Japan has a rich gaming heritage and given the amazing response we had to PlayStation Store’s recent Big in Japan Sale we thought we’d keep the good times rolling here on PlayStation Now. Next week it’s Mountain Day in Japan, the country’s newest national holiday – so we’ve duly obliged with a mountain of PS4 and PS3 games from the Asian powerhouse.
This week we’ve got Sultan in the house, sampling life at PlayStation HQ on a work experience placement. He just so happens to be a connoisseur of Japanese games, so we thought we’d let him recommend a few of his favourites from the list. Take it away Sultan:
1. Gravity Rush Remastered
Kick-starting the list, Gravity Rush brings a truly amazing storyline to the table which always leaves you wanting more. Filled with enticing RPG and platformer elements, this game is definitely a must-have.
2. Croixleur Sigma
