Julyâ€™s big-name releases are spread thinly, with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD and F1 2021 Deluxe Edition due next week and then a lull until the likes of Cris Tales, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Samurai Warriors 5 arrive at the end of the month.
This week is quite Switch centric â€“ Nintendoâ€™s platform gains Capcomâ€™s swish RPG spin-off Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, plus belated conversions of the JRPG Ys IX: Monstrum Nox and SUDA51â€™s crime noir tale The Silver Case 2425.
A Plague Tale: Innocence â€“ a former GOTY for many â€“ receives a next-gen spruce up, arriving as a PS Plus freebie on PS5. Switch owners aren’t being left out either – a cloud version is due on the eShop at the end of the week.
Watch Dogs: Legion gains its new Bloodline DLC, meanwhile. The trailer’s below.
Then thereâ€™s the online stunt racer Crash Drive 3, the whimsical photography adventure Beasts of Maravilla Island, a PSVR iteration of Sniper Elite, and Indigo 7: Quest for Love â€“ a colourful puzzle game for up to four players. â€œWear your swimsuit, dust off your beach tennis rackets, and put batteries in your old radio to enjoy this cool puzzle game,â€ reads the blurb.
