Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

There are no brakes when it comes to new video games. Just when you thought you had a moment to bask in the regaining the Light or vying for control of meat or finally killing the Outsider, there are more games looking to get your attention.

This week’s new releases include Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Pankapu, SteamWorld Dig 2, and Pokken Tournament DX.

Additionally, NBA 2K18, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Switch, Project CARS 2, The Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame, and Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire come out.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite – PS4, Xbox One, PC – September 19

World collide again in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Unfortunately, this time the meeting is under dire circumstances.

Ultron Sigma, a horrible combination of Ultron and Sigma, possesses two Infinity Stones and wants to gain the rest of them for his nefarious purposes of infecting all organic matter with a cybernetic virus.

Not only do the heroes of both universes have to worry about that, but they face a terrible Symbiote threat as Jedah conspires with other villains to create a terrible beast infused with the alien parasite.

Will the heroes be able to work together to stop theses deadly threats, or will they just come to blows? Plus can anyone trust Thanos to stay true to his word and help them find the remaining Infinity Stones?

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite changes up the style of gameplay the series has been known for since Marvel vs. Capcom 2. It harkens back to its roots with 2 vs. 2 fighting.

A new twist to gameplay besides the lack of a third fighter is the ability to use one of the six Infinity Stones to augment fighter’s abilities or use powerful effects.

The game features 30 playable characters spanning across both Marvel and Capcom’s properties like fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon and Frank West.

This is the first time the series has had a full cinematic storyline. Beside the game’s story mode, it features a number of single-player modes like Arcade and Mission.

Its online side features ranked and casual matches, global leaderboards, and online lobbies with spectator mode.

Pankapu – PS4, Xbox One, PC – September 19

In the dreamlike world of Omnia, three Aegis are attempting to fulfill their destiny by defeating Gangreyn, the Prince of Nightmares. It is a fairytale. By contrast, Djaha’rell’s life in the real world is dark and tragic. Pankapu tells two stories side-by-side to create a contrast of readings.



This colorful action platformer is done with an eye for the classic 90’s aesthetic. You can freely switch in real time between three Aegis: Warrior, Archer, and Mage. To master the game’s challenges you’ll need to master each Aegis’ skills and learn when its best to switch between warriors.

SteamWorld Dig 2 – Switch, PC – September 21/22

Dorothy McCrank steps out of the shadows as a side-character to star in SteamWorld Dig 2. When Rusty goes missing, Dorothy must pick up her pickax and get to mining. The world beneath is full of untold riches and terrifying danger, but Dorothy doesn’t have to face it alone.

She’ll rely on a variety of different companions of varying helpfulness on her journey. It’ll be important to learn who is actively out to help you or who is a hindrance as time is running out to find Rusty.
In this platforming meets mining meets Metroidvania adventure, Dorothy will need to upgrade her equipment to reach the further depths. The upgrades are bigger and better this time around in SteamWorld Dig 2.

Not only is SteamWorld Dig 2 a larger game than the original with 10 hours of gameplay, at least. It features a new soundscape thanks to a soundtrack by El Huervo of Hotline Miami fame.

SteamWorld Dig 2 releases first on Nintendo Switch on September 21 with the Steam version following on September 22. Next week the PS4 and PS Vita versions release on September 26 with cross-buy enabled.

Pokken Tournament DX – Switch – September 22

Pokken Tournament DX lets Switch owners take on the challenge of the Ferrum League, fight online against opponent from around the world, and compete in team battles. This 1 vs. 1 fighting game released last year on the Wii U. With a surprising depth despite the game’s accessible mechanics, it won Wii U owners over.

As the first Pokémon game on Switch, Pokken Tournament DX features everything from both the Wii U and arcade versions of the game including all the Pokémon fighters. It also has a lot of new features for the Switch like the ability to play with one Joy-Con and to take it on-the-go with you.

Not only does it feature all the previous fighters from both versions, it also has a new combatant: Decidueye from Pokemon Sun and Moon. New support Pokemon like Litten and Popplio will be available to aid your fighter in battle.

Plus Team Battle, which is a 3-vs-3 survival mode where the first to knock out the opponent’s team wins. Add in daily challenges and more missions in the single-player story mode, there is a lot of new content to explore.
