New This Week in Video Games (12/18/16 – 12/24/16)

by Dean James


Christmas is almost here and with that typically comes a lower number of games that are new this week. While there aren’t that many major releases, there are still some quality games to be had this time this around, which is actually better than last week’s roundup.

The biggest game that is new this week is Telltale Game’s latest with The Walking Dead: A New Frontier’s premiere. With the premiere being so large though, it has been split into two parts, which are both out this week.

Joining that is the latest Shantae game, which is releasing as a digital exclusive outside of those that manage to snag one of the very limited edition physical copies online.

Check out the full list of new releases below of what you can expect to be new this week for December 18th through December 24th.
