Hack and slash through Techno Retro side scrollers, drop into 3 player fire teams on alien planets and find yourself a great bargain on mutated ill-tempered sea bass while gaming this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Sitting somewhere between The Last Starfighter and a SEGA Megadrive collection is the retro styled Narita Boy. Giving us some techno Adventure Time like vibes this new side scrolling adventure hack and slash comes from the same publisher that brought you Worms. This honestly looks like a heap of fun and we cant wait to play it on the Switch first on Tuesday and then Wednesday on Steam, PlayStation or for free as part of Xbox Game Pass.

After dropping a demo last week Square Enix is already ready to release their new 1-3 player drop-in-drop-out shooter – Outriders. Here is the deal, you are part of a 3 person fireteam send to a hostile planet. Along the way you will level up your character and unlock skill tree perks RPG style. Think Destiny but built for NextGen hardware. It is out for the Xbox (Series X/S optimised), Playstations on Thursday and Steam Friday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes the 17 years later sequel Evil Genius 2: World Domination. Successor to the original game from 2004, Evil Genius is from the Dungeon Keeper style of games whereby you design and build a dungeon (or secret hollowed out volcano lair in this instance) and without direct control allow your minions to run it, with the exception of your #2. The original was so much fun we can’t wait to pick up this new update when it comes out on Steam on Wednesday.

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
