A miniature PlayStation console will release this December from Sony with a number of high profile classic titles built-in to the system.

Dead Cells is a rogue-like Metroid-vania style game developed by the studio Motion-Twin. So this game features procedurally generated areas which is something new to the genre of Metroid-vania since it’s usually all about remembering the layout of the map, finding secrets in it, and back tracking to older areas to unlock newer areas. Dead Cells throws all of that on its head with making everything well randomized. Survive long enough and you can play it like Metroid, but die and it’s time to start over. Sure, some of the areas are pre-designed, but they are constantly randomized, so you will never know where to go next whenever a new life begins.

Titan Quest is a remaster of the 2006 PC title from the heydays of THQ, brought back from the dead by THQ Nordic (formerly Nordic Games).
