Five new PlayStation Store releases you need to check out this week

Sonic Mania, Matterfall, Undertale and more, plus the rest of this week’s releases

This week’s range of PlayStation Store releases cater for a variety of tastes, be you an open-world warrior, a life-long platforming fan, twitch-shooter addict or JRPG veteran. Below are just five of the games launching this week, with the full release list below them in full.

1. Sonic Mania

Sega’s blue hedgehog returns to his roots in this all-new 2D platformer, designed to look, sound and most importantly feel like the classic 90’s entries (but with a modern era sheen).

2. Undertale

TITLE
Toby Fox’s award-winning indie darling finally arrives on PS4 and PS Vita, fusing retro visuals, quirky role-playing game foundations and reflex testing bullet hell inspired battle sequence. The result? Something rather wonderful.

  • Out: 15th August
  • Why you should play it: hilariously fourth-wall breaking humour, sharp writing and refreshingly unpredictable gameplay makes this an unforgettable RPG. Oh, and you can play the entire game without killing a soul, if you want…
  • Find out more: The story behind PS4 & PS Vita’s post-modern RPG Undertale.

3. Matterfall

Not sated with delivering us just one sci-fi shooter spectacular this year in Nex Machina, Housemarque returns with fast-paced side-scroller Matterfall. Studio fans will know what they’re in for: another prime cut of twitch-based, beautifully explosive action adventure.

4. Cities: Skylines PS4 Edition


The creative city builder starts construction on PlayStation 4 this week. Set your sights on building a shining metropolis or just play havoc with a warped version of a city: it’s your call.

5. Agents of Mayhem

Volition’s Saints Row series is famous for its ultra-humorous and bizarre take on the open world genre. In Agents of Mayhem, the studio sets its sights on enhanced agents and supervillains battling it out in a futuristic Seoul. Cue – you guessed it – mayhem.

  • Out: 18th August
  • Why you should play it: Build a three-strong team from the choice of a dozen agents, each with a unique set of skills, then get to swapping between the trio at any time for some creative chaos.
  • Find out more: Enhanced for PS4 Pro: Agents of Mayhem.
