Out this week: Dakar Desert Rally, Overwatch 2, No Man’s Sky (Switch), Super Jagger Bomb, Medieval Dynasty, more

It’s a modest week for new releases, especially when compared to the last – which saw 22 new games on Xbox One alone. You could even say it’s the calm before next week’s new release storm.

Some of this week’s big hitters include Dakar Desert Rally – which promises four seasons, a day-night cycle, bellowing sandstorms, and online play – along with the free-to-play Overwatch 2, with three new heroes to master.

Overwatch 2 has been mocked and criticised since its reveal, with news breaking just days ago that newcomers will have to unlock the original cast. Not only this, but player accounts require a phone number – which ties in with machine learning that monitors toxic chatter.

The Switch gains two notable belated conversions too – No Man’s Sky and NieR:Automata The End of YoRHa Edition, with the latter apparently performing incredibly well. The jury is still out on No Man’s Sky. Chaos;Child and Choas;Head Noah also come to Switch, available in a double pack.

Then there’s the survival game Medieval Dynasty, which also features town management elements, the incredibly brazen Bomb Jack clone Super Jagger Bomb, novel stealth adventure Kamikaze Veggies, and Castle Renovator – a rejigged console iteration of the PC’s Castle Flipper. Too on the nose, perhaps?
