New This Week in Video Games (7/26 – 8/1)

by Dean James


Once again we don’t have a ton of major releases that are new this week, but we do still have a slate of gamers that will be interesting nonetheless.

The biggest release of the week is the much awaited revival of King’s Quest releasing across both PlayStation, Xbox, and PC this week. It is joined by yet another episodic style game with the 4th episode of Life is Strange also coming this Tuesday.

Legend of Kay Anniversary releases this week for PS4, Wii U, and PC as well, which is quite the unexpected remaster. We also get The Swindle that is releasing on all PlayStation platforms, as well as Xbox One and PC.

N++ finally makes its way to PS4 as well, along with a port of Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment.
