PlayStation Plus got off to a slow start in Japan. Game still trickle in at a much slower rate, but there are quality titles like Virtue’s Last Reward, Time Travelers, The Little Battlers Boost, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky available to download.
Oh, and there are these five Vita games exclusive to PlayStation Plus from student game developers and Grasshopper Manufacture. ELEDiVE shown above is a sliding puzzle game that takes place inside a computer world. You have to fix bugs by using both touch panels and tilt controls to move pieces in the world.
UniUni Union ("Uni" is sea urchin in Japanese) is a novel puzzle game that utilizes the front and rear touch panels. You play as UniUni, a sea urchin that stretches its arms to grab stuff and pull levers.
Mou, Sou Suru Shikanai! is a multitouch game where you place two fingers on the screen to make a path for ants to crawl on.
Volt is a beam puzzle game where you move a generator around and fire it through different objects so the beam hits a target.You can use mirrors to change the angle, which kind of reminds of the light puzzles in Shadows of the Damned.
Octalide is an escape game where you use the front and rear touch panels to turn objects.
These games will be available until May 14, so if you want to try them out make sure you sign up for PlayStation Plus with a Japan region account before then.
