Out this week: The Crew Motorfest, MythForce, SUPER BOMBERMAN R 2, Eternights, Ad Infinitum, Nour, more

If our page views and X (née Twitter) interactions are to go by, nobody is interested in anything other than Starfield and Baldur’s Gate 3 at the moment – except perhaps for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 news.

A pity, as this week is packed full of promising titles, and there’s a good mixture of genres too. Ubisoft kickstarts their autumn line-up with the Hawaii-set The Crew Motorfest – which appears heavily influenced by the most recent Forza Horizon – Konami bounces back with the multiformat SUPER BOMBERMAN R 2, Bandai-Namco is about to drop the time-consuming Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster on Switch, while Nacon launches the WWI horror Ad Infinitum.

On the subject of Bomberman, there’s a new Dynablaster due this week on Xbox One. They could’ve timed that better. Or perhaps the publisher is poising it as a low-cost alternative.

And if you’re eager to play Mortal Kombat 1, the £89.99 Premium Edition is out Thursday, granting early access along with Shang Tsung DLC and the Jean-Claude Van Damme skin for Johnny Cage.

Then there’s the promising faux Saturday morning cartoon first-person Roguelike MythForce, a console release of the cinematic action platformer Full Void – coming soon to Evercade – the twin-sticking shooting dungeon crawler Mystic Gate, top down shooter AK-xolotl, an Xbox release of Annapurna’s Solar Ash, and the visually alluring PSN stomach rumbler Nour: Play With Your Food.

We can also expect the curiously colourful NASCAR Arcade Rush, FMV adventure The Isle Tide Hotel, apocalyptic battler/dating hybrid Eternights, a bunch of belated Kairosoft games on Xbox One, the Punch Out! inspired Thunder Ray, and the multiformat Inspector Gadget: Mad Time Party. The bungling inspector has seen quite a few games over the years, dating back to the humble C64. Go, Gadget, Go!
