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.

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.
