A handful of new releases were added to the PlayStation Store today including this week’s Spring Fever selection, Bastion. Originally released for the Xbox 360 and PC in 2011, Bastion is the first game from Supergiant Games, the creators of last year’s well-liked Transistor. If you like your isometric action RPGs with a side on in-game narration, Bastion is one to look out for. Other new releases this week include…
- Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (PS4, PS3) – A re-release of Dark Souls II that includes all three DLC expansions, new story bits, and enhanced graphics.
- Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones (PS4/PS3/Vita Cross-Buy) – A puzzle platformer sequel from Curve Studios.
- Tower of Guns (PS4/PS3 Cross-Buy) – A “bullet hell” first person shooter.
More information on all of these titles (and a few others) can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog.
