New Video Game Releases for the Week of 9-2-18

Happen to notice a tingling feeling lately? Perhaps one that creeps up your spine and into your skull, granting extraordinary alertness and perception of your surroundings? It’s probably because of this Friday: Spider-Man officially drops on PS4.

If you haven’t felt the sting of excitement from Spidey, never fear! Some…game is here to sweep you (hopefully) off your feet. Many ports land on various platforms this week: Hyper Light Drifter comes to the Switch, the remastered Zone of the Enders: The Second Runner lands on PC and PS4 with 4K visuals and virtual reality support, and Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age brings the award-winning Japanese RPG to the West. Paratopic isn’t a port of a PS1 game, but it’s convincing enough to pass as one. I say that in high regard — the retro throwback is captivating.

On the other side of the new game release spectrum, there’s a healthy pool of wonderfully surreal-looking experiences to be had this week. Planet Alpha creates a wonder dioramic presentation for its story, while Another Sight takes a similar approach but adds cats — not a bad thing. Need something a little weirder? Unknown Fate tackles the hallucinatory from the first-person perspective. If you wanna go even further, The Inner Friend looks absolutely intriguing in a way beyond words.

Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps and White Dog Squad both come to the 3DS as individual releases if you’re looking for something a little more grounded, but even the endearing yo-kai can get weird from time to time.

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