Out this week: Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series, Arcadegeddon, MADiSON, Matchpoint, Zero Tolerance Collection, more

If you’re wondering why we haven’t covered AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES Nirvana Initiative, it’s because the Euro console release is trailing behind the rest of the world.

American gamers received Spike Chunsoft’s visual novel murder mystery late last month, and critical reviews were full of praise for its investigation scenes, twist-filled plot, and colourful characters. Xbox owners won’t be missing out on this one either – it’s due on all formats this Friday.

A couple of other acclaimed Japanese games are also upon us this week. Yurukill: The Calumniation Games combines escape room puzzle solving with a bullet hell shooter, with developer G.Rev providing the former part. Bandai Namco’s anticipated Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series offers remasters of the PlayStation platformers Klonoa: Door to Phantomile and Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil, meanwhile. The future of the franchise apparently hangs on how well this package sells.  

Arcadegeddon also hits all formats, arriving as a PS Plus title. It’s a hyperactive co-op multiplayer shooter in which an arcade owner attempts to fight off a virus. Xbox Game Pass secures a new release too, in the form of Matchpoint: Tennis Championships.

Other new releases include the first-person psychological horror MADiSON – based around an instant camera that connects the living with the dead – Mega Drive first-person shooter compilation Zero Tolerance Collection, and the heavy metal short story Of Bird and Cage.

Rolling back to last week quickly, retro shooters SOL DIVIDE and STRIKERS 1945 quietly arrived on both PS4 and Xbox One, with the PS4 additionally receiving DRAGON BLAZE. Expect to pay £7-£8 – a small price compared to the going rate for the PS2 versions nowadays.
