Top New Games Releasing On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week — August 18-24, 2019

New Releases breaks down the biggest games launching each week, and this episode is full of games from developers you might already love. Double Fine has the action-RPG Rad, Gunfire Games is launching Remnant: From the Ashes, and Tokyo RPG Factory is releasing Oninaki. Meanwhile, UnderMine comes to Steam Early Access and Nintendo Switch gets Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution.

Rad — August 20

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

The “rad” in Double Fine’s newest adventure is short for “radiation,” because you’ll be exploring a post-apocalyptic irradiated world. The deeper you go, the more radiation you’ll absorb, developing crazy mutations that give you special powers. You’ll have to use a combination of mutant abilities and your trusty baseball bat to beat down the nuclear monsters in this world.

Remnant: From The Ashes — August 20

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, Switch

Speaking of defeating monsters, Remnant: From the Ashes is a survival shooter that pits you against all manner of big beasts. The more you defeat, the more you’ll be able to upgrade your armor and weapons. Each of the game’s four worlds–Earth, Raesa, Rhom, and Corsus–is dynamically generated, so you’ll have new quests and events to experience each time you jump in.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution — August 20

Available on: Switch

For the uninitiated, Yu-Gi-Oh is played by dealing cards that either summon monsters, cast spells, or lay traps as you aim to reduce your opponent’s life force to zero. Link Evolution lets you build your deck from over 9,000 of those cards as you duel characters from the super-popular anime series. You can take on other players in online duels too.

UnderMine — August 20

Available on: PC

UnderMine is a roguelike, which means you’re going to lose lots of characters to the monsters and traps as you dig deeper into each new layer of the mine. Fortunately, new miners retain the upgrades from your previous runs. UnderMine is headed to Early Access on Steam first, with future releases planned on Xbox One and Switch as well.

Oninaki — August 22

Available on: PS4, PC, Switch

Oninaki might still be an RPG, but the team behind I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear is changing things up this time. Most notably, there’s a lot more action thanks to a hack-and-slash battle system. As far as story goes, Oninaki is about the Watchers, who guide trapped souls into the afterlife.
