Octodad: Dadliest Catch is finally here! It’s a very exciting week, as I’m sure many of you can’t wait to play the PS4’s first Totally Normal Dad Simulator. The only downside is the pricing, as we reported last week. Set at £11.99/€13.99, the EU is currently missing out on the PS+ launch discount that there is in the US. However, it has been said that we will be getting that discount soon (I’d guess alongside next month’s PS+ update), so if saving a few quid matters to you, then I would say to hold your Young Horses.
The only other PS4 addition of note is that Putty Squad is getting a PS4 and PS Vita Cross-Buy release for £19.99/€24.99.
Moving swiftly onward to the PS3, and it’s fighting games everywhere. The first big release this week is of Soulcalibur: Lost Swords, a single player free to play title in the popular sword fighting series. There’s not really much more to say about it; it’s Soulcalibur and it’s free!
It’s joined by the agressively titled BLAZBLUE CHRONOPHANTSAMA for £28.49/€34.99 and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle will arrive alongside it’s retail release later this week for £44.99/€54.99.
Then again, maybe you want to take a step back from the endless fighting and play a nice card game? Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels has you covered, with the latest real world trading cards included, coming in at £7.99/€9.99. Meanwhile, you’re now able to pre-order the Call of Duty: Ghosts – Devastation DLC pack for £11.59/€14.49 ahead of its release in a fortnight.
Rounding things out on PS3 is the release of the Arkham Origins: A Cold, Cold Heart DLC, which sees Batman tasked with ending Mr. Freeze’s latest dastardly plan. It will set you back £7.99/€9.99.
The Vita, meanwhile, launches you into a futuristic war that spans the solar system in Starlight Inception, a space combat game. If you fancy some space dogfighting, you can try the demo or buy the game for £12.99/€16.99.
The Walking Dead Season Two has been shrunk down to scale, launching on Vita today with episodes one and two for £3.99/€4.99 each. Alternatively, grab the season pass for £15.99/€19.99 to save a few bob.
Finally, the Vita also gets its latest dose of JRPG gaming, as the dungeon crawling Demon Gaze will land alongside its retail release.
Note: Demon Gaze is not mentioned in the EU PS Blog update, so may be a retail only release at this time, despite the store page.
That seems to be everything this week, but as per usual I’ll return to this post once the EU PS Blog has gone live and update anything that is missing.
Update: Just a few euro prices and the addition of Putty Squad.
