Sony recently added the PlayStation 4 firmware update 8.00 for Playstation 4 users; alongside a number of different changes to the party system, updated parental controls, messaging and the ability to mute all microphones in the Quick Menu is one markedly amusing new addition — a multitude of brand-new, free of charge avatars.

A total of 71 avatars, which include profile pictures from games such as The Last of Us: Part II, The Last of Us Remastered, God of War, Ghost of Tsushima, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Bloodborne, Jak and Dexter and Ratchet & Clank have been added to the profile customization menu.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
