New Releases highlights some of the top games releasing each week. This episode has a lot of variety: Skater XL for the skateboard kids, Ageless for the puzzle solvers, and Fairy Tail for the Shonen Jump fans. Did you miss out on the original Destroy All Humans? Good news, the remake is on its way. Lastly, Xbox One gamers get their own Yakuza Kiwami 2 port this week.
Destroy All Humans! — July 28
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC
This is a remake of the original Destroy All Humans from 2005. Once again, you’ll be stepping into the space boots of alien invader Crypto as he extracts DNA from the residents of a Midwestern town, using all types of alien weapons and gadgets. This remake includes content cut from the original game, too.
Skater XL — July 28
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch
Skater XL is all about control, letting you choose how you move your feet and kick the board for each trick–just note that you do need a controller to play it on PC. It’s full of real-world skate parks and skaters, but you can also pull off sick tricks with your own custom character.
Ageless — July 28
Available on: PC, Switch
Ageless puts you in the shoes of Kiara, whose magical bow fires arrows that send their targets forward and backward in time. You’ll have to age and de-age plants and animals to solve each of the game’s puzzles. There are secret challenges to overcome along your journey, too.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 — July 30
Available on: Xbox One
Kiwami 2 is a remake of the original Yakuza 2 with improved combat mechanics and all-new content focused on secondary protagonist Goro Majima. Of course, you’ll spend plenty of time with series staple Kazuma Kiryu, too. Game Pass subscribers can jump right in on day one.
Fairy Tail — July 30 (PC), July 31 (PS4, Switch)
Available on: PS4, PC, Switch
The Shonen Jump anime/manga series is getting a turn-based RPG. Your goal is to build up the top magic guild, and you’ve got 16 fan-favorite characters to help you pull it off. Expect to battle plenty of powerful rival magicians along the way.
That wraps up the month of July, but next week New Releases will take a wide look at August. The new month is home to some big comebacks like Microsoft Flight Simulator and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition.
