PlayStation Plus Japan & Asia July Lineup Is A Bit Different


PlayStation Plus July lineup of free games was announced yesterday, but it is going to be a little different in certain territories like Japan and Asia. In all the regions covered by the premium service, it is still offering only two titles, but one of them is not the same as for Europe and North America.

As shared by Sony, the Japanese lineup features Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, which is the headline in all the different territories as we’ll see, and The Caligula Effect: Overdose. Overdose is a re-release of the original game that was launched in March 2019, so it’s pretty recent and more appealing to consumers over there.

“Mobius. An idyllic world that exists for the sake of letting people forget about the pain and problems of reality,” says the official description of the game. “In this world created by a sentient Vocaloid program, μ (Mu), reality and fantasy have become blurred, allowing people to relive their high school years in bliss. In this seemingly beautiful and perfect world, something is amiss.

“Escape from this false paradise with your fellow students and return to reality in The Caligula Effect: Overdose!”

On top of that, there’s one more difference between Japan and Asia, as Asian players outside of the Japanese territory won’t get Overdose but Aegis Defenders, instead. It’s been released in 2018 and features co-op platforming gameplay mixed to the tower defense genre.

So, are you happy with the choices in the Western territories, or Japan and Asia players have received a better treatment? Let us know in the comments below.
