More Final Fantasy on Xbox and the Switch, fight Zombies in early access on Steam and some side-scrolling pixel shooters are what you have to look forward to in gaming this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

This week another Final Fantasy title gets the HD treatment and jumps from it’s previously Sony Exclusive status with Final Fantasy XII: Zodiac Age out for the Switch on Tuesday and Xbox One on Wednesday this week. We have seen a lot of classic FF titles make the leap this year but we aren’t complaining about more titles like this making their way to the Switch.

On Friday over on Steam is the Quiet Sleep coming into Early Access. You play as a lonely guard of your medical base who has to defend it against Zombie hordes each passing day but you don’t have to do it alone with network coop also included with the solo mode. We think this top-down shooter looks like a lot of fun but love the way the nighttime gameplay looks with the flashlight. Check it out later this week.

And finally, on Saturday get your 1942/Galaga fix with the space shooter – Black Paradox. This retro title out on Xbox One ticks all the right boxes for our arcade shooter needs as you upgrade your ships firepower while defending against waves of enemies. Because sometimes you just want some mindless shooter fun.

Honourable Mention: Our honourable mention this week goes to the Xbox One isometric run and gunner, Crashbots. A slightly new look for a side-scrolling shooter as you make your way in an angled view as you avoid obstacles and mow down scores of bots with your blasters. Check it out on Thursday via the Xbox store.

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
