Finally, I can ruin people's lives as Rosalina and Waluigi once more.
The week succeeding E3 isn't traditionally stacked with releases, and despite publishers' penchant for announcing and releasing games at the same time, that still hasn't changed.
Case in point: Mario Tennis Aces. The cheeky not-quite-sports game is part of Nintendo's strategy for consistent momentum across the year, dropping this week after an online beta earlier this month. Beyond that, it's a bit quiet although there are some notable games: Flashback returns 25 years after its first release, there's a new Harvest Moon game, and Minecraft comes to the Switch (for $40, mind you).
- Harvest Moon: Light of Hope (PS4)
- New Gundam Breaker (PS4)
- Mario Tennis Aces (Switch)
- Flashback (Switch)
- Alone (PC)
- Urban (PC)
- Minecraft (Switch)
- Drawful 2 (Switch)
- RBI 18 Baseball (Switch)
- Haimrik (PC, XBO)
- Anima Gate of Memories: The Nameless Chronicles (PC, PS4)
And since E3 was last week, it's worth remembering that Hollow Knight (Switch), Fortnite (Switch), Fallout Shelter (PS4, Switch), Tennis World Tour, Jurassic World: Evolution and Wreckfest dropped last week as well.
Some quick trailers for context. First, let's check out New Gundam Breaker:
And for those who might consider pulling away from Stardew Valley for a second, here's Light of Hope:
It's also interesting to see Drawful 2 get a solo re-release on the Switch this week; pity it's not just bundled in with one of the other Jackbox packs, though.
So: are you picking Mario Tennis up this week, or anything that dropped amidst the hustle of E3?
