Sony released an official trailer for the game which was released last night (shouldn’t they do it before release?). Early reports are that it’s a good game, but somewhat short, only a little more than an hour. So perhaps not a great bang for the buck, as it’s rather high priced.
Eight new PlayStation Mobile games in the world this week.
Apocalypse Defense is a defense game.
Fragment’s Note and Monster-kun Coin Kingdom are both Japan-only titles. The former is a visual novel, while the latter is a coin pusher game.
iFishing Saltwater is the saltwater version of iFishing.
Nunnageddon is an arcade shooter.
rymdkapsel is a strategy game.
Sola Radio is an app, a music app.
VitaBounce! is some obscure game.
- Apocalypse Defense ($3.79, £2.99)
- Fragment’s Note (¥350 – Japan only)
- iFishing Saltwater ($3.79, £2.99)
- Monster-kun Coin Kingdom (Kaibutsu-kun Coin Oukoku) (FREE – Japan only)
- Nunnageddon ($1.49, £1.19)
- rymdkapsel ($4.99, £3.99, ¥500)
- Sola Radio ($0.99, £0.79, ¥100)
- VitaBounce! ($0.99, £0.79)
(per commenter AxelMill98, the only game listed above that is available in Italy is rymdkapsel)
The PS Mobile program has gotten off to a somewhat rocky start, with low sales, poor visibility, and a general lack of quality titles (with a few notable exceptions).
In all honesty, this is probably going to result in a lot of bad games, but hopefully we will see a few gems.
(thanks to onmode-ky for spotting this)
This is a little outside the scope of this site’s coverage, since we generally restrict ourselves to Minis, PlayStation Mobile titles, and ports of them to the Vita as full-fledged titles, not other platforms. But our longtime friends at Super Icon have launched a Kickstarter to port their PS Mobile game Life of Pixel to other platforms, including possibly the PS3, and who knows, maybe even the Vita if it goes really well. They don’t say it, but they do have the devkits, so….
At any rate, best of luck to them!
SAKURA is an upcoming PlayStation Mobile game (”dice puzzle classic,” according to onmode-ky) from Japanese developers Emily & Charlotte Lounge. While I still don’t know if those are people or a company, apparently the Lounge stands for lounge music, as you can hear in this trailer. Sounds good, though.
