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.
