67w ago - Muteki Corporation President, CEO and Founder Bryan Sawler has confirmed today that classic RPG love in the form of Dragon Fantasy Book II is coming PS3 and PS Vita next year.
To quote: Building the first Dragon Fantasy was an amazing experience. And after pouring your heart and soul into a project like that, you can only think "Where do I go from here?".
After we'd really pushed the limits of 8-bit gameplay and graphics with the first game, we knew it was time to bump the game a "generation". This meant being a lot more ambitious with what we wanted to do, and bigger ambitions require bigger support.
So with the support of SCEA's Pub Fund, we're thrilled to announce Dragon Fantasy Book II is headed for PS3 and PS Vita next year on PSN!
Originally, we had planned to follow the original three chapters of 8-bit style with another three chapters in a more 16-bit style. We planned to do a slow and steady progression, chapter by chapter adding more and more features.
But as soon as we started work on the new chapters we quickly found ourselves aiming squarely at the end of that generation immediately. We didn't want to start out simple again as we had already done that. We wanted to make the best RPG...
70w ago - Creative Director Vander Caballero at Minority has posted up a video today announcing that the Papo and Yo adventure begins on PSN next week.
To quote: It's hard to believe that Papo & Yo is so close to launch!
This story has been in my heart for a long time, but thanks to the hard work of the whole team at Minority you all will finally be able to experience it next Tuesday, August 14th.
To celebrate the upcoming launch, we wanted to share something special with all of you. Although we are a small indie studio, we are lucky to have been able to work with the experienced filmmakers at Rezolution Pictures and talented Montreal director Alfonso Maiorana.
They have created an amazing cinematic launch trailer for our game that not only shows the start of Quico's story, but also the inspiration behind Papo & Yo's fantastic world. We hope you like it!
Since we are part of Sony's PSN PLAY promotion this year, PlayStation Plus members can pre-order Papo & Yo starting today for $11.99, and non-subscribers can do the same for $14.99.
You can also get part of that money back if you buy some of the other wonderful PSN PLAY titles from our fellow...
71w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Producer Oliver Smith has confirmed today that the Payday: The Heist Wolfpack DLC will be hitting PlayStation Network next week.
To quote: Attention PAYDAY crew! Wolfpack, the first PSN downloadable content for PAYDAY: The Heist, is coming to North America next Tuesday, August 7th.
We've been busy casing some new jobs for you, with Wolfpack featuring two never-before-seen epic heists - Undercover and Counterfeit.
The Undercover heist forces players to drive away the pesky police interrupting a back alley deal, while the Counterfeit heist pressures players to use silenced weapons to keep whistle-blowing civilians from escaping an underground money printing gig. If they tell the 5-0, they'll blow the whole operation!
We're also arming you with new weapons and crewmembers to ensure the job goes smoothly. These new heists require advanced skills, but award bigger payouts. Key features of the Wolfpack DLC include:
• New Weapons: Spray some lead on the move with the all-new auto handgun and assault rifle, or blow away tenacious foes with the shiny new grenade launcher. Need someone to watch your back? Release the deployable sentry gun to take out your enemies.
• The Technician: Based on the character Wolf, the technician...
72w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today alongside a video trailer that a new PSP SRPG Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time will be out next week!
To quote: We're way-fairly convinced you're going to find this post way-fairly awesome, and no, not just because it's about Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time, the upcoming PSP strategy RPG from, well... us.
As for why we're so convinced, it's becau- wait, what? Oh, no, you heard right; we said "PSP."
Look, folks, it's still an immensely popular system with a huge user base and an amazing library of RPGs and SRPGs. Also, with a game as ridiculously lengthy as Growlanser: WoT (and this PSP remaster is significantly meatier than the original release from way-back-when).
It does take a while to localize things from Japanese to English, so it's not as though we're eagerly planning PSP games for 2025. Unless, of course, the PSP becomes sentient and takes over the world, in which case we welcome our new PSP overlords and commit to supporting the system for all eternity.
Anyhoo, the reason you should be am excite for this post is because:
It is to celebrate the debut of the game's full trailer (above), which shows...
73w ago - Neko Entertainment QA Manager Sebastian Chipot has announced today that Puddle will be splashing on to PlayStation Vita next week with details below.
To quote: Hello, I'm Sebastien from Neko Entertainment. We came out with a game earlier this year called Puddle, and we're bringing it to PS Vita next week!
Puddle began as a project by six students of the video game school ENJMIN. It won a Student Showcase prize at the Independent Gaming Festival at GDC 2010, and was later picked up by Neko Entertainment. There, those same six students were able to turn it into a full-fledged game.
After we released the game on PS3, we worked hard to get a better handle on the game's mechanics, so we'd be able to deliver a new version of Puddle on PS Vita. We paid particular attention to feedback from PS3 players when working on the PS Vita version – which will have many exclusive features!
We made the game a bit easier (there's an option to "whine and skip" a level if it's proving too difficult), there are now tips on every loading screen, and menus have been changed to take advantage of the touch screen.
You can change the control setup (tilt the console, use the left stick, use L and R buttons, or even use the rear touch pad). We wanted to make sure you have...
