The Drop: Week of February 18th 2013 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance takes the renowned Metal Gear franchise into exciting new territory by focusing on delivering an all-new action experience unlike anything that has come before. Combining world-class development teams at Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames, Metal Gear Rising brings two of the world’s most respected teams together with a common goal of providing players with a fresh synergetic experience that combines the best elements of pure action and epic storytelling, all within the expansive MG universe. Enjoy this week’s The Drop.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Developed through a partnership with Platinum Games and Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance pits cyborg against cyborg in battle that blazes past every human limit!

The main character, Raiden, was once feared as the child soldier “Jack the Ripper” on the front lines of the First Liberian Civil War. Now, his combat mastery is channeled through a cyborg body as the strikes from his high-frequency blade slice even massive assault drones in two. Raiden is contracted for VIP protection, military training and other duties by PMSCs (Private Military and Security Companies) in a developing country piecing itself back together after a bloody civil war. Little does he know that the stage is set for a clash with an enigmatic force of countless cyborgs.

Crysis 3 — Crysis 3 is a First-Person Shooter set within a frightening future New York City. The game is a sequel to the 2011 release, Crysis 2, continuing an unfolding adventure revolving around the symbiotic relationship between the wearer of the game’s iconic nanosuit, the current protagonist, and the memories of an earlier protagonist stored within the suit. Game features include sandbox shooter gameplay that allows players to choose their path, an upgradable nanosuit, expanded multiplayer options, an explosive arsenal of weapons, and improved graphics provided by the CryENGINE game engine.

Capcom Arcade Cabinet: Retro Game Collection — Capcom Arcade Cabinet offers you many of the greats from the Capcom gaming vaults all in one place. Browse through a library of classic games, now loaded with special features that extend the gaming fun. A “casual mode” geared towards newcomers and less score-minded players lets first-time gamers discover Capcom’s greats. Or, if you are a hardcore gamer, take on players from around the world in “score attack” and even play together in select titles that support online co-op!

Urban Trial Freestyle (Also for PS Vita) — A motorcycle stunt game, Urban Trials brings players to abandoned districts of a city where speed, agility and ability to improvise are the key to massive scores.


  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3
  • Urban Trial Freestyle (PS3 & PSVita)

PlayStation Portable

Generation of Chaos 3: Pandora’s Reflection — Dark clouds blanket the withered skies and block out the sun; cracked earth and choking fog rule the land. This colorless world, showing no signs of life, is known as Hades. The barren land is blasted by chilling winds that cut to the bone … This is where we meet our heroes — Yuri, a young girl cursed with a disease draining her life away; and Claude, her protective older brother who will stop at nothing to save her. As they travel in search of a cure, they find themselves embroiled in a conflict that will determine the fate of the world and, just maybe, the fate of the siblings. They’ll lose old friends, meet new friends, and travel on a path that will lead them to the very doorstep of destiny…

Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi — After 260 years of samurai rule, the shogunate’s hold on the country began to weaken as men ostensibly loyal to the emperor began to sow chaos and dissent throughout the nation. The Shinsengumi was formed to combat this rising tide of violence, and to protect the shogun and the people from dangerous ronin. As the country inches close to all-out war, Chizuru travels to Kyoto to find her missing father. She encounters both danger and the Shinsengumi, in quick succession. After learning that the Shinsengumi are also looking for her father, Chizuru goes under their protection. However, they soon find themselves in the midst of political intrigue, supernatural power struggles, and much more as they search desperately for the answer they need.

Vira-Lorr said:

I wonder if dragon_night stalks the psn blog just so he can be the first to be a baka repeating the same thing for the past 3 months.

Capcom Arcade Collection sounds pretty good. I’ll pick that up provided the price is acceptable. I’ll also probably pick up Metal Gear Rising at some point, but not Tuesday.

I will be picking up Metal Gear Rising limited edition along with Crysis 3. =) This will be a good week of gaming. I wonder what the PS3 game for ps plus is???? Anybody have a clue??

Edzo04ps said:

February 17th, 4:23 pm

@9 did you really just use baka? i was shocked when i read that and also very angry. knock it off you crazy weeaboo


February 17th, 4:29 pm

I’m expecting @ least 4g lte or 5g on a vita update. I also want FULL profile CUSTOMIZATION so i can play uncharted without the motion aiming as i’m unable to use the right stick without a 100% full face swap.

That’s triangle as up,square as left x as down and O as right which means the dpad functions get mapped to the face buttons…why,simple when looking on the left stick and moving on the right stick you’d be hard pressed to cross vita’s screen to access the face buttons or you could stop moving and die.

The only way i can play :uncharted,ninja gaden or gravity rush is with motion aim replacing the right stick unfortunatly golden abyss lacks a snap behind character button in gravity rush it’s dpad up and sigma it’s on the shoulder but uncharted lacks the re center ability.

As a southpaw gamer all i can do is play these games as 1 analog stick and face buttons….sadly sly lacks motion aim which is a poor substute for a real right stick or in my case aim on left face buttons mapped to dpad walk on right and dpad on face buttons.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, I have been waiting years for this. Already pre-orederd and I’m ready to be blown away by Platinum Game’s latest!

eggmiester28 said:

February 17th, 4:39 pm

nothing for me this week i may get Capcom Arcade Cabinet: Retro Game Collection but they are overpriced, and Generation of Chaos 3: Pandora’s Reflection interests me.

Ryumoau said:

February 17th, 4:40 pm

very weak drop aside from the naruto demo. And why are there still psp games being released? :/

TerraAshura said:

February 17th, 4:40 pm

@20 Um, you know 4G and 5G isn’t something software based…it’s hardware…you do know that right?

Ghostwize said:

February 17th, 4:43 pm

What?!!! KINGDOM HEARTS is being released?!!!

Fun Fact: After Jeffrey Dahmer ate his vegetables he burned the wheelchairs. :D

iDotDotDot said:

February 17th, 4:43 pm

Is Rising going to be available as a download or is it retail only?

I mean we know for a fact Crysis 3 is going to be on psn but it doesn’t say so here.


February 17th, 4:45 pm


Axecution said:

February 17th, 4:45 pm

lol the comment section in this post is actually ridiculous. xD Kingdom Hearts isnt coming out this week, LTE isnt something that can be added, nobody wants to reverse the face buttons and d-pad, who cares if he used the word baka…

It’s worse than the N4G comment sections rofl

TerraAshura said:

February 17th, 4:45 pm

@27 looks like Retail only. Normally the title has (Also on PSN) next to it if it’s available digitally.

yedra04 said:

February 17th, 4:46 pm

cmon we need crash bandicoot on vita!!! why if there says february 18th you update the store on 19th?

iDotDotDot said:

February 17th, 4:47 pm

Yeah i know it normally does but Crysis doesn’t have it either. I’m just going to hope its a typo and we can get some confirmation.

novoalucard said:

February 17th, 4:49 pm

Strikuh said:

February 17th, 5:00 pm

dodgedoors said:

February 17th, 5:01 pm

February 17th, 5:02 pm

If Da Say yes will you Still bye Crysis 3 lol No

Fedast said:

February 17th, 5:09 pm

Why more new games for the PSP than for the Vita? Sony should encourage developers so they develop games for the Vita.

MakoSOLIDER said:

February 17th, 5:10 pm

News! PSVita game announcements coming tomorrow! PS4 Wednesday!

TerraAshura said:

February 17th, 5:21 pm

@36 I’m sorry, what? I literally could not understand any of that.

KrazE94 said:

February 17th, 5:29 pm

Is Metal Gear Rising on PSN? Can you request Santa Monica Studio to put God of War 3 in PSN.

ZaGe-zAiKaNo said:

February 17th, 5:41 pm

Superstone said:

February 17th, 5:56 pm

USRevenge2 said:

February 17th, 6:11 pm

#9 did not just really use Baka in a English sentence… Does that even make sence, you don’t speak english then say a Japanese word in the middle when there is a english term for it. Hell not even the dub for the show Baka & Test use that word, they say stupid, idiot fool etc.
smh anyways
any word on Crash working on my PS Vita, This is complete non-sense.
Also crackle and crunchyroll on vita?
anyways, bought the white PS3 friday and added my free year of PS+ to my 2 weeks til expired PS+, then I realized I just got 15 months instead of 12 cause the promotion. lol Thanks ALOT!!!

Junoh315 said:

February 17th, 6:49 pm

@46, let people have their little quirks when typing up a message. I replace words in my head with Japanese words so it’s probably the same for them. The only difference between me and them is that I keep them in my head. Never mention dubs, they suck. They DO speak English words in the middle of Japanese sentences so why not the other way around?

Anyways, still waiting for Final Fantasy X but no idea when that’s coming out. I’ll probably check up on it later. Maybe they should make the PS3 capable of playing PSP games. I’d buy tons of games if that were the case. Of course the PS Store should release Crisis Core since that’s the main reason why I’d get a PSP. Had it for a little while but my PSP died.

Junoh315 said:

February 17th, 6:51 pm

Shinsengumi, huh? Ever since I started watching Gintama I laugh whenever I hear of the Shinsengumi. Only in my head of course since they were actually a powerful group.

ExHaseo said:

February 17th, 6:53 pm

I wonder how long it’s going to take dragon_night to realize that there are no Kingdom Hearts titles announced for PS3/PSN right now.
