New This Week in Video Games (01/08/17 – 01/14/16)

by Dean James


The beginning of the year almost always starts off relatively slow and builds from there, so it is no big surprise that once again there are very few big games that are new this week.

In fact, all releases this week are relegated to digital releases, with Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone being the standout of the bunch. This PS4 release is joined on Tuesday with Asdivine Hearts, Spheroids, and Xenoraid across different PlayStation platforms.

The only announced Xbox One game of the week comes on Wednesday with Acorn Assault: Rodent Revolution, with the 3DS getting Shift DX on Thursday as well. The rest of the week is mostly filled with PC releases and a few stray PS4 releases on Thursday as well.
