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.
