Fans of epic stories will find a lot to like in this week’s PlayStation Store update.

First up, Square Enix and Koei Tecmo have teamed up to create Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below (PS4), a Warriors-style game that’s based on the popular Dragon Quest franchise and features the beloved monster designs of Akira Toriyama.

Also available this week is the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode (PS4, PS3), Telltale’s recent collaboration with Mojang. Combining Minecraft’s distinctive visual style with an original story and an accomplished voice cast, Episode 1: The Order of the Stone should ensnare fans of Minecraft as well as Telltale’s patented brand of adventure gaming.

Finally this week, Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut (PS4) is a strategy RPG that’s also a direct sequel to the 1988 game that served as the inspiration for the Fallout franchise. That’s like a double dose of epic.

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