As predicted, crazy blast-'em-up Mercenary Kings will be blitzing its way onto the PlayStation 4 courtesy of April's PlayStation Plus update.

Along with the bullet bonanza, you lucky North Americans can expect to be swooping around Gotham as the caped crusader in Batman: Arkham City on PS3, along with copies of Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark, and Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse thrown in for good measure. As if that wasn't enough, PS Vitas in the land of the free will be nabbing Velocity Ultra and Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD.

Across the pond meanwhile, Europe's offering perhaps isn't quite as robust. Replacing Batman's action-packed romp is Pro Evolution Soccer 2014, but the inclusion of the cross-buy capable Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time seems like a steal. European users will also be getting bloody with Hotline Miami, which will arrive alongside MotoGP 13 on Vita. It certainly looks like that rumoured line up was right after all.
