11/28/2014 - Jetpack Joyride Deluxe Coming to PS Vita and PS3

Jetpack Joyride Deluxe coming in hot on PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3

AUSTRALIA, Brisbane – November 28th – Fans of the critically acclaimed PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 title Jetpack Joyride can now enjoy some holiday cheer with the latest instalment, Jetpack Joyride Deluxe, hitting PlayStation Store from November 26th.

Jetpack Joyride Deluxe includes S.A.M. the Strong Arm Machine, a massive robot suit that blocks oncoming rockets, along with a host of exciting new content for high-flyers around the globe.

Players can activate S.A.M. once a day by collecting three flying tokens. Every day the player returns to activate S.A.M. they will receive a new in-game reward, and on the fifth day they are gifted one of 32 brand new costume pieces to style Barry with more bling!

Of course it wouldn’t be the holidays without rocket-powered robotic reindeer! Adrenaline junkies can now take to the skies in the Sleigh of Awesome, another new vehicle created by the young, supple scientists at Legitimate Research. This is a seasonal item only, and players must unlock it exclusively during the holiday period. After that, it’s gone!

S.A.M. and the Sleigh of Awesome emphasise everything that kicks ass about Jetpack Joyride – explosions, sweet new gadgets, new styles for Barry and cool stuff to unlock in The Stash.

The deluxe edition also includes the Wave Rider, a high-octane jet ski, as well as a selection of new vehicle skins and outfits designed to give players an unprecedented amount of customisation.

Jetpack Joyride Deluxe is available to download in the U.S. and Canada on November 26th and will be available in Europe and Australasia from December 3rd.

11/25/2014 - Geometry Wars 3 Now Available
GEOMETRY WARS 3: DIMENSIONS AVAILABLE NOW


Next Chapter in the Award-Winning Geometry WarsTM Franchise is Newest Title Released under the SierraTM Label

London, UK – 25th November, 2014 – Today marks the newest addition to the Sierra™ library of games with the release of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions. This frenetic arcade shooter from developer Lucid Games is the latest instalment in the Geometry Wars franchise.  The new game advances the series to unexplored frontiers, bringing its retro-inspired action and energy to more platforms than ever before with an added twist to its classic gameplay – 3D grids!

“Geometry Wars is a part of our DNA,” said Craig Howard, Co-founder of Lucid Games. “Several of us here worked on prior games in the series and we’ve had ideas kicking around in our heads for where it could go next. Partnering with Sierra to bring those visions to life has been an amazing experience.”

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is an exciting evolution of the fast-paced twin-stick shooter gameplay the Geometry Wars franchise helped define nearly a decade ago. While the game’s look should be immediately familiar to hardcore fans, it features new 3D action and gameplay modes, a dedicated single-player campaign with 50 levels and revamped online cooperative and competitive multiplayer. It also adds five unique companion drones, new power-ups, electrifying boss battles and community leaderboards. There are also Classic Arcade modes available for those still hungry for the original Geometry Wars experience.

Lucid Games’ partnership with the Sierra label has given the developer an opportunity to remain independent, but still be able to create the game they dreamed about. As part of Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:
ATVI), Sierra’s focus is on working with indie studios to bring both classic and original high quality new games to market.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions  is a digital-only title available today in the UK for PC via Steam. It arrives tomorrow for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems through the PlayStation®Network, as well as for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft on the Xbox Games Store. The game is rated PEGI 3+. For more information, visit the
official website, like the game on Facebook and follow it on Twitter.

11/24/2015 - Hatoful Boyfriend Pigeon Dating Simulator Coming to PS4 and Vita
Hatoful Boyfriend – The Greatest Pigeon Dating Simulator Ever Made – Coming to PlayStation4 and PlayStation Vita Early 2015

Austin, Texas – November 24, 2014 

Avian-friendly 
Devolver Digital and  Mediatonic announced today that Hato Moa’s Hatoful Boyfriend, the world’s greatest pigeon dating story ever told, will arrive on the  PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation Vita™ in early 2015 for €7,99 ($9.99), and will be localized in French and German as well as English. A launch party is currently being planned in front of a bench in Central Park with a bar serving a range of high-end breadcrumbs. 

Trailer: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMr06VmdruY

Mediatonic’s interactive adaptation of the Pigeon Fancying classic is based on Hato Moa‘s seminal visual novel, exploring the struggles and insecurities of the only human student’s search for love at a prestigious school for birds. Romantics will encounter a feathered cast of characters and try to coo a suitable love interest. Those with darker tastes might discover something altogether more sinister. Follow your heart as you choose your path and go on starry-eyed dates, but be wary of fowl twists and turns along the way that could turn your love life upside down.

Hato Moa, creator of Hatoful Boyfriend and pigeon romance visionary commented, “I never dreamt when I first made Hatoful Boyfriend I’d see it on PlayStation. Thanks to the amazing fans and Mediatonic, I hope now even more people will discover pigeon love… All you need is dove.

Adapted from graphic novel form,  the PC version of Hatoful Boyfriend was released into the wild earlier this year to astonishing critical acclaim. 

As a direct result of the overwhelming avian love from fans in France and Germany, and their desire to be able to date pigeons in their own native tongues, Hatoful Boyfriend for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita will be fully localized in French and German on release. Once the gargantuan task has been completed by the ranks of confused translators currently poring over every strange nuance of human-bird relations, the localizations will also be heading to PC as a free update.

Fork Parker, Devolver CFO, CEO, OOH, offered “All y’all PlayStation nerds need to stop waiting for The Last Guardian to magically appear and buy my pigeon dating simulator. It’s the only sensible thing to do. ”

For more information about the leading romantic bird simulator Hatoful Boyfriend, Mediatonic or malevolent publisher Devolver Digital, please visit  www.devolverdigital.com or start chatting up some local birds just to see what’s up.
