Afterparty, Yakuza 4 and Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD headline this week’s lineup of new PlayStation 4 releases.
Two Sega-published games are our recommendations from next week’s roster of new PlayStation Store releases. First up is the HD remaster of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz. The 2006 Nintendo Wii game gets a welcome visual update and a guest appearance from none other than Sonic the Hedgehog. It’s not the best entry in the series but there’s a lot of fun to be had across its campaign and multiplayer mini-games.
Sega’s second release sees Kazuma Kiryu return in another tale of murder and revenge as the long-awaited Yakuza 4 remaster finally comes to the West.
Two 16-bit classics – Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King – also get the remaster treatment. Each game gets a suite of modern improvements including HD graphics, gameplay rewind, optional cheats and an asset museum. The pack also includes an unreleased version of Aladdin.
This week’s most intriguing game is Afterparty from Night School Studio. It promises plenty of dark laughs as two deceased friends find themselves in a drinking competition with Satan.
Other new PS4 gmaes include Close to the Sun, 39 Days to Mars and Ghost Parade. Here’s the full lineup.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
