Absolutely mammoth week of releases coming up. Mortal Kombat 11 is getting a new story. One of Australia’s most intriguing indie games is finally launching. Minecraft meets Diablo. Cultist Simulator and Darkest Dungeon get new DLC. And one of MicroProse’s classic simulators has made the jump to the Switch?? It’s all happening this week.

There’s a lot in terms of big names and big indies this week. Minecraft Dungeons, Mortal Kombat 11‘s story DLC and Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor are probably the biggest budget productions. Switch owners have Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition to look forward to, as well as the Bioshock Collection.

On the indie front, the Aussie-made Wildfire is finally launching after a lengthy development. The superb Blood Rage tactical board game is getting a digital adaptation this week, off the back of Sagrada‘s excellent conversion.

Seriously a chonkers week for releases. Wildfire, Quantum League, Minecraft Dungeons, Aftermath, Moonlighter on the Switch, F-117A again … so many things to play.

See anything that takes your fancy?


  • Shantae (need to get my Switch LRG preorder in before it closes!) and Xenoblade: Definitive for me.

    PvP DLC for Darkest Dungeon isn’t my jam, and wasn’t part of the initial KS that I backed (or I just plain don’t remember it)

  • Missed XCom 2, supposed to be releasing on Switch on 29th, and the only game I have eyes for atm.

  • Been looking forward to Wildfire for years, will be great to finally play it.

    I’ve been playing Minecraft Dungeons all weekend, it’s great.

  • I could be thinking wrong as I have not finished my coffee yet but isn’t the last of us part 2 out this week? Or is it delayed in Australia or something?
