16w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan has confirmed today that Killzone: Mercenary hits PS Vita on September 17th alongside unveiling a new trailer and screenshots below!
To quote: Killzone: Mercenary is scheduled for a September 17, 2013 release in North America.
Killzone: Mercenary is a new first-person shooter in the Killzone series, developed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform and powered by the stunning Killzone engine.
Starting just after the ending of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the Killzone trilogy, the game puts players in the rugged combat boots of a mercenary named Arran Danner. Danner is a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.
When a seemingly routine mission to evacuate the Vektan Ambassador and his family in Pyrrhus goes awry, Danner discovers that the outcome of the war could very well depend on the fate of the Ambassador's young son.
With both sides going to increasingly desperate lengths to get hold of the boy, he begins to wonder whether the price of victory is really worth the paycheck.
We also have a brand-new trailer for you to enjoy:
17w ago - Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari has revealed today that Soul Sacrifice hits PS Vita this April 30th, alongside the official box art and pre-order extras detailed below!
To quote: Since it was announced for North America, and as new assets and details are rolled out to eager fans worldwide, excitement for Soul Sacrifice has only increased.
No other title for PlayStation Vita combines the same frantic real-time combat, thrilling sense of scale, smartly interwoven cooperative multiplayer, or meaningful character customization... Not to mention the contributions of legends of gaming like designer Keiji Inafune or composer Yasunori Mitsuda and Wataru Hokoyama.
For weeks, fans have asked for more info about the game's North American release, wanting a final date and box art, and details about possible pre-order extras. Finally, those questions can be answered!
Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita launches in stores and via PlayStation Network on April 30th, 2013. As for the box art, it is essentially the same as that which Japanese fans will proudly display on their shelves (or pedestals, if you're a pedestal kind of person):
Fans who pre-order Soul Sacrifice will receive an exclusive pack of in-game content - it will not be sold anywhere else!
18w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator Ryan Phillips has announced that Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories hits PlayStation Network today with details below, as follows:
Greetings all! We're super excited that Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories is coming to PSN later today as a PS2 Classic! I'm dropping by today to talk briefly about the title and to answer any questions you may have for us!
First let's talk about the Disgaea in general for those that are new to the series. Disgaea is a turn-based strategy role-playing game series that is well known for its over-the-top attacks that give you the ability to inflict millions of points of damage on your enemies, its cast of hilarious and memorable characters, and lastly its deep customizable gameplay and seemingly endless replayability. If you're an RPG fan and new to the series, this is an opportune chance to try it out on your PS3 for only $9.99!
Here is the story in a nutshell: a mighty Overlord named Zenon (one of my favorite characters) has cursed the land and now Veldime is transforming into a nasty Netherworld. Memories are sterilized, bodies demonized, and the world is generally falling into chaos.
The only one unaffected is a young man, named Adell. He stands up to fight the curse, but of course things never go as planned. Enter...
