The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 5/26/2015
The Drop

The iconic Street Fighter series, known across the world for its razor-sharp gameplay and devoted fan community, is coming to PS4 this week in the form of Ultra Street Fighter IV. Prepare for the definitive edition of this legendary, tournament-grade competition.

Ultra Street Fighter IV on PS4 comes packed with every character, every level, and every piece of DLC released thus far, and the team has worked to eliminate input lag so the game would be more than capable of representing at tournaments.

If you’d rather fuse elements and sling spells, look no further than Magicka 2, which is also launching on PS4 this week. This top-down adventure cranks up the friendly fire and tasks you (and your friends) with decimating enemies with murderous magicks. Watch your aim, though — you don’t want to turn those close buddies of yours into a sizzling pile of digital bones.

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

  • Is Megaman 8 available for Ps4?

  • ^Sadly, PS4 doesn’t seem to be able to run ps1 games. But you could can still play them on PS3/vita/PStv.

    I’m just happy they are still releasing ps1 games on PSN.

  • USFIV *-*… I need this on my PS4… please release a Vita version too.

  • happy for mega man 8 would love the collections original and x possibly with some new features evan a direct port. now im waiting for legends, 7, legends 2, azure dreams

  • Nice week with some nice games minus SF4 recycled for PS4.
    Anyway I’m looking forward to Badland…game got my interest.
    Also Megaman 8…haha sweet.

  • Thank you so much for the Arcade Archives, I hope there’s two or three every week, or at least one, thanks again.

  • I wish Playstation would also tell us what sale is coming soon instead of just “new arrivals” coming to the PS store.

  • Hey Sony wish you guys would drop these on Fridays when its going to be a long weekend due to holidays. Working people would love it!!!!!

  • Yes the day is finally upon use! USFIV for PS4 is here!

  • @10 It does support both analog sticks on the DualShock 4 and they do it extremely well. The Japanese version of this came out in the Fall of 2014 and it was amazingly good. I will say this though, getting 100% of trophies in this is absurdly easy, all but 2 you do via options menu, the last two are getting the high score and posting it to the leaderboard. I got all trophies on my first game! It is a must buy for any Crazy Climber fan, its basically arcade perfect!

  • Does anyone know how much Mega Man 8 will be at launch on the 28th. It is probably going to be either $5.99 or $9.99 depending on who has the most say on the pricing points.

  • @52 if the lineup in North America is the same as Japan, there will be atleast a dozen more coming up and then there will be plenty more still to be announced. In Japan, it is being done in phases, most of these games came out in the Fall of 2014, but lately it looks like N. America is getting them nearly at the same time as Japan.

  • Has there been any news on when the Final Fantasy XIV : Heavensward pre-orders will be available through the PSN store? It became available last week in Japan and the early access release date is in 24 days.

  • Please bring these ps1 classics to the store:

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

    Also, please add more ps1 classics to the PLAYABLE vita library. I want BLOOD OMEN on my vita already!

    What would it take to get the Simpsons and x-men arcade games onto the vita? They’d be perfect on the go.

  • Was hoping Ultra Street Fighter IV would be up by midnight. Still waiting for it to become available.

  • Any word on when Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward should be showing up on the playstation store? :(

  • A bit disappointed that USFIV isn’t a retroactive cross-buy. I’ve bought this game too many times to do it again.

  • sabdnadainocente

    Lets play Magicka 2! Add!
    PSN: sabdnadainocente

  • It is already 15:00 hours ET and the game is not available…

  • What time ? Waiting for game of thrones.

  • USFIV …Time please.

  • I see no ultra street fighter >_<

  • Me neither Santesyu

  • It is available now :)

  • Any chance that badlands supports multiplayer in the pstv like nidhogg and spelunky? Or is it limited to being a vita version with only ad hoc network play?

  • HollieMcCarthy54

    My last pay check was 9500 dollar working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do.. goo.gl/O0Tn65
