Homefront: The Revolution, Shadow of the Beast, Valkyria Chronicles Remastered, more added to PlayStation Store

Unconventional warfare is the linchpin that holds many of the biggest titles in this week’s PlayStation Store update together.

First up is Sega’s Valkyria Chronicles Remastered, a PS4 re-release of the highly-acclaimed strategy RPG. Originally released for the PS3 in 2008, Valkyria Chronicles captured the hearts and minds of gamers everywhere with its blend of magical abilities and tactical modern warfare.

Speaking of modern warfare, Deep Silver’s Homefront: The Revolution is also now available to download for the PS4. In this sequel, history repeats as the North Korean invasion of the US continues, and players are forced to fight for their independence on the streets of Philadelphia. History also repeats in Shadow of the Beast, a PS4 remake of the popular side-scroller originally released for the Amiga.

Finally this week, NIS America’s Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice makes its PlayStation Store debut more than eight after the game was originally released for the PS3. If you’ve been waiting all this time to pick it up, now you don’t even have to leave your couch.

More information on all of these titles (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And don’t forget, the PlayStation Blog recently published a complete rundown of this week’s new add-ons and discounts.
