Yo-kai Watch 2
Yo-kai Watch 2 comes in two different versions, Fleshy Souls and Bony Spirits, but there’s not much difference between the two! Fans of the original game might actually get less out of this one than newcomers will: there’s a lengthy section at the start reintroducing everything, and in some ways it feels like the same game again, just with improvements! There are online battles now and a bunch of new Yo-kai, and the plot is cool, but don’t expect a huge step forward!
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
Shantae is a cool platforming hero, and we enjoyed her latest adventure! This is a great 2D action game that lets you transform into different animals and beat down baddies with your ponytail! The game gives players a good challenge, and we liked figuring out how things fit together – quite often you need to revisit old areas to use new powers you’ve just unlocked! This is a particularly stunning looking game, and the script is full of LOL-worthy moments too!
