Kentucky Route Zero, Journey to the Savage Planet, and the return of a PSP classic are the highlights of this week’s new PlayStation 4, PS VR and PS Vita releases.
Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition is our PlayStation 4 pick of the week. The new edition encompasses all five acts – and the ‘interludes’ – of Cardboard Computer’s acclaimed adventure game. It’s an atmospheric subversion of a time-worn genre, and one to be savoured. Enjoy the journey.
Speaking of which, Typhoon Studio’s debut, Journey to the Savage Planet, is a promising science-fiction adventure with a comedic edge. If the likes of No Man’s Sky and The Outer Worlds are too daunting, this could be the perfect trip. And speaking of games by Obsidian, the studio’s 2018 RPG Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire makes its long-awaited PlayStation 4 bow.
PSP classic Patapon 2 also makes a welcome return, marching onto PS4 in a remaster that includes 4K support and a host of new minigames.
Other new releases include Coffee Talk, It Came From Space And Ate Our Brains and Code Shifter. An early 80s classic also gets an update in shape of Lode Runner Legacy.
Here’s the complete lineup of this week’s new PlayStation Store releases.
