Just a handful of new games were added to the PlayStation Store this week, and it’s just as well, because a flurry of Gamescom announcements will suck up all the digital ink anyway.
The biggest game added in this week’s Store update is the latest PSN Play selection, Galak-Z: The Dimensional. A “tough” and “tactical” side-scrolling shooter with an anime twist for the PS4, Galak-Z also throws in some roguelike elements and a few mechs for good measure.
The rest of this week’s new releases, all of which are available for the PS4, include a healthy mix of unique titles:
- Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist, the latest CCG from Konami based on the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! anime.
- Submerged, a third-person exploration game that takes place within a mysterious sunken city.
- The Castle Game, a medieval tower defense game.
- AeternoBlade, a side-scrolling action RPG that was originally released for the 3DS and Vita.
- Boggle, the classic word game… now with a bunch of new modes.
- Trans-Galactic Tournament, a “fast-and-furious” overhead multiplayer battler.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog.
