If it wasnâ€™t for PokÃ©mon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX on Switch the pickings would be rather slim this week, leaving just a few bits and pieces to talk about.
Primarily, the Final Fantasy VII Remake demo â€“ which arrived on PSN today, clocking in at 7.6GB â€“ and The Division 2: Warlords of New York DLC, which takes players back to Manhattan. If youâ€™re wondering why The Division 2 is dirt cheap currently itâ€™s because Ubisoft really, really, wants players to pick up this new premium-price add-on.
PokÃ©mon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX meanwhile is a remake of the 2005 GBA/DS original, once again developed by RPG outfit Spike Chunsoft. In this mission-based dungeon crawler you play as one of 16 PokÃ©mon, determined by a personality test at the beginning of the adventure. It seems weâ€™re in for a few â€˜quality of lifeâ€™ upgrades, including an auto-save feature. Mega Evolutions are promised, too. Expect reviews to surface before the week is out.
Things are slightly busier in the US, with both the RPG/beatâ€™em up hybrid Granblue Fantasy: Versus and the Kickstarter-funded hero shooter HolfraineÂ due on PS4. Granblue Fantasy Versus isnâ€™t set to grace our shores until 27th March, while Holfraine doesnâ€™t appear to have a UK release date. Weâ€™ve added a trailer below, though, just in case it magically turns up.
On Xbox One we can expect just four new releases, all of which are also heading to PS4 – Amoeba Battle, Baron: Fur Is Gonna Fly, Syrup and the Ultimate Sweet, and 60 Seconds!
Then on PS4 thereâ€™s the well-received retro-inspired 2D action RPG CrossCode, horror adventure Pathologic 2, and Sometimes Youâ€™s short story Breeder Homegrown: Directorâ€™s Cut. If youâ€™re up for bagging some doubtlessly easy trophies while on the move, that last one is also out on PS Vita.
