Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and a lot of Atelier games are among the new PlayStation Store releases for the PlayStation 4 and PS VR.
Just like on the Xbox One, the big-ticket item this week on the PlayStation 4 is Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, an open-world RPG from CyberConnect2. There’s a chance to relive the story of Goku and the other Z Fighters, but of particular note is Bonyū, an all-new character from Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama. This is essential for Dragon Ball Z fans.
We’re not going to write them all out again in this blurb – they’re long and unwieldy, and they’re in the list down there – but a bunch of Atelier games are also included in this week’s PlayStation 4 releases. They’re all available together as the Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe pack, but you can also pick them up individually, if that’s how you roll.
Meanwhile, Darwin Project looks to capitalise on the success of the battle royale genre (how recent and current of them!) by mashing up Fortnite Battle Royale with Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games series. It combines the arena combat and number-whittling of other battle royale games with the audience participation of The Hunger Games, where spectators can send boosts and power-ups to the remaining players.
Here’s the complete lineup of this week’s new PlayStation Store games.
