PS Store Today: Invisible Inc, Lichdom Battlemage, Axiom Verge for Vita, more

It’s Tuesday, so it’s time for Sony to update the PlayStation Store.

The consolemaker’s Launch Party promotion continues to roll on this week with the addition of Invisible Inc to the PlayStation Store. Previously available only on the PC, the isometric stealth game sneaks onto the PS4 this week in a special “Console Edition” that also includes the Contingency Plan expansion.

PS4 owners can also look forward to the addition of Lichdom: Battlemage to the PlayStation Store this week. The first-person spell casting game also debuted on the PC last year, but its fast-paced action and elemental magic system can now be controlled with a DualShock 4 controller.

And speaking of games with new homes, Axiom Verge has shrunk itself down to Vita size this week. The game, which is Cross-Buy compatible with the PS4 version, attempts to recreate the lonely existence of exploring an alien world that Metroid mined back in the 80s. So it’s almost fitting that it was developed by just one person.

Finally this week, Bandai Namco will re-release a quartet of arcade classics for the PS4. Dig Dug, Galaga, Ms. Pac-Man, and Pac-Man are now available to download for Sony’s newest console, and I’m sure this news is very exciting for the retro game fans out there.

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