New Game Releases: November 23rd-29th, 2017

With PlayStation VR systems discounted for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, it’s great to see new titles for the platform. This week’s Sony virtual reality peripheral gets two new games, Radial-G and VR Karts, ushering in double dose of racing thrills. But once again, it’s the Nintendo Switch with the mightiest lineup of high-profile titles, with a pair of Resident Evil: Revelations games, Worms, and re-releases of Mario + Ribbids Kingdom Battle and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to tantalize new owners of the hybrid system.

Robert’s Pick: While there’s a few tempting titles this week, I’d advise Switch owning role-playing fans to squirrel away any money for next week’s release of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. In its prime, the mighty PS Vita gave gamers quite a few exemplary role-playing experiences, with titles like Persona 4 Golden, Tales of Hearts R, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. The release of Chronicles 2 is poised to up the stakes, offering an accessible, open-world adventure that earned praise when it was shown as Gamescom last August. I know I’ll be taking the day off to bask in the sequel, with power banks ready to marathon Monolith Soft’s latest.

  1. I’m surprised that there are still Wii U games coming out. Good on Nintendo for not just dropping the system.

  2. Could Sony think of a more generic title than “VR Karts”?

    It sounds like an indie Steam game that seeks for $1.99

  3. Aces of the Luftwaffe – Squadron is a shmup where you shoot nazis. Desert, you need to review it please

  4. Happy Black Friday aka the beginning of weak ass new releases for a few months.

  5. I could have sworn that Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney came out YEARS ago. I have a physical copy somewhere.

  6. A week full of hot garbage.

  7. Portal Knights is about $12 on other systems. Damn Switch tax.

  8. I’m seeing Explorer’s Edition for $39.99.

    I should have waited a few weeks.

  9. Cicadas review please. It’s been awhile since you reviewed a VN.
