Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, Journey, Mega Man Legends, more added to PS Store

Prepare to fly high in this week’s PlayStation Store update.

Activision has brought back Tony Hawk for the 13th time in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. While some players would quibble with the numbering system employed by Activision, both the publisher and Tony Hawk himself have said that the new game is meant to be a throwback to the franchise’s late 90s roots.

Of course, you don’t need a skateboard to fly high… you could just be a seven-footer who has some skill with a basketball. Both 2K Games and EA Sports are back with new basketball simulations this week as NBA 2K16 (PS4, PS3) and NBA Live 16 (PS4) are now available to download. 2K16 wants to capture what it really feels like to be an NBA player with a Career Mode written and directed by Spike Lee. Meanwhile, Live 16 wants to capture what it really feels like to be an NBA player by offering an upgraded player customization engine.

Also, players will explore the highest reaches of critical acclaim with two games that have found new homes this week. Journey: Collector’s Edition brings the wordless adventure experience from thatgamecompany to the PS4 for the first time, while Mega Man Legends is a PSone Classic that’s finally available to download through the PlayStation Store. Mega Man Legends is such a “get” for the PlayStation Store that even its publisher, Capcom, thought it would never be re-released. But they appear to have settled whatever contracts needed to be settled and we can all play Mega Man’s first 3D outing once more.

Finally this week, if you own a PS Vita, I hope you feel like dancing, as Atlus has released Persona 4: Dancing All Night for Sony’s handheld. I’m also being told that the publisher expects you to boogie, so there’s that too.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) is available after the break. And, as always, a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog.
