Are these April’s PlayStation Plus games?

1 min read


Every month, that PlayStation Plus subscription affords gamers a handful of fantastic games at no cost beyond the subscription. It’s given us great games like Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Uncharted: Golden Abyss and more, for an annual subscription that’s less than the cost of a brand new game. These could be the next games coming to the service.

According to Playstation’s Hong Kong blog, these are the games that that region will be getting – which usually aligns pretty well with what we get in the English-speaking world, though there are usually few differences.

Anyway, they say that PlayStation 3 owners can look forward to Sly Cooper: Thieves in time, Soul Calibur 2 HD Online and NiGHTS into dream. Vita owners also get Sly Cooper: Thieves in time along with Dynasty Warriors Next. It’s worth noting that the games on those platforms do change depending on region.

Interestingly, the PlayStation 4 offerings have been the same in all regions, and PlayStation Asia says that next month, it’ll be Mercenary Kings. Yes, it’s yet another indie title. But this one looks pretty damned cool, especially if you like games like Metal Slug and Contra – with a few RPG sensibilities.

Developed the retro-tastic guys who made Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Tribute Games, Mercenary Kings offers 4 player co-op side-scrolling pew-pew-pew action. It looks like Metal Slug…on crazy pills. And that’s awesome.

Another rumour suggests Europe will be getting Mercenary Kings on the PS4, PES 2014 and Sly Cooper on the PS3, and Hotline Miami and Moto GP13 on the Vita. It’s a…decent, but not groundbreakingly or earth-shatteringly exciting selection..but it’ still probably better than April’s Games for Gold.

      I really suspect NiGHTS will be HK only. So…PES 2014 for you. 😛

    This is the problem with PS+, you never know what you are getting for free. Indie games are great but it does leave the PS4 users wanting for full on titles.
