The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 5/9/2017

The most adorable group of heroes returns! LocoRoco Remastered launches May 9 on PS4.

Most platforming heroes are agile. Strong. They leap across harrowing chasms and sprint through crumbling vistas. In LocoRoco, things are a little different. Our heroes are adorable, and they love to sing. But that’s about it! Your job is to help them save the world in LocoRoco Remastered on PS4.

Originally released in 2006 on PlayStation Portable, LocoRoco charmed PlayStation gamers with colorful art, heart-warming music, and a unique world-tilting mechanic that helped the LocoRocos get around. LocoRoco Remastered brings that charm back into the spotlight with enhanced visuals and controls. If you’re new to LocoRoco, or you’ve been rolling through life ever since the original launch, this remaster is for you.

For a full list of new games coming to PlayStation, read on. And enjoy The Drop!
