After E3, it’s back to business for the PlayStation Store.
This week’s most interesting release is Mighty No. 9. Over the last two and half years Comcept’s game has gone from being a plucky Kickstarter that gave the finger to Capcom, to a much-delayed and embarrassingly marketing joke. At least it can now be judged on gameplay alone. The game hits retail for PlayStation 4 but is available digitally on PlayStation 3.
Other titles of note are Umbrella Corps, the Resident Evil universe set FPS no-one ever asked for, and the PlayStation 4 release of Pac-Man 256, the inventive glitch-inspired game from Hipster Whale, creators of Crossy Road.
Here’s the full line-up.
PlayStation Store releases for 21st June 2016.
- Deadlight: Director’s Cut
- Drawful 2
- Dreamals: Dream Quest
- Electronic Super Joy
- Funk of Titans (Cross Buy)
- MXGP2 — The Official Motocross Video game
- N.E.R.O.: Nothing Ever Remains Obscure
- Pac-Man 256
- Pirates: Treasure Hunters
- Professional Farmer 2017 (out 24th)
- Umbrella Corps

- Mighty No. 9
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
