PlayStation Now June update adds a trio of Sonic games, Virtua Fighter 5, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Sony has confirmed the next batch of games that will be added to PlayStation Now in June, with a total of seven games confirmed. This includes a trio of Sonic games. Those three Sonic games are Sonic Manic, Team Sonic Racing, and Sonic Forces which all offer a different experience while playing as SEGA’s mascot. The other games that will be added to PlayStation Now in June include The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – GOTY Edition, Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, Slay The Spire, and Car Mechanic Simulator.


Virtua Fighter V: Ultimate Showdown was officially announced last month and confirmed for June’s PS Plus line up. Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown’s development is being led by an “all-star team” from Sega AM2 and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio to celebrate Sega’s 60th anniversary. Virtua Fighter 5 itself is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, having first released in the arcades in 2006, before a PS3 and Xbox 360 port in 2007. It’s the most recent entry in the series – well, there was the 2012 Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, which it now transpires is not so final – with many having feared that Sega’s fighting legacy was falling into obscurity.

Slay The Spire reviewed very well when Jason played it. He wrote:

Slay the Spire takes the best parts of roguelites, dungeon crawlers, and card games, and mixes them together into an unholy, but absurdly enjoyable game. It’s the kind of game that gets under your skin and uses it like a tent, just camping out and reminding you that you aren’t playing it. It’s the kind of game that you can jump in for one quick run and suddenly realise that you’ve been playing for five hours and should really be asleep. It’s the kind of game that is easy to play, hard to master, and impossible to put down. What more could you want?
The Sonic games all had a variety of scores when we reviewed them. Sonic Forces was the joint lowest scoring one with Dave giving it a slightly above average 6/10. Team Sonic Racing had the exact score with Dom not being overly taken with the game. Meanwhile, Sonic Mania performed much better with Dave giving it a 10/10. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best RPGs out there and if you are yet to play it but have PS Now then it is definitely worth giving a go.

  1. And there’s 25% of both PS Now and PS+ subscriptions today. Not as good as the 30% off last year, but still only £37.49 for a year. Or £75 for both. 7% more than it cost last year?
