After 15 years of absence, Mario Strikers: Battle League returns with a competitive approach. The best part is its multiplayer mode and deep mechanics, which make every match a challenge. It's a shame that its content is sparse at launch day but it's a very fun and frantic game that can improve with future updates.

The House of The Dead: Remake bets on nostalgia and tries to renew itself while leaving its arcade essence intact. Sadly, controls are not precise and makes it frustrating in a short time. If you overcome this huge problem, its new art direction that gives the impression of being an old game and adjust to its shortcomings, The House of The Dead: Remake becomes fun to deliver you a simple and action-packed experience.

8.2 / 10.0 - Triangle Strategy
Mar 4, 2022

Triangle Strategy has the seal of approval of Tomoya Asano, producer of other RPGs that have stood out for having a special touch. This tactical RPG sweetens the look for its aesthetics and draws us in little by little, in a drama full of tragic overtones. The robust story and its battle system are its strong points, although the exploration is practically nil. The narrative is dense and at times very slow, which make the battles feel like a prize for which we waited a long time.

The King of Fighters XV is a solid and very fast fighting game that tests your skills. It shows how such a long-lived saga can evolve without losing its essence. Although it offers little content for casual players, the graphical upgrade, new mechanics, and rollback netcode makes the difference. All these changes are noticeable and put the franchise in the right direction.

Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden combines a classic JRPG with a board game. This format works naturally, however, turns tedious by random battles and the way you traverse the board. Expect a Yoko Taro-style story that takes advantage of random elements to give it a special touch.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus proves that the franchise can evolve and experiment for the better. It's a solid game that breaks the mold, and despite its visual simplicity, it doesn't detract from Game Freak's attempt to revamp a classic. Pokémon Legends: Arceus could have been better, but it is an important step towards the future of the franchise.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is a free to play game designed for those who have been active in the card game for years and are looking for a space to measure themselves against other duelists from around the world. It's a deep game, with over 10,000 cards and updated rules. It's also addictive and a lot of fun, but less experienced players will struggle as they adjust to competitive play.

7.4 / 10.0 - Windjammers 2
Jan 25, 2022

DotEmu does it again with Windjammers 2, an arcade experience in his purest form. While the game is dynamic and works great online thanks to rollback netcode, the lack of content, modes to play or progression can discourage newer players that expect modern elements.

The Hinokami Chronicles is a fighter arena with a poor character roster at the time of its release, and an unorganic story mode. You will be forced to finish it only to see the cutscenes and unlock the characters, instead of exploring battle systems. But not everything is disappointing, as the art direction is incredible, with special attacks taken directly from the anime, and the inclusion of the original music is greatly appreciated.

NEO: The World Ends With You is Square Enix's bid to revive a game that achieved cult status. Unfortunately, this sequel does not dare to take risks and, consequently, it is not very endearing. With a slow start, after so much pressing buttons you will question whether to continue the adventure, fortunately, the pace of the game improves over time and the charisma of its characters will make you continue to the end.

Guilty Gear -Strive- has the opportunity to establish itself as one of the best fighting games today. Its systems are dynamic and offensive-oriented, which results in spectacular and aggressive fights that exploit technical fundamentals in battle. At the same time, it invites new players with simple and easy to understand commands, however, it fails to captivate them in the long run. Guilty Gear -Strive- shy away from perfection as there is unbalance and feels incomplete.

8.7 / 10.0 - Scarlet Nexus
Jun 24, 2021

Scarlet Nexus shines for a simple but very complete and fun battle system, as well as having an organic concept that convinces. Its slow pace of the narrative and lack of exploration make the experience somewhat tiresome, however its well-developed story will keep you tuned until the end.

7 / 10.0 - Layers of Fear 2
May 20, 2021

After years of waiting, Layers of Fear 2 comes to Nintendo Switch to provoke anguish, fear and desolation. Bloober Team's effort is noticeable in this port that is faithful to the original with some shortcomings, with the option to play wherever you want.

8.5 / 10.0 - Persona 5 Strikers
Feb 24, 2021

Persona 5 Strikers is a pleasant surprise that renews the way games in the musou style are made and directs it towards the RPG genre. It may arrive without much unbridled action and spectacular movements, but integrates an element of strategy, and character development with a well-paced story. In all, it's an outstanding teenage road story that breaks the mold. We have no doubt Persona 5 fans will enjoy it from start to finish.
