ACE COMBAT 7: SKIES UNKNOWN
Whether it’s in the air or on the ground, combat is the name of the game this month
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.
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.
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.
