Like racing? Creepy indies? Bizarre puzzlers? Or boxy WW2 shooters? Then there’s a ton of new games that might take your fancy this week.

Despite none of the big releases landing this week — Ghost of Tsushima isn’t for a fortnight — there’s still plenty of new games to enjoy. Superliminal is launching on the Switch tomorrow, despite not hitting the PC until November.

Those enjoying virtual racing will appreciate F1 2020 this week, which launches on all platforms. (Split-screen racing is back too, which is interesting.) Switch owners have a massive glut of new games to pick from: Catherine: Full BodyDeadly Premonition 2Trails of Cold Steel 3 and RPGs like Crosscode.

On the PC front, it’s a bit quieter. But there’s still some surprises, including the first WW2 shooter from the revamped MicroProse, Warfare 1944.

Here’s all the new games coming out this week:

  • F1 2020 | PC, PS4, Xbox One
  • Superliminal | Switch
  • Catherine: Full Body | Switch
  • Trails of Cold Steel III | Switch
  • Elden: Path of the Forgotten | Switch
  • Crosscode | Switch
  • Deadly Premonition 2 | Switch
  • Neon Abyss | Switch
  • Distraint 2 | Switch
  • The Great Perhaps | Switch
  • Creepy Tale | Switch
  • NASCAR Heat 5 | Xbox
  • SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris | PC, PS4, Xbox
  • Kingdom: Majestic Limited Edition | PS4, Switch
  • My Universe, My Baby | Switch
  • Little Town Hero Big Idea Edition | Switch
  • Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town | Switch
  • Warfare 1944 | PC
  • Astronomia | PC
  • 180 Files: The Aegis Project | PC
  • Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 | PC

Onto the official game trailers, then. Let’s start by reminding ourselves what the new Bloodstained game looks like. (Note that while it says all consoles and the Switch, I can’t see listings for Curse of the Moon 2 on any Australian store bar Steam at the time of writing.)

Also, please watch the Deadly Premonition 2 trailer in full. It is really something.

Superliminal really looks great. And Deadly Premonition 2 is … that’s gonna be a thing for sure. Trails of Cold Steel is a great RPG if you want to disappear for a month or so, too.

See anything you like this week?


  • Bloodstained: CotM 2 is a definite buy. My guilty pleasure is the SAO games (despite only really liking the first arc of the anime) so I’ll probably be getting SAO: Alice’s Licorice as well.

  • ATLUS’ Catherine Full Body is what I’m interested in playing this week because with Catherine Full Body coming out for Nintendo Switch it’s definitely a good start for ATLUS and that Persona producer and director of Studio Zero Katsura Hashino will be still be hard at work to hopefully bring us Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch when it comes out in the West very soon and also work on bringing the original Persona 5 to the Nintendo Switch.
    Even though Catherine Full Body is full of in-game content including the opportunity to play as Joker the Protagonist from Persona 5.
    I hope ATLUS continues their work on bringing Persona 5 to the Nintendo Switch and hopefully bringing Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers to the West even though ATLUS is due to release 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim which is coming out on PS4 on September 8 later this year.
