Cris Tales and Orcs Must Die! 3 are our picks from this week’s lineup of new PlayStation Store releases for the PS4 and PS5.
We’ve been following the development of Dreams Uncorporated’s Cris Tales for some time. The game impressed on the preview circuit, and the free demo also bodes well. Hopefully, this eye-catching and time-bending action RPG will live up to its promise when it arrives on PlayStation consoles – and Xbox and Switch – later this week.
Another highlight from this week’s PlayStation Store release list is Cotton Reboot, an updated, remastered version of the cult favourite arcade shoot ’em up, Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams. The game includes an X68000 mode that emulates the 1993 Sharp computer edition, a 16:9 mode with redesigned graphics and characters, and a score attack mode with online leaderboards.
Other new releases include the impressive exploratory platform game Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights, Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed and tower defence hit, Orcs Must Die! 3. We’ll keep this page updated with any last-minute additions during the week ahead.
