North American PS Store update; April 30, 2013

  • Posted April 30th, 2013 at 17:38 EDT by Kyle Prahl

This week's North American PlayStation Store isn't short on new games, which should please content-starved PS Vita and that rare soul looking forward to the Director's Cut of Deadly Premonition. At least this week's update isn't coming a day late!

Elsewhere, PlayStation Plus members are getting a free copy of the newly released Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge, an RTS-MOBA hybrid that we enjoyed in our review. A dizzying array of discounts on games and franchises represented in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale benefits regular users and Plus subscribers alike. A whole host of White Knight Chronicles 2 DLC is also free, and backs up more new add-ons than you can shake a Move wand at.

After you've had a gander at the list below, sound off in the comments with your thoughts on this week's update. What will you be downloading first?
