The return of Yooka-Laylee and the console edition of Frostpunk headline this week’s roster of new PlayStation Store releases for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

Playtonic’s Yooka & Laylee return to PlayStation 4 this week in a brand new adventure. Whereas the first Yooka-Laylee game was a faithful tribute to early 3D platformersThe Impossible Lair takes its inspiration from Rare’s 16-bit era Donkey Kong Country series. Reviews suggest a flawed game but one that also sees Playtonic finding confidence in their own abilities rather than slavishly adhering to the past.

Also coming to PlayStation 4 is A Brave Plan’s The Bradwell Conspiracy, a new first-person narrative adventure set in a mysterious complex hidden beneath Stonehenge. The game’s innovative puzzle mechanics – based on photographic messaging and 3D-printing – are certainly intriguing and a new Austin Wintory score is always something to savour.

11 Bit Studios’ city-building survival game Frostpunk needs little introduction. The game was a smash hit on PC following its release in 2018 and (assuming the console port is up to scratch) it should also shine on PlayStation 4.

Other new games include Frozenbyte’s Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince and PS4 exclusive, Concrete Genie. We’re also looking forward to the latest game in Codemasters’ Grid series. Check back later today for our review.
