March is packed with video games to wade through, and this week’s episode of New Releases is all about carving a path through them. You can slash through tough bosses in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, take on whole armies in Fate/Extella Link, navigate dark corridors in Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy, and conquer obstacle courses in American Ninja Warrior Challenge. Don’t worry, dinosaur fans: Turok comes to Nintendo Switch this week too.
Turok — March 18
Available on: Switch
The Nintendo 64 classic is coming to Nintendo’s newest console, and it looks much prettier on modern hardware (it’s already out on Xbox One). New coat of paint aside, you’ll still take control of the titular warrior Turok and battle dinosaurs that have ripped through the fabric of time. Crazy weapons like the Plasma Pulse Rifle and Atomic Fusion Cannon await.
Fate/Extella Link — March 19
Available on: PS4, Vita, PC, Switch
This sequel picks up right where Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star left off. You’ll still be battling through hordes of evil soldiers, but you’ll do so with 16 new playable servants. You can get to know them in the flying castle that serves as your base of operations, and you can deal out massive damage in battles by teaming up for Chain Phantasm attacks.
American Ninja Warrior Challenge — March 19
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, Switch
This is the first video game adaptation of the hit TV show, featuring all the same obstacles and even the same commentators. You can customize your own warrior and take on classic challenges like the Jumping Spider and Warped Wall. This action game sports local multiplayer too.
Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy — March 20
Available on: PS4, Switch
Navigating a dungeon isn’t anything new for the Final Fantasy series, but the way you do it in Every Buddy is quite different. Obstacles and enemies only act when you take an action, whether that’s moving, attacking, or using an item. This quasi-turned-based style exploration opens up the door for all sorts of strategies.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice — March 22
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC
From Software brought us Dark Souls and Bloodborne, but Sekiro is something different. For one, everyone will play the same shinobi, who can grapple around the world with a special mechanical arm and actually revive after being killed. Sekiro also has no multiplayer, which means you’ll be taking on tough bosses all by your lonesome.
March still has even more games on the horizon. Next week, New Releases will take another look at Yoshi’s Crafted World, plus some hot re-releases like Assassin’s Creed 3 on current consoles and Final Fantasy 7 on Switch.
