There are a ton of new games coming out this week, most of them smaller niche titles. There are a few big hitters this week though. Leading the charge is the confusingly named Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition – Marvel Super Heroes. The title will be available for pretty much everything that isn’t a handheld (including PC), so if you’re itching to get your figurine collecting gameplay on, now’s your chance. FIFA 15 is also out this week, as is Dark Souls II: Crown of the Ivory King. Hyrule Warriors, the Dynasty Warriors style game based on the Zelda franchise is also quietly releasing for the Wii U this week.
In the interesting but not as well-known category of releases we have several releases. The sequel to 2008’s fantastic, Defense Grid: The Awakening, is Defense Grid 2, available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, a beautiful and eerie looking adventure game comes to the PC and PS4. We’ve also got Slender: The Arrival hitting PS3, and Gauntlet, the much anticipated remake, hitting the PC.
In the incredibly oddly title Japanese port category we have Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!!!!!, Ar Nosurge: Ode to An Unborn Star, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal World! Duel Carnival. Yup, those are real games. Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!!!! is a fighting game featuring an all female cast and will be released PS3 and PS Vita. Ar Nosurge: Ode to An Unborn Star is a JRPG for the PS3. Finally, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal World! Duel Carnival is a card battle game, set in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal.
Several other games are releasing this week as well. Flockers, the Lemmings-style puzzler makes it’s way to the PS4. Fenix Rage, the fast-paced platformer, will make it to the PC. Frozen Synapse: Prime will make it’s debut on the PS Vita. Finally, IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad makes it to PC.
