Ace Com­bat 7: Skies Un­known

A re­turn to form for ev­ery­one’s favourite ar­cade flight sim se­ries. Take the lead dur­ing the Sec­ond Usean Con­ti­nen­tal War and blaze across the skies as elite fighter pi­lot Trig­ger. Weather plays a big part this time around and you’ll be able to con­ceal your­self within storm­clouds. Just don’t freeze up your en­gine, or, you know, get struck by light­ning.

Dead Or Alive 6

Koei Tecmo has of­fi­cially an­nounced a re­lease date for this beat ‘em up clas­sic. Ini­tially re­vealed dur­ing E3 this year, the se­ries will take a more re­al­is­tic and less sex­u­alised ap­proach than pre­vi­ous en­tries which is great di­rec­tion to be head­ing but still looks like it has a lit­tle way to go. In­flu­enced by MMA the com­bat will be more in­tense, too, with blood and sweat aplenty.

Jump Force

Soon you’ll be able to beat the liv­ing day­lights out of your favourite, or least favourite, manga char­ac­ters. With a huge ros­ter fea­tur­ing char­ac­ters from across the breadth of Sho­nen Jump fran­chises like

Dragon Ball, Naruto, Bleach and many more you’re bound to find some­one you want to pum­mel. You can even cre­ate your own char­ac­ter to join an al­ready su­per line-up.

Team Sonic Ra cing

After shar­ing the stage with other Sega leg­ends the lit­tle blue hedge­hog is get­ting a ded­i­cated rac­ing game, and only char­ac­ters from Sonic’s uni­verse will be mak­ing an ap­pear­ance. Tak­ing a dif­fer­ent spin on pre­vi­ous Sonic rac­ers, the fo­cus will be on co­op­er­a­tive play. Work­ing well as a team will nab you points and the team with the most points wins. So play nice.

On­imus ha Wa rlords

Xbox fans were only ever treated to the first

Onimusha back in 2002, so those fond of it will be happy to know that Cap­com is giv­ing the de­mon-slay­ing ac­tion game a new lease of life on the Xbox one with Onimusha

Warlords Re­mas­tered. It has a whole bunch of im­prove­ments on the orig­i­nal, in­clud­ing up­dated graph­ics, sound­track and that al­limpor­tant 16:9 as­pect ra­tio.

Monstrum

De­spite al­ready in­vad­ing the night­mares of thou­sands of peo­ple for the past three years, Team Junk­fish is look­ing to ter­rify some more by bring­ing pro­ce­du­rally gen­er­ated sur­vival hor­ror to the Xbox One. With your path and ex­pe­ri­ence never cer­tain, you’ll need to stay on your toes. This will be the per­fect game to share with oth­ers, ei­ther at home or stream­ing on­line.
