The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 6/2/2015
The Drop

Not only does this week mark the beginning of a new PS Plus lineup, but a host of new games joins the PlayStation family, including the eye-catching Wander on PS4. Explore a tropical paradise from atop a griffin’s back, or plunge into the depths of the sea in search of untold wonders.

In Wander, players can take on different forms to swim, run, or fly through a beautiful world just begging to be explored. Have you ever wanted to roam the vast greenery of an island utopia as a walking tree? Well, now you can. And, as mentioned above, griffins are also involved, which just sweetens the prospects.

Meanwhile, Super Exploding Zoo and Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition arrive on PlayStation, and both are free for PS Plus members. Exploding animals and undead samurai? Yes, PlayStation has all that and more this week.

For the full list of new games, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

New PlayStation Games This Week

Arcade Archives Renegade
PS4 — Digital
Renegade is an action game that was released in 1986. In Renegade, players control a vigilante (named Mr. K), who fights a variety of street gangs on his way to save his girlfriend. The Arcade Archives series has faithfully reproduced these masterpiece arcade games for PS4.
Class of Heroes 2G
PS3 — Digital
Starting summer school at Crostini Academy of Adventuring Arts, your school in Class of Heroes 2G, you’ll realize this isn’t your typical place. You’re tests are epic boss monsters, your teachers will get you geared for a life-or-death battle in the labyrinth, and your friends stick right by your side to level up.
The Escapists
PS4 — Digital
The Escapists is an award-winning prison break simulation that provides players the opportunity of experiencing a light-hearted insight into everyday prison life. Whilst the aim of the game is simply to escape, the detail is in the execution. (Don’t say the word execution too loud in a prison).
Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition
PS4 — Digital
Skulls of the Shogun is a mash-up of turn-based strategy and fighting-game flare, scientifically engineered for lightning-quick rounds, thoughtful strategic play, and a frequently inappropriate sense of humor with its tongue planted firmly in cheek. And whether you’re into single or multiplayer, Skulls has you covered.
Sparkle Unleashed
PS4, PS3, PS Vita — Digital (Three Way Cross Buy)
A secluded world of mystery has succumbed to an ominous darkness. You must travel through the fallen lands, light magical braziers, and banish the darkness once and for all. Unlock amazing powerups and use the ones you like the most to overcome increasingly challenging levels.
Super Exploding Zoo!
PS4, PS Vita — Digital (Cross Buy)
Round up herds of exploding animals and rampage around 80 destructible levels — defend your precious egg by slamming your herd into the greedy alien marauders and blowing them up! Use the special skills of different animal types to slow alien progress or access new areas!
Tetris Ultimate
PS Vita — Digital, Retail
The iconic puzzle game arrives on PS Vita, and is better than ever in Tetris Ultimate. With nine exciting modes, fun new features, and unique visuals, the evolution of this game is the ultimate must-have on the go.

  • Enjoy!

  • Wander looks pretty nice, looking forward to trying it out.

  • looking forward to The Escapist and Wander!!

  • I think i’m most excited for Wander this week. The game really intrigues me with it being an MMO but it seems so different from any other MMO out there.

  • hi Ryan, do you know how much does Wander cost ? i still not finishing the witcher 3 because it is very long to finish so i am level 24 right now.. i am very excited for E3 in two week away. Batman Arkham Knight coming in June. can’t wait to play it

  • Wander looks interesting, I’ll look it up some. Also, Tetris on Vita? I’m surprised because the 3DS version came out like 6 months ago. :p

  • Great week. Skull of the Shogun and Wander for me. And of course, more Witcher.

    Also, hi Ryan!

  • Is Tetris Ultimate a cross buy title?

  • Tetris… on the Vita.. with trophies…about time.. about time..

  • @4 Wander will be $24.99

  • sorry @5 wander will be $24.99

  • Tetris Ultimate will be cross-buy with PS4 version?

  • What @helleven11 said.

  • I need to try out the Wander.

  • @11, lol. i am not sure if it worth 25 bucks because i noticed it is MMO. i never play MMO games before. i am more into Open World Action/RPG games, Action Adventure games and some sports games

  • Oh wow, I really hope Wander ends up being worth a purchase.

  • Wander looks good but Withcer 3 is keeping me occupied right now

  • If a user can tell us the price of a game, surely Sony can…. Keep “listening to feedback” guys. It’s a simple request and makes freakin sense.
    And Ryan, just don’t respond to people. I’d rather see no replies at all than the inane crap you write.

  • Any chance Tetris Ultimate for Vita is a retroactive crossbuy for those that bought it on PS4?

  • When the PlayStation store updates on Tuesday will we get the full listing of sales items on the blog or are we stuck with having to dig through the store to see what available. Adding store buttons to the PlayStation store update page was a good idea if they are an addition to what was there before but they are poor replacement.

  • when the hell is episode 3 of tales from borderlands coming out

  • Let’s get Neverwinter brought to PS4 also.

  • Wander looks really interesting. I want it.

    And oh emm gee Arcade Archives Renegade! I LOVE Renegade. I must have this as soon as it is up.

  • Here’s to hoping for the new month Resonance of Fate and 3D Dot Game Heroes gets added to PSNow. Instead of more games no one wants.

  • #DonaldDuckGoinQuackersPS2onPSstore















  • #MsPacManMazeMadnessonPSstore




















  • More ps1 games please

  • ImmortalSandwich


  • @15: Yup, minus the sports! Though, $25 is not a bad price for a game, but MMOs,,,,,,puke Still enjoying The Witcher 3

  • TheNastyChocobos

    any news about FFXIV Heavensward pre-orders? :/

  • PlayStation should get the rights to DJ Boy (1989) and make it online that would definitely be a throwback with friends please PlayStation consider this one day :/ please oh please yours truly the customer :)

  • Or not DJ Boy my bad I meant the B. Rap boys now that game was awesome B Rap Boys !!!!! Please PlayStation

  • is tetris cross-buy?

  • Mortal Kombat X for PS3 has been delayed yet again for those that come here and wonder what happened.

    It’s release window has been pushed back to a place holder of 12/31/2015 but that just means it’s sometime this year and they don’t have a release date to provide since there working on getting that version working.

    But those that haven’t upgrade to a PS4 and still own a PS3 it’s really time to upgrade your holding us back on PS4.

  • Rapturesassassin

    #StopWithTheHashtags :3
    Anyways nothing for me this week. I was interested in wander but after number 10 said i will be passing. Anyways one more week till elder scrolls: online woot woot. Then batman.

  • I haven’t found any mention of PS4 trophies for the new Wander game. Anyone know if yes/no?

  • Will we be able to pre-order Heavansward this week Ryan?

  • I see Wander, but where’s Agro? :p

  • And Studio Hamster got me again. I’m looking forward to playing Renegade. It’s considered to be one of the first Beat’em Up titles ever made.

  • I also would like to know about the Heavensward Preorder. Cant get any answers anywhere on if its coming to PS$ preorder or not.

  • Please bring the Tetris PS1 game to PSN

  • I really hope Tetris is cross-buy. I just bought it on my PS4 not realizing the Vita version was coming out so soon >.>

  • KingBuddhis0625

    Give us SSX Tricky and NBA Streets Volume 2

  • RENEGADE is an awesome classic, but I still have to pass for $7.99. They need to keep the price around $5 if they wish to sell to a larger audience. This is coming from someone who is truly passionate about classic games.

    These oldies are great, but after a play or two you sort of forget they are even there. Now if it were Final Fight or Double Dragon you would be able to playthrough with a friend and it would offer some value via co-op replayability.

  • I still want to know what will happen with the price of the dlc song “electric angel” of project diva F2nd, for those who have the song club dlc, because isn’t working with it, it’s intentional or did you just forget about it?

  • Tetris ….Wooot.
    Of course, I wore that out on Gameboy.

    Freedom Wars, Thank You for the inevitable sale since its a Monster Hunter clone.
    Better than expected for story/game, but almost noone on a game released less than a year ago.
    Must be that hype I referred to, you guys do so badly at.

    Has a ton of potential though, on the greatest handheld yet.
    Hope Sony can market it better.

  • can someone tell me if Tetris ultimate is cross buy. i already own the PS4 version already.

  • Recently there was a flash sale.ps4 moto gp14 price never. Changed to 4.80. Will this ever be rectified

  • Wondering about the Tetris crossbuy as well, can’t wait to try out Wander :)

  • At peoples asking about if tetris crossbuy,the game have retail release,the box don’t show the cross buy logo,is a ubisoft game,ubisoft don’t have crossbuy games at all.ubisoft not going to make a retail version of the game and then give free the game at previus owners.
