New Video Game Releases for the Week of 3-18-18

Where the hell did this week come from? Monday may not have much going on, but Tuesday and Friday are full of some pretty remarkable releases. Sea of Thieves, most notably, should breathe some life into the Xbox One’s very existence — just the Sea of Thieves-themed controller is enough to turn heads.

Attack on Titan 2 drops alongside Sea of Thieves on Tuesday while some previously released games get some tender lovin’ care. South Park: The Fractured But Whole introduces the town to a new narrative based on the Vamp Kids stealing Mysterion’s sister in the From Dusk till Casa Bonita DLC. Assassin’s Creed Rogue gets the remaster treatment, and Final Fantasy XV‘s main protagonist, Noctis Lucis Caelum, joins the fray in Tekken 7, as well. A handful of smaller, potential gems flesh out Tuesday and bleed into Friday, such as The Count Lucanor and ARK Park, but even with the solid week of releases it still feels like Friday comes out of nowhere.

A Way Out offers an incredibly adventurous take on a multiplayer action game on Friday, and the predominant mind behind it makes it all the more alluring. If you’re more inclined to play an RPG inspired by Studio Ghibli, Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom will be right up your alley. I loved the first game’s Pokemon-esque cath’em all aesthetic, so I’m excited to see the sequel finally make good on a release date.

Speaking of Pokemon, Detective Pikachu also comes out on Friday. I don’t know if anything will every jumpstart my curiosity like Pikachu speaking English in the vein of Danny DeVito, but hey, it’s nice to be surprised in this day and age. I just…can’t look away.

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