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.

Super Mario Odyssey wins “E3 2017 Best of Show” from Game Critics Awards

A marquee upcoming release for the Nintendo Switch has once again claimed “Best of Show” from the Game Critics Awards at the E3 Expo. Super Mario Odyssey took home the big prize this year, along with additional wins for “Best Console Game” and “Best Action/Adventure Game.”

Altogether, Nintendo took home top honors in six categories. Super Mario Odyssey’s trio of statues were joined by “Best Handheld Game” for Metroid: Samus Returns, and “Best Original Game” and “Best Strategy Game” for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.

The editors that make up the Game Critics Awards panel made a lot of obvious picks in the rest of the categories, but they also threw in a few surprises. Strong debuts from Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (“Best Action Game”), Destiny 2 (“Best PC Game”), and Forza Motorsport 7 (“Best Racing Game”) lead to a few big wins, but I’m not anyone was expecting Arc System Works to surprise the crowd with Dragon Ball Fighter Z.

All of this year’s winners can be found after the break. (more…)
