A combination of Thanksgiving and Black Friday has seemingly made this week a quiet one, with only a handful of new releases arriving on each platform. Next week is looking busier, and we still have Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Nacon’s co-op battler Gangs of Sherwood, and the belated Xbox version of Baldur’s Gate 3 to look forward to before the year is out – alongside a good dozen indies.
This week we can expect the stylised 2D platformer Wordless – which also features turn-based battles – the monochrome RPG In Stars and Time, and a double-whammy of train-based games with Train Valley 2 – Community Edition alighting on all platforms, and Train Traffic Manager arriving on Xbox.
The Switch gains the cutesy party suite PUI PUI Molcar Let’s! Molcar Party! too, published by Bandai-Namco.
Then there’s Jurassic Park Classic Games Collection from Limited Run. Originally it was planned to merely include Ocean’s 8-bit and 16-bit Jurassic Park games, but in the last few months, the studio was able to snag SEGA’s Mega Drive/Genesis games. It’ll be interesting to see how many of these hold up. We recall SEGA’s digitised Jurassic Park action platformer being a bit frustrating.
Other new releases include the colourful block-based puzzler SETTRIS, roguelike deckbuilder Alina of the Arena, co-op eco-friendly adventure Trash is Fun, and the heavily stylised narrative driven adventure Deserted – reportedly inspired by Out of the World. Or Another World, as it was known in Europe.
