Suda 51's papercraft platformer Black Knight Sword hits PSN today

As does GTA: San Andreas and Castlevania: SotN, only five years after NA.

No More Heroes and Killer 7 developer Grasshopper Manufacture, lead by eccentric designer Suda 51, has brought its latest 2D action platformer Black Knight Sword to PSN today. Its peculiar puppet theater aesthetic and haunting score by Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka are certainly eye and ear catching. It costs £7.99/€9.99.

Today's newly added retro games include Grant Theft Auto: San Andreas for £11.99/€14.99, the Spyro the Dragon trilogy for £7.99/€9.99 (or each game can be purchased separately for £3.99/€4.99), Umjammer Lammy for £3.99/€4.99, and for £7.99/€9.99 you can grab the belated Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, which arrived on XBLA and the US PSN five years ago.

Other PS3 additions include Big Sky: Infinity (£7.99/€9.99), Demolition Inc. (£7.99/€9.99), Mensa Academy (£6.49/€7.99), Batman: Arkham Asylum (£15.99/€19.99), and a demo for Fuel Overdose.

On the Vita front there's: Big Sky: Infinity (£7.99/€9.99) and Uncharted: Fight For Fortune - Complete Edition (£7.29/€8.99).

PlayStation Plus subscribers get Big Sky: Infinity free on either platforms, as well as 20 per cent off Arkham City DLC and free themes for Jet Set Radio, Spectral Dawn, and Bertie B-Boy.

There's also some tiny DLCs for Dead or Alive 5, Rock Band 3, Rocksmith and Uncharted: Fight For Fortune. Get the full round-up at the EU PlayStation blog.
