While it is wildly different from Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Digimon Survive makes a strong and compelling case for itself on its own merits. Fans of Digimon looking for a strong story, or fans of visual novels, will find the game to be a treat.
Demon Slayer - Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Hinokami Chronicles is a surprisingly well done port of a pretty good game. Given all that The Hinokami Chronicles ends up accomplishing, hopefully this heralds the start of many more high quality games based on the IP to come.
Until we get an actual Persona 5 Arena, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax on PS4, Steam, and Switch is the definitive Persona fighting game experience, and a damn well appealing product on its own merits, even stripped away of its Persona trappings.
Disgaea 6 isn't the total misfire fans were afraid it would be, and in spite of several stumbles, still comes out as a solid, compelling game that will hopefully serve as a foundation to better, more fleshed out games in the future.
Taken for what it is, Tokyo 2020 works well enough to carve a niche for itself as a surprisingly fun and easy to pick-up multiplayer game for families and parties.
Ridiculously charming and extremely relaxing, New Pokemon Snap provides the most realized and fleshed out window into the Pokemon world yet, also delivering a robust and entertaining game that makes good on the original title's potential remarkably well in the process.
Oddworld: Soulstorm is a very good and very compelling game, which veers on the verge of being an all time classic so often, you can't help but be angry at it for not following through. Its stumbles do not take away from all that the game achieves, and just how well it achieves it, and Soulstorm is without a doubt the most rounded out, best playing, and most accessible game in the long running Oddworld series.
Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is a surprisingly great modern rendition of the classic franchise that manages to be more accessible while never once letting up on the soul crushing challenge that has come to be synonymous with the series.
Persona 5 Strikers is not only the best spin off for the series to date, it's a surprisingly great game on its own merits, and worthy of the "Persona 5-2" marketing it has received. Newcomers and fans alike will find a great game to enjoy here.
While none of these games should be anyone's entry into the franchise, Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 Remastered are modernized and updated enough to not feel too out of place next to the more modern installments in the series, for those who are eager to see Kiryu Kazuma's story through to the end.
