What Are You Playing This Weekend?

The weekend is for dressing up in colourful spandex outfits and fighting crime alongside your besties. Failing that, you could probably just play a video game with the same premise.

Yeah, I plan on digging into the Switch-exclusive DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power, the game based on DC Comics’ groundbreaking girl-positive superhero cartoon and toy line. The cartoon, which launches its second season this Sunday, is basically My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic with iconic DC heroes instead of horses with butt stamps. It’s good stuff.

The new game, launching today, places players in the booties of Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl, as well as villains like Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Star Sapphire. These characters beat-up baddies, explore Metropolis, and use in-game currency to restore run-down portions of the city. Noble endeavours indeed.

So yes, I shall be getting my cape on this weekend. What will you be playing?
