The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 4/29/2014

Ryan Clements's Avatar Posted by Senior Specialist, SIEA Social Media

The Drop

Enchanted realms, haunted halls, and outlandish fighters join the gaming family this week with another robust lineup of new games coming to PlayStation.

Harken, fantasy lovers, and take note: Child of Light launches this week on PS3 and PS4. This tribute to old-school JRPGs follows the melancholic story of Aurora, daughter to an Austrian duke and visitor to the strange realm of Lemuria. Lost and brave, this little hero embarks on a quest to vanquish the Black Queen and reclaim the Sun, Moon, and Stars. The developers at Ubisoft Montreal have taken great measures to ensure this is one of the prettiest games to debut in recent memory.

And for those that pine over a good scare, Daylight arrives on PS4. This procedurally generated horror game follows Sarah Gwynn as she works her way through skin-crawling environments, outrunning specters with only the light from her phone to guide her.

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

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Bust-a-Move 4
Child of Light
Daylight
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

Another console only Yu-gi-oh game. I’ll give the demo a try but I really want to have a new game on my Vita (or 3DS).

FifthDream said:

Im sure spiderman will revitalizing the old web swinging feel good factor that itvhad before. Bringing back the realistic web attaching on building and swingin around the city in older spiderman games. Which i spent HOURS AND HOURS on just swinging around the country, not caring about anything else. The most fun in a spiderman games is now reborn. SWINGING

gerneric123 said:

April 27th, 11:02 am

The devs behind Scourge: Outbreak said it was getting delayed due to Gamespy’s closure.

klleristonr17 said:

April 27th, 11:05 am

Rambo and it seriously? They should ban this atrocity they call the game.!!

Lucent85 said:

April 27th, 11:05 am

Wow. Didn’t know we get Daylight this week. That’s two Lights in one week. =D

NX_Nytrux said:

April 27th, 11:05 am

Child of Light, yes!!! Where are the PS2 Classics?

Lackshmana said:

April 27th, 11:06 am

Suikoden 2 was recentlyrate by the ESRB for PS3.

I am holding my money to buy copies on PSN for myself and all my friends.

Lackshmana said:

RonZombie91 said:

April 27th, 11:08 am

Can’t wait for Spider-Man on PS4! Now if we could just get Ultimate Spider-Man as a PS2 classic!

RagingMexicano87 said:

April 27th, 11:09 am

Anybody know if Raiden 4 Overkill has trophies??

samv33 said:

April 27th, 11:09 am

Lot of games this week, wow. And not to add even more words to each listing, but knowing the developer/publisher would be nice as well. Like I can’t remember if Daylight is the Atlus game.

OnelShot said:

April 27th, 11:11 am

Am certainly paying attention to Child of Light and Daylight (gotta see what Anthony Giagos been doing).

King_Omega_34 said:

April 27th, 11:14 am

Cool. Definitely checking out Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels and Child of Light.

Tinye310 said:

April 27th, 11:19 am

O.o bust a move – I haven’t played that since the first one. I hope it’s available on Vita

Tinye310 said:

April 27th, 11:20 am

kudubik said:

No Suikoden II ? Sad Panda….

toru248okada said:

Dear Playstation Powerhouse,

Please tell me that the reason Magic the Gathering isn’t coming to Playstation platforms this year is because Hearthstone is coming? eh? Hopefully both will come to PS :)

Blacq_Soul said:

April 27th, 11:22 am

definitely considering that yu-gi-oh game mainly bc it has classic yu-gi-oh and GX. not a fan of the later series

hawjboi2009 said:

April 27th, 11:22 am

hey Ryan Clement, any info about Watch Dogs available for pre-order in PSN Store ? can’t wait to play Daylight on ps4 but ughh i have only 10.50 left as SEN wallet.. that shame for it cost 11.99 instead 9.99

TooLegit505 said:

April 27th, 11:30 am

I’ll bet you guys Wipeout, Uncharted, and Gravity Rush are still free PS Plus games. Will they every not be? Are they doomed to be on there forever? Why can’t they be switched with newer games? They have been on there forever, ever since I got my system. PLEASE REMOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

eggmiester28 said:

April 27th, 11:33 am

mmm Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels interests me hopefully its better then the last ps3 yu-gi-oh game.

Husteen said:

April 27th, 11:34 am

child of light – will definitely get (finally a game where we can fly!)

spiderman 2 – might get

daylight – will possibly get. have to see more of it

also, i already watched that making the music video for child of light. the game looks incredible, and the music sounds so lovely. i didn’t know there was a preorder bonus for that game, i’ll have to check it out.

WOW I am so impressed with Child of Light now. I absolutely LOVE Coeur de Pirate!! She’s my favorite artist. I didn’t know she started doing video game music, haha, this is so cool. I suppose I can’t live in Montréal, listen to Coeur de Pirate, love JRPGs and still not buy Child of Light… It’s not a choice anymore, I’ll simply have to buy it! I’m sure I’ll love it, it looks amazing!

Fedast said:

April 27th, 11:49 am

Thanks for the Drop Ryan. A suggestion, I think the site would look better with the images inside the cells with the game description.

italodancemp3 said:

April 27th, 11:50 am

What? Sony? You’ve got to be kidding me?!?!? No PS Vita game this week? What? Hello?! What’s wrong with you? We want daylight on Vita.

italodancemp3 said:

April 27th, 11:52 am

I won’t keep my PS Plus for next month lol no vita game and no vita discount this week.

Mando44646 said:

April 27th, 12:06 pm

I still don’t see why Child of Light isnt on Vita. It’d be beautiful on that OLED screen.

Also, hope there are good Vita sales this week to make up for ignoring Vita in the Easter sale and 2 months of downright horrid IGC additions. Someday maybe Sony will give it the attention it deserves to succeed

Praxcelis said:

April 27th, 12:26 pm

Know what? It’s a great time to own a PS3! It may now be old news to many, but I just bought my PS3 two months ago and I have enjoyed every single day of game play since. I pre-ordered Child of Light and can’t wait for it!

The Vita Batman 75th anniversary sale games…. They are not on sale anymore. Why???

ps_psychedelic said:

April 27th, 12:56 pm

Daylight for me it is, hopefully tho’, it gets a discount for PS+ (“oh you’re a cheap $$$!!@$@$” = Yes, I am).

And like somebody said May is killer, many good games coming in all platforms, specially a little something for Wii U the 30th.

TWODEEEE said:

April 27th, 12:59 pm

yu-gi-oh please. im glad this is a mix of all the yugioh style. been waiting for this since i saw it on the xbox

WilHiteWarrior said:

April 27th, 1:02 pm

Sony, I’m quite disappointed in you. Last week it was made possible to download all PS1 and PSP games on the Vita. But apparently this was an accident… so you undid it. Accident or not, it was a good thing. You could have just left it that way and made all vita owners very happy but you didnt. Furthermore, if it can be done so easily that someone could do it by accident, it proves that you could do it if you wanted to, you just don’t. That’s some Microsoft level stuff right there.
