Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

We will update this throughout the day when new announcements become available. Read more for details ...

Atomic Ninjas (PSV/PS3)

In Atomic Ninjas, you control super-powered ninjas in frantic online matches against other players. You can't directly kill other players, so you must outsmart and outflank your opponents and kill them with environmental hazards and obstacles, such as falling crates, laser beams, lava pits, moving platforms, traps, etc.

In each of the seven arenas, there are air vents, crates, hiding spots, levers, lifts, ninja-launchers, pick-ups, and traps. The most malicious players will be the most successful. Split-screen multiplayer matches and single-player offline matches against bots are also supported.

The game supports cross-buy, so buying the PS3 version grants the owner a free download of the PS Vita version, and vice versa.
