New This Week in Video Games (10/18 – 10/24)

Recommended Videos

We are only starting to truly kick off what we know as the holiday season and we already have plenty that is new this week, with a lot of big titles in the mix.

Following the return of Rock Band a couple weeks ago, now it is Guitar Hero’s turn with Guitar Hero Live, complete with a very different experience. On the musical side, the latest Just Dance game is also here this week, along with a special Disney Channel inspired one separately.

The big RPG release of the week is Tales of Zestiria, which is another release in the long running Tales series, with this one having a lot of hype around it for RPG fans. As a fighter offering, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden arrives for the 3DS for those looking for some Dragon Ball Z action to coincide with the blu-ray release of the new movie.

For those following both Life is Strange and Tales From the Borderlands, this is a big week for you, as you will get the conclusion to both stories with their respective episode 5’s.

Thursday brings a very under the radar release of a new Fatal Frame game for Wii U, largely due to it being a digital only game.

Lastly, we have two big releases on Friday, with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate for current-gen consoles and PC, as well as The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes for the 3DS.
