New Game Releases for 12/22 – 12/28: Meet the New Games, Same as the Old Games

There is nothing technically “new” coming out this week. I guess Santa’s elves have made all the new games they’re going to make this year. Instead, we get a few ports and special editions of existing games.

shantaeThe newest of the not new games is Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, which comes to the Wii U two months after its 3DS debut. One of developer WayForward’s few completely original properties, this third installment of the action/platformer series is essentially more of the same, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing as the Shantae games have always been solid titles. Of course, the retro-style platform genre has gotten a lot more crowded the last few years and I know a lot of people are getting  a bit burnt out on them, but if you just can’t get enough of those kinds of games then Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse should be on your radar.

The biggest additions to this version are enhanced graphics and online multiplayer. If you happened to miss out on Trine 1 this is definitely the version to get, and it’s worth revisiting even if you skipped straight to part 2.
