Coming up: The games of October 2017

We’re a little late with this month’s Coming Up (blame NYCC), but it’s a packed month, so there’s still more then enough to talk about.

My… precious

Last week, the 3DS saw the launch of Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions. That was just about it though, so we’re still looking towards the bulk of what’s coming out this month. Chief among those titles is Shadow of War, the next (and final?) game in the Middle-earth series.

If you’re a Lord of the Rings fan of any stripe, then this is a game that you pretty much need to take a look at. Expanding and deepening the tale started in Shadow of Mordor, SoW also continues to push the Nemesis system to its limits. While I can’t wait to dive into this one, it’s not all that’s Coming Up though. Not by a long shot.

Wolfenstein 2, The Evil Within 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Battle Chasers, WWE 2K18, and more are all seeing release. The PC finally gets its Destiny 2, and the Switch gets another NBA title. Yep, it’s a big, big month. So let’s dig into this month’s Coming Up with the biggest releases for October, 2017.
