When the sun begins to set on this generation, The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt and Overwatch will no doubt be referred to as two of the best games this current crop of consoles had to offer.

Both head to Switch this week, and while there are some expected visual shortcomings, both allegedly perform surprisingly well – the hybrid handheld is punching way above its weight on both accounts.

Speaking of weight, Ring Fit Adventure also launches this week – a colourful exercise package, bundled with a new circular add-on. It’s the Switch’s answer to Kinect Adventures Wii Fit, pretty much.

It’s a bit of an odd week, all told. EA are slipping out Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville with almost zero fanfare or celebration. Word has it that it treads a lot of old ground, perhaps explaining why it isn’t full price. The mega publisher also gives Apex Legends the retail treatment, with the £17.99 Apex Legends Lifeline/Bloodhound Edition including new skins and 1k Apex Coins.

Then we have a bunch of re-releases and ‘complete editions’ including Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes – Complete Edition (PS4), Digimonstory Cybersleuth Complete Edition (Switch), Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition, and Planescape: Torment & Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition (both multi-format). We’ve rounded-up the first reviews of Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition below.

A couple of limp looking license games have shown up, too – Ice Age: Scrat’s Nutty Adventure and the utterly generic-looking (yet almost full price ) Zombieland: Double Tap – Road Trip head to all three formats.

Elsewhere, the PC indie hit Return of the Obra Dinn sails onto Xbox One, Switch and PS4. It’s a game more than seaworthy. That’s joined by the family-focused dungeon crawler Children of Morta, THQ Nordic’s Chinese action fantasy Monkey King: Hero is Back, aquarium management sim Megaquarium, and the comical puzzle adventure Felix the Reaper.

You’ll find trailers for all these below, along with the alluring Stranded Sails: Explorers of the Cursed Islands.

New release showcase

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition

9/10 – Nintendo Life: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt remains a masterpiece, and being able to take such a grand and engrossing adventure on the go is something well worth celebrating. The Switch’s Complete Edition is a truly impressive achievement, and although performance isn’t perfect, it’s still an incredible and impactful role-playing experience. The Witcher 3 set the bar for modern RPGs back in 2015, and this port is a startling reminder that it has yet to be bettered.

9/10 – The Metro: The Switch is clearly not the game’s natural home and yet even with the graphical downgrade The Witcher 3’s innate quality shines through.

9.0 – God is a Geek: If you’ve never played The Witcher 3, you should try to play on Xbox or PC, but if you want to get up close and personal, this is a fantastic version of a truly brilliant game.

8.0 – IGN: The (S)Witcher 3 is an ambitious port of one of the best games of the generation, albeit with some notable concessions.

Children of Morta

8.5 – PSU: Children of Morta is a handsomely crafted dungeon crawling effort with a stirring narrative that freshens things up on account of its familial theme and structure. The gorgeous presentation and resolutely solid hack and slash beats are supported by some surprising mechanics and flourishes that help to ensure that Children of Morta is one of the most pleasant surprises of the year.

7.0 – DualShockers:  The way it interweaves the familial unit throughout the story and the game’s mechanics is an awesome touch. In motion, the game is absolutely gorgeous. That said, I think there are better roguelikes in which to sink your teeth. The Bergsons were a great family to visit, but much like a crazy aunt, I wouldn’t want to live with them forever.

Baldur’s Gate I & II Enhanced Edition

8.5 – God is a Geek: The Baldur’s Gate 1 & 2 Enhanced Edition bundle is a great opportunity for anyone who missed these classics to see what all the fuss is about.

8/10 – Nintendo Life: Once you get to grips with some of their more antiquated ways you’ll be handsomely rewarded with some of the deepest combat, best writing, voice-acting and characters you’re likely to find in the genre.
