Here’s the full rundown on next week’s PlayStation Store releases for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

A packed week on the PlayStation Store includes the welcome remaster of an old game, and a retro-style prequel to a new one. What times we live in.

The much-anticipated release of Dark Souls Remastered adds improved textures and 4K support, but most importantly, a steady 60 fps framerate gives players the chance to experience Blighttown free of slowdown. Praise the sun.


Players looking forward to Koji Igarashi’s Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night might want to try Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. Inti Creates’ 8-bit style prequel captures the style and spirit of early Castlevania games perfectly.

Choose Your Own Adventure fans can look also forward to Detroit: Become Human, the latest exercise in decision-making from Quantic Dream. You can read our early thoughts here.

Also recommended is Jason Roberts’ perception-bending adventure game, Gorogoa. Read our report of his fascinating GDC talk for a look at the making of the game.

And last, but most certainly not least, farming sensation Stardew Valley makes its PS Vita debut, complete with cross buy support.

Here is the full PlayStation Store release lineup for the next week:
