The Drop

Normally when you forget your backpack on the way to the bus stop, you either leave it behind or run back home to get it. In Nia’s case, however, her backpack is a living monster named V. And V is trying real hard to catch up to Nia before it’s too late. Also, he may start the apocalypse along the way… All part of the fun in MonsterBag, which launches this week exclusively on PS Vita.

MonsterBag is a colorful, charming puzzle game about avoiding the humans that stand between Nia and her backpack. It’s also a little terrifying, and will require your full arsenal of skill and wit to get through. In the process, you may or may not begin the apocalypse, which is a pretty awful thing to start over a forgotten backpack. As a bonus, it’s free for PS Plus subscribers this month!

Also, the critically-acclaimed action RPG bastion is coming to PS4 this week. If you got a super-charged kick out of Transistor last year, see the original project that put developer Supergiant Games on the map.

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

Aaru's Awakening
Bastion
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin
Element4l
Krinkle Krusher
MonsterBag
Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones
Tower of Guns

New PlayStation Games This Week

Aaru’s Awakening
PS4, PS3 — Digital (Cross Buy)
When Aaru’s Awakening started out as a school project at the University of Reykjavík, the team wanted to create an original platformer. They thought the genre is congested, so new ideas were essential. Inspired by the teleportation gun in Unreal Tournament, the team came up with the idea of a teleportation themed platformer.
Bastion
PS4 — Digital
Bastion is an action role-playing experience that redefines storytelling in games, with a reactive narrator who marks your every move. Explore, upgrade weapons, and fight your way to victory.
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin
PS4, PS3 — Digital, Retail
The definitive edition of Dark Souls II, including all the Dark Souls II content released to-date in one package. Upgraded visuals leap from 30 frames per second to a targeted 60 frames per second with 1080p gameplay, adding a whole new level of smoothness.
Element4l
PS Vita — Digital
Element4l is an immersive and experimental platform game, with a strong focus on flow and smooth gameplay, wrapped in an exceptional soundtrack by Mind Tree. In Element4l, you control four elements that are bound together on a journey to shape life. Your only hindrances are nature and the sun. It takes a different, innovative approach to classic platform games and challenges you to rearrange your reflexes.
Krinkle Krusher
PS4, PS3, PS Vita — Digital (Three-Way Cross Buy)
Krinkle Krusher is an action castle defense where you cast elemental spells to defend your kingdom from twisted and hungry creatures called Krinkles.
After several generations of peace, they happen to come back exactly when the Ancient Tree bears its first fruits in centuries, and of course a cake was made from it.
MonsterBag
PS Vita — Digital
Forgetful Nia leaves behind her monster backpack, V, on her way to the bus stop. In a world afraid of monsters, help V catch up to Nia while avoiding being seen by the humans. Oh, yeah! Watch out for the apocalypse.
Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones
PS4, PS3, PS Vita — Digital (Three-Way Cross Buy)
Stealth Inc. 2 is a puzzle platformer where you play the role of a clone escaping a sinister and high-tech testing facility. Stealth Inc. 2 tests both your brain and your reflexes across 60 varied levels linked together in a sprawling overworld. Death is never more than a few moments away, but one of the few advantages of being a clone is that death isn’t all that permanent.
Tower of Guns
PS4, PS3 — Digital (Cross Buy)
Tower of Guns is a fast-paced, bullet-hell, first person shooter with randomized levels and enemies, power-ups, epic bosses, and tons of unlockable items and weapons. You never know what to expect next! It is a pure FPS experience for players who just want to shoot stuff, battle gigantic bosses, collect loot, and upgrade their abilities.

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

      Enjoy! Bastion is a classic. I haven’t played the Stealth Inc. games yet but they look fantastic.

  • Hello Ryan, any word if Bastion will be on Vita? I thought it was gonna be crossbuy.

  • cristian_h_r

    Can’t wait to play Stealth Basta… I mean Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones.
    Beyond!!!

  • Are you guys going to release an official statement in whether or not our VITA claim emails are legit? There is a LOT of confusion going on with this and we all would really like to know.

  • veryhoudini11

    This is a crazy good line up. Not a single game I don’t plan on buying. Bastion especially.

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

      Awesome, thanks so much for saying so! Hope you enjoy it all.

  • RetroDaddySlim

    Hey Ryan,

    can you give us any info on Migthy No.9 game and when it may come.
    Game was planned for release in April.

    Also, any news on Oddworld New n Tasty for ps3?
    It was scheduled to come early march with Xbone release, but nothing yet. Many ps3 users are dying to get this game.

    Happy Easter to everyone!

    • Ryan Clements

      Hello RetroDaddy!

      Unfortunately I don’t have any updates on either of those games. I understand your frustrations and will keep an ear out.

      Cheers!

  • Monster bag looks really cute!

  • Are we going to be able to Pre load Dark Souls 2?

  • vinilegionario

    @nirvana31591: Yakuza 5 is PS3 Only, bro

  • veryhoudini11

    @retrodaddyslim it’s usually better to ask the developers directly. If you dont have a twitter, its extremely useful in this way. You usually can get an update or see that they already answered recently. All I could find was in January the devs said mighty no 9 was almost done. Not helpful at all tho.

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

      Good point, sometimes Twitter is a great way to ask developers questions directly. Totally agree.

  • KeizerGodzilla

    And no Easter sale?

  • RetroDaddySlim

    @22

    Thanks, veryhoudini.

    Yeah, I use twitter and facebook to check on developer latest news on game development update.
    Been checking Oddworld Inhabitants lots of time lately, they just say game is coming very soon, thats all.

    Mighty No.9 is another awesome game Im looking forwards to play.

    I was just hoping Ryan have more insight on upcoming games, maybe some Easter Bunny present news. :)

  • Any news on DLC for Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires?

  • death_nation100

    Woohoo for Stealth Inc 2 ! I thought they’ll never have a sequel .

  • Can’t wait

  • PainOfSarrow

    Stealth Inc 2 … Nice had no clue 2 was even coming.

  • Florensius1682

    Easter sale please and include gta v ps4 sales :)
    Stil playing bloodborne n its a nightmare game for me, but very good game indeed.

  • DesertAss2in

    RYAN! DON’T FORGET THE FREDERICK PROPHECIIIIIIIIIIIES!

  • Jake8bitjoystik

    Yakuza 5 is only on PS3 in Japan so I would not hold your breath for a PS4 version. The PS3 version is coming to the US. Yakuza 0 is out in Japan on both PS3 and PS4 but a Us release has not been announced so buy Yakuza 5 and show SEGA that there is a demand for Yakuza games over here.

  • Mortal Kombat X next week! Should I wait for the Komplete Edition instead?

  • vanillamoose

    I love Bastion! I played it on my Mac back when I bought it from one of the first humble bundles. However I do intend on double dipping for this game because I’m a bit of a trophy hunter ;)

  • whereymyconary

    I want yakuza zero! Yeah I plan to get 5 when it gets released in the states to show support. just wish they’d announce a date. My ps3s been sad lately with the lack of use since bloodborne came around.

    Have to check out bastion. Transistor was one of my favorite games of 2014. That and yakuza ishin

  • Skater_Ricky

    I also like to know if this email is legitimate as well for a PS Vita settlement.

    Also when is Tower of Guns coming to PS Vita? I thought it was coming out for all 3 system’s at the same time.

  • DoomsdayTARDIS

  • Ryan, do you know if we are getting the angers video game nerd video game? If so when and what platforms is it coming on?

  • The Drop: New Indie Games for 4/7/2015.

  • ShadowStar83x

    Bastion!

  • New games look good, I’m sure I’ll get around to picking most of them up if and when they are on sale or are free in Plus! With that said, can’t wait to see what is on sale this week. Come on Sony, I have more than $100 burning a whole in my wallet. You know you want it. . .

  • why is scholar of the first sin not on the psn store for ps4 yet? it comes out on tuesday….

  • cleversignin

    @ Ryan:
    perhaps blocking accounts that are obvious alts would be nice. acct created less than six months ago? acct has zero trophies? that there is an alt account. no posting allowed. you can ban all you want you at least need to make the trolls work a little… at least make people be trophy level 2 to show they own a PS system.

    just a suggestion. I think we are all tired of people asking about spyro, demanding sales on suckodan and generally being idiots…. I am actually pretty close recommending you get rid of comments on here altogether since most are of no interest or use.
