Here are full details of next week’s PlayStation Store releases for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.
Despite its generic title, Genesis Alpha One is one of the week’s most intriguing new releases. Developed by Radiation Blue – with support from Team17 – the game combines roguelike mechanics, first-person shooting, and ship building in an ambitious tale of intergalactic exploration.
Back on Earth, The Hong Kong Massacre serves up a violent story of revenge. Vreski’s game is inspired by the movie genre its name suggests, and packed with over-the-top action and cinematic flair. Think John Woo meets Hotline Miami.
If you’re looking for Wargroove – the new strategy game from Chucklefish – you’ll have to pick it up on Xbox One or Nintendo Switch. A PlayStation 4 version is in the works, but doesn’t have a confirmed release date.
And finally, there’s a little game by the name of Kingdom Hearts III to enjoy.
Here’s the full lineup of new PlayStation store releases.

- Bombfest (Jan 31)

There’s also a little time left to pick up Portal Knights and Steep, which are among the games included in January’s PS Plus lineup.
