The week’s biggest release is undoubtly Dark Souls and Bloodborne maker From Software’s latest game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Actually, Sekiro will likely die more than twice in his quest, but he does have many tools to help cut down enemies, such as a prosthetic arm with different weapons that can be swapped (sadly, no Mega Buster).

 

Koei Tecmo is also bringing out a fourth game in the Arland sub-series of Atelier games with Atelier Lulua, which sees Rorona’s daughter travel the world in order to protect her mother’s atelier as well as unravel the mysteries of the Codex. Finally, the third new release is Super Robot Wars T, bringing good old fashioned hot blood to the table with newcoming series like Cowboy Bebop, and newly returning series like Mobile Fighter G Gundam.

 

As for rereleases, the most prominent title this week is Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy, a Switch/PS4 enhanced port with new jobs, voice acting, and more. Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet also releases on the Switch with a new girl to volleyball with. Steins;Gate: Divergencies Assort also ports every side game to the Switch, just a while after Steins;Gate Elite released for the system a few weeks ago.
