New Game Releases: Week of October 14, 2018
Tuesday, October 16th's releases are headlined by Starlink: Battle for Atlas (PS4, Switch, Xbox One).
A third-person action-adventure developed by Ubisoft Toronto, players will explore the space and worlds of the Atlas star system in Starlink, forming alliances with alien races and battling the Forgotten Legion.
Modular toys will also be available for Starlink, allowing players to purchase pilot, starship, and weaponry toys that can then be connected to a special controller and imported directly into the game.
Nintendo Switch owners will have exclusive access to a very special pilot: Star Fox's Fox McCloud.
On Friday, October 19th fans will get the first numbered Soulcalibur entry in six years: Soulcalibur VI (PC, PS4, Xbox One).
This Bandai Namco fighting game will feel familiar to those enfranchised, with its weapon-based battling, but Soulcalibur VI is introducing a new mechanic: "Reversal Edge."
Triggered by landing a charged attack or parrying, "Reversal Edge" starts a slow-motion sequence that fans of Tekken 7 may already be familiar with.
Friday will also see Dark Souls Remastered come to Nintendo Switch.
Released earlier this year for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, this portable remaster of FromSoftware's action-RPG comes with improved graphics (running in 1080p at 30 fps when docked and 720p at 30 fps handheld), changes to online play, and a Solaire of Astora amiibo (sold separately).
Dark Souls Remastered for Switch is yet another opportunity for those new to the franchise to play this classic game, and veterans may be happy enough to play a version with improved performance in the infamously laggy Blighttown.
A full list of releases for the week of October 14 is below.
