Mortal Kombat 11's Ultimate Edition is NetherRealm's finest hour polished up further for a new console generation.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon's switch to turn-based RPG combat and team-based tactics may bite off more than it can chew thanks to terrible difficulty spikes and ill-defined character progression, but it's still a breath of fresh air for the series.

It's shorter and familiar, but the first solo outing of Miles Morales in his own dedicated video game is nothing short of amazing.

A brilliant first step on the PS5 and a final hurrah for the PS4, Marvels Spider-Man: Miles Morales is spectacular.
