MechWarrior fans, roll out. This week is your time to shine, because BattleTech has arrived. Or will arrive. It's the latest mecha game from Jordan Weisman, who created the MechWarrior franchise.
But there's plenty to enjoy elsewhere: Fractured But Whole drops a brown note on the Switch; Death Road to Canada drops on all major platforms, and the adorable Swords of Ditto hits this week as well.
Here's the heavy hitters from this week:
- Death Road to Canada (PC, PS4, XBO, Switch)
- Swords of Ditto (PC, PS4)
- South Park: Fractured But Whole (Switch)
- Devious Dungeon (PS4, Vita)
- BattleTech (PC)
- Frostpunk (PC)
- 39 Days To Mars (PC)
- Exoder (PC)
- Sky Rogue (Switch)
- Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy (Switch)
- A Robot Named Fight! (Switch)
- Saturday Morning RPG (Switch)
- The Invisible Hours (XBO)
- Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap (PS4)
- Darkest Dungeon: Ancestral Edition (Switch retail)
- The Sparkle: Zero (Switch)
- Where Are My Friends (Switch)
Today's pretty nightmarish on my end, so I'll keep this bit short. I didn't mention it before the jump, but Frostpunk is the latest game from the This War of Mine makers. It's about keeping a society together, and forces you into the kinds of brutal situations that you would expect from trying to live in a frozen wasteland.
39 Days to Mars, meanwhile, is a couch co-op game about surviving the "19th century's most unreliable spaceship". There's also a computer-controlled cat, which I'm presuming doesn't help at all.
I'll have more to say about Swords of Ditto later this week. Until then, enjoy an extended gameplay trailer:
And if you're after trippy platformers, there's Exoder. Don't ask me what's going on in this one.
As a small aside, those getting the Naruto Shippuden game will get the first three games (but not the fourth that dropped a couple of years ago). I'd be interested to see how that holds up on the Switch - be surprised if the performance was flawless, honestly.
So that's what's going on this week. Anything take your fancy?
Update: Adventure Time has been delayed later this year, as damian noted in the comments. Updated, and apologies.
