This week’s North American PlayStation Store update presents a varied range of content, with indies, Japanese fighters and big sports franchises all rubbing shoulders.


Starting with the nebulous, you can pre-order MLB: The Show and Trials Fusion: Digital Deluxe Edition on PS4.

Back in the realm of the concrete, Mercenary Kings is out now on PS4, while the PS3 gets Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate Deluxe Edition, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, MLB 14: The Show, Jimmie Johnson’s Anything with an Engine and Ragnarok Odyssey Ace.

The Vita gets MLB 14: The Show and Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, too, while PS2 Classic Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs the Soulless Army is available.
