An updated version of Virtua Fighter 5 headlines the new PlayStation Store games coming to PS4 and PS5.

Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown arrives on PlayStation 4 (and PS5) this week. The updated version of the 2006 arcade classic includes HD graphics, updated character and stage models, and a host of online modes. The game is a PlayStation console exclusive and also one of June’s PS Plus titles.

Another new release coming to PS Plus – but only for PS5 owners – is Operation: Tango from Clever-Plays Studio. It’s an espionage-themed co-op adventure set in a high-tech near-future world. If the puzzles are challenging enough, this could be a surprise online multiplayer hit that captures some of that Portal 2 co-op magic.


Other new releases include Necromunda: Hired Gun, a new FPS set in the Warhammer 40K universe, and Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection, the divisive but fundamentally faithful reimagining of Capcom’s classic arcade game.

Here’s the full lineup of new PS5 and PS4 game. We’ll update this page if we get confirmation of any additional PlayStation Store releases.
