US PlayStation Store Update for April 9th: Guacamelee!

Written by: / / No Comments

It’s a fairly quiet week on the PlayStation Store with just 49 new content items. PlayStation Plus subscribers can pick up last year’s quirky PSN dungeon crawler Labyrinth Legends at no extra cost to their subscriptions, and save 20% on new PS3/PS Vita release Guacamelee! from Canadian developer DrinkBox Studios.

Guacamelee! is another great example of connectivity between the two consoles as this colourful action-platformer supports Cross-Buy, Cross-Save and Cross-Control, meaning that your co-op partner can use a PS Vita as a controller if you only have one DualShock 3.

You can browse through all this week’s new releases via the list below or directly on the PlayStation Web Store:
