This week on the PS Vita Store: Hotline Miami, Muramasa Rebirth, and Virtue's Last Reward
It's a mixed bag this week in terms of new digital content for Vita.
The stuff that's gone live or is about to go live is noteworthy, sure. There just isn't exactly a lot of it.
There are a load of big discounts, mind, so you should be able to find something to tickle your fancy in the paragraphs below.
Read on and prosper.Full-price releasesHotline Miami
! Hotline Miami
! Miami Hotline! Hotline? Miami! Miami Miami Hotline
If you hadn't already guessed, Hotline Miami
is out this week for £6.49 / $9.99. And it is really freakin' good. Get it downloaded, people.
Americans can finally purchase the long-awaited Muramasa Rebirth
this week for $34.99. This gorgeous Metroidvania-style adventure is a port of the original 2009 Nintendo Wii game.
It's not just a straight port, though. The Vita version contains some exclusive content, don't you know. Can we have it in Europe now, too, please?
There's also fresh DLC on the store this week - a load of it, in fact.
So, a costume pack for Guacamelee!
here, some Pinball Arcade
table bundles there, a few Ratchet & Clank: QForce
packs here, and more free DLC for Soul Sacrifice
over there.PlayStation Plus games and offers
Americans! You can download the downright fantastic Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
this week for free if you're a PS Plus subscriber. Grab it A.S.A.P. Why? 'Cos it's ace.
You lucky, lucky Yanks can also take advantage of a couple of wicked discounts.Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake
and Escape Plan
are now both $3.75, and are both well worth grabbing.
Europeans! Nothing. But you already got your fill this month, so don't moan.PlayStation Mobile releases
Another slew of new PS Mobile titles this week. Why did the PS Mobile section suddenly get so... errr... full?
There's some pretty interesting stuff available this week, too.Bike Rider DX
is a nifty-looking side-scrolling jump 'n' ride game. Bit steep at £4.79, mind.Cytus Lambda
is a free-to-try rhythm game that looks rather lovely. You get ten songs to begin with. If you hand over some virtual dollar, though, you can end up with 70+ songs.Floribund
appears to be a match-three game about matching flowers and skulls. Well, why not, hey? That's just 40p.MononokeSlashdown
could easily be mistaken for Draw Slasher
, if you ask me. Which you did. You swipe on the screen to cut enemies up... ninja style. £3.69, peeps.Sea Run
is another interesting one. Granted, it's yet another endless-runner. BUT it does have a Game Boy-esque visual style, and features a beach, balls, and coins. Ace.
involves your darting through an asteroid field and collecting glowing pylons. This one looks distinctly average, to be honest. Its RRP is 40p.PSP and PSone Classics
There's a huge PSone sale on this week. No, really.
On this massive list of discounted games are Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
and Crash Bandicoot
. You can see the full list on the EU PlayStation Blog
Problem is that not every single one of them seems to work on PS Vita. You have been formally warned.
And that's your lot. Back again next week!
