Sayonara Wild Hearts, Overland, and Ni No Kuni Remastered headline next week’s new PlayStation Store releases for the PS4.
After a busy few weeks for massive releases – Control, Gears 5, Borderlands 3, about 900 annual sports games – things have changed tack this week. There’s nary a triple-A game among this week’s PlayStation Store releases, but there are some very interesting and anticipated games nonetheless.
Everyone is very much looking forward to Sayonara Wild Hearts, the “pop album video game” that promises music, rhythm, action and colour in equal measure. The game releases on PS4 this week, while also simultaneously launching onto Apple’s new Apple Arcade subscription service when it opens for business on September 19.
Another game launching onto Apple Arcade and the PS4, day and date, is Overland. Developed and published by collaborative game studio, Finji, Overland is a bite-sized, post-apocalyptic strategy game built around beautiful diorama environments. Expect a combination of tight gameplay, very good boys, and very difficult decisions.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered first released on PS3 in 2011. Developed by Level-5 in conjunction with animation legends Studio Ghibli – the storied Japanese studio produced the game’s animated cut-scenes – Wrath of the White Witch comes to the current generation of consoles for the first time this week. The game releases on PS4 and Nintendo Switch, and also PC, on September 20.
Here’s the full list of games coming to PlayStation 4 next week.
