For Switch owners, a whole new world opens up this week: Undertale. The beloved RPG finally makes its way to Nintendo's platform this week. Will people start opening up on the bus or the train the way they did with the original release?
It's joined by another indie, the Melbourne-made The Gardens Between. I'll have more to say about this later this week: needless to say, it's a neat puzzler. I'll leave it at that.
The Switch also gets Reigns, and Elijah Wood's collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal — Transference — finally launches. Also, space fans will get some more food for thought in the form of Star Control: Origins.
Also, and maybe it's just me because I do this once a week, but it's genuinely starting to seem like the Switch eShop is more interesting week to week than what the Aussie PSN, Xbox or even Steam is getting. Anyway, here's This Week In Games.

Right. Trailer dump! Let's start things off with that odd Ubisoft/Elijah Wood game, Transference.
Undertale is a must play for anyone who hasn't jumped on board — really, make some time if you haven't! — and there's guaranteed to be a quotient of Switch owners into the Capcom classics.
Star Control: Origins is kind of a reimagining of the Star Control series, although it'll be interesting to see how many fans of the original series pop out of the woodwork. As an aside, Origins will come with a story editor. It'll be neat to see what people do with that.
Last but not least, The Slater is described as a "story-driven first-person stealth-action-puzzle game". That's a lot of hyphens.
For most though, this is a bit of a lighter week. But do you see something you like? Or maybe you don't see something here that should be? Let me know!
