PS Store This Week: Patapon Remastered, Dreadnought Open Beta, The Long Dark, more

The rhythm is gonna get you in this week’s PlayStation Store update…

That’s because Sony will bring Patapon Remastered to the PS4 this week. The visually-unique rhythm game was originally released for the PSP in 2008, and its relaunch includes support for 1080p and 4K resolutions and a full set of Trophies.

Also available to download for the PS4 this week is The Long Dark, an open world survival sim from Hinterland Studio. Players will explore “an expansive frozen wilderness in the aftermath of a geomagnetic disaster” as they attempt to survive for as long as possible.

Finally this week, PS4 owners will be able to try out the Open Beta for Dreadnought. Developed by Six Foot and Yager, players will pilot “massive capital ships” and engage in “tactical, team-based warfare throughout the Solar System.”

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

PaRappa the Rapper, LocoRoco, and Patapon remasters coming to PS4

Not content with remastering the Wipeout series for 4K and HDR gaming, Sony also announced during the PlayStation Experience that a trio of classic musical games would be getting the remaster treatment. Hip-hop pooch PaRappa the Rapper, the colourful characters of LocoRoco, and the marching armies of Patapon are all getting updated to HD on the PS4 (and 4K on the PS4 Pro).

Not only will the games be remastered in terms of graphics, but the controls will be retooled specifically for the DualShock 4, so players will be able to better feel the musical beats. LocoRoco will also incorporate motion gestures from the controller to make it easier to control the vibrant worlds.

Although Sony seems to be trying to out-do Nintendo with the amount of remasters it is pumping out, these three games, that were so original and possibly ahead of their time, will be a welcome addition to the current console generation.
