New Video Game Releases for the Week of 6-11-17

It’s not surprising to see this week lacking in new game releases. With E3’s momentum of anticipation in full swing, there’s not a lot of games brave enough to attempt stealing the spotlight. Well, there’s one: ARMS comes out on the Switch this Friday, the day after E3 ends. Expect to see some new information pour out from Nintendo at the show this week—you can keep an eye on us here at EB for that.

Otherwise, virtual reality is actually getting a few games of interest. While nothing seems groundbreaking, Psychonauts in The Rhombus of Ruin drops this Tuesday for PSVR. Judging from a quick YouTube search it seems like it’s a little over an hour’s worth of gameplay, but it warrants a look if you’re a Psychonauts fan (and a PSVR owner thirsty for new games/”experiences”). Child of the Wind may be a noteworthy addition to the PC owner’s VR library; the navigation mechanic and setting together are enough to intrigue.

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