PSN Today: Assassin’s Creed III, Need For Speed Most Wanted, Okami HD, More

Sony has added another massive mess of new games to the PlayStation Store, so let’s not waste any time…

This week’s biggest new release is, without a doubt, Assassin’s Creed III. The PS3 game brings the Assassins versus Templars feud to Revolutionary times and marks the end of the AC trilogy as we know it. But never fear, Assassin’s Creed spinoffs are coming, such as the Vita-exclusive Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, which is also available to download today.

Speaking of PS3/Vita pairings, Criterion’s Need For Speed: Most Wanted is available in both a PS3 and Vita version. Each edition of the game will have to purchased separately, but you can challenge those cops whether you’re at home or on the road.

Capcom’s beloved Okami has also been added to the PSN today in a special HD remake. If you’d prefer something a little more action-packed, the Twisted Metal reboot is also available on the PS Store today. Rounding out the rest of the PS3 releases are two Move-based titles: Sports Champions 2 and Toy Story Mania.

Vita owners will also get three more games to choose from: the Norse mythoogy of Ragnarok Odyssey, the brain training of Smart As…, and the bricky lit of Lego Lord of the Rings.

Hit the jump for more information on all of these (as well as one PS2 Classic and two PSP games) and check out the PlayStation Blog for all the latest game add-ons recently added to the PlayStation Store.
