At the same time the PlayStation Plus games were leaked for November 2021, two games were also leaked for this month’s PlayStation Now lineup. According to Dealabs user Billbil-kun, those games were Mafia: Definitive Edition and Celeste. According to the official list released by Sony, that leak was also correct. Joining those two titles arriving on PlayStation Now tomorrow are Final Fantasy IX and Totally Reliable Delivery Service.
Mafia: Definitive Edition is a PS4 remaster of the original PlayStation 2 game. This time there is an expanded story and tweaked gameplay to go with the expected visual improvements. However, those wanting an experience close to the original game can do so with Classic Mode. Set in a fictional US City called Lost Heaven in the 1930s, the game follows taxi driver Tommy Angelo who finds himself caught up in a mafia dispute after driving two members of the Salieri family to safety after an ambush. After the Morello family then destroys his cab, he joins the Salieri family for a new career.
Final Fantasy IX is the third of five Final Fantasy games to join PlayStation Now. Zidane Tribal and the Tantalus Theater Troupe kidnap the heir of Alexandria, Princess Garnet Til Alexandros XVII, only to find they’ve unwittingly helped her to escape the castle. The Princess and her personal guard, Steiner, join the troupe as they aim to take down her mother, Queen Brahne of Alexandria, who started the war of the nations in Gaia.
Celeste is a hardcore platformer where players help Madeline conquer her inner demons and reach the top of the Celeste Mountain. The controls are simple but the game’s more than 700 screens of challenges and secrets are far more difficult. Finally, Totally Reliable Delivery Service is a chaotic ragdoll platformer where player can team up with friends to deliver goods despite being part of a fairly disastrous courier company.
All of the games will be available in PlayStation Now from tomorrow, November 2. All but one seem to be permanent additions to the service, the exception being Mafia: Definitive Edition that is only available on PlayStation Now until February 28, 2022. However, bear in mind some games will also be leaving the service tomorrow. NieR: Automata, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Streets of Rage 4 are all due to be removed on November 2.
