A new selection of games are coming to PlayStation. Sony’s Media Specialist, Ryan Clements has posted a new edition of ‘The Drop‘, a list of upcoming titles to the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Most of the releases will be available digitally via the PlayStation Store starting today, with a couple of exceptions coming on August 7th and 9th.
‘The Drop’ starts with Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II. A sequel to the awarded 2013 RPG, the game is set a month after the events of its predecessor. It follows the story of several young warriors in a nation torn apart by war.
A distinctive feature of this title is the ability to build relationships between the player’s party members throughout the game. These ‘link levels’ enable three different kinds of attacks named ‘Tactical Links’, and adds some cool buffs to the party during a battle.
Also, by recruiting allies, players can have access to exclusive shops, goods, and game modes.

This minimalistic platformer puts the player to avoid obstacles by following the rhythm of electronic music. As the game progresses, the soundtrack will change depending on the difficulty level.
