The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 8/12/2014
The Drop

Some games are easy to explain, with straight-forward objectives and recognizable modes of play. Then there’s the smile-inducing Hohokum.

Hohokum launches Tuesday as part of the PS Store Play on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita as a cross buy, cross save experience. In it, you guide a curious kite-like being through a colorful playground in which you alone decide your goals, pace, and purpose. Explore the eccentric cast contained within, uncover unusual secrets, bathe in a swath of colors, and kick back to melodic tunes befitting this atypical gaming adventure.

But that’s just the beginning. Read on for a complete list of games coming to PlayStation, and — as always — enjoy the Drop!

Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed
Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited
Gravity Crash Ultra
Hohokum
My Singing Monsters
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds
Risen 3: Titan Lords
Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition

New PlayStation Games This Week

Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed
PS3, PS Vita — Digital, Retail
Travel through Tokyo’s Akihabara ward with more than 130 real-life shops represented. Make anything a weapon, and uncover a hidden threat in a satirical storyline that plays off of anime and video game tropes.
Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited
PS Vita — Digital, Retail
Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is the revamped, portable version of the hit PS3 game. It features new spells, returning game systems from previous Disgaea adventures, and even a new story scenario! Comes packed with all the DLC from the PS3 version.
Gravity Crash Ultra
PS Vita — Digital
What can you expect from Gravity Crash Ultra? The devs have it running at the Vita’s native resolution at a smooth-as-butter 60 frames per second. The lighting and visual effects have been given a makeover, turning the particles up to eleven. Explosions, weapon effects, a refined graphics renderer, better lighting… the list goes on. And that’s just the visuals!
Hohokum
PS4, PS3, PS Vita — Digital (Cross Buy)
Take on the role of a curious, flying, kite-like being and travel to colorful, curious worlds waiting to be discovered. Interact with characters and environments to uncover secrets, or simply roam at your own pace and be amused at the surprises that unfold.
My Singing Monsters
PS Vita — Digital
Collect, breed, and listen to your monsters sing. You have never seen a game like this before. Populate an island and watch what happens. Create unique havens by landscaping and arranging your creatures.
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds
PS Vita — Digital
Smooth animation, retro 8-bit graphics, and intense gameplay with four-player online/offline co-op.
Risen 3: Titan Lords
PS3 — Digital, Retail
The world has been abandoned by its gods and is scarred from the rampage of the Titans. Humanity is struggling to regain strength and rally its forces. You, however, have more pressing concerns: your own life has been shattered and you must set off to reclaim what is lost amidst the darkness that is spreading throughout the world.
Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition
PS4 — Digital
This version of the game contains all of the best parts from the PC and iOS versions, all in one convenient package for your gaming pleasure. The eye and teeth transplants and trolley mode from the iOS version of the game are all here, as well as the original operating theatre, ambulance, space and alien spacecraft operations. And… they work on a CONTROLLER. The future is here!

  • akiba’s trip and phantom breaker here I come

  • Yay some Vita love this week! I will be getting Akiba’s Trip and Phantom Breaker!

    Can’t wait for Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment next week – so hyped!

  • Akiba Trip and Phantom Breaker!

  • @2 Vita for me as it’s my primary gaming device right now

  • Game releases are a good thing. But here I sit feeling rather nostalgic in recent terms of memory.there were some really good ps2 games that should be released…
    Soul reaver 2
    Baldurs gate dark alliance 1 and 2
    X men legends 1 and 2
    And a serious host of others as well, plus still several ps1 games that should become digital as well. I know 3 of the games I named were greatest hits games, so make a push for them.
    Thank you

  • Love the new layout. It is much easier to see what games are coming out and for what system it is coming out on.

  • I would still love to see Suikoden 2 on the PSN.

  • Hohokum and Surgeon Simulator for me this week. I’ll wait for the PS4 version of Akiba’s Trip before I dive in.

  • Anyone knows if Hohokum’s soundtrack will be available for purchased?

  • No PS2 classics this week either? come on guys, there’s still plenty of classics available we want to see on PSN.

  • I noted the EU had a ton (well over 30) of ps4 games added to their summer sale will we be getting the same treatment

  • Omg man ps plus sucks right now on ps4 give us at less 1 AAA game please i know its still eary but wow theres nothing i like please sony give us something

  • This drop has finally convinced me to purchased the PS Vita. I am hoping that Project Diva F 2nd is still being imported to the United States!

  • Akiba’Strip Yes! ^-^
    Waitig for Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;birth 1 on thr 26 ! For Vita! :D

  • Can’t wait for Hohokum!

  • Good to see Phantom Breaker finally, I was expecting another last minute delay.

    Pretty awesome week for the Vita. August and September is just full of stuff in looking forward to.

  • Phantom breaker – DONE! It looks like it has that great Scott Pilgrim feel to it.

  • Akibas trip for me. Just gatta go to me Gamestop to pick up a copy. Also never knew about this phantom breaker game it seems cool.

  • I have a question before it goes away. FF Discounts are leaving this week? I will hate to miss it and I can buy a card is Wednesday :(

  • MADDEN 15 DEMO WERE IS IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Any news when more PS1 Classics are coming to the Vita? Specifically Crash Bandicoot and Spyro for North American PS Vita owners????!!!!

  • Hrm. Phantom breaker looks interesting. Prolly wait till the ps4 version for akiba’s trip, though. I wonder if there’s a cross save for the ps4/vita

  • Going to save for other choices, like SAO and Rebirth, Freedom Wars.

    And even then, will wait for a few sales on a couple since its digital.

    FFX is keeping my Vita glowing for now.

  • Really want to see a few more PS2 HD for vita :)

    Square Enix has a few I am interested in.

  • Once again, I have to beg for the Vita Store to be updated with compatibility for all those PS1/PSP games

  • I can’t wait to get Gravity Crash Ultra and Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds for my Vita. Those two games look interesting. Hokokum doesn’t look too bad either.:D

  • I want to say that sony or PSN should give a very good offers like discounts, points for money paid on store
    People are boring of the arcade crap games, if I want to play arcade badly, I’ll hold my iphone & play puzzle free games ..
    PS+ must respect us as consumers

  • Ryan I love you! BEYOND!

  • Will Gravity Crash be Cross-Buy for those who already bought it for the PS3?

  • Hmm, so many games this month. Got One Piece not too long ago, now this month have 4, Akiba’s Trip, Disgaea, Neptunia, Sword Art Online. confused, probably got budget for 1-2 games only.

  • is it next week yet? I just want diablo already!!!!

  • Awsome.!!

  • Wow, so many good Vita games this week. I’ve had Akiba’s Trip pre-ordered for a good 2 months now. So excited!

  • Disgaea 4, Akiba Strip and Phantom Breaker Battlegrounds is on my list :)

  • Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed how much?

  • I’m most likely getting Akiba’s Trip for this week. And I’ll probably get SAO: HF when it comes out next week.

  • Akiba’s Trip and Disgaea 4 looks interesting. Hopefully they’ll have a demo.

  • please bring more sony psone classics, for example:
    mega man x4
    mega man x5
    mega man x6
    vigilante 8 2nd offense
    mega man legends 2
    breath of fire iii
    tenchu stealth of the assassins
    tekken 3
    legend of legaia
    jade cocoon

    psp games too:
    crisis core final fantasy vii
    kingdom hearts birth by sleep
    final fantasy type 0

    I’m sure many people would want most of these games on their consoles that I quoted, please.

  • You do know that Phantom Breaker’s graphical style is not 8-bit, right?

    I’m still looking forward to the game and all, but if anything the graphic style is closer to 16-bit brawlers.

  • Is there anyway in the world those game titles could be made to click to the PSN store? I mean, come on. Let us open each game in a new tab that we are interested in taking a look at. I can not believe that on a blog showing off the upcoming games, they do not make it as easy as possible to get to the page to see the info and BUY them.

    Just crazy.

  • Akiba’s Trip and Phantom Breaker for me this week. Would get Disgaea 4 again, but I think I’ll wait, not sure I want to get sucked into the item world yet or not.

  • I’ve always wanted to play surgeon simulator

  • “Whats up with a Madden 15 Demo?!?!? I got madden fever man, I need my fix…”

    EA isn’t releasing a Madden demo this year. In fact, as long as EA Access is a thing and they’re offering early access to members, I wouldn’t expect to see many demos from EA anymore.

  • i preloaded hohokum a few days ago and my countdown timer says i wont have access until 3 pm tuesday EST. i have a friend who lives in SF and his timer says 9 PM PST for the 11th, any other east coasters having the same problem as me?

  • im tired of all these POS indie/retro games.
    So i bought a next gen console with hardware capable to show awesome graphics…. but all that is released are ugly retro games? I played those back in the 80’s and 90’s…. how about something that shows of the capailities of the ps4.

  • Well I must say there are a lot of games coming out for the ps vita so for all of you people that were complaining about where’s the support for the platform you can be quiet now. On another note great to see the games for the ps vita!!!!!!!

  • Disgaea 4 demo…….?!
    You can’t be serious!!!!!

  • Is Reaper of Surgeons going to be a ADDON??????????????

  • Hey Sony, when are you gonna throw us a bone and add some new PSOne/PS2 classics to the store (besides the usual Atlus stuff)? There’s still plenty of decent ones we don’t have yet. At least let us know if you’re done with those so I don’t have to keep asking all the time.

  • it’s 12 now where’s Akiba’s Strip???
