Some of this week's downloads may cause high levels of despair, and I'm not just talking about Island Flight Simulator.

We are officially in the winter of too many games. The big ones this week are rhythm roguelike (it makes sense in context) Crypt of the Necrodancer and beloved adventure game Night in the Woods. For whatever reason, likely related to it being published by Spike Chunsoft, Necrodancer was only advertised in Japan - but the relationship means Danganronpa music, so I approve.

There's a lot of titles crawling out of the wreck that was the Wii U this week. I speak only in terms of sales, of course. The biggest of the group are SteamWorld Dig, which Zach has helpfully reviewed for us, and Shiftlings, which I reviewed back in the day. Keeping on the retro front, Samurai Shodown II is your Archives release this week alongside Konami finding a couple of TG-16 games behind the fridge and tossing them on the Wii U.

Europe has Night in the Woods and SteamWorld Dig as its big guns with Necrodancer releasing next week. Japan has a visit from the Dragonborn with Skyrim and Squirrel Girl with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. And man, I wish that second part was true.

Addendum: The Switch in both North America and Europegot a late, not-even-in-the-PR addition of The Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya. Meanwhile, Europe added the two NA-announced TG-16 games (one of which, Necromancer, is an untranslated RPG for some reason!?) and two other games for the same system, including a Super-CD game. Yes, that means there were four Wii U games in one day in Europe. Both territories also received a demo for the February 13 3DS release of Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology.
