The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 5/12/2015
The Drop

A bittersweet story of lost friendship, a world embroiled in strife, and… an interstellar soup empire! These are just a few of the experiences coming to PlayStation this week, starting with a standalone version of The Last of Us: Left Behind.

For those that have yet to experience the touching prequel to The Last of Us, look no further than the standalone version of Left Behind. This powerful chapter follows Ellie largely before the events of the main game, and explores her close friendship with Riley before the two girls part ways. The award-winning team at Naughty Dog once again blends tense, survival-action gameplay with reflective story sequences to craft a brilliant complement to The Last of Us.

Also on the way is Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, which brings the well-loved JRPGs to PS4. Return to Spira and embark on an exhilarating quest to free the world from a terrible threat — and play some Blitzball along the way!

Lastly, Nom Nom Galaxy hits PS4. The next entry in the PixelJunk series blends different game genres together and tasks you (and your friends) with managing an intergalactic soup empire. Yum.

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

    @gohan16ken you ask the same things a few times a week. Give it a rest.

    Half of what you are asking doesnt even make sense!
    Ps1, ps2, ps3 emulator app. Sony is a company that needs to make cash. They created PlayStation NOW for the EXACT purpose you are talking about.

    Can you make PSnow more like iTunes. Oh yeah. I am sure they will get right on that ‘cuase its not like it wasn’t 3+ years in the making.

    Another two or three things you list they are already.

    BUT I agree with you about the 2 step verification.

  • TheHerbinator75

    I guess I’m going to have to look into getting a PS4 at some point over the next few monthsdue to new game releases for PS3 seem to have really began drying up.

  • TheHerbinator75

    What I don’t understand is why so many developers are taking the time to do a Vita port of a PS4 title but not a PS3 version too. Makes no sense at all.

  • Double Dragon and Toren for me. I wonder how much they cost… Maybe 9.99 & 14.99 respectively ?

  • Project Cars! Finally!

  • Possibly picking up Toren, that one looks interesting. Other than that picking up the TowerFall expansion. Looking forward to The Witcher and Magicka 2. Good month.

  • Hey all,

    Was reading a lot of the request on here and I thought I could just share some of the games I wish would be released on the PSN:

    Tales of Eternia
    Both Star Ocean games that came out for the PSP
    Legend of Lagaia
    Brave Fencer Musashi
    Mega Man Legends,…BOTH of them

  • Toren looks interesting. Ico/Shadow of the Colossus feeling to it. I’ll definitely be getting that.

  • @rmasuda,

    There is an article about Toren from last week. I believe that the developer stated the game would be $9.99.

  • Will there be a update in the future that allows the ps4 to connect an external hdd for extra storage for games?

  • Man, $50 for Final Fantasy X. I feel like i’m being robbed. Hopefully it’ll drop in price rapidly like the PS3 version.

  • I hope you release a new arcade game every week like Double Dragon, and keep releasing all the 80’s and 90’s arcade games, thank you so much.

  • Lost Orbit !!!…probably getting it on release.

  • even though Ellie said that Riley died There is a slight chance she could be alive. I mean they didn’t show her dying in the DLC, for all we know she could be roaming around in Boston or something looking for her while Ellie was with Marlene for those three weeks. They got bitten the same day, maybe there was a cure in that whiskey bottle or maybe their will to stay alive kept her going. It’s a possibility I’m just saying.

  • Definitely getting Toren! Looks amazing and it’s a steal, only 9,99…

  • DarkTwilightGun

    Can you tell us what sales will go live on Tuesdays the day before? I want to get Tokyo Ghoul Root A season or Dark Souls 1 dlc, but I don’t want to waste money and see that say Sword Art Online or resident evil 4, or heck DMC HD collection will be on sale cheap the next day. I just hate when I get something and something I’ve been waiting to get longer but don’t have the money for goes on sale the next day. Really the only way I get to find out is on Tuesdays when I get on the store

  • Oh second thought, my account is still blocked. If you see the comment, it doesn’t mean I can comment again. I take back what I said, fix this now PS blog team. I’ll be using this sub account until then.

  • When the store will be updated?

  • In how many hours or at what time does the store update ?, it is now the 12th may and i so badly want to purchase and download and play Project cars :), thanks for any answers :).

  • TheHerbinator75

    I mean this will all due respect, but the countless times in the past when people have asked Ryan specific questions, has anyone actually gotten an answer other than Ryan saying that he’ll check on it with whoever he says he needs to?

  • #VITA

  • I think IT will be updated at 3pm, but I really hope I am wrong

  • Hey everyone I will be having a $50 psn card giveaway once I reach 100 followers on twitch. Just follow to enter..mr__Dusty

  • Where is this Project cars lol, it is well into the 12th and still nothing added on the usa store pages :(, can we get an official answers as to when it is added please.

  • Hi:
    Double Dragon on Arcade Archives is GREAT! I hope these Games won’t cost more than $2.00 Dollars (Games from almost 40 Years ago!) and I’m sure a LOT of people will buy it.
    I haven’t seen something related to “Arcade Archives” on PlayStation 4? Is this new? Well, I have some suggestion:

    Double Dragon,
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Turtles in Time,
    Captain America and the Avengers (Sale guarantee this season),
    Aliens vs Predator,
    Captain Commando,
    Killer Instinct (Almost impossible, I know),
    Street Fighter II – Champion Edition,
    Mortal Kombat,
    Mortal Kombat II,
    Solomon’s Key,

    AND, you SHOULD let Us play ALL the Games already bought from another PlayStation Systems on the PlayStation 4. It’s Nonsense what you do right now. It’s like buying an Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus and won’t be able to play Apps or Games released on earlier iPhones…

  • Anyone know what time project cars will be available to download today?

  • Im waiting for it since midnight, they usually release at midnight… If I had knew, I would have got it from the store, I already added money to ps store wallet lol, gosh…. Well as I saw earlier, the new games from ”the drop” will be added with the new update. So we have to wait this update in order to get the new games in ps store.

  • Everything is out in the store from the list except PC…great

  • you are right n0rby_25… Only Project cars is not in the store yet =_=. My friends bought it at store and that makes me angry because i already added money to ps wallet…I hope we are going to get Project cars quick.

  • I can’t find Double Dragon.

  • Will Arcania be cross-save with the PS3 version?
