GAME GUIDE: Game Releases For This Week (4/2-11/2)

Last week was a big one for game releases with Dragonball Fighter Z and Monster Hunter: World hitting the market. This week isn’t slowing down with remasters and expansions for you to revisit some of your favourite games. Here’s the big games you can get this week.

Shadow Of The Colossus

Developer: Team Ico Release Date: February 6th, 2018 Platform(s): PlayStation 4

Are you ready to take on the mighty giant Colossus’ once more? Or maybe for the first time? Either way, the return of Team Ico’s absolutely stunning action-adventure title, remade and remastered in HD for the PS4 is going to be a popular choice. This may already be available in your country, with some retailers selling it as much as 3 days earlier than the advertised the release date.

Civilization VI: Rise & Fall

Developer: Firaxis Games Release Date: February 8th, 2018 Platform(s): PC

A new addition is coming to Firaxis Games’ classic Civilization VI, in the shape of its Rise and Fall expansion. Among the additions to the ever-expanding game will be the ability for your civilization to experience both Golden and Dark ages, which will provide an added challenge to the game. There will be enhanced alliances, the ability to pick Governers and, perhaps the best for nerds like me, a timeline to look over the history of the civilization. There will be new civs added to the game, too including Korean, Georgian, Mapuche, Mongolian and others.

Dragon Quest Builders

Developer: Square Enix Business Division 5 Release Date: February 9th, 2018 Platform(s): Nintendo Switch

Originally released in January of 2016, Dragon Quest Builders will make its way to the Switch this week. Now you can take to Alefgard and rebuild and reclaim a destroyed world all on the go. I have never played the Dragon Quest series myself, but this game was very well received and reviewed, so is definitely worth checking out if you’ve got a Switch.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights Of Britannia

Developer: Bandai Namco Entertainment Release Date: February 9th, 2018 Platform(s): PlayStation 4

Based on the popular anime and manga series, The Seven Deadly Sins, Knights of Britannia marks the first video game adaptation of the series and brings its characters together for “an action-packed adventure”. As you can probably tell, I have not heard of this game before.

Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st]

Developer: French Bread Release Date: February 9th, 2018 Platform(s): PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita

Oh, Japan, you and your whacky video game titles. This is an updated version of fighting game Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late, which brings in 4 new characters, some balance and system changes and two new modes, challenge and chronical.
