While the majority of Sony’s PlayStation Experience Showcase presentation focused on the future, the consolemaker also highlighted a handful of games that are now available to download through the PlayStation Store right now.
Leading the way (and tying in rather nicely with the Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite announcement) is the PS4 debut of Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3. This port of the one-on-one fighting game includes all the previously-released downloadable content as a visual upgrade promising full HD 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.
Keeping with the fighting theme, SNK brought back another of their classic fighters this weekend, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, on the PS4 and Vita as a Cross-Buy title.
However, if you prefer your punching and kicking with a bit more of a beat ’em up flair, then you might be interested in Le Cartel’s Mother Russia Bleeds. Featuring a violent and surrealist take on the genre, Mother Russia Bleeds exists “somewhere between the classic style of Streets of Rage and the ultra-violence of Hotline Miami,” according to its developer.
Ultraviolence also sits at the center of Let It Die, a free-to-play multiplayer hack and slash for the PS4 from Goichi “Suda51” Suda. Players will need to be smart as they take on their opponents, which is also an important facet of Lara Croft Go, a strategic Tomb Raider experience from Square Enix. It’s now available to download for the PS4 and Vita.
Finally this weekend, PlayStation VR owners will get the chance to get their hands bloody with Bossa Studios’ Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
Indie publisher Devolver Digital took center stage for a few minutes during Sony’s E3 2015 Press Conference, and the most-anticipated game to emerge from that partnership was most definitely Mother Russia Bleeds. Taking place in the USSR of an alternate universe, Mother Russia Bleeds is an ultra-violent beat ’em up in development at The Cartel. Earlier this week, the developer released a brand new gameplay trailer to give gamers a closer look at the game’s pixelated brutality.
Mother Russia Bleeds will include simultaneous four-player multiplayer when it launches for the PC and PS4 in 2016.
A video was shown during Sony’s E3 Press Conference showcasing a foursome of games from Devolver Digital for the PS4 and Vita, and they immediately caught my attention.
- Ronin is a 2D action game starring a sword-wielding ninja. The game looks to be similar to Guacamelee! and Shank.
- Eitr is an isometric action-adventure RPG. The dungeon crawler also features a very retro appearance.
- The two that really looked good to me were Mother Russia Bleeds and Crossing Souls. Both titles have a distinctive Streets of Rage-style look, with the former being hyper-violent amd almost Splatterhouse-like in appearance. I’m not sure what to expect with Crossing Souls, but the animation interludes looked liked the classic Don Bluth games Space Ace and Dragon’s Lair.
More on these four will be revealed at a later date.
