Sportsfriends, a compilation of four local multiplayer games, will release on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on May 6, Sony has announced.

Sportsfriends will cost $15, and buying the PS3 version will also entitle you to a free download of the PS4 version if you want to upgrade later. Developer Die Gute Fabrik said the game will release on Steam “some weeks after” its launch on PlayStation.

The package includes BaraBariBall, a retro-styled fighting game, Super Pole Riders, a QWOP-like pole vault dueling game, Hokra, a minimalist sports game, and Johann Sebastian Joust, in which you’re asked to physically jostle your opponents’ controller while protecting your own.

Johann Sebastian Joust is usually demoed with Move controllers, but it will also work with the DualShock 3 and DualShock 4. On the PS4, it will also make special use of the DualShock 4’s speaker and LED, but will only support up to four players. On the PS3 you can play with up to seven players and load your own music files into the game.

Sportsfriends was a Kickstarter project that was successfully funded with $150,000 back in 2012.
