US PlayStation Store Update for April 10th: Skullgirls, The Pinball Arcade, Persona 3 FES

Written by: / / No Comments

This week’s PlayStation Store update has a little something for everyone whether you’re a fan of pinball, 2D fighting games or classic PS2 RPGs. There’s also lots of new DLC to browse through, including free content for Mass Effect 3 and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, as well as a new map pack for Uncharted 3.

PS Store Update 10/04/12

The Pinball Arcade is the latest PSN release to only require a single purchase to download both the PS3 and PS Vita versions. This game features virtual recreations of popular pinball tables and tries to be as authentic as possible in every conceivable area. I’m looking forward to downloading the free trial to my PS Vita later and seeing if it’s as awesome as it sounds.

Skullgirls is a new 2D fighting game on PSN this week. It features an all female cast, crazy combos and distinctive anime visuals. There’s also a trial/demo available if you want to take it for a spin before you withdraw $14.99 from your PSN wallet.

The PS2 Classics on the PlayStation Store at the moment aren’t necessarily representative of popular demand but the arrival of Persona 3 FES this week will make many RPG fans very happy indeed.
The game is also available on PSP/PS Vita as Persona 3 Portable so all PlayStation users now have access to this excellent, supernatural adventure from yesteryear.
