Nidhogg 2 PC, PS4
Review code for Messhof’s sword-poking sequel sadly didn’t arrive in time for this issue’s deadline, but it’s probably for the best. After all, the day the first Nidhogg arrived in the Edge office, we didn’t get a tremendous amount done. If E311 feels a bit phoned in, you’ll know why.
Assassin’s Creed Origins
PC, PS4, Xbox One That E3 demo may not have flattered, but last year just wasn’t the same without a new Assassin’s Creed. It will forever have its warts, certainly, but there is always magic buried somewhere too. An overseas expedition is imminent; we’ll let you know what we turn up.
Star Fox 2 SNES
Forget Mario + Rabbids: the biggest Nintendo surprise of 2017 is over 20 years old. This sequel, cancelled shortly before release in 1995, will finally be playable thanks to SNES Mini. It’ll likely be rubbish, yes, but we’re looking forward to finding out for ourselves. Surely it can’t be worse than Adventures.
