One addition that’s guaranteed to get trophies though is PSP stealth shooter Siphon Filter: Dark Mirror – because they’ve already been leaked. All you have to do to add Platinum to your collection is play the campaign to completion, and we highly recommend you do: even though the controls are pretty dated, this is protagonist Gabe Logan at his most engaging.
Which leaves us with the final retro release for March 2023: Ape Academy 2. This PSP game has special significance because it has never been released in North America before, marking the first opportunity for fans in the US to play. Essentially, this is a collectible card battler with WarioWare-style microgames – a truly unique change of pace for the platformer.
All in all, we think this is a pretty good selection. There’s enough variety to accommodate a spectrum of tastes, and it’s pretty neat that Ape Academy 2 is finally getting a North American release. We really hope that Sony can continue this kind of cadence, because it’s clear that fans really enjoy revisiting these older titles with PS Plus Premium.
