Here are full details of next week’s new PlayStation Store releases.
A relatively quiet week on the PlayStation Store lacks any major releases but does feature a clutch of promising indie games.
Our pick of the week is Nitrome’s quirky puzzle platformer, Bomb Chicken. Its SNES-inspired visuals are a treat for the eyes, and the action-packed, bomb-laying gameplay looks eggscellent.
If the phrase ‘fast-paced roguelite’ still gets the pulse racing, check out Fantastico Studio’s Black Paradox. The game was originally released on Steam Early Access last year, and is a welcome explosion of shoot ’em up action backed by a cool synth soundtrack.
Other new releases include Edmund McMillen’s acclaimed platformer, The End is Nigh, and Black Forest’s co-op survival game, Fade to Silence.
Here’s the full lineup of new releases.
