This Week in Games: Jan 15 – 20


The continuation of one of the original non-Nintendo platformers, a new remaster from Naughty Dog and a great platformer for your Switch are ahead of you for your first week of gaming… yeah we said 2 platformers but it is just January, give it a little time to warm up. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

And for our first big game of the year is Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. Coming to pretty much every platform on Thursday (and to PlayStation and the Switch as a deluxe edition on Monday) this is a return to the classic Prince of Persia 2D roots with some side scrolling platforming and swordplay.

And on Friday for those who only just got through the Last of Use Part I remastered is Part II this Thursday. Still a PlayStation exclusives for those who have already played TLoU Part II the new edition adds more outfits for your main characters but also adds lost levels, and a survival mode (a wave shooter type survival mode). It also adds more free play with the guitar so expect to see a lot of those on your TikTok.

Honourable Mention: And our first honourable mention this year goes to The Pedestrian coming to the Nintendo Switch this Friday. If you are not familiar with this one it has been out via Steam and other consoles for sometime but now on the best platform for it, the Switch. A platformer that has you playing as the little dude you see on road signs and crossings this is a platformer with a unique point of view and a favourite of ours.

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
