Two excellent ninja games in one week, sweet! But that’s just about the only similarity between these two titles.

FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice launches on Friday. Their newest journey is a departure from the Souls-like formula, promising a faster-paced experience than fans have come to expect from the studio — where even your own death can be weaponized.

Meanwhile, Québec-based studio Sabotage is releasing their acclaimed throwback sidescroller The Messenger on PS4 Tuesday, with its sharp, witty writing and tight platforming gameplay in tow. There’s more to this one than you might think…

For a full list of new games coming to PlayStation next week, read on. And enjoy The Drop!
