Digging Deep with Shovel Knight Developer Yacht Club Games

Knight to see you

Since the release of Shovel Knight, developer Yacht Club Games has been lavished with nothing but love for how well its refined old-school goodness – in fact, some fans have even said that the 2D platformer has set a new standard for indies. We got in touch with the team's David D'Angelo to talk about bringing the title to...

Shovel Knight, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, LA Cops

New digs

And that's officially it: the big, blockbuster retail releases are taking a break for a few weeks – it's a good thing that there's tons of PlayStation Network stuff in the pipeline, huh? This week's a particularly good one for digital downloads, if only because Shovel Knight is part of the roster. We've been looking forward to Yacht...

Sony's Finally Doing Some Maintenance on PS4's Messaging Utility

Snail mail

Messages on the PlayStation 4 have gotten faster of late, but they're still not as immediate as they should be. Fortunately, platform holder Sony has announced some cross-platform maintenance on the PlayStation Network's communications module, which will run – in the UK at least – from 05:00AM BST until 08:00AM BST on Wednesday,...

People Are Going Ape Over This PS Vita Trademark

But it's probably nothing

Hype's a funny thing: it often leads people to jump to outrageous (and incorrect) conclusions. Take this PlayStation Vita hardware trademark, which some people seem to think is a new handheld revision. It was filed by Sony Computer Entertainment on 1st April, and spotted on a Twitter account which automatically posts fresh...

Fans' Dreams Come True as Amnesia: Memories Hits the Vita This Summer

They didn't forget

It topped the polls of "What female dating-sim do you want to be localised?" when Aksys Games conducted surveys after Hakuoki's release, and now fans get what they have been wishing for. Amnesia: Memories is coming digitally to the PlayStation Vita this summer, and will mark the first time that Idea Factory has released a dating...

Hyperdimension Neptunia U Clears a Path to PS Vita in May

Action unleashed

If it wasn't for NepNep and friends, the PlayStation Vita probably wouldn't command a retail store presence at all. Fortunately, the forthcoming Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed will put a brand new box on store shelves next month, as Idea Factory International readies yet another entry in the uber-niche series. This...

Brighten Up Your Day With Persona 4: Dancing All Night's Brand New Trailer

Friday night disco

Persona 4: Dancing All Night looks ridiculous, to put it mildly. The mystery solving gang of the original role-playing game are back to solve yet more mysteries, but this time, they'll be strutting their stuff and dancing the night away to get the job done. Tying a somewhat serious storyline into gameplay that involves pulling...

Meet the Man Who's Helping Students Publish PS4, Vita Games

"I want my students to be the next big indie developers"

With the emphasis on exclusives, marketing deals, and services, we rarely take the time to think about gaming at a grass roots level. Trailers and reviews command the majority of our traffic here at Push Square, so it's perhaps easy to overlook all of the effort that goes into schools and...

Store Update: 15th April 2015 (Europe)

15th April 2015 (Europe)

Meet your murderer

Consider this a catch-up edition of the weekly European PlayStation Store update. Yes, the likes of Mortal Kombat X may be headlining, but it's long overdue titles such as Costume Quest 2 and Home that caught our eye. Both of these released in North America many months ago, so it's nice to see SCEE finally back up to date. Now,...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Endures Another Hefty Slip, But Still Comes Out on Top 

Technically, at least

Yep, it's really happening: the PlayStation 4's recent dominance of the Japanese hardware charts is without doubt coming to a close, but even a weighty drop of about 10,000 sales hasn't been enough to knock Sony's home console off the top spot. You can compare last week's Japanese charts through here Selling through 17,855...

You like LEGO, right? Of course you do – only Mega Bloks fanboys shun the famous Danish bricks. Assuming that you don't fall into the latter category, then you're going to have a field day over the next couple of weeks, as practically every entry in Traveller's Tales' popular series is up for sale. That includes LEGO Batman 3: Beyond...

14th April 2015 (North America)

Late to the party

We may be late posting the North American PlayStation Store update – but that doesn't mean that the content's changed. Your interest in this article may have, however, so we're pondering whether it's worth putting any effort into this pre-amble at all. In fact, we could probably post this video of a slipping Buckingham Palace...
