This Week In Games: A Gloomy Warlock Haven

this week in games marvel ultimate alliance 3

It's not Fire Emblem week just yet, but at least we've still got Black Widow and Thanos to break our hearts.

Both are a part of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, which hits the Switch this Friday. The third-person co-op action brawler is the headline game of the week, although nobody knows if it'll have classic Atari games baked inside like Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 did.

Tabletop fans should pay attention this week too though, because the digital recreation of Gloomhaven comes out of early access. We don't usually feature early access titles here, but ... it's Gloomhaven, possibly one of the biggest crowdfunded games in tabletop history. That's kind of a special moment. The excellent noir indie Night Call also drops this week, but only on PC.

Here's the scoreboard:

  • Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 (Switch)
  • Cities Skylines (Switch)
  • LOST ORBIT: Terminal Velocity (Switch, XBO)
  • Initial2: New Stage (XBO)
  • Welcome to Hanwell (XBO)
  • Pawarumi (XBO)
  • Gloomhaven (PC)
  • Distrust (Switch)
  • Archlion Saga (Switch)
  • Hyperlight Ultimate (Switch)
  • Etherborn (PC, Switch)
  • Redeemed Enhanced Edition (Switch)
  • Astro Bears (Switch)
  • Night Call (PC)
  • Warlocks 2: God Slayers (PC)
  • Ravenland (PC)
  • FIA European Truck Racing Championship (PC)
  • Nowhere Prophet (PC)
  • Horace (PC)
  • Let's Sing 2019 (PC)
  • Killsquad (PC)

Onto the trailers! We'll kick off with Killsquad, a co-op ARPG that's targeting the Last of Exile crowd with a bit of a Warframe aesthetic.

Marvel obviously will be a highlight for fans of the older games, but Gloomhaven and Night Call stand out to me this week. I'm also super intrigued by Killsquad and Warlocks 2: God Slayers; the latter in particular has a fantastic aesthetic, and the co-op functionality could be a lot of fun.

See anything you like this week?


    Astrobears for switch, isn't that already out? But release date seems right, what do I have then.

      Depends what eShop region you got it from, maybe?

        I'm not smart enough to get it from anywhere but the Australian region

        Ok mystery solved. I have Astro bears party, which is being upgraded to Astro bears
        Apparently I'll get the new content for free which is pretty cool, although have to upgrade within a month for anybody else in the same boat
