This week explore a pixel world to make your own adventure in the Philippines, a beloved Nintendo title getting a remake for modern hardware, a 1987 Atari title with a new breath of life, and two pixelated gems offering Zelda-like questing as the undead and a hack-and-slash as a frog. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting the week with possibly the prettiest game this week despite it having a pixel like flavour is Until Then coming to the PlayStation and on Steam this Wednesday. More for those who enjoy adventure and relationship based games this has you taking control of Mark’s life with detailed scenes, minigames and some cinematic feeling moments that make us want to return to the SCUMM era to play those games for the first time.

What is out from Nintendo this week you ask after the Nintendo Direct threw down so much last week? Can we interest you in a remaster/remake of the 3DS Luigi’s Manion: Dark Moon title with Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD. Dropping on Thursday this one might be more for those who were hanging out for this remake on modern hardware with it still carrying a new release price (for Nintendo).

Continuing in the series of Atari remastering, rethinking and rereleasing their original titles is the isometric racing of NeoSprint. Supporting 8 player multiplayer this is one of the places this genre came from being based on the original Sprint game from 1987. This fun tiny racer is coming to PlayStation, the Switch and via Steam on Thursday with the Windows PC and Xbox editions on Friday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention are both in the realm of 16 and 32bit pixel adventures with the first being the Zelda’like Last Night of Winter. Dropping for PlayStation and the Switch on Friday before Xbox and the Windows PC store on Saturday, this mini-RPG has you waking up dead already, so things cannot go downhill from here but there is good news as you embark on a quest to leave the dungeon and find the royal heir to end your curse.

And our second pixel based honourable mention is more of a strategic action with you taking the role of a Frog/Rogue in Frogue. Jump from wall to wall, avoid and defeat enemies with your sword. If you wanted a more hack and slash version of bubble bobble in your life this mght hit the stop as it comes to the Switch on Thursday with Xbox, PlayStation and Windows PC release 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
