A pretty big week for Nintendo fans will see the arrival of Sonic Frontiers, plus It Takes Two, Sifu, Oddworld, and the even the Garbage Pail Kids.
Blasting into a new Frontier
While there aren’t a ton of massive releases this week on Switch, there are a good number of titles that might be worth your time. Chief among those of course, is the headlining game, Sonic Frontiers.
If you haven’t seen Frontiers, it’s very different for a Sonic game. For one thing, it doesn’t look to have the usual look at all. Instead, it frames Sonic and his supporting cast against a somewhat realistic world. Strange? Yeah, maybe, but the more you see it, the better it looks. And it’s so different, I can’t help but be interested.
So what else is there? Well, there’s the newest edition of Oddworld: Soulstorm, as well as the arrival of Sifu and It Takes Two, plus the great-looking FPS Prodeus, and a real outta left field retro title with Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike & the Quest for Star Gum.
See? Pretty good week. Scroll down for the full list.
