May 2, 2012 // 2:47 pm - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN Game Store content updates today, as follows:

Gran Turismo fans, start your engines! Back again for 2012, we're happy to release the new Gran Turismo Academy (released Tuesday 1st May). Take on your friends and GT fans across Europe for your chance to train as a real-life racer.

Featuring new challenges released over regular intervals, the Top 16 drivers at the end of the final round will go on to compete in the individual National Finals events, with the best then selected for Race Camp at Silverstone - where they will drive a real Nissan sports car.

Skullgirls, an all-new 2D beat 'em up from Konami, is finally here to add even more spice to the fighting game community. Created with tournament-level play in mind, Skullgirls is a fresh new game giving the player a colourful cast of characters with some zany gameplay!

Frobisher Says! A new free app that'll make your head spin. Filled with crazy mini-games utilising the many features of the Vita system, take on Frobisher's challenges on your own or pass around your Vita with 8 people to see who can get the highest score. Mini games include poking dogs using the touch screen or searching for a bird with the Vita's motion sensors combined with camera. A truly bizarre game!

We've also reduced more titles in delight of our recent announcement of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Check out the Royale Contenders Sale for what's on offer.

And for PS Plus members, you have the likes of the PS2 Classic Max Payne, Awesomenauts, Hamsterball, Sky Fighter, Smash Cars and more at no cost! You'll also find Zack Zero at 50% off, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood at 30% off and of course, more! Please refer back to Mr.Ross McGrath's Plus post right here.

Lastly, keep an eye out on Friday, as Vita owners may see a little bit of Mortal Kombat suddenly appear...
