All the games coming to the PlayStation Store on April 19th, 2016.
There’s a definite retro-feel about the pick of this week’s PlayStation Store releases. First up is a quartet of classic arcade titles to receive excellent ports from Bandai Namco. The Arcade Game Series has seen some interesting titles released to date but this week’s crop of Dig Dug, Galaga, and Pac-Man and Ms Pac-Man are all bone-fide classics.
Also out this week are a couple of games very much influenced by the past. The superb Axiom Verge comes to PS Vita – and also gets the Cross Buy treatment – while Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse finally comes to PS4. Both games successfully manage to combine the feel of the 8 and 16 bit eras with modern design sensibilities, and both come recommended.
Here’s the full line-up.

- Arcade Game Series: Dig Dug
- Arcade Game Series: Galaga
- Arcade Game Series: Ms. Pac-Man
