PlayStation Summer of Indie Love Continues with New PSN Store Event


Kids may already be heading back to school in certain parts of the country, but the summer of 2013 isn’t quite dead yet.

Sony is closing out what’s left of summer with the start of a new PSN event. Over the next four weeks, beginning with tomorrow’s PSN store update, a new indie game will get the spotlight as part of the PlayStation Vita Summer Select promo. Despite the name, you don’t need a Vita at all to get in on the fun. All four participating games will be cross-buy enabled, so feel free to think of it as the PlayStation 3 Summer Select if you don’t own or use a Vita.

The Summer Select series begins August 20th with Divekick from Iron Galaxy Studios. Mossmouth’s Spelunky will follow on August 27th. After that, KickBeat from Zen Studios will rock the house on September 3rd and Muteki Corporation’s Dragon Fantasy: Book II will cap things off on September 10th.

Divekick and KickBeat will sell for $9.99, the other two for $14.99. PlayStation Plus will additionally receive a 20% discount on each title (that’ll drop the prices to $7.99 and $11.99 respectively), but only for one week after each release.
