Spelunky, Nidhogg, Skulls of the Shogun and More Coming to PlayStationJon Ledford |
The PlayStation Blog announced that six more indie titles are on the way for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. The first title coming is Ironclad Tactics, a card-based tactics title. This real-time strategy game depicts an alternate version of the Civil War that is filled with steampunk-ish technology. This mechanized tale North vs. South will be coming out for PlayStation 4.
The next title, Jamestown Plus is is a 4-player shoot 'em up that takes place on a 17th century British Colonial Mars. This shooter was inspired by the likes of Left 4 Dead and Rock Band in order to provide the visuals and sounds necessary to bring its interstellar gameplay to PlayStation 4 this summer.
Nidhogg is a side-scrolling fighting game where players fight with pixelated swords in a minimalist environment. Watch as this retro-looking game of fencing gets brought soon to PS4.
Strategy and action collide in the form of Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-a-Fide Edition. Skulls of the Shogun is a turn-based, tactical game that stars undead samurai. That's right, zombie samurais are coming to PlayStation 4 (unfortunately it's not Onimusha).
Similar to its PS3 and PS Vita ports, Spelunky is being optimized on the PS4 with 1080p. Luckily, Spelunky will be a part of cross buy, so if you previously purchased the PS3 or PS Vita version, you get to download the game on the other two PlayStation consoles for free.
The last of this group of indie titles is Starwhal: Just the Tip. You must navigate your tusked narwhal to pierce your opponent's heart while preventing the opposing one from stabbing yours. You must wiggle and shake your massive, aquatic creature in order to keep it alive while stabbing its opponent when Starwhal comes out for PS4 and PS3.
