New Pokémon Snap comes incredibly close to being the perfect sequel, but it falls just short of attaining that mantle.

If you’re interested in RPGs or the Trails series, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV is absolutely the game for you.
If you’re looking for a fun time looting and shooting, and don’t mind skimping a little on the trappings, than this is definitely worth giving a chance to.
Monster Hunter Rise is nothing short of a must have game, with the quality of life additions to traversal and movement elevating the experience.
The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos is an excellent murder mystery that held my attention from beginning to end.
Bravely Default II is almost everything I want from a modern turn based RPG.
There is nothing else quite like it and beyond a couple of small quality of life issues, Loop Hero is an amazing experience and one you should absolutely get on board with.
If you’ve been eagerly awaiting more of The Outer Worlds and the Switch is your only choice, then you’ll find something here, but otherwise I’d suggest checking this out on other platforms.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury provides both a slightly improved version of a past game and a new, fresh experience in one package.
The short length, relative lack of difficulty and couple of mechanical niggles stop it from being great, but if you’re looking for a new 2D action-adventure game, you won’t be disappointed.
There are a couple of shortfalls, and the lack of a confidant system is a big hole to fill, but if you’re a fan of Persona, then Persona 5 Strikers is absolutely the game for you.
Control Ultimate Edition on PS5 is the definitive console edition of the game so far. On top of the already fantastic story and mechanics, the addition of raytracing, and the exclusive DualSense support elevate it even further.
If you’re a fan of SaGa or classic RPGs and don’t mind playing some early Gameboy games, you’ll get a kick out of this collection.
If you’re after a new linear narrative adventure game set in a creepy world to play, you’ll likely enjoy The Medium, but if you’re hoping for a more involved experience, I’d suggest skipping it.
Overall, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a great puzzle game to fill your time with.
Overall, Immortals Fenyx Rising is a fun, yet unexceptional experience.
Overall, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales feels like Marvel’s Spider-Man’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
While there are plenty of rough edges and frustrations here, these are all somewhat balanced out by the cost of Bright Memory on Xbox Series X; AU$11.95.
Overall, The Touryst on Xbox Series X is a fun and engaging game that makes use of the next-generation console’s power by super-sampling for a super clear image and near instantaneous load times.
Overall, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope on Xbox One X is a fantastic improvement on Man of Medan, although it still falls somewhat short of the utterly amazing Until Dawn.
