The Switch is about to become a haven for the evil Marik Ishtar, what with all these Steves running around.
So you might have heard of this week's big release. It's been on quite a few platforms but made a quick arrival on the Switch, and its multiplayer will prove to be a hit especially since you can do it out of the box. I speak of course... of the legendary fighter Garou: Mark of the Wolves which is this week's Arcade Archives release.
But seriously folks, Minecraft's out this week. Even if I'm not exactly down to hang out with the world's second most famous Steve (behind Stone Cold Steve Austin and just ahead of Captain America), Justin Nation certainly was. The big boss took a shot at NBA Playgrounds, but the online for that won't be up until later so you won't be able to do your impression of Kobe Bryant in a game 7.
Most of the releases are worldwide this week, except for the latest from Kamiko publishers Flyhigh Works.
