Today marks the beginning of Sony’s “Spring Fever,” which will highlight four new independent games on the PlayStation Network over the next four weeks. First up is Guacamelee!, a platformer where players take control of a famous luchador and battle Carlos Calaca for the hand of El Presidente’s Daughter (the most beautiful girl in the entire world). Also, there are chickens. Guacamelee! is also a PS3/Vita Cross-Play title, so buying one gets you both.
Firaxis Games’ alien invasion simulation, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, also comes to the PlayStation Store this week. It’s joined by Platinum’s multiplayer brawler, Anarchy Reigns, Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X., and John Daly’s ProStroke Golf.
The PS2 Classics section grew by one as well yesterday, with the addition of Fatal Frame.
More details on all of these games, and a few PSone Imports, can be found after the break. A complete list of this week’s new game add-ons is available, as always, at the PlayStation Blog.
