It's such a popular genre in gaming right now, so let's rank the best PS4 metroidvania games that are currently available on the platform.

One of the more popular PlayStation 4 games about platforming through one interconnected map is Axiom Verge. Released in early 2015, this lover letter to the classic Metroid was impressively created by just one man. If you've never played Guacamelee!, it's a must-play metroidvania game for any PlayStation 4 owner. Other options include Dust: An Elysian Tail, Song of the Deep, and the brand new Dead Cells.

Not every metroidvania game on this list is a PS4 original - take Shadow Complex for example, which came out in 2009. However, all these metroidvania games are currently available on the PlayStation Store, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite metroidvania game for PlayStation 4, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
