Japan’s PlayStation (Vita, PS3, PS4, PSP) Game Releases Feb. 2015 – Samurai Skirts Are OVER 9000!
Thursday the 5th was the first round of retail releases, as Japanese stores got Dragon Ball Xenoverse (PS4, PS3), Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (PS3), and Photokano Kiss (Vita).
The week of Feb. 9 – Feb. 15 is a weird one, because a national holiday falls on Wednesday. Since those are big deals for retail shopping, some companies are shipping games on that day, while a few others are sticking to the Thursday tradition.
On Wednesday the 11th, Samurai Warriors 4-II descends upon Vita, PS3, and PS4 while its provocative DLC costumes descend upon gamers who like spicier outfits. As well, PS3 gets Rewrite and Vita gets Gakuen Heaven: Boys Love Scramble!
Sticking to the Thursday guns are Lords of the Fallen for PS4 and Library Party for Vita.
Next week, things get back to normal. Releasing on Thursday, Feb. 19, PS4 and PS3 get Dead or Alive 5: Last Round in standard versions and collector’s edition bundle packs. PS4 and Vita will share God Eater 2: Rage Burst on that day as well. Terraria arrives on PS4, after having already hit everything else possible.
Meanwhile, Vita gets Otoko Yuyaku (The Men’s Red-light District) for Vita, Nippon Ichi’s Furaiki, and this samurai-themed boyfriend dating game:
On Friday the 20th, PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886 comes out.
Thursday the 26th is huge. PS3 and PS4 get Dragon Quest Heroes, and it’ll be interesting to see which version sells the best. PS4 versions have recently begun to outsell PS3 version of cross-gen titles, so that looks good for the new hardware.
Vita gets Captain Earth: Mind Labyrinth, OZMAFIA -vivace-, and Parufe.
Even the PSP gets a new game on that day, will Uta no Prince: All Star After Secret. The regular version is $58, with the special edition going for $78. In 2015, ladies and gentlemen. The PSP is still kind of alive and kicking. Ha. I love life.
If note this month, the Xbox One and Wii-U won’t be making their audiences much bigger. The only games going to Xbox One are multiplats — sometimes cross generation — and the Wii-U is actually not even getting a single new game release in February. None. That means even the PSP will be getting more software than the Wii-U for a month-long block of 2015. That’s bizarre. I’m not saying this with cheer, mind you. This post might be on a PlayStation site, but that doesn’t mean I want other hardware to fail. It’s always sad to see a system fail.
So hey, there are Japan’s PlayStation game releases for February 2015.
