The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 10/21/2014
The Drop

Do you lie awake at night, dreaming of cutting down demons with a katana? Or perhaps you muse about which element you would prefer to bend to your will? Well friend, this week’s new PlayStation games have somehow catered to your rather atypical interests.

The Legend of Korra is coming to PS4 and PS3 this week, telling the story of the strong, stubborn avatar and her connection to the four elements. Developed by PlatinumGames, this third-person action game tasks players with unlocking Korra’s bending abilities and using devastating combos against her opponents.

And for those craving the katana, Shadow Warrior also launches this week on PS4. Use the katana (or a bevy of insane firearms) to mow down demons and yakuza alike in this reimagining of a cult classic.

For a full list of games coming to PlayStation this week, read on, and enjoy the Drop!

New PlayStation Games This Week

Escape Goat 2
PS4 — Digital
The theme of Escape Goat 2 is transformation. As you manipulate hidden machinery, walls move around and blocks settle into new places. Things look different when you’re done with the room (especially if you employ your mighty horns to their best use). And you have a remarkable companion to help you on your journey…
F1 2014
PS3 — Digital, Retail
Feel the power of new turbocharged F1 cars in the most accessible F1 game yet, including a new driver evaluation system to adjust the game to your level, shorter career options, and new Very Easy mode. F1 2014 features all the cars, drivers and circuits from the 2014 F1 world championship.
Fluster Cluck
PS4 — Digital
Own the Koop! Use blasters, missiles, turrets, and mines to take down your friends’ UFOs. Drag them to the Chikkinizer while you ignore their whining. Shout taunts at full volume as the chikkins fly, for they cannot mute the Fluster Cluck Master.
Just Dance 2015
PS4, PS3 — Digital, Retail
With more than 50 million copies of Just Dance titles in homes around the world, players are as important as ever, and the new features in Just Dance 2015 bring people together in more ways than ever before.
The Legend of Korra
PS4, PS3 — Digital
An ancient evil force has emerged from the portals and threatens the balance of both worlds! Only the Avatar stands a chance in defeating this new threat! Wield the power of all four elements — water, earth, fire, and air, as only the Avatar can!
Need for Speed Rivals Complete Edition
PS4, PS3 — Retail
Players will get the chance to take the rivalry between cops and racers to Redview County with even more cars. Play as either a cop or racer, where each side of the law has its own set of high stakes challenges, rewards and consequences. Risk everything in the ultimate high stakes rivalry.
Race the Sun
PS4, PS3, PS Vita — Digital (Three Way Cross Buy)
You are a solar-powered craft. The sun is your death timer. Hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed in a futile race against time. Delay the inevitable by catching speed boosts which reverse the setting sun – if only for a moment. Race The Sun is inspired by arcade games of the past with a focus on high scores, short game sessions, and pure fun mingled with nerve-wracking tension.
Samurai Warriors 4
PS4, PS3, PS Vita — Digital (PS4 at Retail)
With the series celebrating its 10th anniversary, the main Story Mode has been overhauled, with two primary ways to play: Regional play, which focuses on the heroic actions of individual warriors throughout the land and A Land United, which focuses on the final years of the turbulent Warring States period.
Shadow Warrior
PS4 — Digital, Retail
Shadow Warrior is a reimagining of the cult classic FPS from developer Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital. Blending the viciously over-the-top gunplay of its predecessor with the elegant precision of the powerful katana, Shadow Warrior is an imaginative take on the classic arcade-style shooter.
The Voice
PS3 — Digital, Retail
The Voice brings all the excitement of the hit TV show to your living room. From the Blind Auditions, to the Battle Rounds, all the way to the Finale, experience the TV show with the ultimate goal of being named “The Voice.”
The Walking Dead: Season 2
PS4 — Digital, Retail
The Walking Dead: Season Two, a five-part game series that continues the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned by the undead apocalypse. Left to fend for herself, she has been forced to learn how to survive in a world gone mad.

  • Definitely Korra and maybe Shadow Warrior. Prices?

  • Can you confirm if the $15 back promo will last after the store update to the end of the day on the 28th so that we can buy Freedom Wars and have it count towards the $100?

  • Okay. Just watched a video on Race the Sun and it looks really freaking awesome.

  • BIG QUESTION

    Why is the PlayStation TV not compatible with so many of my Vita games. Many of which it should obviously be compatible with like Gravity Rush, Wipeout, Y’s, Limunees, and so so many more. Why sell a device to me designed to play Vita games and omit so many Vita games especially ones you’ve given o plus members.

  • Nothing for me this week. Nice to get a breather, though. Week after next I’ll be buying retail copies of Freedom Wars, Walking Dead Season 2, Wolf Among Us & then Tales of Hearts R for Vita all within the same 2-3 weeks.

  • Just preloded Korra, soo excited!!

  • Shadow Warrior? Never heard of it.

  • Samurai Warriors 4 <3

  • Samurai Warriors 4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    give it to meeeeeeeee ^_^ Can’t wait!!!

  • I wish there were more PS4 demos each month :(

  • Seriously only 2 vita games? I’m starting to regret ever buying the piece of junk.

  • @50

    Korra is $14.99, Shadow Warrior is $39.99

  • Hi there Ryan.
    There are 2 games that are currently not playable on PlayStation TV, which are:

    Castlevania The Dracula X Chronicles (PSP)

    Ys Memories of Celceta (VITA)

    Could you report this?
    Is there any news when these games are gonna be available to play on PSTV?

    –also, could you guys add the adjust screen feature to the PSone titles on PSTV, is a bummer to play in a 4:3 format. Please, Make it Happen!

    –Thanks in advance!

  • Costume Quest 2?!?

  • Any good games?

  • Thanks Ryan. I only have on question when are we gonna be able to download Motor storm artic from the NA store. I have many psp games thet i can’t download into my vita. Thank you..

  • Fat Princess: Piece of Cake came out on iOS and I like it. However, there was said to be a vita version. Is it still being worked on? If so, could we get a release date or possible month it might be released? If it has been canceled, can we get a confirmation?
    Thanks.

  • Despite not having watched straight through Avatar, or any of Korra, and the bonus XMB theme being static, I’m nigh compelled to pick up Korra (and, hey, at least the static background looks damn pretty). Perhaps this’ll kick me into “watch that goodness” mode.

    Oh, Escape Goat? I’ve not a PSQuad, but good to see it show, and– Race the Sun as a three-way?! Noice.

  • so when are yall giving the game hustle kings im still waiting for it… give it to us next month for the free ps+ games

  • need some more classics released please, how about sheep raider or tiny tank

  • Let’s see… Samurai Warriors 4 is a definite must. Suppose I might as well get LOK, but not much of an Avatar fan.

    I should probably actually play shadow warrior too… Decisions, decisions…

  • @40

    I imagine we’ll get it eventually, although I’d rather spend 60 bucks on The Crew when it releases next month as to wait on the Plus edition for DRIVECLUB and still end up having to buy it for the full experience.

    That being said, I doubt Ryan’d know, you’d be better off if you’re gonna ask about it, ask about it on the Store update Tuesday, as far as I’m aware the Plus team does poke around there.

  • Where is Costume Quest 2? It’s almost Halloween for crying out loud! And, of course, for the umpteenth time where is Driveclub + Edition?

  • I can’t lie, I’m really disappointed in Koei Tecmo dialing back their physical Vita efforts. In thrilled their games are still coming without issue, mind, but it’d be nice to at least have the option. I don’t normally have problems with digital games, but as much as I want to support the Warriors series, I can’t justify having more than one on my card at once. I’ll probably rebuy DW8XLC physical down the road so I can buy Orochi 3 for Vita, but by the time I can get SW4, DW9 will probably be on the way. Ah well.

  • @65
    Wait, one of their highly toted “upcoming Vita titles” already came out on another system and we still don’t know about it coming here?

    That’s… sadly kind of typical at this point.

  • too bad Legend of Korra wasn’t up to pre-order in Europe…. That and Bayonetta 2 on friday. Week of Platinum Games.

  • More PS1 Classics please:

    Suikoden 2
    Einhander
    Megaman Legends 1 and 2
    Jade Cocoon
    Vandal Hearts 1 and 2
    Die Hard Trilogy
    DIablo

    Any old PS1 RPGs are welcome!

  • My Bending is Ready!

  • Awesome can’t wait to play Shadow Warrior I have heard good things about the game.

  • Legend of Korra is my jam! Definitely gonna pick that up. Can’t wait to check it out! So awesome to see Platinum do the game tie-in to such an awesome show!

  • Getting The Voice. Undiscovered superstar here :P

  • I’m still so pissed at Sony. The PS4 is by far the most insecure system ever made. Last year I was hacked and then the other day while playing Sleeping Dogs my console becomes remotely controlled and all my save files for every game I own was deleted and they could give me no explanation since there’s no one here with a device to remotely control it in my home. Plus still waiting for a refund they said I would be given for all the VC I lost because my player in NBA 2K15 was erased after I had just reached the finals and have a lot of badges and a 90 rating which I now have to do all over again. So, fair warning, if you have a PS3 and you’re looking to upgrade, you might want to wait until they can provide an update to make the system secure from hackers and get rid of stupid ideas like initialization that will take place if your system is shut down while a game is being played because they must have never heard of a power outage or someone remotely controlling you’re system from miles away if enabling is turned on.

  • Really hoping for a good PS+discounted sale sometime soon.
    As we have not really had one ( 1-Little King ), since I resub’ed a few months ago, to make it worth more than making sure I play the few worthwhile games I haven’t yet.

    Maybe Halloween?
    Not really a genre I care for though, unless the Hero (unisexual in my opinion) wins.

    Can’t complain about the regular sales though, as I have picked up a few (so few on Vita) and we have PSP classics that are almost a decade old now being ignored.

    With Vita T.V. recently maybe you should reconsider and sell some of them already.

    @80 How many power outages do you have per year, and How long does it take for initialization?
    Maybe, it was implemented to keep rage quitters from ruining the console they want to repair, when they ruin it.
    Or, because they can not handle defeat.

  • Samurai Warriors 4 and Race the Sun look pretty interesting. Can’t wait for next week though, because that’s when Freedom Wars comes out.

  • plsssssssss wwe 2k15-16 in ps vita plssssssss

  • How the heck did they not make F1 2014 for PS4??

    I totally would have bought it on Playstation 4.. but they didn’t even bother to make it.

  • Ima complain now. Number 1) Why did you take all those PS1 and PSP games off the compatibility list??? Now neither PS TV owners nor Vita owners (since the PSN Stores are the same) can play Battlefront 2, Metal Gear Solid, or Valkyria Chronicles 2. Number 2) WHO LAUNCHES A DEVICE WITH NO NETFLIX. I want the Vita platform to succeed, but PS misses something as frickin’ standard as Netflix!

  • I AM A MAN OF PEARLESS MIGHT!!!!!!!!!!

  • @89 I AM A MAN OF APPLELESS MIGHT!

  • I’m kind of disappointed that there isn’t any news on a possible Freedom Wars demo. I’m really looking forward to the game when it comes out though!!

  • is the Legend of Korra the game worth it?

  • May have to check out Samurai Warrior 4 when I get some extra $. I know I plan on getting TWD Season 2 next week when I get paid. Knew though Capcom was trolling us releasing X4 and X5 but not X6 afterwards :(

  • What? no Daidōji dlc for senran kagura?
    Ain’t even mad yo….

  • you forgot to mention DreamFall Chapters Book 1 that comes out the same time as The Legend of Korra

  • Wow, just tried out Korra on the middling mode, and dodging is your friend, folks.

  • I mean, three tries to clear Chapter 1, and the second I got to KO at the last second, but time was still running and ended before the KO counted. What a nailbiting rager that was!

  • Is the legend of korra out in the u.s only or the UK to

  • I don’t see F1 2014 for SP3 on PSN.

  • NFS Rivals retail only! That sucks i wanted a digital version :(
