Iron Galaxy had a special announcement to give Evo attendees and Divekick fans at the event this year. We finally know when the game is coming out! Divekick will be available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on August 20 for the low low price of $9.99. It will also support cross-buy, meaning that a purchase on one console will net you a downloadable copy for the other.

 

 

Also, make sure to check out Iron Galaxy’s live stream from Evo 2013, where they will be showing off the game while attendees duke it out in casuals.

    10 dollars is not a bad deal, to be honest. The fact that it adds the cross-buy function makes it more of a reasonable price now.

  • badjab326

    is it Cross-play though? Can PS3 players play against Vita players?

  • togsolid

    I’m a little surprised this isn’t being sold for $8.95.

    • Mike Pureka

      I don’t get it. What’s special about $8.95?

      • togsolid

        To quote from elsewhere because I’m lazy:

        A reference to Vesper Arcade’s Canada Cup fighting game tournament stream.

        “You could pay 8.95 to get the HD quality options of the stream and remove ads.

        Those who didn’t pay literally got ads in between every single match, and since ads aren’t timed with the video in the stream and shown in real time, they would play before people saw the matches end. Then, the stream ran into an insane amount of lag, making the HD options and anything above 240p virtually unwatchable.

        Even after all of that, Vesper Arcade still played twitch.tv promotions and whored sponsors through the stream video, completely screwing over everyone who paid 8.95 for nothing when everyone pretty much downloaded adblock to get past all the bullshit.”

        It quickly became a meme within the FGC. Even Divekick had a reference to it in an early build via an $8.95 DLC gem (that required a third button that doesn’t exist to use).

        • Mike Pureka

          Ahhh! Thanks! Yes, that would’ve been funny then!

  • Gethoff Mahfacebuk

    Steam release date?

  • Player1

    Cross-buy? That is the way.

  • KubikiriTurkojin

    this game is bs

    • Johnson Nguyen

      I’d compare it to a perfectly good steak spoiled by drowning it in chocolate, ketchup, and fish oil.

      • KubikiriTurkojin

        i like your example, except for the steak part. this is no good steak. its more like cheap ham instead of a premium steak.

        p.s. how do you say bon fillet in english? you know, the best part of the animal, also the softest most tender part. tender loins?

        • Mike Pureka

          Yeah, I think you’re looking for “tenderloin”

          • KubikiriTurkojin

            hmmmmm, i love me some tenderloin.

            here we pay between the 17 and 24 euros for a piece of tenderloin in a restaurant. 16 euros for a kilo but thats in a supermarket or at the butchers.

            hhhmmmmmmmmmmmm, ill be at the restaurant tonight……..
