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.
Wander

  • I’m really hoping that Tetris Ultimate is a cross-but title. I really don’t want to buy another tetris for the 100th time — especially since I already have this version on my PS4.

  • Don’t buy Tetris Ultimate.

    Especially if you have over 100 friends.

    Even more so if the digital is more than $10-15.

    and absolutely under no circumstances even contemplate having the merest notion of attempting to think about having it cross your mind to buy the game, until AFTER you have checked the reviews to make sure it’s not a broken piece of scrap game for some other reason.

    I contemplated buying Tetris Ultimate until I heard it screwed up at the 100 friend limit and you have to do hocus pocus to make it work. (Something along the lines of putting it on, signing out, playing a game, and then… I dunno, perform a blood sacrifice with pigeons… wait no that last part is a biblical cure for leprosy Leviticus 14 to be precise)

    So… all joking and snide comments aside, from what I’ve heard Tetris Ultimate on PS4 is freaking broken. I don’t expect the PS Vita version to not be broken because I haven’t heard of the PS4 version being fixed, so I’m just going to assume incompetence considering Black Flag had this problem, and Unity was released as a disaster, and apparently their interns were too busy to program the ability to suspend an online match and resume at a later point….

  • Sorry but I bought a next gen console for…next gen games.. yet 97% of your game library is comprised of these games that belong on old gen systems…

  • IndieStation.

  • Wow, Renegade takes me back to High School. Must purchase.

  • okay, Clements, your telling me the Escapists, Bones of the Shogun, and a game from freaking 1986 is too demanding for ps3 hardware? this isnt Cryisis HD being released, give us Ps3 users some cool games too, especially digital games!

  • Yes these games actually look good!

  • is there a problem with the psn??

  • Wander looks good but you should’ve given us wonder instead for free instead of these old garbage retro looking games come playstation now your just being greedy like xbox one now.

  • I want even MORE VITA GAMES!!! XDDDD

  • Wander looks very interesting.

  • I heard there’s an awesome game made by a handsome man coming to psmobile this week!

  • Must be a bunch of competition trolls around here….rating posts downwards. I say, disable the rating system.

  • wasn’t Metal Gear Solid V coming to PS Plus?

  • Any word on FFXIV Heavensward digital CE preorder? It’s already June and neither Squenix or you guys have said anything. We are getting anxious about it.

  • RAWR still no FF VII, sad panda am I, maybe next week, I am sad because this is the last month of Q2 and we haven’t heard a peep from you on it…

  • @54 WTF_Mystik Those big titles aren’t being made as often because they cost 10-20 million dollars to make. So companies like Konami are cancelling those games to make mobile games which take 30-3 mil to make, and people can pay anywhere from nothing, to hundreds of dollars.

    @57 Isenberg Sony isn’t making these games. The PS3 is WAY harder to develop for. That’s why the PS4 is made of more PC Architecture parts. So some devs just don’t see the value in spending way more money developing a PS3 version. Especially not while the PS4 is the fastest selling console ever and has more visibility gaming wise.

  • I think the admin of this site is in fact working hard in support of his site, for the
    reason that here every stuff is quality based information.

  • See a couple things here.

  • Sony – please stop punishing your customers after they get their money back from their bank after having their PSN account hacked.

  • Tetris Ultimate is $30!?!? Found this price on Amazon/GameStop. Since PS4 digital copy is $10, and vita will be $30, it’s safe to assume that this game will not be cross-buy. UbiSoft, I’m glad you are supporting the vita and keeping your word on this release but what is the matter with you? This approach seems odd in terms of business strategy.

  • Hey Ryan,

    Can you add what is coming to PS Now each week?

  • thegreendragon87

  • Whoa, whoa, Tetris is finally coming out for Vita. Finally. Andretail in NA? Wow, going to have to pick that up.

  • pablikenemi : while sony said they were coming out most are ports by the developer if i’m not mistaken. so unless the development of the port is being done by Sony you would need to talk with the developer/publisher

  • No sales this week?

  • Once again PS3 members get the shaft. had my new PS plus card for three months . Dont forget about us.

  • Please release the PSone classics Breath of Fire 3 and Valkyrie Profile on PS3 PSN, thank you so much.
