This Week In Games: Don My Jedi Sword & Shield

this week in games ps4 pc xbox one switch pokemon sword and shield

It's time for another one of those big weeks. Let's get our Pokemon and Jedi cap on.

Unless someone breaks street date, I expect a ton of people to be taking Friday off. That's when both Pokemon Sword & Shield and Jedi: Fallen Order drop, which is going to dominate the week for most people. It's not the only game of note this week though: the University expansion for Sims 4 launches on Friday as well.

That's a lot of time skins as is, and that's not including all the indie games that will become available.

Here's what's out this week:

  • The Escapists 1 + 2 (PS4, Xbox - Retail)
  • Pokemon Sword & Shield (Switch)
  • Cities Skylines: Parklife (PS4, Xbox Retail)
  • Forager (Switch, PS4)
  • A Hat In Time (Switch Retail)
  • Tracks (PC Retail)
  • Zen Chess (Switch)
  • Jedi Fallen Order (PC, PS4, Xbox)
  • Valfaris (Switch Retail)
  • The Sims 4: Discover University (PC)
  • Tokyo Ghoul: re Call to Exist (PS4)
  • Beast Quest (Switch)
  • Yaga (Xbox, Switch)
  • W2C 8 (Switch)
  • Fractured Minds (Switch, Xbox)
  • Bee Simulator (PC, PS4, Xbox, Switch)
  • Rocket Wars (Switch)
  • Perils of Baking (Switch)
  • Overlanders Combat Racing (Switch)
  • Mars Power Industries (Switch)
  • Thief of Thieves Season One (Switch)
  • Romancing Saga 3 (PC, PS4)
  • Time Squared (PC)
  • Exile Squadron (PC)

Decent enough lineup for the week. Let's get onto the trailers, starting with a reminder on how Jedi Fallen Order plays.

So, a proper new Pokemon and Jedi Fallen Order. Either take your fancy? Or have you not forgiven Game Freak for sending Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Psyduck to the bread line?


    Super interested in Jedi Fallen Order after the devs said it's taken inspiration from metroidvanias. Holding off though until reviews comment on how prevalent that aspect is.

    Until then Sword and Shield baby! All aboard the hype train choo-choo. Avoiding the leaks has been absolute hell, but I haven't gone into a Pokemon game this blind since... well, ever. Keen as a bean.

      Every time I hear Pokemon Hype train I can't think about anything else except Route 110 music blaring. The trumpets of Hoenn left a mark on my brain

        Yessss, gen 3 is my favourite gen. Those trumpets man, doot doot

    Our family has been marking off the sleeps on the calendar till Pokemon comes out for the last 2 months.. Not sure who is more excited, the 3 little kids or us parents.

      Clearly the parents lol. I know I am anyway, my daughter is pretty excited to start another adventure though.

    Star Wars and Pokémon have me the most interested this week. I’m honestly surprised about Tokyo Ghoul still being a Thing.

    Picked up my Pokemon themed Switch Lite last week, so very keen to get into the game this friday. Might wait a little on Star Wars since I've become consumed by Death Stranding.

    So hyped for Fallen Order. Can not wait to get out of work on Friday to get home, get the daughter to sleep and lose myself in Cal's journey.

    Gonna be playing Death Stranding. Originally was on the fence with that game, but after how disappointing Sword and Shield is looking (it just doesn't look like a console game), I bought it.
