- PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Morgan Haro
has announced today that the King of Fighters XIII will be free for members as part of this month's PlayStation Plus update!
To quote: Once again, we're here to brighten your Monday with the weekly update on incoming Plus content this week.
So far in October, NFL Blitz joined the Instant Game Collection and Plus members received some discounts on Alex Kidd and Spelunker.
This week, please join us in thanking our friends at Atlus for delivering the legendary King of Fighters XIII, free for Plus members! These updates will take effect with the October 9th (that's tomorrow!) PlayStation Store update.
Don't have PlayStation Plus? Go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 to get access.
October 9th PlayStation Plus Update
King of Fighters XIII
Free for PlayStation Plus Members
Select Add-Ons (An additional 30% off the PSN Sale Price)
King of Fighters XIII captured the attention of the fighting game community at this year's amazingly salty EVO 2012 fighting game tournament
That said, we're happy to get this deep fighter in to the hands of Plus members everywhere! With tons of play modes, a refined, faster paced engine, over 30 beautifully rendered and animated characters, all with great online play; this is one fighter you won't want to miss.
You'll also find select Add-ons, including extra characters Mr. Karate, on sale for 30% off the PSN sale price, which is 50% off the regular store price. If you want to see how crazy the game can get, check out the final match in this year's tournament. Epic stuff.
The Revenge of Shinobi
80% Discount for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $4.99, PS Plus Price: $1.00)
SEGA's got more gaming to deliver this week with The Revenge of Shinobi available to Plus members for just $1. The Genesis original holds up with the gameplay and music you remember (as well as the crazy difficulty).
With save anywhere capabilities, Trophy support, and graphical touch ups for an HD close-up, it's an accessible classic that everyone should play.
Derrick the Deathfin (New PSN Release)
30% Discount (Regular Price: $7.99, PS Plus Price: $5.59)
You may have seen the PlayStation.Blog post revealing this PSN exclusive, and Plus members will be able to jump on a release week discount for this unique underwater papercraft action game (yes, that's accurate). Packing an amazing artistic design, 32 handcrafted levels, and diverse gameplay, it's a steal at just over $5.
Finally, we've got another poll for you. This time, we're curious to know what you would be most interested to see in PS Plus on PS Vita. The service is scheduled to arrive this November, and we'll have more concrete information as we lead up to launch.
And remember, it's all one Plus subscription whether you get Plus now, or later. Don't forget to also rank this post in the upper right corner too; we use all that data.
That's it for this week. Make sure you check out tomorrow's PlayStation Store update post to see all the details for this week's Plus update, and come back next week when we'll have more great Plus news to share (including another free game for October 16th).
