PlayStation Plus games February: Little Big Planet 3 and Not a Hero
Cute plush toys or endless bloodshed? Take your pick.
The free game lineup for PlayStation Plus members in February 2017 has been announced. Last month's stellar roster of three top-notch games is a hard act to follow, but PlayStation rarely disappoints when it comes to serving its loyal subscribers a dish of tasty free games.
Note: To access the PlayStation Plus Monthly Games you will need an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
This month, PS4 owners can get their hands on Sony's wholesome platformer Little Big Planet 3 and Roll7's violent side-scrolling shooter Not a Hero.
Little Big Planet 3 is somewhat of a staple for Australian families. Not only does it offer timeless platforming fun with collectables aplenty, but the series was also developed by Qantas' Australian Woman of the Year, Siobhan Reddy.
Not a Hero is a wildly different game to Little Big Planet 3, but still just as fun. This side-scrolling cover-based shooter tells the story of an anthropomorphic rabbit, BunnyLord. BunnyLord is a time traveller from the future who has arrived in the present day to assume the role of mayor and save the world from certain destruction. To prove his worth, BunnyLords recruits a gang of anti-heroes to clean up crime by any means necessary. This is a story that's only slightly more absurd than the real world in 2017.
PS3 owners can pick up the weirdly sexual Starwhal, a game about jousting narwhals in space(?) and the sawmill-based psychological horror Anna: Extended Edition.
On the handheld side of the fence, Vita owners can score retro platformer Ninja Senki DX and TorqueL.
