Out this week: Hogwarts Legacy, The Redress of Mira, Raiden IV x MIKADO remix, Go! Go! PogoGirl, more

Doubtlessly fuelled by glowing previews, huge pre-order figures for Hogwarts Legacy suggest it’s going to be one of the biggest-selling games of 2023.

It certainly seems that the delay paid off, with pre-release footage showing off a huge, richly detailed, world to explore and combat that appears surprisingly deep. It’s the authentic Harry Potter experience fans have long lusted for.

However, it’s also one of the most controversial releases in some time – solely due to the association with J.K Rowling. It’s entirely up to you to make your own purchasing decision, but in this instance, definitely think twice about where your money is going. Rowling has upset a lot of communities recently.

It seems that most publishers have decided to stay clear of Hogwarts Legacy, as the rest of this week’s titles are mostly smaller titles or indie releases. These include the fantasy adventure The Redress of Mira, Ziggurat’s Prison Tycoon: Under New Management, a PlayStation and Xbox release of 2021’s Raiden IV x MIKADO remix, and the ‘90s style platformer Go! Go! PogoGirl.

We reviewed Raiden IV x MIKADO remix last week and found it to be an enticing package. It’s a little hard to recommend over Raiden V, though – Raiden IV is starting to show its age visually.

With rumours of a Nintendo Direct circling, we may see a few ‘shadow drop’ multiformat releases later this week. Check back on Thursday to see what’s hitting the Switch eShop.
