After not hearing anything about this game since last E3, Matterfall finally showed back up this year with a release date of August 15th. This will make 2017 a two-game year for Housemarque as Nex Machina comes out in a week from this posting.
It’ll be fun to finally experience the first game’s story with fleshed out details and the Japanese voice acting that was missing from the original release. I think if there’s anything I might have a problem with, it will be the Majima Everywhere system. Apparently only by fighting Majima can you upgrade Kiryu’s original fighting style which means most of this game will be like playing Yakuza 0 with Yakuza 1’s story.
Senko no Ronde 2
One of the few Xbox 360 games I played when I had the system was the original Senko no Ronde when it was released stateside in 2007. It was an enjoyable shmup/fighter hybrid that was really hard to find competition online. I mostly ran into Japanese players that were still playing it.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite
Despite Capcom’s woes of late which I feel are largely way overblown, I am looking forward to a reworked MvC that goes back to 2v2 of the earlier games in the series.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
While I haven’t touched my copy of MachineGames’ first Wolfenstein yet, I’ve always enjoyed the series overall and have played all the previous games. I expect I will be down for this one once I play The New Order.
I participated in the Windjammers beta this past week and now I am more excited than ever to throw down in the final release later this year!
