MonkeyPaw Games Retro Rush Week 2: Lucifer Ring Hits PSN

50°
13w ago - MoneyPaw Games PR Manager Ryan Olsen is back with Retro Rush Week 2, which features Lucifer Ring on PSN today.

Below are the details, to quote: MonkeyPaw Games is back for the second game in the Retro Rush lineup! What's the Retro Rush? Each week, for six weeks, we'll be releasing a new import PSone Classic on the PSN for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PSP. The first week was Double Dragon, and now Lucifer Ring is the next stop for Week 2.

Lucifer Ring is another title that hasn't seen a release outside of Japan and we are the first to bring it over the ocean and on to the PlayStation Network. It's a 3D beat-'em-up that's heavy on action.

You play as a young hero named Nash who is tasked with stopping a dark wizard from using the Lucifer Rings that will open the gates of Hell. Naturally, Nash will have to hack and slash his way through Centaurs, Goblins, Dragons and creatures named Bob to put a stop to the evil forces. There will be mini-bosses and multi-state level bosses to round out this adventure to put our hero to the test.

Dark wizards never let heroes get any rest, do they?

Lucifer Ring originally released in 1998 on the original PlayStation, which means this classic gem will see it's first North American release 16 years after the original release...

17w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new PlayStation releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

What better way to relax during the holidays than bundle up, pour some hot cider, dim the lights, and enjoy a few rounds of glorious video game pinball? Did you think I was going to suggest spending time with loved ones? Oh. That's good, too.

This week, PlayStation is getting ready to enjoy the holiday break, so we have one game coming to PS4, and it's a great one: Zen Pinball 2. For those of you that already own tables on the PS3 or PS Vita version, you'll be able to download the PS4 tables at no additional cost.

For those that are trying out Zen Pinball 2 for the first time, the Sorcerer's Lair table is free to play.

Given the light release lineup, The Drop will also be taking a short holiday break and coming back to PlayStation.Blog at the start of the new year. Until then, I wish each and every one of you a happy and restful holiday. May your gaming be ample and your snacks be delicious.

Unless you're dieting for the holiday. In which case, may your diet be successful.
