Another big day for the PlayStation Store as indie platformer Thomas Was Alone, zombie melee-er Dead Island: Riptide, and movie tie-in Star Trek are now available to purchase with your download dollars. Like the rest of the games in Sony’s Spring Fever promotion, Thomas Was Alone is a Cross-Buy title, meaning you’ll be able to pick up the PSN and Vita versions in the same download.
Also available this week is Ubisoft’s World War II dogfighter, Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII; the latest game in the Soul Calibur series, Soul Calibur V; Capcom’s standalone Dragon’s Dogma expansion, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen; and the retro shooter God Mode.
Finally this week, Sony has added a pair of Vita games, the ninja-riffic Draw Slasher and the ridiculously titled Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R… I mean, seriously now… there are four extra modifiers in that title. Even Capcom won’t go that far.
Hit the jump for more details on all of these games and a few others (including a new PSP game!). And be sure to visit the PlayStation Blog for a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons.
