New Video Game Releases for the Week of 8-26-18

Between Shenmue‘s recent re-release on modern platforms and Yakuza‘s masterful riding of the popularity wave, there is no shortage of fully rebuilt adventure classics to play these days. Yakuza Kiwami 2 brings the original sequel from 2006 to PS4 this week, but it’s far from the only game worth attention. September’s arrival may be near, but there are still a few new games to check out before Spiderman‘s shadow overtakes all.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate comes to the Switch on Tuesday, bringing an entirely fresh absurdity to the series’ newly successful foundation with World. If you missed the boat then — and would like to continue missing that boat — give Annapurna’s Donut County a look. If you just can’t wait to essentially control a living hole in the ground, you can check it out on Android right now — just don’t be fooled by the similarly named clone up on the shop.

Switch owners get The Videokid this week, and it seems to channel the same energy as old school Paperboy games. Looking for a little more speed? Freedom Planet looks like one of the few games able to replicate Sonic‘s fast-paced world traversal, with a healthy mix of platforming mechanics to boot. Me, personally? Let me tell you just how excited I am for Divinity: Original Sin 2: Definitive Edition coming to PS4 and Xbox One. If you missed out on the RPG giant last year on PC, now’s the time to dive into it. Check out the trailer down below to better grasp the scope of the game.

Be careful reading Friday’s releases: the end of the month tends to be a placeholder date for a lot of new games, so take the day with a grain of salt. 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.
