

The only way to make it out of the lab alive is via some sneaky platforming, so proceed with caution. Castle of Illusion is a proper remake of the Sega Genesis version, not...
 

10tons Ltd Announces King Oddball Conquers PS4 on April 1st

4w ago - 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced that King Oddball conquers PlayStation 4 on April 1st, 2014.

To quote: Hi PS4 gamers! I'm Jaakko from the Finnish game developer 10tons, and I've got some great news: Our fair studio is about to debut on PS4!

Our first PS4 title is a strange, skill-based physics puzzle called King Oddball. Some of you may know the game from its PS Vita version released in January. We have more great games for PS4 in production too, and we'll share more on those soon.

As far as physics-based puzzles go, King Oddball stands out quite distinctly. Few games feature a floating rock head with a ginormously long tongue as the main character. As eccentric as the theme may be, the game is decidedly straightforward. King Oddball is ending the world, and you're going to help him.

The gameplay is based on pressing a button at precisely the right moment. The King picks up a rock with his tongue and swings it back and forth like a pendulum. The rock is released when you hit X. It's not just a simple test of timing though: After the first few levels, you'll need to crush more enemies than you have rocks for.

That, in turn, requires careful strategy and anticipation of how the chain reactions will unfold. We've tuned the physics model to...

4w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo announced that Demon Gaze is coming to PS Vita on April 22nd, 2014.

To quote: Greetings, doods! I don't know about you, but after a long week at the office, I feel like a vacation's in order. I'm thinking someplace exotic that will wake me up from the daily grind, and I know just the place!

I'd like to introduce you to the warm and hospitable dungeon-crawling RPG world of Demon Gaze, which will be available for PS Vita on April 22nd. Mystery, dungeons, monsters, and demons... this place has it all for you adventurin' weekend-warrior types. So come along with me and let's take a grand tour of the world of Demon Gaze.

Demon Gaze takes place in the land of Misrid, which has terrain for every adventurer. There are ancient cities (That are on fire!) for history buffs, woodsy mazes for those who pack homemade granola in their hemp-woven satchels, and even haunted burial grounds for travelers looking for a little morbid fun.

You'll get to experience all these lands in the classic, first-person dungeon-crawling style - slashing your way through mazes and getting up close and personal with the local wildlife by engaging in bloody, turn-based battle.

Navigation's a breeze when you can plot your course through these dangerous...

In this action-packed adventure, you must choose between Empress and King, two members of the elite squad known as the Mercenary Kings! Dropped on Mandragora Island, you're tasked with one mission: rescue the brilliant Dr. James Neil from the forces of C.L.A.W. (Cyber Loyalist Active Weapons) and prevent them from using the Mandrake Formula to conquer the globe.

You can be a lone wolf if you dare, or assemble your own team of mercenaries to take down C.L.A.W! Your crew can have up to four players, whether it's on your couch or online.

Thanks to your support crew back at Camp Crown, the side-scrolling action of Mercenary Kings gets deep. The materials gathered during your missions can be forged into powerful cannons or sharp blades.

With 300+ gun parts and more than 100 knives, the possibilities are huge! Will you craft a machine gun with mega-ammo, or a quick-reload pistol? What about forging a blade...
