With the week drawing to a close, it’s time to check out the latest deals on the Nintendo Switch. This week’s new releases include the highly anticipated return of Samus in Metroid Dread, back for a brand new 2D adventure.
As if that weren’t enough, there are plenty of other titles that will get your gaming juice flowing, like reinventing the classic Tetris in Tetris Effect: Connected or the ultimate edition of the grueling RPG Disco Elyssium.
It goes without saying that everyone in the PN office loves the Metroid Dread, but what games are on your playlist? Check out all the new releases below and let us know which games you play this week.
- Metroid Dread – Dress up as the intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran and fight your way from the depths of a mysterious alien world plagued by a mechanical threat. While investigating a mysterious broadcast depicting the deadly X Parasite, you must avoid the nightmarish EMMI – Extraplanetary Multiform Mobile Identifiers. These agile robots won’t hesitate to destroy you … and they’re just one of the many dangers you face. Hunt or be hunted as you surface through a maze of enemies in Samus’ most intense side-scrolling adventure to date. The Metroid Dread game will be available on October 8th.
- Disco Elysium – The Final Cut – Become a hero or an absolute disaster. Disco Elysium – The Final Cut is the definitive edition of the groundbreaking RPG. You’re a detective with a unique skill system and an entire city block to make your way through. Interrogate memorable characters, crack murders or accept bribes. Disco Elysium – The Final Cut is out October 12th.
- Tetris Effect: Connected – Tetris Effect: Connected is Tetris like you’ve never seen, heard or felt it before – an incredibly playable, unique and breathtakingly beautiful reinvention of one of the most popular puzzle games of all time, from the people who gave you the award-winning Rez Infinite and brought the legendary puzzle game Lumines. Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects – everything, right down to the Tetris pieces themselves, pulsates, dances, shimmers and explodes in perfect synchronization with your game, making each of the game’s 30+ levels and 10+ modes something. Wants to experience over and over again. Tetris Effect: Connected will be available on October 8th.
- Gang Beasts – Gang Beasts is a goofy multiplayer party game featuring grumpy gelatinous characters, brutal slapstick fighting sequences, and absurdly dangerous environments set in the mean streets of Beef City. Customize your character and fight local and online opponents in melee game mode or fight with friends against the gangs of Beef City in gang game mode.
