Top New Games Releasing On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Month - May 2020

It's a good month to dance, sing, and save the world.

A new month is here, which means New Releases is taking a wide look at the biggest games May has to offer. There's a lot of variety, as the vocaloid crowd can get down with Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix, and Platinum Games fans can relive a cult-classic action game with The Wonderful 101: Remastered. That's not the only re-release on the horizon, either: both Star Wars Episode I: Racer and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition also launch in May. Last but not least, Minecraft Dungeons is ready to be explored.

Star Wars Episode I: Racer -- May 12

Available on: Switch

The racing game you might have played a long, long time ago is back. It's got modern controls, but you'll still be racing across the same tracks as Anakin Skywalker, Sebulba, and more. There's no online multiplayer, unfortunately, but you can race others via splitscreen or the Switch's LAN connection. PS4 players will sadly have to wait a bit longer, as that version of the game has been delayed.

The latest in Miku's rhythm game series is (mega) mixing things up. You can play through her songs with standard button presses in Arcade Mode or use the Switch's Joy-Con motion controls in Mix Mode. There's also a fun T-shirt maker for dressing up Miku with your personal designs. The Eshop demo is available now if you want a little appetizer.

The Wonderful 101: Remastered -- May 19

Available on: PS4, PC, Switch

Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Platinum Games' cult classic is back, with an improved framerate, graphics, and controls. For those who missed out on the game the first time, here's the gist: 100 superheroes can fuse together into giant fists, guns, and more to leap through levels, solve puzzles, and beat bosses. Physical copies of the remaster are unfortunately delayed due to coronavirus, but the May 19 launch date is locked in for the digital release.

Minecraft Dungeons -- May 26

It might have the look of Minecraft, but this spin-off is not about resource gathering and crafting. Instead, it gives you randomly generated dungeons to explore as you solve puzzles and fight box-shaped bad guys. There are no classes here since you can choose any gear you want, and you can explore with friends in four-player co-op.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition -- May 29

Available on: Switch

Xenoblade Chronicles is a cult-classic RPG on 3DS, and now Switch owners are getting a chance to experience the story. If you've already played the original, there's still something fresh for you too thanks to a new epilogue. Of course, the graphics and music have been greatly improved too.

More Coverage:

May is just getting started, and there are plenty more games to come. In fact, we didn't even get to some of the other games launching this week: John Wick Hex is out now on PS4, and Void Bastards comes to Nintendo Switch on May 7.

I'm surprised Saints Row The Third: Remastered wasn't mentioned, but I guess the amount of enraged comments of it's Epic Store exclusivity would be pretty bad lol 😁

My next release to play will be Command & Conquer Remastered which is out June 5th. I am a huge fan of the early ones, especially Red Alert and it's Aftermath / Retaliation expansion. I am also pleased they added a skirmish mode to the first, despite the campaign being fun, skirmish in the original will now give it that much needed replayability that it once lacked.

I may decide to pick up Saint Row The Third Remaster when it goes on offer, as £35 is a tad high for my liking 🙂

I refuse to believe SW podracer will look as pad as it does in that video. No resolution boost? No way, no how.

@just1mohr: You can just play it on PC where it was actually good.

@afromakka: I'll talk about that one in a few weeks when the date is closer! I try to cap this show off at 5 games each time.

Wonderful lineup for Switch owners, I didn’t play any Xenoblade Chronicles yet, I think I’ll start with this one.
