Minecraft Dungeons headlines this week’s lineup of new PlayStation 4 releases.
Minecraft Dungeons doesn’t feature mining. And nor does it feature crafting. It does, fortunately, feature dungeons.
The newly renamed Mojang Studios has partnered with Double Eleven for the console port of this procedurally-generated dungeon crawler. The game looks beautiful, plays like a dream, and is an accessible entry point to the genre. It might lack a little depth compared to Diablo and the like, but that’s no bad thing. It’s a hack and slash experience for all the family.
The fifth game in WayForward’s long-running Shantae franchise also comes to PS4 this week. Shantae and the Seven Sirens received a warm welcome on its Apple Arcade debut last year, but we think it will feel more at home on console. Expect another enjoyable Metroidvania wrapped up in glorious visuals.
Other new games include Let’s Sing 2020, Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen, and Camel 101’s psychological horror, Those Who Remain.
Here’s the full list of new PlayStation Store releases for the PS4, PS VR, and PS Vita. We’ll add any late additions to the list throughout the week.
