New This Week in Video Games (9/25 – 10/1)

by Dean James


September has been a really busy month for gaming and that continues as we wrap up the month with a number of new releases.

The two biggest releases of the week are without a doubt Forza Horizon 3 and FIFA 17, though the latter technically released last Friday for those that wanted to pay for the more expensive $99.99 Ultimate Edition.

These are joined on Tuesday by the console release of XCOM 2 and the upgraded Dead Rising 2, both of which arrive for Xbox One and PS4 this week.

The rest of the week is filled with various games across the different platforms, but Friday brings the release of the two versions of Yo-Kai Watch 2, as well as Azure Striker Gunvolt 2.
