Finally this week, gamers will get the chance to purchase World to the West (PS4, Xbox One), a 3D action-adventure from the creators of Teslagrad; Rogue Stormers (PS4, Xbox One), a dieselpunk side-scrolling shooter; Sudden Strike 4 (PC, PS4), a real-time strategy game about World War II; and Troll & I (Switch), a 3D action-adventure about a giant troll and his human buddy.

Super Mega Baseball 2 release delayed until Spring 2018

Break out your old Three Stooges and a handful of Walker Texas Ranger episodes, Metalhead Software announced that Super Mega Baseball 2 has been delayed.

Originally scheduled to launch for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in September, the developer confirmed there’s more work to be done on the game’s features (most importantly, the online multiplayer) to make sure they’re up to snuff. Super Mega Baseball 2 is now expected to launch sometime in Spring 2018, when people are thinking about baseball again.

However, this delay also means that Metalhead will have extra time to “work on small features and pieces of content that had previously been cut out of our scope” and host a beta test for the game.

In the meantime, the developer called up a new gameplay trailer for Super Mega Baseball 2 focusing on Lineup Management. It’s been embedded above.

Metalhead’s full statement about Super Mega Baseball 2’s delay can be found after the break.

Xbox Store Today: Jump Step Step, King of Fighters 96

Two new additions to the Xbox Games Store will help usher in the weekend.

First up is Jump Step Step, a “relaxing puzzle game” from Phung Games that asks players to help a robot named Bob find his lost limbs (insert your C-3PO jokes here). Players won’t control Bob directly in the isometric puzzler, instead inputting a sequence of commands that hopefully allows them to reach the exit.

Also available to download today is The King of Fighters 96, the third game in the famed SNK fighting franchise, and the second chapter of the “Orochi Trilogy.” This time around, players will be able to choose from 27 different characters.

You can learn more about both games after the break.
