New This Week in Video Games (4/17 – 4/23)

by Dean James


Last week brought us a few big releases such as Dark Souls 3 and Ratchet & Clank, but this week is definitely much more limited in major releases, though the quantity is greater.

Tuesday especially is one of the weakest in awhile with the console versions of Lichdom: Battlemage leading the way in retail on PS4 and Xbox One, along with Langrisser Re:Incarnation -TENSEI- on 3DS.

Digitally we have the release of the first Chinese game on the PS4 in the West with Koi on Tuesday, along with four classic arcade releases on Xbox One, PS4, and PC the following day.

The week ends with the biggest game of the week easily with Star Fox Zero and Star Fox Guard, the two of which will be bundled together in a physical package.
