This Week in Games: Sep 20 – 25

Forrest Sprites, Necromancers, Japanese Crime Families and Anime like Rites of Passages are some of the things on your to do list this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week early with something we saw during the PlayStation State of Play that we could have sworn was a Pixar movie is Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Coming for PlayStation and for PC via the Epic Games Store, Kena seems like a mix of magical combat and herding adorable forest creatures. This one no double will be heavy with the feels.

And possibly the big title for a lot of people this week is coming this Thursday with the not new release but re-release of a title that is probably dueling the sims for the most lost hours in gaming – Diablo II: Resurrection. Remastering the original title for the current generation of gaming this one you can get for PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and for PC via BattleNet it includes all 7 character classes that spanned the original + DLC combined but with added extras like ‘cross progression’ letting you level up on Switch but then be able to jump to the PC edition and continue with those same characters (sorry no cross play though).

And finally for the week is something from the Yakuza creative team with Lost Judgement dropping for Xbox and PlayStation owners. If you have played the previous Yakuza titles then you pretty much know what the gameplay on this one is like but with a new storyline with legal/courtroom drama. If you have played the other titles from this same developer you know what you are getting into.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to a title that plays like something from Studio Ghibli with Sable. Playing as Sable you explore a vast desert on your glider interacting with people and places as part of your rite of passage. This single player adventure title just looks like it hits the right notes with it’s unique art style and you can play it on Steam this Thursday or Xbox on Friday.

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
