PSNStores Weekly Roundup: September 24th – September 30th 2012

Posted by on September 30th, 2012 | 0 Comments | Tags:

Some PSN fans (including myself) were disappointed when the sequel to racing-platformer Joe Danger looked like it wouldn’t be coming to PlayStation. But thankfully Hello Games announced this week that Joe Danger 2 – The Movie would not only be making its way over to PSN but will also include a whopping 10 hours of extra content. You can (hopefully) look forward to the game to be in your hands in as little as a couple of weeks. With PlayStation Mobile only a couple of days away more and more games are getting announced for the platform, including the viking themed match game Loot the Land. While no date has been announced yet you can check out the trailer to see some gameplay.

Sony announced a new push for digital titles on the PlayStation store with Day 1 Digital bringing eight retail PS3 games to the PSN in the month of October. You will be able to pick up digital versions of big releases like Resident Evil 6, Assassins Creed III, and Need For Speed: Most Wanted on the same date as their physical release, with some even sporting a 10% discount for PS+. Speaking of digital content but of a different kind, the Neon Ally app will be coming to PSN this Tuesday. Initially announced back in July Neon ally operates more like a traditional TV station with set times for shows and will allow you to watch exclusive English dubbed premiers of your favorites, like NARUTO Shippuden and Inuyasha – The Final Act, for $6.99 a month.

If you have been keeping your eyes peeled for great looking Vita games you might have come across the free-to-play social action-RPG Picotto Knights which released in Japan this month, and if you are like me you were probably wondering if it would be making its way to NA. Well with the formation of GungHo Online Entertainment America this week, you will no longer have to wonder.  Along with the already announced Dokuro coming in October they will be bringing Picotto Knights to NA in early 2013 and also handling the Europe launch of Ragnarok Odyssey. This is one company that Vita fans should keep their eyes on.

In reveiews this week we have the snow themed runner Feisty Feet, the underwhelming action-adventure game Way of the Samurai 4, and the HD port of Dreamcast favorite Jet Set Radio.

Derrik The Deathfin, the underwater papercraft styled action game, is launching on PSN on October 9th for $7.99/€6.99 and to whet your appetite we have a interview with one of the developers. Read on to learn about the inspiration for how the game looks, the collaborative development process, and why the game might remind you of a certain SEGA/Megadrive favorite. We end off with this past weeks Global Store Update and a Sneak Peek at the October 2nd NA update. All of this and more in this edition of the PSNStores Weekly Roundup:
