Europe and sales slightly delayed, unfortunately.
As a new job for the author looms, there's some new games hitting the Nintendo systems this week. For North America, there's a couple of new retail Switch games in R.B.I. Baseball 2017 (review coming as soon as I finish checking out all the ballparks) and LEGO Worlds. But the big movers are on 3DS, where Monster Hunter Stories drops this week with the followup of Metroid: Samus Returns's preload now being available.
The download space sees twin stick shooter NeuroVoider, "culture" game The Bridge and Double Dragon IV landing on the Switch. We have a review for The Bridge from David for your perusal. The retro front is a tale of two titles on Wii U VC as the coolness of Detanta Twinbee is countered by the, uh, not so much of China Warrior.
Europe has gotten R.B.I. and will be getting LEGO Worlds and Binding of Isaac Rebirth in addition to Monster Hunter and a similar slate of smaller Switch titles. Japan's power level creeps to 9001 or so as they pick up Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 - just mind the DLC.
