Witness the story of the Yellow Turban Rebellion and command legendary heroes once more.

secret of mana isn’t releasing the vita version? That’s BS if that’s the care because I bought the other 1 on vita and rather keep em together

    Ron7_So said:

    February 10th, 4:15 am

    cross buy

    Elk_mistral said:

    February 10th, 4:28 pm

    secret of mana is not cross buy

    Elite-Rico said:

    February 10th, 7:34 pm

    lame no games supporting crossbuy any more

    Slikk said:

    February 11th, 12:01 pm

    I hope it was just a typo or something. Everything that previously mentioned Vita did say 2/15.

    zepified said:

    February 12th, 12:17 am

    There have been plenty of recent Vita games that support cross-buy… Iconoclasts, Mercenary Kings and One More Dungeon being 3 of them that I can come up with off of the top of my head.

    As for the Vita version of Secret of Mana… I’m hoping we get some news on that either way. The worst is when we Vita fans get our hopes up only to then find out at the last moment that the Vita version of “X” game is now canceled and or is indefinitely delayed for the time being. That is the absolute worst.

    Here’s hoping (I know I shouldn’t) the above scenario doesn’t happen this time??? Once again, any news about the Vita version is welcome.

    Slikk said:

    February 13th, 12:52 pm

    Mercenary Kings is Cross Buy? I had to buy it again on Vita last week… I wondered why the PS4 version got an update.

February 9th, 2:21 pm

Not to complain but videos showcasing gameplay would go a long way on these types of pages. In many cases we get a simple very vague description of a title. Secret of Mana is a classic and look at how it is presented. Someone who never payed the game would have no idea about its greatness.

In short we need a redesign of this page.

    JamonSerranoSky said:

    February 9th, 3:04 pm

    Gaming Dog on YouTube has videos showing gameplay of all the games coming out every week on PlayStation.

    kungfuian said:

    February 9th, 9:56 pm

    I 100% agree! Some YouTube or game page links would be great. So annoying having to go look them up each week.

    TJ_Solo said:

    February 11th, 6:24 pm

    We aren’t designing or redesigning anything here. Doing so would make the page perform worse, reliant on a dozen or more external links, and defeat the purpose of this article attempting to get you to check out the PS Store.

    God-Of-Lyf said:

    February 11th, 10:58 pm

    Never going to happen. We are lucky we get a brief description and picture. I don’t buy games I’ve never heard of, and have never nor will NEVER seek out unknown games to spend money on. That’s not how it works. You want me to buy your game? Come to me and try to sell to me. Until then, it’s money lost…!

Motherboop said:

February 9th, 2:23 pm

Waaaaait a minute, where’s Secret of Mana Vita?

fecks said:

Kingdom Come for me!

    cusman said:

    February 9th, 4:42 pm

    I was Kickstarter backer for that at Baron Pledge level. I have no idea if / when I will be receiving the game everyone else who got interested later might get to play on Feb 13th.

    MidnightDragonDX said:

    February 12th, 10:17 am

    Backed it on Kickstarter. Waiting for my package.

jpf75 said:

February 9th, 2:29 pm

Yeah, a brief gameplay or trailer video for each new release would be helpful. Thanks

    JamonSerranoSky said:

    February 9th, 3:03 pm

    Check out the channel Gaming Dog on YouTube, weekly videos of gameplay of all the games coming out every week.

Crossing Souls is the one for me. I also plan to try out Kingdom Come Deliverance at some point, too. But I have been waiting patiently for Crossing Souls for a long time.

steeler192 said:

February 9th, 4:44 pm

I’ve been waiting for Crossing Souls since it was featured in the blog, and now I’ll finally be able to play it.

    mschulze0 said:

    February 9th, 5:20 pm

    or you could play the demo right now!

    steeler192 said:

    February 10th, 12:51 pm

    Thanks, mschulze0! I tried it this morning and it as great as I thought it would be. Also, congrats are in order to Devolver and Juan Diego for producing the demo ahead of launch. It’s something that’s seldom seen and very much appreciated.

    MidnightDragonDX said:

    February 12th, 10:20 am

    Thanks for mentioning there’s a demo. Downloading it right now.

No secret of Mana on Vita? I don’t care if you don’t launch games for vita, but please don’t communicate its coming and then do nothing

February 9th, 4:55 pm

Dynasty Warriors 9 damn why does it have to come out when the money is already going toward something else

    MidnightDragonDX said:

    February 9th, 9:16 pm

    It said digital and retail, so yes.

MidnightDragonDX said:

February 9th, 9:15 pm

Kingdom Come Deliverance and Secret of Mana here. :)

    cusman said:

    February 11th, 7:08 am

    My Kickstarter backer reward copy of Kingdom Come Deliverance expected to arrive on 12th (Monday). Aside that, I am interested in The Fall – Part 2 and the PSVR Knockout League game.

Is Owlboy not releasing this week?

    Psydswipe said:

    February 13th, 4:07 am

    Not sure about the digital version but the retail release isn’t until May 29th.

Welmosca said:

Slice,Dice e Rice looks interesting.

Section8Frank said:

February 11th, 12:35 pm

Why can’t they just make a real vr boxing game with no garbage? A real boxing game is what would make me buy VR.

Sammyv17 said:

February 11th, 6:57 pm

So what happened to the Secret of Mana Vita version releasing the same day as the ps4 version as announced here: ?

AnthonM22 said:

February 12th, 1:08 am

Hi, please I hope there’s going to be a sale on Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, thank you so much

tusunami said:

February 12th, 7:02 am

AnthonM22 everybody’s gone to rapture has been free for PS Plus members but you don’t have the service. And if I’m correct there was a sale on the game awhile back. You have to make sure you check the PS Blog and the store constantly if you don’t do that you are going to miss out every time.

D_Arkss said:

February 12th, 10:01 am

As many have mention, not only Secret of Mana but also Crossing Souls were announced to have Vita releases. It is disapointing not see them listed in here as they should.

Figboy said:

February 12th, 10:01 am

First time hearing about Crossing Souls. I think I’ll add that one to the list.

I can’t do Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The game was made by an avid alt-righter and gamer gater. There are plenty of other cool RPGs to play and spend my money supporting.

I also wish The Drop would provide youtube video links to the games. It’s kind of annoying to have to constantly switch between google searches and The Drop page when browsing on the phone.

    MidnightDragonDX said:

    February 12th, 12:00 pm

    I backed it on Kickstarter, so not like I have a choice. That being said, they sent me the PC version instead of PS4 like I requested.

    Tommygunnz98 said:

    February 12th, 6:12 pm

    Dude keep your social justice warrior trash out of our video games. The industry has been amazing the last 35+ years and now people like you that get offended by everything are trying to ruin it. Go lift some weights or something and stop being such a disappointment to your father who probably tried to raise you like a man and ended up with a snowflake.

    RoughPutter said:

    February 13th, 6:09 am

    @Tommygunnz98 No, the industry has not been “amazing” the last 35+ years. Not sure where you’re getting your facts from. And it isn’t a good idea to call him a “snowflake” considering how butthurt you just got over his comment. Calm it down.

It would be nice if links to the PS store for the games were added so we cna check out gameplay trailers or put them on our wishlist.
