This Week In Games: The Colossus Calls

With Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ out of the way, things are settling down for a week or two. But if you're in need of something to play, there's always the Shadow of the Colossus remake, which drops on Wednesday. Kids will also enjoy the Dragon Quest take on Minecraft with Dragon Quest Builders, and Card Crawl looks like a fun alternative for anyone who enjoyed Hand of Fate.

Here's the biggest picks from what's out this week. Note that you might need a US Nintendo account to get some of the Switch titles, but that's free to make provided you've got a spare email address.

  • Shadow of the Colossus (PS4)
  • Portal Knights (Switch)
  • Dragon Quest Builders (Switch)
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia (PS4)
  • Card Crawl (PC)
  • The Darkside Detective (Switch)
  • Marooners (PS4, XBO)
  • R-COIL (PC)
  • Overdriven Reloaded: Special Edition (XBO)
  • Dandara (PC, PS4, XBO, Switch)

Next week is scheduled to be substantially bigger, with Kingdom Come: Deliverance, the Bayonetta games, Fe, the console launch of Owlboy and the Secret of Mana remake. Phew. Get the break in while you can, I guess.

    Next week The wait is over: Dynasty Warriors 9.
    Very hyped.

    Adults will also enjoy DQB very much as well. I can't wait until 2 comes out.

    Also out this week:
    Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] (Vita, PS3, PS4)
    Aegis Defenders (PC/PS4/Switch)
    Bleed 2 (PS4/XBOne)

      Still pissed they are charging $80 for what is essentially a two year old game

      oh no i'm playing DBZ too much that i forgot about UNIEL, will have to give that a wait :(

    Just putting it out there, you definitely don't need to be a kid to enjoy DQB. That shit gets dark! Plus it's hella fun.

    Very keen for Bayonetta next week. Cheapest price I can find is $67.99 from Ozgameshop. Anyone know if A UK Bayonetta 1 code will work on the Aus Eshop?

      Pretty sure we're still grouped in with them when it comes to region things on there, so it should do.

        Yeah, I know that we're in the same region as them (PAL), just wasn't sure if we used the same Eshop.

      Without having tested it on Switch, I'd say probably not. I bought Pikmin 3 on the Wii U via an English code and had to change the region before I could redeem and download it. However, I was then able to play it from my Australian account.

      But yeah, do some research first!

        Yeah, had the feeling I'd have to change regions or make a UK account to do it.

        Might just get it from Target. it'll cost me a few dollars more, but at least it'll be cheaper than EB Games, and I know the code will work.

    The Rise and Fall expansion for Civilization VI is also out this week on the 8th.

    Pre-ordered. Am watching the countdown. Cannot wait. One of the greatest games of all time.
