The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 11/25/2014
The Drop

Wait, didn’t all the games come out last week? Nonsense! Another huge week of gaming is ready to storm the world of PlayStation, starting with the frantic arcade arenas of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions.

The legendary shooter series hits PS4 and PS3 this week with more than 50 levels of heart-pounding battles. Fend off waves of enemies using devastating weapons, unique companion drones, and your own reflexes. Death comes quickly on these shifting 3D battlescapes, so stay light on your digital toes and you could earn a coveted spot on the leaderboards.

And that’s just the beginning. Save the global cat population in Aqua Kitty DX (actual plot point), uncover the secrets within Japan’s Akihabara district in Akiba’s Trip, or just brawl in the 1920’s with Speakeasy. The choices!

For a full list of games coming to PlayStation this week, read on. And, as ever, enjoy the Drop!

Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed
Aqua Kitty -- Milk Mine Defender DX
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions
Jetpack Joyride Deluxe

New PlayStation Games This Week

Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed
PS4 — Digital, Retail
Explore the supernatural mysteries of Akihabara in AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed. A dark conspiracy plots to consume Japan’s pop-culture mecca with an army of synthetic vampires. As a fugitive from their experiments, it’s up to you to hunt these “Synthisters” down, brawling with them in the streets and tearing off their clothes to roast them in the harsh light of day.
Aqua Kitty — Milk Mine Defender DX
PS4, PS Vita — Digital (Cross Buy)
Due to a sudden shortage of milk, cats around the world are forced to seek out new sources to get their fix. You and your team of milk mining kittens have overcome a fear of water to drill down under the ocean seabed and begin extracting vast reserves of what seems to be naturally forming full-fat milk.
PSone Classic — Digital
Take a shot at the Championship Title as you master your attacks whether you’re a Lightweight, Middleweight, or Heavyweight contender.
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions
PS4, PS3 — Digital
Enjoy the next chapter in the award-winning Geometry Wars franchise and battle through waves of enemies in this frenetic arcade shooter. Over 50 single-player levels including Adventure and Classic Arcade modes, 3D grids, and over 10 battle modes including Pacifism, King and Claustrophobia.
Jetpack Joyride Deluxe
PS3, PS Vita — Digital
Join Barry Steakfries as he breaks into a secret laboratory to commandeer the experimental jetpacks from the clutches of science evildoers.
Pocket RPG
PS Vita — Digital
Each quest in Pocket RPG is a new adventure. The hero starts at level zero with an empty satchel and collects items rapidly, building their strength to dizzying proportions. In Pocket RPG, items matter and the way you use them is even more important.
Pocket RPG provides hours of fantasy hack ‘n slash mayhem.
PS4 — Digital
While it might look like a fighter on the outside, Speakeasy is an incredibly simple to learn, but difficult to master game that will require you to match wits with your opponent, who happens to be standing right next to you. Each player will take on the role of a fighter vying for the Fisticuffs League Champion crown!
Thomas Was Alone
PS4 — Digital (Three Way Cross Buy)
Thomas Was Alone is the critically-acclaimed indie platformer about friendship and jumping. Guide a group of sentient rectangles through a series of environments, combining their skills to reach the end of the level. Listen to awesome music by David Housden, negotiate obstacles meticulously placed by Mike Bithell, and immerse yourself in the characters’ journey with a voiceover read wistfully and amusingly by Danny Wallace.

  • Have a good week, and Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Akiba’s Trip is a fun game. Played the Vita version and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for some silly and wacky fun.

  • Guilty Gear Xrd demo? Awwwwwww yeeeeaaahhhh.

  • Ryan the Lego Batman demo came out last week btw.

    Also will the Guilty Gear Xrd demo be available for a limited time only like the Japanese one?

    Also also, December rapidly approaches. I think it’s time we hear about next month’s PS+ games in full!

    • Hi FurryCurry (or should I say “Furi Kuri?”)! I’m pretty sure it was just the PS4 demo for LEGO Batman that came out previously.

      And this is subject to change without notice, but I believe the Guilty Gear Xrd Demo is limited-time-only, as you say!

      And not sure about our Plus schedule, but stay tuned!

  • Is there going to be a Thanksgiving/Black Friday flash sale?

  • Ggxrd demo, yes please

  • I’m going to have to try out that Geometry Wars 3 this week. I’m also glad all the major games were already released, my wallet couldn’t handle it anymore. Thanks for the post Ryan. Beyond!

  • I’ll probably pick up Pocket RPG this week but I am going to wait to see if there is any special sales first. Funds are limited this time of year.

  • I’m looking to buy a new ps3 bundle this week .. I have 1 ps3, 1 ps4 and 2 psVita how many systems can you have in your playstation account? ? I buy digital games all the time. Can I add a new ps3 to my account?

  • Question: Is Jetpac Joyride DX FREE like the original version?

  • It’d be nice to know the prices of these games before thy are on the store. I really dont understand why you guys keep them secret. But only some of them. No other industry in the whole world operates this way.

  • I tryed Guilty Gear Xrd demo with my japanese account and it rocks! Enjoy it guys!

    I see Sony keeps releasing PsOne old games, that’s great but what about old psp games for our Vitas? And japanese Imports?

  • Hey, my apologies in advance if I offend anyone,but any chance we can get some PSone classics that people would actually like to buy and play.

  • What’s new in that jetpack joyride deluxe eh?

  • all junk

  • Where did Tetris Ultimate go?

  • Any chance for a Black Friday sale next week?

  • Ryan,

    What about including the new PS Now releases on this list each week?

  • Keeping SUIKODEN II for when?

  • I’ll have to try out the Guilty Gears demo. I’ve never heard of the series before, but the game looks nice. Unfortunately, given that I’m not the biggest fighting game fan (Unless it’s PSASBR), Injustice will probably satiate me next month with PS+.

    Quick question, though:
    Any chance of Suikoden II and MediEvil 2 joining the PSOne Classics on PS3? People have been waiting for the former for quite some time, and I got the original MediEvil a while back and am looking to continue Sir Daniel’s journey.

  • YES! GUILTY GEAR! X-D I’ve been drooling to play it since that first preview blew me away! Is it 2-D? 3-D? You can’t tell! The line between the two has vanished! It’s so beautiful! *happy tears*

  • Just Persona Q for me this week. Oh wait… wrong place to talk about that… uh… Akiba’s Trip looks fun! Maybe I’ll get that down the line :D

  • lol, Barry Steakfries. That name cracks me up every time.

  • Do you know if us europeans are getting the Guilty gear demo?

  • Yknow what? I hate this post. It is useless and clements answers nothing that anyone asks. We arent looking for world premiere info, just little stuff. And he’s gone after 15 mins anyway. Just get rid of this stupid article if you cant put prices and do it correctly.

  • A any chance for a. Small demo of arkham knight at all?

  • This might be somewhat unrelated to this update on the 25th but I’ve been anticipating the release of Pinball Arcade Season 2 for PS4! Last I heard it was sent in for approval process. Any word on that Ryan?


  • I won’t mind playing Thomas Was Alone again.

  • Tetris got subjected to change without notice have. BEYOND!

  • “BEYOND ” !!! Beyond WHAT !?!? Bed Bath & Beyond! ?!? It’s the were you go !! PEOPLE have questions here! ! Would be nice if you answer !!

  • I want to know what games will be on discount next week on:(

  • I hope the Gessen x Hebijo DLC for Senran Kagura Dekamori is still due this week.

  • @jakekoloko001

    You can have up to two (2) systems activated for game content on PS3 and PS Vita.

    The PS4 does not have these limitations, as it uses a different system for content licensing.

    See this page for more info:®network

  • Hey Ryan,

    Just curious! What happened to “Tetris Ultimate”? It was announced for this week.

    Also can you let Grace know that he needs to go through the entire store and fix many many issues. I would love to go through all of them, but I don’t feel like writing a essay. I offered to help but Grace hasn’t contacted me via PSN. Please ask her to contact me and I can through it via PS Chat as we both go through the hundreds of issues.

  • More demos=more sales.

    Demo for destiny came out, buying that now. Probably a few of these too. Make more demos. I feel like less and less anymore.

  • Would love to see Puyo Puyo Tetris come out (speaking of Tetris).

  • Bleh, nothing for me this week. We seriously need some better PSOne/PSP/PS2 Classics. Like a GOOD old school rpg or something.

  • @33 : Dude! Enough with that already! <> CARES ABOUT YOUR “SUPER-PRO” ANALYSIS! Just leave the damn Store alone and go play some games!

    I’m sorry for bursting your bubble here, but…Grace Chen, Ryan Clements, Justin Massongill, Sid Shuman (and any other Sony employee for that matter)… they DON’T WANNA BE YOUR FRIENDS nor they care about a super-duper-mega-awesome PS Chat with you! >_>
    So STOP asking for PMs, Chats, Mails, Phone calls or Morse Code from them…because IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. -_-

    They are just people WORKING here. They don’t need to interact with us at a personal level and they don’t owe us anything. You’re only embarrassing yourself, by looking like a really really REALLY pathetic little guy with all that incessant whining. “Why hasn’t Grace call me back yet?” “If you want, I can chat with you…and teach you how to better do your job…because I’m über-cool!”. *sigh*

    Get a hint…and take a hike, buddy. They don’t want your “masterful input” nor they need it.

    Just…PLEASE…go play…something. And stop commenting on every post with that same ridiculous self-entitled argument.

    Thank You.

  • Boxing? Come on! Waiting on some REAL PS1 classics

    Suikoden 2
    Vandal hearts 1 and 2
    Megaman legends 1 and 2
    Jade cocoon
    Saga frontier
    Die hard trilogy

  • @17 & @31 : They better do something FREAKIN’ AWESOME…because all this secrecy is making me very uncomfortable. So I’m really hoping for something not less than SPECTACULAR to quench my thirst. Otherwise, I will be soooooo disappointed… =\

    @34 : I know, right? But Devs/Publishers can’t seem to understand that. =(

    @36 : We already have the Best Ones “from those thrilling days of yesteryear”… (=P)

    i.e. All the Final Fantasy Saga…and most of the Shin Megami Tensei Saga. ^_^

    I know, we need a lot more, but that should keep you entertained for around 6 months. Minimum.

    Although I wouldn’t mind some Star Ocean in there too. ;)

  • Picking up Akiba’s Trip at retail (switched my pre-order from the Vita version after they announced we were getting it on PS4), and Thomas Was Alone with that cross-buy offer. Need to look into Pocket RPG. Sounds like it could be fun.

    @ yowzagabowza: If this post doesn’t have the information you want, why do you keep coming here every week? They’re obviously not going to change it, as releasing pricing info isn’t the point of The Drop. That info is still subject to change up until the Store publish, hence why they don’t share it here (aside from the obvious retail titles that have pricing info available elsewhere, or games available for digital pre-orders that nail down that info early). Use a little common sense, please. You’re a broken record at this point, just like the guy asking for a Disgaea 2 sale every week.
    PS: Nice job avoiding the bad language filter by misspelling the word, rather than self-censoring it. You’re so awesome!

  • Some prices are announced early, so i dont see why all of them arent. If the prices aren’t set by two days in advance, that’s retarded. And i refuse to believe that’s the case. This is the ****iest post on the blog. Im asking for something that would help everyone, not just myself.

  • ****ing psyched about, Pocket RPG! Thank you!

  • @39 No we don’t.

    Breath of Fire 3
    Suikoden 2
    Grandia series (We only have the first one)

    That’s just to name a couple. The games you’re talking about most people played a million times already.

  • Might get Pocket RPG.

  • Geometry Wars 3 will be incredible just like its predecessors. I pre-ordered it last week. Also pumped for Aqua Kitty…

  • When will season two of The Pinball Arcade for the PS4 be available for purchase? Controller vibration and friends leader board are still missing from the game. This has been going on for way too long.

  • Going to make my way through Thomas Was Alone on the PS4. I wonder what’s new in the Deluxe version of Jetpack Joyride? The only other title I am slightly interested in is PocketRPG, but I am not complaining as the past 4 weeks have been CRAZY with nice releases (big and small). Nice to catch a breather sometimes.

  • What happen to onigiri online, is it still coming out this year.

  • @37, You remind me of me and I love you.
