Incoming – May Plus

Welcome back to our feature where we aim to outline the new releases that that our readers might be interested in!

It’s another strong month for handheld devices, with the visually-striking action-RPG Soul Sacrifice kicking off things for the PlayStation Vita, out now. And the 3DS continues to get lots of love, too: charming roguelike-lite Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity will be here on the 17th of May, an enhanced port arrives in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on the 24th, and the wacky Dempa Men 2: Beyond the Waves hits at the end of the month.

If role-playing games and platformers aren’t your thing, there’s a number of first and third-person shooters to look out for as well. The most notable is probably Metro: Last Light, triumphantly due to arrive on the 17th of May, despite the collapse of former publisher THQ. Later in the month you can also expect Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, a stylish-looking return to the roots of the Juarez franchise. Finally, the survival-horror devotees among us (high-five!) have the HD-update of Resident Evil: Revelations to look forward to, available on the 24th of May.

For fans who were swept up by the recent re-release of Persona 4: Golden on the PlayStation Vita – and for fighting-game fanatics who’ve been patiently waiting since last year – Persona 4 Arena finally arrives here on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next week. Dan even has his arcade stick ready!

Speaking of Atlus’ Persona Team, their own dating-sim/puzzle hybrid Catherine is now available for free if you have a European PS+ subscription. This joins other titles like Hitman Absolution and Sine Mora to make a very solid May selection. And while things are quieter over in the NA region, American PS+ subscribers can look forward to a massive sale on full games, which includes almost every Metal Gear and God of War title out there!
