SoulCalibur VI and Starlink: Battle For Atlas lead the lineup of new PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita games coming to the PlayStation Store.

It’s a busy week on the PlayStation Store, but choose carefully, for every good game there’s a Palm Reading Premium.

Pick of the week is SoulCalibur VI from Bandai Namco. A whole host of fan favourite fighters return – Ivy, Volvo, Maxi, and Talim, to name just a few – and they are joined by brand new characters, Groh, Azwel, and Geralt from The Witcher.


Another promising release is Ubisoft’s spacey shooter, Starlink: Battle For Atlas. It remains to be seen if the toys-to-life genre can be resuscitated, but Starlink isn’t dependant on its little plastic figures, and looks enjoyable in its own right.

Other PlayStation 4 highlights include Koei Tecmo’s hack and slash adventure, Warriors Orochi 4, and Lego DC Super-Villains from Warner Bros. Here’s the full release lineup.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
