The over-the-top cliches, pulsing neon, and sheer lunacy that make up Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon are now available on the PlayStation Store. Ubisoft’s masterpiece is joined by Telltale’s poker room crossover, Poker Night 2; Keiji Inafune’s first post-Capcom game, Soul Sacrifice; and one of the greatest PS2 Classics of all time, Katamari Damacy.
A pair of special editions are also available on the PlayStation Store this week including “The Director’s Cut” of the divisive Deadly Premonition and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, the PS3-exclusive special edition of Ninja Gaiden II.
Finally this week, the PlayStation Store will see the release of Zombie Tycoon II: Brainhov’s Revenge, a PS3/Vita Cross-Buy title and the final “Spring Fever” game, and T.A.C. Heroes, a PSP shooter.
More details on all of these games can be found after the break and a rundown of this week’s new game add-ons is available at the PlayStation Blog.
