    Wow mighty No.9 is finally coming out! I hope it lives up to fan expectation. If it does, I’ll purchase it when the vita version is released, long live the vita :)

    • Mighty No. 9 for sure! Kinda iffy with Umbrella Corps, prolly wait for reviews.

    • Truebluehero

      It doesn’t say on this page, but the game should be cross-buy, if you have a PS3/4.

    • vanillamoose

      Thanks truebluehero didn’t know it was crossbuy!

    • MakaiOokami

      Yeah they definitely said it’s cross-buy. Which to be honest is only fair since people dished out money for this game 3 years ago, XD so they really shouldn’t be double charging us when ever is reasonable, and PS4/Vita is close enough to be reasonably not doublecharged. At that point you just throw in the PS3 so that people don’t feel cheated when they go up a platform. People getting it on 3DS and Wii U?

      Well… can’t baby people. Bad decisions are bad decisions. :D

    • Extrem3xCarn4ge

      VIVA LA VITA!!!!

    • dkarlowicz10

      Mighty No.9 is taking a beating from the critics and review wise. This could be the lowest scored game of the year (so far).

    • ChiliBomber

      Viva la Vita!!!

    • Truebluehero

      Viva la Vita! I’ll certainly be playing MN9 on it when it’s ready. ;)

  • Now that E3 is over things return to normal. I’m interested in Deadlight Director’s Cut and Assemblance this week. I’ll wait to see what reviews say about Mighty No. 9.

  • DarkSeraphim666

    Isn’t Indigo Prophecy supposed to come to PS4 this week?

  • PuppetShoJustice

    Hopefully Mighty No 9 won’t be a trainwreck. Please, please, please be good.

    Any word on a release date for the PS4 version of Neverwinter, by chance?

  • TheHerbinator75

    Hard to believe that Mighty No. 9 is finally coming out. I hope it lives up to the long standing hype and expectations.

    • MakaiOokami

      I would tell you… but I decided not to try the PC demo, because I wanted to experience the full game, and not get a partial taste of non complete code, be underwhelmed and then not really get around to playing the full version.

      So soon we’ll find out if I threw away my $20 years ago. XD

  • Mighty No. 9
    PS4, PS3 — Digital (PS4 Version at Retail)

    Huh?My brain just isn’t registering this english. Sounds like the PS4 version is only available at retail which I know isn’t the case lol.

    Vita versions?

    • Only the PS4 version is getting a retail release. The PS3 version comes out this week digitally. Developer said they are still working on the Vita version so who knows when that will be.

    • Jisatsu_Kiddo

      it is as it says the ps4 will have a disc copy at an actual retail store as well.

  • Anyone know how Draw 2 is supposed to work on PS4? Does your phone/mobile device connect to the PS4 (like through the PS4 app?) or something?

    • Cliff_Hanger

      Jackbox have been making games like this for a couple of years. You make sure the phones/tablets are on the same Wi-Fi as the PS4, and you start the game on Playstation. It gives you a code and a web address; you go to the address, punch in the code, and you get buttons and prompts on your phone screen to interact with the PS4 games. It works pretty well, though you need to make sure your phone screen has at least a 3-5 minute timer before turn-off for some games or you’ll get hosed on timed stuff.

    • Your phone/tablet doesn’t actually have to be on the same wi-fi. Some of my friends and I play Jackbox games over Twitch, and we’re not even in the same city, let alone on the same wi-fi.

    • princemalcolm

      When you play any of the games for the jackbox party pack or Draw 2 you log on to the jackbox.tv website on your phone or tablet and then your enter the room code the game gives you on your ps4 to the jackbox.tv site. Thats how it works.

  • AizawaYuuichi

    Hm, doesn’t look like there’s anything for me this week.
    But I’m getting Star Ocean next week, so that’s okay.

  • YorlecmNwahs

    Does anyone remember Mega Man? Some of you younger people might not have played the games that came out in the 80s, but Mighty No. 9 reminds me of Mega Man. The art style and some of the characters in the image look like obvious copyright infringements.

    • there’s a reason for the similarities.
      Mighty No. 9 very closely resembles the early Mega Man series in both gameplay and character design, which lead producer Keiji Inafune worked on, and is considered its spiritual successor.

    • MakaiOokami

      Far out. Feels like you’ve been living under a rock… man…

    • I’m not entirely sure if you have been following this game at all but, might no 9 was created by the same person who is responsible for the early Mega man games.

    • not that making a similar style game as someone else is “copyright infringement” anyway. almost every game we all play now takes its mechanics from older games.

    • princemalcolm

      Same creator, same concept, different company.

  • Welcome back Ryan! & happy first Father’s Day to ya!

  • I will finally get Mighty No. 9 and I super excited about Umbrella Corps.

    • xxdmcgee2288xx

      amen to that, brother. can’t wait to play umbrella corps tonight at midnight.

  • Scaramanga1983

    Shame that Dead Light isn’t on Vita as well.

  • Surprised Pac-Man 256 isn’t getting a Vita port, a mobile game moving to a handheld seem like a natural thing to do.

  • Any chance that KoF XIV will pre-orderable on PSN this week?

  • markymark255

    I think Grand Kingdom is also coming to the US store on the 21?

  • Glad to have you back, Ryan! And congrats again on your fatherhood on this Father’s Day :-)

    Now that Mighty No. 9 is finally coming out it will be interesting to see what people actually think of it given all the discussion

  • Blackjohnjohnny

    So no Grand Kingdom on the ps4 or vita this week?

  • VinsanityV21

    I’m out for awhile. I picked up a LOAD of titles recently; just bought Guilty Gear Revelator and paid off King of Fighters XIV at Gamestop yesterday, and picked up Doom. Target had it for $40 on Mon; same day as Bethesda’s press conference. I have NO IDEA why, but I snapped it up! Maybe it was on purpose; like, “get in on it now, we’re celebrating the good sales, and want more people to have the game and get excited for future DLC”, I dunno. But it was $40 and I couldn’t pass it up! Also picked up Bloodborne finally ‘cuz it was $15 at Best Buy, and I also have backlog to get through (I think I’m close to finishing up Digimon Cyber Sleuth). My PS4 is doing GREAT right now, but I have NO MONEY atm, I probably shouldn’t even check The Drop until August at this point :P

  • Pacman 256 should be on Vita. BTW Happy Father’s day Ryan!!

  • Panzer-Strike

    Where is Grand Kingdom for PS4 and Vita? I can’t even find a pre-order for the Vita on PSN but PS4 is there. Is there anyone here who can confirm officially they’ll be there digitally on Tuesday?

    • AizawaYuuichi

      As far as I can remember, there have NEVER been pre-orders for Vita games available on PSN. You just buy it when it comes out. And if there are any pre-order bonuses at retail, they sometimes include them with PSN purchase for the first week or two, but that’s it.

    • AizawaYuuichi Tearaway had a pre-order if I remember correctly & you got bonus items.

      Only drawback is the normal Tearaway does not show as purchased so if you want to re-downloaded you have to find it in the messy download list.

    • The 28th. I don’t know where the misinformation about the 21st started. You can look at any retailer and see the 28th.

    • AizawaYuuichi

      @ TimMalouff: According to this post, it’s just as I said. There were no pre-orders, but you got the extras if you purchased the digital game at launch. The Vita store never has, and 100% never will at this point, support pre-order functionality.

    • Panzer-Strike

      The retailers physical release date was the 21st but that got pushed back due to packing errors. The digital shouldn’t of changed.

    • From http://www.nisamerica.com:
      “North American Release Date Change
      We are very sorry to announce that the physical edition release date for Grand Kingdom has been delayed in North America. This announcement does not affect digital preorders. Below shows the updated North American release schedule for Grand Kingdom:

      Grand Kingdom (Standard, Limited & Grand Editions) – June 28th

      Grand Kingdom (Digital) – June 21st (unchanged)”

    • Lash_Whipwreck

      digital is still coming out of the 21 but physical copys got pushed to the 28 becuase of packaging error. also when you look up grand kingdom on the vita all the comes up if the demo for it.

  • dkarlowicz10

    Pacman 256 should be on Vita. If a phone can handle it, Vita should as well.

  • TrueAssassin86x

    And nothing but crap this week oh well guess its back to the old backlog. I guess the summer rush of good games are over.

  • Really disappointed that Electronic Super Joy isnt coming to Vita. Platformers almost always make so much more sense a handheld. That game is super fun too.

  • Da_Dog_Killa

    Summer sale this week pls

  • YorlecmNwahs

    Wow! I just looked up the price for Mighty No. 9. $34.99 at EB Games. Why are we being charged so much for a Super Nintendo style 2-D sidescroller. The most I would pay is $9.99.

  • CalistoBlade

    The digital version of Grand Kingdom is out this week as well. Have it pre-ordered and the current time left ends midnight Tuesday.

  • StevenWinnipeg

    can buy stuff on the new sale on tuesday for it to work to 100 or does it need to be before tuesday not sure if i want mortal kombat and assassin creed unity for the other 50 i need to spend

  • Someone really needs to do a better jon on these posts. You missed a pre order title dropping this week.

    GRAND KINGDOM DROPS ON TUESDAY ITS DOWNLOADING NOW AS MY PRE ORDER.

    • Ryan Clements

      I added Grand Kingdom, thank you for the LOUD comment. :-D

  • IXxHIJACKERxXI

    [[[Friday 13th game]]] yesssssssssss :) it was a long time coming the 80’s is back.

  • HallowedArrow

    How in the world does the author of this article forget GRAND KINGDOM!? Comes out on 21st, i have it preordered! Possibly the best game coming out this week, and they forget it! Smh man, smh.

    • That’s because only the limited edition of Grand Kingdom for PS4 comes out on tuesday. For anyone getting it digitally, for Vita or even have the not collectors edition on PS4 have to wait until the 28th.

    • Actually, the limited edition of Grand Kingdom for the PS4 comes out on the 28th, along with all other physical copies (standard and grand editions). Digital copies of the game will be released on schedule (June 21st).

      “North American Release Date Change
      We are very sorry to announce that the physical edition release date for Grand Kingdom has been delayed in North America. This announcement does not affect digital preorders. Below shows the updated North American release schedule for Grand Kingdom:

      Grand Kingdom (Standard, Limited & Grand Editions) – June 28th

      This is straight from http://www.nisamerica.com.

    • Ryan Clements

      Thanks for the comment! I added Grand Kingdom in there, appreciate your patience!

  • Is it bad that the only game I’m remotely enthused for is Professional Farmer?

  • xxdmcgee2288xx

    Kind of surprised at the lack of hype behind Umbrella Corps. However, I guess this is a good thing, considering it may leave some disappointed. Personally, I pre-ordered and already downloaded the deluxe edition. I can’t wait until midnight. About 12 hours left now, and I will be sinking my teeth into this title. I just hope there’s a day one patch or that they hurry up and patch any multiplayer issues if there are any problems with anything during tonight’s launch.

    • Umbrella Corps got hate as soon as it was announced. It is the series issue problem. People rarely want you to ever travel outside your realm unless it is a RPG. That and a lot of the Resident Evil fans hated Opperation Raccoon City which in my opinion was not all that bad. Umbrella Corps is also being done by Capcom themselves unlike Operation Raccoon City.

      I have high hopes because it looks like they took the team behind Lost Planet and told them to make an online team based shooter based on the Resident Evil universe. It might actually be best that it does have kind of niche audience. The ones who really enjoy it will likey stick around longer.

  • Why does this blog require a flic.kr account to see images from this link? That site requires a hackable unsecure yahoo account. Tired of getting my yahoo account hacked so I am not able to see those pictures. Pretty lame that they just don’t put them on this blog.

    • Yeah I dunno what’s the deal with the Blog…sometimes you can check the pics fine but sometimes it won’t allow you asking for Yahoo account which is nonsense.

  • Wow Mighty is being released,they sure took their time but I’m glad to see its already out will buy it for sure.

    And damn Umbrella Corps looks like dog crap.Perfect fit for a Plus free game though.

  • PurdueStephen

    Sheesh, is it too much to ask to have each game clickable to the PS store instead of the image? Would it be so much trouble to list the games linked to the store at the beginning or end. There is no reason anyone should have to rummage around that poorly designed storefront to find these. Do they want to sell games or not?

    Just silly

  • Does anybody know when the US will be able to download or preorder The Technomancer digitally?

  • ‘Cry like an anime-fan on prom night’
    We’ll see if Mighty No. 9 didn’t lose all of it’s fanbase and potential sales with that one.

    • That was not actually the fault of the Mighty No. 9 Team. The Publisher gets to choose Marketing and in this case that would be Deep Silver. Keiji should not have decided to team up with them in the first place, but at that time Deep Silver was likey to give a little extra to anyone to get the rights to Publish a game as they had no team to actually work on Dead Island 2 and Dead Island is really there only big success story.

  • TehFineztJokerX

    Nothing for me unfortunately, I was going to get Mighty No. 9 but after all the criticism, it didn’t live up to it’s expectations which left me disappointed and less interested in it.

  • princemalcolm

    Hey Ryan. Any Sega news on a Guardian Heroes or Streets of Rage Remaster?

  • How about some info on Tomb Raider – when is it coming? ;-)

  • Umbrella Corps – uugh, it’s coming out already? That Unity Engine really shows better with other games.

  • Where is Umbrella Corps.. Can’t find it on the PSN store. Was it pulled?

    • Nejithegreat

      I hear a lot of people saying that there was an error with the download so assuming that is true they may have pulled it until it be fixed but it should not mess up your pre-order if you pre-ordered it off the PlayStation Network store.

  • Nejithegreat

    @Ryan Clements
    Any news for the price of God Eater resurrection that comes out for the PS4 and PS Vita next week? I hear that the prices for the PS4 version is different from the price of the PS Vita version.

  • lucazzzzzzz_z

    How come I couldnt buy Grand Kingdom in PSN….
    I have been waiting for so long and the pre-order/ buy button was just gone….
    What’s wrong with that

  • waiting on dat Minecraft Update

  • Where are all the ps2 classics? You guys have over 80 listed on the ps3 what is the hold up transfering those to ps4, and why is it that we have to rebuy them, its the same game just running on a different emulator?

  • Waiting for the game to update。

  • What about Kick off Revival? it comes out on the 24th of June in Europe, any idea when the game will be released in North America.

  • I’d rather have Azure Striker Gunvolt and Mega Man Legacy Collection on Vita. Why do we get the worst thing?
