Hobbitses, giant boulders and a couple of classics will be making their way to the PlayStation Network this week, making for a rather eclectic mix following the unusually heavy downpour of new titles to cap off the winter release season.

In this week’s new games announcement, PlayStation Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements explains that there’s “a place for both fantasy and sci-fi nerds this week” on the PlayStation Network as the updated version of Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut makes its way to the PlayStation 4 while LEGO The Hobbit arrives on the full Sony family of consoles including the PS3, PS4 and Vita.

Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut on PS4 propels gamers into heart-racing battles through space,” Clements explains. “Participate in an interstellar war and save Earth from destruction using the awe-inspiring Strike suit—a powerful ship that can transform into a suit of armor.”

Let me just break that down for ya: You’re flying a badical mech, dude.

A reboot of a classic shooter, SSZ:DC features 17 story missions of dogfighting action in space, as well as multiple Strike Suits to pilot and customizable weapons.

If you prefer your games to be a little more down to (Middle)Earth, then perhaps you’d be interested in LEGO The Hobbit instead? You probably know what to expect out of the LEGO line of games by now, meaning PS3, PS4 and Vita owners can look forward to a huge cast of playable characters, fun missions, clever humor, buckets of charm and enemies that explode in a glorious pile of plastic coins.

“Experience the first two feature films in a whole new way, with iconic characters rendered as lovable LEGO characters,” Clements said. “Guide Bilbo, Gandalf and the Dwarves through familiar locations in an effort to reach the Misty Mountains. Forge new items, mine for gems and take incredible loot from enemies.”

Also arriving on the PS4 this week is King Oddball, which is a cross-buy title with the PS Vita version of the game that is currently available. Your basic goal here is to destroy your opposition using carefully flung boulders in a game that offers 120 levels for players to roll through.

Finally, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 will arrive on the PlayStation 3 as a PS2 Classic this week, bringing the beloved spirit-taming RPG to the console for the first time in digital form.
