Shovel Knight was one of the best games of 2014 and a killer app for the Wii U; featuring tight control, an absolutely perfect difficulty curve, a great sense of humor, and a healthy dose of nostalgia, too. The NES-inspired classic was initially a Nintendo exclusive before finding its way to PC and Mac, but April 21st is the day some fans of been waiting for.

Starting tomorrow Shovel Knight will be available on the PS3, PS4, and Vita for 20 dollars, and will feature an exclusive boss battle with Kratos of God of War fame. Free DLC, entitled ‘Plague of Shadows’ is also coming to the game sometime later this year, for all versions, and absolutely free of charge.

Shovel Knight won numerous GOTY awards and has been critically acclaimed for mixing Super Mario 3, Zelda 2, Mega Man, and Duck Tales gameplay tropes in one cohesive package that is arguably better than those games. Yes, better. More finely tuned, more in line with modern day sensibilities (like a save system), and with a storyline that’s actually touching.  It’s also one of the first major Kickstarter successes. A release for Xbox One is planned sometime this year as well.

Much like Mega Man 9, or Retro City Rampage, Shovel Knight is great at taking what came before, saving the special parts, and tossing out most of the annoyances of the era. I’m not one to get down to chiptune music, but the compositions here are stellar, and the ‘Propeller Knight’ stage’s diddy is worth the price of admission alone.

Immersing oneself in realistic worlds using the impressive capabilities of Sony’s PSVR2 headset is undeniably fantastic. However, there are instances where stylized visuals can prove to be more effective. Sushi Ben seems to have a good grasp on the concept of delivering a manga-inspired world, which will be available starting on May 28th. This lively release from Big Brane offers a delightful collection of mini-games, allowing players to immerse themselves in the charming atmosphere of a coastal town.

In order to prevent the local sushi bar from going out of business, you’ll have to lend a hand to the local townsfolk and engage in a range of activities to boost trade. As one would anticipate, fishing is the main focus as you embark on angling adventures to catch various types of fish in order to satisfy your customers’ desires.

And that’s not all! There is a wide array of activities to immerse yourself in, such as table tennis, bug-catching, dog walking, archery, and more. Each of these experiences fully utilizes the innovative motion-controlled gameplay that is exclusive to PSVR2. The manga art style in this game is truly impressive, featuring dynamic pop-up comic book panels and other visually stunning elements.
