This week's episode of New Releases is ready to throw down, whether it's in the squared circle with WWE 2K20 or the Nintendo Switch port of Skullgirls: 2nd Encore. This week is also home to two highly anticipated AAA releases: The Outer Worlds and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It's also time to start getting spooky with the MediEvil remake.

WWE 2K20 -- October 22

This year's wrestling game features Bayley, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch, the Four Horsewomen of the WWE. It's also the first game to feature a female storyline, alongside the usual male-focused campaign. Last year's fan-favorite 2K Towers mode is back too.

You can probably already tell from the screenshot above, but Skullgirls is known for its gorgeous hand-drawn animation. Each of the game's 14 fighters have a unique look, personality, and moveset. The Switch version lets you battle others online of course, but you can also fight your friends locally using a single pair of Joy-Cons.

This isn't a remaster of the 2007 classic--it's a full-on reboot. You'll see familiar characters like Captain Price, but they're part of a totally new campaign that ties in more closely to the game's other co-op and multiplayer modes. Speaking of multiplayer, there's a big emphasis on tactics with this game, including a Realism Mode that shuts off your HUD.

This week's other big shooter is an RPG. The Outer Worlds comes from Obsidian, best known nowadays for Fallout: New Vegas, hence all the "Fallout in space" comparisons the game keeps getting. But The Outer Worlds sets itself apart from Fallout by letting you explore multiple planets, each one dominated by mega-corporations. There's also a flaw system, which allows your character to actually develop special perks if they keep injuring themselves in various ways.

MediEvil-- October 25

Much like Sir Daniel Fortesque rising from his grave, this game has been rebuilt from the ground up. It might feel like the same PS1 platformer, but this remake sports a fancy coat of 4K paint if you've got a PS4 Pro and a capable TV.

We've got one more batch of October games coming up. Next week, New Releases will take a look at Luigi's Mansion 3 on Nintendo Switch. The handheld console is also getting its own ports of Resident Evil 5 and 6.
