September’s almost done, but before the month rolls over there’s still a few massive titles that need to dash out the door.
The most eye-opening of them all this week is Code Vein, the hyper stylised anime Souls game featuring tons of bayonets, rifles, axes, greatswords and tons of cool abilities. There’s also co-op — although who knows how well that will work at release — and AI bots to assist in boss fights.
On the opposite side of the gaming spectrum is Fifa 20, which drops across all platforms at the end of the week. Also releasing on Friday is Dragon Quest XI S for the Switch, as well as Dead by Daylight earlier in the week.
If that’s not enough for Souls fans, The Surge 2 lands on Wednesday, as does Contra: Rogue Corps. Jedi Knight 2, Ori and the Blind Forest and Northgard are all hitting the Switch this week too. It’s a busy time, so let’s get started.

Trailers! Let’s remind ourselves how good Jedi Knight 2 is by looking at the Switch version.
Still kind of surprise Infinity: Battlescape hit its release date this week. I’ll probably definitely check that one out, since I’m hugely into space explorers. But there’s a ton of variety to choose from. See anything you like this week?
