Here’s the rundown of games coming to the PlayStation Store from Tuesday March 28, 2017.
It’s a whopper of a week on the PlayStation Store, with 22 new games hitting digital shelves from Tuesday.
If you’re a fan of America’s Pastime you’ll be pleased to see the release of both MLB The Show 17, and R.B.I. Baseball 17. Both series has its fans, with the former offering a more detailed simulation of the sport, and the latter offering instant arcade thrills.
This week also sees the release of an HD remake of the original Wonderboy. It looks reasonable enough, but unless you’re a committed fan of the series we’d recommend waiting for the upcoming remake of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, which is a much better game all round.
Also recommended is colourful slither ‘em up, Snake Pass. We played the Nintendo Switch version at GDC, and came away thoroughly impressed.
And if there’s one game you should not get this week, it’s APB: Reloaded. We won’t say why, just steer well clear.
Here’s the full lineup:
PlayStation Store releases for March 28, 2017
- APB: Reloaded (31st)

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.
