Two new-ish games are coming to Sony’s consoles this week starting with, Young Horses’ octopus-pretending-to-be-a-man simulator Octodad: Dadliest Catch, which will be launching for PlayStation 4 on April 23 in Europe and April 22nd in North America, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog.
In Dadliest Catch, players control an octopus who has fooled the entire world (somehow) into thinking he’s human. Now, with a wife and two children to care for, as well as a suspicious chef on his tail, Octodad must keep up the ruse and navigate everyday tasks like pouring milk and mowing the lawn without giving away his identity.
Octodad launched for Windows PC back in January and has since been tweaked based on player feedback for the PS4 version. The latter third of the game, according the post by creative director Kevin Zuhn, has undergone “some radical changes” and includes new challenges like swabbing decks and “jig dancing” as well as new disguises for Octodad.
The PS4 version will also include PlayStation Move support for one or two players and the ability to play with PlayStation Move and a Nav controller. This version also include the local co-op mode present in the PC version.
Octodad: Dadliest Catch will be available for $14.99. PlayStation Plus users can snag the game at a 20 percent discount of $11.99 until April 29.
The second title to be announced is the second season of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead will arrive on PlayStation Vita Tuesday, April 22, the studio announced today.
So far, Telltale has released the first two episodes of Season 2, “All That Remains” and “A House Divided,” and both will debut simultaneously on Sony’s handheld. There’s no word yet on whether Episode 3, “In Harm’s Way,” and the two subsequent episodes will launch simultaneously on PS Vita with the other platforms.
Telltale previously said it planned to release the PS Vita version of Season 2 in late March. Season 1 launched on PS Vita in August.
