There’s hockey, puppets, crossovers, alien wars, and ancient RPGs in this week’s PlayStation Store update. For those who couldn’t crack the code, I’m referring to…
- NHL 14, EA Sports’ latest hockey simulation.
- Puppeteer, a new game from Sony Japan Studio that takes place in a magical puppet theatre (and, as far as I know, there aren’t even any evil puppets).
- Street Fighter X Tekken, the only crossover between these two fighting franchises for the forseeable future.
- Killzone: Mercenary, which brings the franchise’s alien war to the Vita for the first time this week.
- And finally, Dragon Fantasy Book II is a PS3/Vita Cross-Buy title that brings back a few memories of the 16-bit RPG age.
There’s more releases after the break and complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons is available at the PlayStation Blog.
