200°
6w ago - Square Enix Senior Product Manager Sakura Minamida shared PS3 pre-order details today for Drakengard 3 which takes fans inside a mature story.

To quote: Time is ticking down to the launch of Drakengard 3, coming exclusively to PS3 on May 20th. As of today, we've entered wave 2 of our pre-order bonuses, and fans of the developer's previous work should not miss what we're giving out.

Pre-ordering any time between now and April 9th gets you the Nier costume pack, bringing a little bit of that game's fantastic and beautiful weirdness to Drakengard 3.

You can equip Zero in the costume of everyone's favorite, foul-mouthed warrior, Kainč, or don the Replicant version of the game's protagonist. Your dragon is not forgotten either, as he can wear the awesomely creepy-faced Emil hat.

The Nier costume pack expires on April 9th, and if you pre-order by then, don't forget that you also get another bonus that we'll reveal on that day - so don't miss out!

Of course, if you pre-ordered before today, you've already got the Nier costume pack included.

9w ago - Konami Community Manager T.K. Shrodes shared details today on the new Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 PS3 demo that is out today on PSN below.

To quote: Want a taste of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2? Originally available only to owners of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD and the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection, the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 demo will be available for everyone today on PlayStation Store.

Download it today, and draw first blood against Dracula's many enemies in this demo, which highlights Gabriel at the height of his power.

Lash out with the Shadow Whip, a cruel remainder of Gabriel's once holy Combat Cross, or steal your enemies' very souls with the Void Sword. Employ my personal favorite, the Chaos Claws, to break down your foes' defenses and smash them into a very satisfying paste.

Dodge, jump and combo your way from Dracula's own throne room to an enormous assault against Dracula's castle, showing off differences in scale from the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and the many additions to the Mercury Engine that make this title bigger, better, and just like Gabriel's turn... Darker.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is available on PS3 in North America starting February 25th. Stay tuned for a special deal for...

23w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared details today on cleaning up with Dustforce for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

To quote: Sprint, leap, and clean towards victory. Dustforce celebrates precision platforming, and embraces its 2D roots by spritzing the whole experience with colorful characters and a grooving anime twist. In Dustforce, players gun for the best time and most complete run through more than 50 stages.

Originally developed by a small indie team for the PC crowd, Capcom is bringing Dustforce to PS3 and PS Vita. All the charm and addictive play of the PC version returns, along with online multiplayer (ranked and private), shiny Trophies, and cross save support. Now the PlayStation community can train to become the greatest of ninja janitors the world has ever known.

The Capcom crew brought Dustforce by for Justin and me to play. Listen to our interview with them below, then read on for our full impressions.

Dustforce gives players room to breathe. At the start, stages are short, simple, and teach newcomers how to successfully navigate obstacles and clean up the most dust to achieve high scores. Jumps are cozy, and the levels themselves are designed to pull the player into a flow.

One run through a stage reveals the layout and enemy placement,...
