New Retail Releases: FIFA 18, Gundam Versus, Danganronpa V3, More

Go for the goal with this week’s new retail releases.

EA Sports will bring FIFA 18 to the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PS3, and Xbox 360. It’ll be joined on the pitch by Microsoft’s Forza Motorsport 7: Ultimate Edition, which Xbox One owners can pick up three days earlier than the launch of the standard edition.

There’s nothing standard about massive mechs, and Bandai Namco will bring Gundam Versus to the PS4 this week. NIS America will also deliver a wild new entry in the Danganronpa series, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony for the PS4.

Finally this week, Level-5 and Nintendo will bring Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters to the 3DS, Bethesda will bundle together the Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and THQ Nordic will swoop onto the Switch with Sine Mora EX.

Nintendo will also launch the Super NES Classic Edition microconsole this week, but it might be hard to find one in stores.

New Retail Releases: Metroid Samus Returns, Dishonored Death of the Outsider, NHL 18, NBA Live 18, NBA 2K18, More

Are you ready for some… video games? September is here, and so is the Fall gaming rush. Here’s what game publishers have lined up for release this week…

New entries in a big batch of sports franchises lead the way. EA Sports and 2K Games will square off on the basketball court with NBA Live 18 (PS4, Xbox One) and NBA 2K18: Early Tip-Off Edition (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One). Elsewhere on retail shelves this week, Konami goes for the goal with Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One), EA Sports comes around again with NHL 18 (PS4, Xbox One), and the checkered flag goes to NASCAR Heat 2 (PS4, Xbox One).

Samus Aran isn’t a sports star, but she can contort herself into a tight ball. The intergalactic bounty hunter will have to employ that trick, and many more, to defeat the Metroid menace in Metroid: Samus Returns. Originally released as Metroid II: Return of Samus for the Game Boy, this 3DS re-release boasts a beautiful new art style and revamped combat options.

Speaking of combat, Bethesda and Arkane return with another chapter in the Dishonored saga this week. Dishonored: Death of the Outsider (PC, PS4, Xbox One) introduces players to a new protagonist, and asks them to kill a god. A big adventure also awaits players who take on NIS America’s Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, which will be available this week for the PS4 and Vita.

Finally this week, things take a turn to 2D with Ubisoft’s launch of Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition for the Switch.

Nintendo Download: Monster Hunter Stories, Rayman Legends, Double Dragon IV, more

It’s another big week for acclaimed (and not-to-acclaimed) indie games to find a new home on the Switch, but another big 3DS game will also launch this Friday.

Capcom is shrinking the Monster Hunter franchise down once again in Monster Hunter Stories… but this time there’s a twist. The latest entry in the popular monster-hunting series will also feature an RPG-style story and a ton of brand new characters that are ready to ride into danger.

But back to the Switch. On Tuesday, Ubisoft will bring Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition to the console/handheld hybrid, giving fans another chance to take the well-received platformer on the road. But several indie developers will make their Switch debut this week, including retro-styled brawler Double Dragon IV and monochromatic puzzle platformer The Bridge.

New Retail Releases: Destiny 2, Monster Hunter Stories, Knack II, More

Destiny had a bit of a rocky start after its launch in 2014, but the shooter also built up a dedicated fanbase that only grew after Bungie released a series of expansions in the years that followed. And now, we’re finally ready for Destiny 2, which will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on Wednesday, September 6. Destiny 2 is on track to be quite a bit larger than its predecessor, and Bungie has promised that players will get to explore a brand new story, along with new modes and maps.

If you’re looking to upgrade your PS4, Sony and Bungie have also teamed up to release the PS4 Pro 1TB + Destiny 2 Bundle this week.

A more portable, but no less small, adventure will also launch this week for the 3DS. Capcom will bring Monster Hunter Stories to the platform, in a new game that combines traditional monster-hunting with RPG-like story elements. Colorful monsters can also be found in Knack II, a sequel to Sony’s launch-era platformer.

Fans of Japanese oddities will have two new games to choose from this week from Atlus and Aksys. Atlus will release Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth, a strategy RPG, for the PS4 and Vita. Meanwhile, Aksys will launch Drive Girls, an action game where schoolgirls who can turn into cars battle monsters.

Finally this week, two games that were previously released on other consoles will join the Nintendo Switch’s library… WB Games’s sandbox-style Lego Worlds and MLBAM’s retro-style RBI Baseball 2017.

In addition to unveiling the first gameplay footage from Shovel Knight: King of Cards, Nintendo and Yacht Club Games announced that a new Amiibo 3-Pack featuring King Knight, Specter Knight, and Plague Knight will soon be available.

Tapping each Order of No Quarter member will unlock “exclusive armor sets, new Challenge stages, and the ability to summon fairy companions to accompany players on quests” in Shovel Knight. You can get a look at the new figures in the GameGrumps-produced trailer embedded above.
