A weird and wonderful assortment of new games lies before us this week, with plenty to tempt. A good reminder of how vast the gaming spectrum has become nowadays, we’d say.

Roll up, roll up, and witness KeyWe– a co-op adventure where two kiwis are tasked with keeping a mailroom ticking over – the surprisingly lavish-looking top-down shooter Clid the Snail, cutesy farming/crafting RPG Kitaria Fables, short psychological puzzler Alveole, and Ruster – a comical crime caper set in Medieval times, promising a bunch of daft missions to complete.

Then on the slightly more serious side, there’s the multiformat arcade-style brawler Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions, cel-shaded shooter sequel RICO London, and the ‘90s set comic-book-style adventure The Big Con.

Lake, meanwhile, takes us back to 1986 for a relaxed adventure in a sleepy town.

The PS5 also gets Timothy’s Night – a noir open-world shooter with platform elements – and a belated release of the paranormal horror The Medium. The Switch’s Crown Trick also makes the jump to PS4 and Xbox One, being a turn-based roguelike from Team17.

Collectors of physical Switch games might be interested in Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 1 and NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol 1, too.
