Over the past couple of weeks, we here at oprainfall have been doing a weekly article for the PSN update in North America. Not wanting our friends across the pond to be left out, we will be doing the same for the European PSN each week as well.

PSN in Europe this week is having a Knights and Witches sale. If you’re a fan of Action-RPGs or RPGs in general, you are in luck this week as there are some fantastic titles on sale.


First off we have Ni No Kuni, A collaboration between developer Level 5 and famous anime creator Studio Ghibli. Follow the story of Oliver as he journeys to a parallel world in hopes of saving his mother from death. This game features some of the best graphics to ever grace the PS3. Its unique real-time combat system is wonderful as well.


Next up, we have Rune Factory Oceans. Tag alog in an adventure with Aden and Sonja, two friends who were living peacefully on an island. But then one day, they become the victims of a strange curse that made them share the same body. You will harness the power of a giant golem to aid you in your quest. You will also have many other activities to keep you busy as well such as fishing, farming, cooking, and crafting.

ICO / Shadow of the Colossus HD collection: The remastered version of these PS2 classic brings upgraded features such as improved framerates and an HD Graphics upgrade, making them even more gorgeous. They added support for 3D TVs and 7.1 surround sound as well, making this the definitive versions of these titles.


Last but certainly not least, we have Demon Souls, an Action-RPG created as a spiritual successor to the famed King’s Field series. This is one the most challenging and fun titles I have played in years. Its depth in combat and robust world to explore made it a perfect choice for those looking for a challenge or whom enjoy a great Action-RPG in general.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
