New Game Releases: December 7th-13th, 2017

One year ago, many were uncertain if the Nintendo Switch would be successful- especially after the middling sales for the Wii U. But now, the hybrid might be the hottest device around, ushering in a plethora of titles for the system. Fortunately, there are plenty of other remarkable titles for owners of other hardware, from high definition remasters of Ōkami and Tokyo Xanadu to a tag-team fighter based on the Umineko When They Cry franchise.

Robert’s Pick: Last July, Tokyo Xanadu was released on Vita, bringing another great Falcom action-role-playing game to Sony’s portable. This week, Tokyo Xanadu eX+ arrived on PS4 and PC, applying an ample amount of sheen. From sharpening all the environmental details to Morimiya City to endowing the game with a rock solid, sixty frame-per-second framerate, the reissue delivers the expected visual upgrade. But just as importantly, the game offers plenty of other amendments, from a fleshed-out storyline to new post-game content. While I can vouch for the PlayStation 4 iteration, the PC version seems to be in good hands, with Ghostlight at the helm.

  1. After the Jax and Daxter crap port, I’m going to wait and see how Okami turns out.

  2. Wow, there’s a ton of Switch games coming out. \

    and poor Xbox One….

  3. Red Game Without a Great Name sounds like hipster trash hoping to cash in on the Switch craze.

  4. Nothing for me for the rest of 2017.

  5. So, Tokyo Xanadu eX+ review this week?

  6. Night in the Woods: Weird Autumn Edition might be the rapiest title for a game ever.
