PlayStation Store update: Rayman Legends, Spelunky, Final Fantasy XIV, more

If you’re like me, you’ll be drowning in games to play over the next few months. This week begins that busy period with a number of big titles due for release, starting with the grand scale MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Band together with your friends and explore a brand new world, take on grand quests or run around on Chocobos all day. Eorzea awaits you.

Rayman Legends is out this week, too. The Glade of Dreams is in trouble once again! During a 100-year nap, the nightmares multiplied and spread, creating new monsters even more terrifying than before! With the help of Murfy, Rayman and Globox awake and must now help fight these nightmares and save the Teensies!

We’ve also got acclaimed platformer Spelunky, Suda 51’s fresh looking Killer is Dead, visual novel Sweet Fuse: At Your Side for PSP, Capcom’s Lost Planet 3, demos for Puppeteer and Killzone: Mercenary and so much more, so scroll on down and see what tickles your taste buds.

Don’t forget you can also pre-order the beautiful looking rain from PS Store, and doing so nets you bonus avatars, themes and mini soundtrack in addition to the game.

I just wanted thank you guys over bringing AC3 and Stealth to PS plus . that’s just amazing . Stealth has been released in less than a month and it just became free for members , impressive work . thank you guys!

Hi Jawad,

Could you give an update on the Walking Dead coming to Vita please?


Possibly next week :)

Hi Javad, please give us an update on final fantasy 14!

Downloaded the game last night but havent been able to play it at all!


Square Enix are currently experiencing a heavy load on their servers and they’re working hard to allow more players on the servers. Keep an on their twitter or facebook feeds for the latest.

supersmith2500 28 August, 2013 @ 15:05

First off, finally Persona 4 Arena digital release and enjoyed Stealth Inc. and currently downloading Assassin’s Creed III.

I’m still waiting for answers from TellTale regarding Walking Dead for Vita. I have a feeling people will be moaning about it right now.

Btw, any news when Sony is going to release Toro’s Friend Network and Ratchet HD? I’ll leave the Walking Dead question to TellTale and some people on the blog.

Still no The Walking Dead on Vita. Get it together, Telltale. Other than that, good update. Spelunky for me.


any news about Ratchet and clank DeadLocked ?

Ps+ discount for ni no kuni has been removed from psn store(Dutch) please fix the discount so I can buy the game with the correct pricing for ps+ members,thanks in advance!


Sure, will get this sorted out.

Hi Jawad,
Do you know why Rayman Legends for the Vita has been delayed? I was so looking forward to playing it this week >_<

Also, is the Puppeteer demo listed here the same as the one available last week?


I don’t have info on Rayman at the moment.

Yes, this is the demo that PS Plus had last week. Check it out if you haven’t already, it’s pretty good and definitely looks great!

Any news on Walking Dead PS Vita?

What about the pre order for Castle of Illusion? Is that going up today?


We’re currently experiencing issues with setting up new pre-orders so unfortunately this won’t be going up yet. I’m waiting for an update on it.


Will Castle of Illusion be available for preorder today?

Any news on the Euro wide FF XIV Problem? No answers from Sony or Square Enix.

Do not buy if you expect to play today… been waiting over 24 hours to be able to log in.

supersmith2500 28 August, 2013 @ 15:07

Can’t provide any info for Walking Dead on Vita this time. I checked TellTale’s twitter page and still no information about the EU release. I will let you know sooner and keep on checking.


Why is the trophylist for new little king’s story in Japanese?


any chance of getting muramasa rebirth on the store


Yes :)


Well, glad to see the DOA5 avatars on the Store! So I’ll be grabbing those and the Plus freebies :D

But, Jawad, I see no mention of the Castle of Illusion pre-order. Has it been pushed back again? :(

Same as Omegabug2003

Will Castle of Illusion be available for preorder today? AND if so, do we get the pre-order gift too the same as the US?


Please see above. I’m trying to find out about the bonus as well.

Do you know the size of the Killzone Mercenary demo?


No Rayman Legends for Vita? For shame :-(


@11. it’s funny because it’s true LOL

When will you be able to pre order castle of illusion?

@20 Rayman Legends delayed until September


@MR-NONO77 (#7) I think that was just a weekend discount that went active on friday. Too bad you missed it.

Where are the Battle Royale Pre-Order Skins that where going to be available for everybody?

Legend of Dragoon.

Can you provide any clarification as to whether we will be able to pre-load Grand Theft Auto 5 again at some point before release day?

supersonicsjm 28 August, 2013 @ 15:11

Wasn’t Project Diva F supposed to be released on the Store today?


Next week for EU now.

Why is digital so expensive?
I was going to pick up FFXIV in tesco the other day for £25 but thought i’d just grab it digitally since it’s an MMO but your charging an extra £3 for nothing else!
And P4A digitally for £40?! Are your publishers mad?
Please get cracking on digital prices for next gen because this is just stupid now.

Hi Jawad, is trial for Spelunky available also on Vita?


Yep, tis cross-buy :)

XzSlLENTSNIPERzX 28 August, 2013 @ 15:12

Are there any upcoming sales?
Also, since you’re the best, Jawad, could you please look at getting Driver 2 & Leges of Dragoon on the PS Store?
Pretty please? Thankyou.

Whats happened to the Castle of Illusion pre-order? It was supposed to be last week then was told 27th and it’s still not there? :(



What happened to the Sound Shapes sale?

The Walking Dead Europe Release date for PS Vita?


Hi, just got a few questions.
1. How much Ratchet & Clank: Nexus cost and will it get a pre-order?
2. Is the deal where you buy Q-Force and get Gladiator for free still active?
3. Any new information on Ratchet & Clank: Gladiator?
4. Will Lego Batman 2, Far Cry 3 or Crysis 3 be on PS+ anytime soon?

Thanks! :D

Breakquest still doesn’t work for me, Downloaded and updated it 3 or 4 times now. Still shows as having no balls to play the game.

Happy with the PS+ games even if it does mean deleting some games to make space.

I didn’t take a chance that Walking Dead would appear for the vita soon so I have ordered it on import. Expected delivery is monday :-)

Any word on the release of The Walking Dead for the Vita here?

Where is the pre-order for Castle of Illusion?

Everyone who bought the EU FFXIV Digital version yesterday can’t play the game. When are we getting a solution about this or a refund?

Urg, no Walking Dead Vita again…
Hoping its next week…

A_Nonny_Moose 28 August, 2013 @ 15:14

Any release date for TMNT: Out of the Shadows? And possible a PS+ discount?


The Walking Dead?

sharpenedpixel 28 August, 2013 @ 15:15

Hi, what’s happened to Project Diva F? Is there a new release date and what’s the price going to be please? We’re sort of over a barrel as we only get this digitally in Europe. If it’s something stupid like £40-£50 I’m just going to import..

Hi Jawal.
I have a major problem – i earlier bought Spelunky for my vita, and it downloaded fine, but when it installed i got the error code:
C2-12383-7. I then tried to dowload it again but only had the option to buy it again. Then i downloaded the trial (wich worked) but when i tried to download it again, the version in my DL list changed to the trial version. Never got the ps3 version. Its charged on bank account, and i have the receipt.
Please help


Have you tried the PS3 version as well? Please contact customer services who will be able to help you further.


Statement from Square Enix:-

A statement from the company reads:

“Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play. As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN’s digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play. We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days.”

So the chances are today’s version won’t be available on the store anyway and for anyone experiencing difficulties, you need to go to the SQ forums or just stay locked to for more info. That’s a zero and not an O, by the way.

supersmith2500 28 August, 2013 @ 15:16

It was supposed to be this week. But unfortunately it was delayed for a week.

Try set the language to English US from the settings app. I have it on that setting and it appeared English for me let along I own the retail copy of the game.

@arkeologen24: I can’t be just a weekend discount because the ps+ discount was still available this past Monday and Tuesday , store is broken stuff like this always happens when they update it :(

Spelunky looks nice on the Vita. Now fix the framerate issues in the later levels. It seems like someone forgot to QA those.

When we getting walking dead. Is the wait going to be like CSGO.

castle of illusion still up today?
