US PS Store Update – DUST 514 beta, The Cave, Ni No Kuni and more
A handful of new releases, a stack of DLC and a highly-anticipated beta lead this week’s US PlayStation Store update.
We get a handful of new full PlayStation 3 games this week. The headliner is probably Level-5 and Studio Ghibli’s gorgeous RPG, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, but you’ll also find Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Racquet Sports and Just Dance 4.
The new games don’t stop there, with two PSN game releases. Double Fine’s The Cave is the long-awaited new adventure from Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert, while Mad Dog McGree evokes another kind of nostalgia, for old laser arcade games. Demos are available for both.
Disgaea 2 is the newest PS2 Classic, while CCP’s Dust 514, the MMO shooter which ties in with EVE Online, is now in open beta. Go in hard, kids; those guys aren’t messing around in there.
On the Vita, we have escapeVektor, from Spirit Hunters developer Nnooo. This Aussie-made gem is one of the top-rated games on the 3DS eShop and has players attempting to escape a CPU.
There’s a new title free for PlayStation Mobile users on Vita, Sony tablets or certified HTC devices: Beats Slider.
PlayStation Plus members enjoy a number of discounts, and one free game – Foosball 2012 for Vita and PlayStation 3.
The Dead Space 3 and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demos are out, as is a taster for the Vita version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
On the DLC side, there’s loads of stuff for Borderlands 2; Dance Magic; Dead or Alive 5; Just Dance 4; LittleBigPlanet 2, LittleBigPlanet Vita; Max Payne 3; Rock Band 3 and RockSmith.
And you know what? There’s even a new PSP game: Pro Evolution Soccer 2013. If hat dosn’t put a cherry on it I don’t know what will.
