An E3 2017 open world zombie title hits XBox early, return to Hyrule with your Nintendo Switch and the Australian made Framed collection making it’s way to Steam are just some of the games in store this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Wednesday brings a beautiful adventure platformer for XBox One which will make you feel like you are playing inside a Studio Ghibli film with Forgotton Anne. We aren’t kidding about the graphics with hand crafted visuals done in the same way as some of your favourite Manga and a soundtrack performed by the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra.

Also on Wednesday, but on Steam we are looking forward to Splitter Critters. While a little hard to explain think of it like Lemmings but you have the ability to cut and move the world at will, but without you know destroying half the universe (Too soon?).

Return to Hyrule on Friday with Hyrule Warriors Ultimate Edition for the Nintendo Switch. An update to the original Legend of Zelda spin-off game for the Wii U this new edition includes all the playable characters from the Wii U and 3DS editions but for your new and shiny Nintendo Switch for some awesome co-op.

Also out on Switch on Friday is the slightly spooky Little Nightmares. Already critically acclaimed for it’s PC, XBox and PlayStation editions you can now take this side scrolling horror platformer with a kid in a yellow raincoat with you everywhere.

With E3 on the horizon XBox One owners finally get a chance to play the open world zombie State of Decay 2. Set for general release next week you and up to 3 of your XBox friends can establish your base and make lasting decisions with consequences impacting the open world as you survive against the walking dead. Pick it up Saturday.

Honourable Mention: Our Honorable mention is not a new game but if you haven’t played Framed by Melbourne’s Loveshack Entertainment then this Thursday. Already out for mobile devices this hugely successful indie title is making it’s way to Steam collected with both Framed and Framed 2.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
