The game returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions.
Now, Mickey and Oswald must join forces as true partners — Mickey with his magical paint brush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity.

This collection follows fan-favorite Jak and his sidekick Daxter through a series of action-packed adventures. The Jak and Daxter Collection blends action, shooting, driving, and platforming into one complete PS Vita package.

Jak-and-Daxter-HD-Collection-Confirmed-by-SonyEat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard – In Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard, videogame action hero Matt Hazard gets his chance to prove once and for all that he is the king of shooters when the new owner of mega game publisher, Marathon Megasoft, gives Matt his comeback role starring in a new title for next-gen consoles that pits him against all of his memorable foes from videogames past. In the world of Eat Lead, however, everything stops being a game and becomes reality when it is clear that someone is using the new game to bring about Matt’s death once and for all. With only the mysterious QA to help him, Matt must fight against a legion of Marathon Megasoft catalogue of videogame characters to keep it from being Game Over forever.

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Fluffy clouds and rainbows – what a nightmare! Being trapped in a lollipop world infuriates Giana, driving her to smash everything in her path… but the walls between dreams are thin. A tenebrous boneyard lurks just beyond the veil, soothing Giana’s temper and lightening her step.
Project Giana is a phantasmagorical platformer with contrasting themes. Twist one dream into another at will to transform the world and Giana, putting an array of world-warping tricks at your fingertips.

Storm – Manipulate wind, rain, lightning and snow to solve puzzles at your own pace, interacting with lush landscapes in each of the seasons to lead a seed to a new, happy home. Explore nature’s beauty or simply enjoy the ambiance as you float, blow and bounce a seed to the perfect place to take root.

PlayStation 2 Classic

Castlevania: Lament of Innocence – Konami’s famed vampire hunting series makes its debut on the PlayStation 2 with Castlevania: Lament of Innocence. It tells the story of the Belmont family’s first encounter with the dark lord Dracula, and connects the lineage of previous Belmont adventurers. Gameplay blends the series’ trademark 2D whip-cracking and platforming elements with a new detailed 3D environment.

Corvette Evolution GT – Evolution GT is a racing game that gives the player the opportunity to experience the life of a real racing driver, and the evolution of his alter ego throughout the course of his career. By choosing appropriate race tactics and driving styles, and placing well in the races, the player will grow in his ability to compete at an ever-higher level, gaining access to new racing cars as well as roadsters, coupès and eventually dream cars such as the Bugatti EB110 and the Pagani Zonda.

The Last Exorcism
(Releases June 18th on Blu-ray): Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is back in the relative safety of civilization and sent to live in a group home where she’s encouraged to leave her past behind and start a new life. Just as Nell settles in, she is tormented by the seductive demonic presence that once possessed her. She realizes that the evil force is back with unimaginably horrific plans which could only mean that her last exorcism was just the beginning.

Now vita users can finally stop complaining since this entire week is basically a Vita update with a terrible PS3 game (Matt Hazard)

I am a hardcore Castlevania fan!! I hope they make a HD remake of Castlevania SOTN I would love that ^_^ however I will be getting my digital Castlevania: Lament of Innocence. SO is PSASBR ever going to come out with new DLC??


62

Matt Hazard? Are you KIDDING me?

Huh. Guess D3Publisher needs the extra pocket change now that White Knight Chronicles II is being unplugged forever tomorrow. Not going to buy it, though. Or anything they publish, ever again.

Bitter? Me? Oh, you betcha. *mourns the loss of the full game we never got*

PS4 still has time to implement retrocompatibility through software emulation with PS3 games, PS2 games and PSX digital games through software emulation (which they already have in their Gaikai milk-off-more-money-from-players system) and decline Plus being mandatory to play online maintaining online playing free for everyone. I want my PS3 digital purchases through the PSN Store to be playable and DON’T WANT TO BUY IT AGAIN WITH THAT CHINESE SCAM SERVICE CALLED GAIKAI. If they don’t, I will give the thumbs down to PS4, use my PS Plus account to “buy” free PS4 games (no paid games) and only buy it after it has dropped it’s price dramatically or they add compatibility with PS3 in any way they want to and they decide to keep as valid my games collection. I encourage everyone that bought over 190 digital PS3 games supporting this company to do the same. RESPECT TO MY PS3 GAMES COLLECTION!

Will eventually pick up Epic Mickey 2 and Jak Collection for Vita. I know the Epic Mickey games got kinda bad reviews, but I really liked the story and creativity of the first one.

I would absolutely love to see Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning available on IGC in July!
PSN Plus Europe got it this month and it would be so awesome to see North America get it as well!

Also, discounted DLC for amalur would be greatly appreciated as well :D

Will the ‘Jak & Daxter’ games be available separately?? I’d love to play through the first one again, but have no desire for the others. $10 can be yours!

Oh nice Lament of Innocence is a great PS2 classic….also I’m looking forward to try out Giana Sisters demo.

Move to EU or Japan, because Sony’s not going to make it compatible for the NA region any time soon.

Also, even stupider question, but will those who own the PS3 versions get the Vita versions of the Jak and Daxter games for free?


77

Fantastic releases!!! Still missing crash and spyro for vita but I suppose I can wait for a little more.

Ports, remakes and indie. Almost all we ever see. BUT! Im just glad we are getting games! And Sony plz hold up to your 85 vita games by the end of the year. That’s at least 3 a week.


79

+ Loco4FourLoko on June 17th, 2013 at 4:44 pm said:

also isn’t there a D&D psn game that’s supposed to come out on the 18th also. Or did that get delayed?

+ MANNYFRESH1990 on June 17th, 2013 at 4:58 pm said:

Are we ever going to get more PSone classics on the vita cause i bought Legend of Dragoon for my old PSPgo but when it broke down and i bought a vita I couldn’t play it at all. So is there ever an update coming to play them soon.

@Rey, The Last Exorcism PART 2 comes out Tuesday, not part one from 3 years ago.

What about D&D???


83

+ jgrangervikings1 on June 17th, 2013 at 7:23 pm said:

Nice drop. I’m interested in Epic Mickey 2 and Jak and Daxter, but low on dough so it may be a while before I get ‘em. It’d be a great way to boost Vita sales if owners of the PS3 version could somehow prove their ownership and get some sort of discount on the Vita game purchase.

I’m probably the only person here who’d like to see this, but it’d be awesome to see PS+ give away a game like Tornado Outbreak because it’s fun for the whole family. Or, something like Sorcery because it might push up sales of PS Move equipment and give us PS Move owners something fun to play.

awesome jak & daxter for the PS vita ;D i wish silent hill collection would be on vita as well or at least on the PS store ;(

You know what would’ve been nice? IF Sony took this opportunity to “fix” the Jak & Daxter Collection, and finally add in Daxter, Jak X and Lost Frontier. ESPECIALLY with Daxter and Lost Frontier, as they’re the games in the series explicitly made for handhelds. It would be nice to see them return to the format for this Vita release of J&D Collection. I wish High Impact, Ready at Dawn, Sanzaru or SOMEONE would make a new one too. I just can’t be happy when it comes to Jak & Daxter. I would trade a thousand Last of Us’s for another Jak game. You know what the industry isn’t hurting for? Gritty, desaturated, mature, third person, cover-based shooters. Y’know what they barely seem to make anymore? PLATFORMERS. We need a fifth Jak game.


89

+ prs3030 on June 18th, 2013 at 9:31 am said:

dang, people are picky…30fps for a game is still pretty playable, and i’ve seen gameplay videos, so its perfectly fine. the only people who giveit bad reviews always say he same exact thing. “bad framerate at 30fps, poor controls, etc”, and those are people who played the e3 booth version. those ps vitas have been on constantly, been played , and the people playing them probably had cameras in the way. this is a handheld console, you should be lucky they even managed it in the first place.

It’s great and all but I’d love to hear if someone at Sony (or a respective position) is talking to Activision or whomever has the rights/permissions/whatever to Crash and Spyro getting on the Vita.
