Top New Games Releasing On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week — May 17-23, 2020

This episode of New Releases opens and closes with some hot remasters: The Wonderful 101 and Saints Row: The Third. There’s also a re-release of The Persistence if you’re looking for a horror experience. Meanwhile, hero shooter fans can jump into Amazon Games’ Crucible, and Jaws enthusiasts can take control of their own deadly shark in Maneater.

The Wonderful 101: Remastered — May 19

Available on: PS4, PC, Switch

Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Platinum Games’ cult classic is back, with an improved framerate, graphics, and controls. For those who missed out on the game the first time, here’s the gist: 100 superheroes can fuse together into giant fists, guns, and more to leap through levels, solve puzzles, and beat bosses. Physical copies of the remaster are unfortunately delayed due to coronavirus, but the May 19 launch date is locked in for the digital release.

Amazon Games is getting into the hero shooter genre with Crucible, but the matches aren’t just about taking out your opponents. Crucible also incorporates PvE elements, with third-party creeps to battle on the map. Take them out, capture the command point they were guarding, and you’ll rank up your squad and unlock perks. Each character’s abilities are quite versatile too, letting you incorporate multiple playstyles in each match.

The complete edition takes The Persistence and simply removes its mandatory VR requirement. So if you don’t own a PSVR or PC headset, you’ll be able to experience the horror roguelike now. It’s set on an abandoned space station overrun by mutants, and you’ll have to contend with them as you try to repair the ship and make your way back home.

Maneater — May 22

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Maneater

Before the events of Maneater, a fisherman disfigured a baby shark and killed her mama. You take control of the orphan shark and get revenge, earning new abilities as you feed and grow. You’ll use these abilities to feast on swimming civilians and battle other predators in a variety of watery environments, from the oceans to the inland rivers. The PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions are launching this week, but the Switch version will release at a later date in 2020.

Saint’s Row: The Third Remastered

Switch got its own Saints Row 3 port last year, and now a remastered version is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It’s set in a better-looking Steelport, thanks to updated visuals, better textures, and a new lighting engine. As you’d expect, it includes the original game plus every bit of previously released DLC–that’s three full expansions and 30 add-on packs.

Next week, New Releases will take one more look at some upcoming May games. We’ll check out Minecraft Dungeons and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition.
