The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 4/11/2017

Every eye in the universe is watching you. Better give them a good show. The omnidirectional shooter StarBlood Arena launches April 11 on PS VR.

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

Prepare for the next generation of competitive multiplayer. In StarBlood Arena, players pilot one of nine distinct ships (with equally distinct pilots) and fight for glory and credits in underground arenas throughout the galaxy. Evade and attack in any direction, and unlock ship and weapon modifications to refine your combat style. Can you survive the most dangerous show in the universe?

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

    Raptureassassin, no, hell hasn’t frozen over.
    Your use of the word “usely” signifies that your grammar has frozen over.

Even after buying Stardew Valley 4 times already, I’m going to pick up the physical CE just to keep supporting Concerned Ape. This game is just so freaking good.

    Haha. I read an email last night that my retail copy shipped as well. Totally forgot because I have digital copies on three systems myself. Love it! :)

Zamphere said:

No mention of Skyforge? I thought it came out on the 11th as well.

    TheHerbinator75 said:

    April 7th, 2:39 pm

    Wasn’t that one coming out on the 18th?

    Trendy_Kid said:

    April 7th, 2:42 pm

    It does, I guess maybe it’s either delayed or just an open beta.

TheHerbinator75 said:

April 7th, 2:38 pm

Cosmic Star Heroine looks like a cool throwback to 16 bit era RPG’s.

Trendy_Kid said:

April 7th, 2:41 pm

Crawl looks so amazing. It has an incredible steam rating too!!

DeadPool315 said:

April 7th, 2:58 pm

One would think that the current week’s crap sales would indicate a flash sale or big releases next week. Apparently , one would be wrong

    xKanye-Eastx said:

    April 7th, 3:48 pm

    Flash Sales occur on the second to last weekend of the month.

And still another week without ape escape 3

paulogy said:

April 7th, 3:06 pm

Wow, quite a variety coming this Tuesday! I’ve had Crawl and CSH on my radar for quite some time. I’ll be spending most of my time this weekend playing Drawn to Death – really enjoying how that turned out :-D

Xiaolinstyle said:

April 7th, 3:31 pm

Why is “The Drop” still the worst list of new releases? No price, no link, and one single piece of art work. Pointless waste of our time and yours. Do something useful.

    tobi_tenma said:

    April 7th, 5:51 pm

    I agree, this is the post they should of gotten rid of. The Tuesday update was way more useful. Fire whoever does this and rehire the update guy/gal

    Tatanka2007 said:

    April 7th, 7:35 pm

    I agree with Xiaoinstyle (I like that user id!) and tobi_tenma. It’s useful criticism to keep saying what many have said already. Bring back the sale lists. It was convenient. Heck, Xbox does it officially not once but twice, through their blog, majornelson, and the main site. Here on the PS blog the Store Update was an equally convenient list to rummage through. It was ESPECIALLY CONVENIENT for those of us who support Sony by owning PS4s, PS3s, and PSTV/Vita. It was great to be able to look in one place for sale titles for all four devices! Maybe if you own just one device, you might be like, what’s the big deal–just sign in. Of course for them it’s easier. Equally, on the web store page, the presentation isn’t as convenient as the one big list that the Store Update had.

    Again, I find people who are bringing this up to be way more on point than someone who just complains about people wanting to help improve the blog.

    On Tuesday when the games go live in the store The Drop gets updated with links and prices. Just check out last week’s

In for Cosmic Star Heroine. Will have to find time for it in between Persona 5 marathons.

Rapturesassassin said:

April 7th, 5:02 pm

And nothing for me this week. Oh well i got enough in the old backlog to keep me busy till May when Prey comes out. Not included in that backlog Mass Effect Andromeda and Persona 5. Oh and 16 comments in without someone mentioning the update blog. I guess the trolls got bored of that.

Cosmic Star Heroine and Yooka-Laylee in the same week? WOOOOOOOOOO

AshlarYul said:

April 7th, 5:12 pm

Starblood Arena!!! Finally a new PSVR game that might be worth its price! Hoping it will be as good as RIGS.

DeathGazer said:

April 7th, 6:18 pm

Another nice week. Cosmic Star Heroine looks awesome, glad I pre-ordered.

Guyper said:

Does anyone using Chrome get any error loading when they go to the playstation store site right now?

Yooka Laylee is the only game that matters to me this coming week. been really hype for this game ever since I saw it on kickstarter 2 or 3 ago. So excited to finally get to play the soul successor to the game that I really enjoyed as a child.

Id rather they released Cave Story on PS4 rather than Kero Blaster. Cave Story hasnt been released on any Sony Platform not even the PS Vita. Its such an awesome game

AnthonM2X said:

Hi Ryan, I hope you’re fine and doing very well, please there isn’t one high budget Japanese first party game from Sony, I like and buy all the first party western games from Sony but variety is good, if not possible then 3 or 4 medium budget Japanese games, action/adventure, RPG, or psychological horror.

Maybe Sony can fund the canceled Suda 51 game Kurayami:

Thank you so much for your efforts and for the great console.

Preordered Cosmic Star Heroine. Can’t wait for it to come out on Vita; it looks like it will be a perfect fit for the console!

StevenWinnipeg said:

April 11th, 2:47 am

YorlecmNwahs said:

Might check out the Euro Fishing and Snow Moto Racing game. I’ll leave the commodor 64 and PS1 games to those who love that sort of thing.

2 weeks in a row with **** for sales in US. Meanwhile, Europe gets 2 weeks of big spring/easter sales. Great job SCEA. Biggest sale we got last week was gta5, this week is Elder Scrolls stuff, you know, 5-6yr old content. Yay. Thanks sooo much.
