PS Store Today: Full Throttle Remastered, Flinthook, Guardians of the Galaxy, more

The PlayStation Store is flying a retro-themed flag once again this week, and we start things off with Full Throttle Remastered, which is now available to download for the PS4 and Vita as a Cross-Buy purchase.

Originally released in 1995, and developed by Tim Schafer, Full Throttle is a point-and-click adventure where players get mixed up in the high octane world of “Motorcycles, Mayhem, and Murder.” The Remastered version of the game includes full Trophy support, optional high resolution artwork, and a commentary track with the game’s creators.

Also availabe to download this week is another blast from the mid 90s… The Disney Afternoon Collection for the PS4. All six games in The Disney Afternoon Collection (Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, DuckTales 2, and TaleSpin) were originally released for the NES, and this new compilation includes Boss Rush and Time Attack modes, retro-themed graphical filters, and Trophy support.

The third game in this week’s retro parade is Flinthook, a prodcedurally-generated side-scroller from Tribute Games. Available to download for the PS4, Flinthook stars a space pirate who loves his handy grappling hook and stealing booty from rival pirates.

Goichi “Suda51” Suda is no stranger to a wild and wacky adventure, and that’s true of The Silver Case, which can be downloaded for the PS4 this week. The remastered re-release of Suda’s visual novel (which was never-before-available in North America) includes an “intricate story” and remade high definition visuals.

Finally this week, Telltale Games will kick off their Guardians of the Galaxy series with Episode 1 – Tangled Up In Blue. The Nova Corps has tasked the Guardians with stopping Thanos… and that goes about as well as you’d expect. It’s available to download now for the PS4, and all five episodes in the series will be released by the end of the year.

You can learn more about all of this week’s additions to the PlayStation Store after the break. (more…)

FullThrottleRemasteredThe wonderful James Spafford, Community Manager at Double Fine, wrote an awesome post at the PlayStation Blog about the remastering of Full Throttle!

“With the smell of burning asphalt hanging staunchly in the air, we’re proud to announce that we’ll be remastering Tim Schafer’s classic LucasArts adventure game Full Throttle!” he wrote excitedly. With their Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle remasters, this “will complete the trilogy of Tim’s games from LucasArts that we’ve been given the chance to restore.” The original creators will be involved, and the remaster of the game will have new artwork, restored sound and music, and will have lots of special features, including “concept artwork, commentary tracks, and as many other things as we can think of!”

Full Throttle Remastered will be coming to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC.
