A delightful RPG from the makers of Pokémon tops the list of new PlayStation 4 video game releases.
Little Town Hero, the charming rural RPG from Pokémon developer Game Freak, arrives on PlayStation 4 this week, some eight months after its Nintendo Switch debut. The PS4 version features some welcome updates including an easy mode that helps reduce some of the grind. It’s a charming, and refreshingly low stakes, role-playing adventure.
Following a one-month delay on the starting grid, Aspyr Media’s remaster of Star Wars Episode I: Racer also arrives on PS4 next week. Although the game’s graphics, audio, and framerate have been updated, this is very much the sci-fi racing experience we know and love from 1999. There’s only one word for that. Yippee!
Other new releases of note include the barbarically cute hack n’ slash adventure Conan Chop Chop, and Quill’s quirky canine visual novel, A Summer With the Shiba Inu.
Here are the PS4 games confirmed for release this week. We’ll update this page if and when we get news of any late additions.
