New Video Game Releases for the Week of 10-1-17

Xbox One owners get another bone thrown their way this week. Forza 7 comes out on Tuesday, so if you missed getting your hands on the game during its early access period, your wait is over. Forza 7 isn’t alone, though.

Tuesday brings most of the notable releases this week, but that’s not saying much given that most of the week’s new games are ports of older games to newer consoles. Battle Chasers: Nightwar is the most standout release aside from Forza 7 and provides a modernized, old-school JRPG experience as a stark contrast to Forza‘s racing simulation. Telltale drops two new entries on Tuesday, too—one for Batman and the other for Minecraft: Story Mode (for those still rocking an Xbox 360, at least). If you’re starting to look at getting an Xbox One—especially after Forza‘s release this week and Cuphead‘s recent arrival—the Xbox One S (1TB) Minecraft Edition will be available on Tuesday.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a great little multiplayer game that feels like it’d go perfectly on the Switch, which is great since that’s exactly where it’s heading this week alongside ports of Axiom Verge and Oxenfree. Nintendo fans honestly get the most this week as 3DS is getting some love, too. Layton’s Mystery Journey and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions both drop on Friday, so it may be time to finally wipe the dust off of my 3DS that’s accumulated since the Switch’s arrival.

As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.

Zach’s eternal preoccupation with video games became cemented at an early age. His first memorable journey away from reality began with a text-based Football game on a dirty Apple II; he’s chased fantasy ever since. Having took English classes as electives in college, Zach decided to pull the trigger on a merger between the two obsessions.
