You’ll never forget today’s PlayStation Store update… and that’s not just a play on Capcom’s Remember Me! But yes, Capcom’s noirish third-person action game has been added to the PlayStation Store today alongside two fantastic games now available to download for the first time.
D3’s Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon was released for the PS3 in 2011 and a downloadable version is now available on the PlayStation Network. Shooting armored alien ants was fun two years ago and it’s still fun today.
Also available today is Playdead’s Limbo. The moody platformer was also originally released for the PS3 in 2011, but today’s re-release is for the Vita. Best of all, it’s a Cross-Buy game with the PS3 version.
More details about the above titles and a few other new releases (including Class of Heroes 2 for the PSP) can be found after the break. And the complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog.
