Now Playing: Top New Game Releases On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week -- September 15-21, 2019

It's a good week to be a Nintendo Switch owner. This episode of New Releases takes a look at The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake, Puzzle Quest: The Legend Returns, and Castle Crashers Remastered--all coming to the hybrid handheld console. Those aren't the only remasters either--Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is also launching this week. Finally, the mischevious indie Untitled Goose Game is also on the way.

Castle Crashers Remastered -- September 17

Available on: Switch

No Caption Provided

The 2008 Xbox Live Arcade classic is out now on Xbox One, and this week Switch owners can enjoy the beat-'em-up action in four-player co-op or take each other on in the arena. This remaster includes the original game, plus all of its DLC, all running at 60 FPS. There's also a new mini-game called Back Off Barbarian.

Puzzle Quest: The Legend Returns -- September 19

Available on: Switch

No Caption Provided

For the uninitiated, Puzzle Quest is an RPG where you battle foes by playing a match-three puzzle game. Once you choose a class, you can cast spells and make attacks based on combinations of colored gems as you clear the board. The Legend Returns includes the original game and all previous expansions, plus a brand-new one titled Attack of the Golem Lord.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening -- September 20

Available on: Switch

No Caption Provided

This is a full-on remake of Link's Awakening on the Game Boy. While it offers the same story and dungeons across Koholint Island, there's also a completely fresh art style, reimagined soundtrack, and even a special dungeon editor. Tap an Amiibo, and you can unlock extra mini-games and chambers for that dungeon-builder. Tap the Link's Awakening Amiibo specifically, and you'll summon Shadow Link.

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered -- September 20

Available on: PS4, PC

No Caption Provided

Ni no Kuni's Studio Ghibli-inspired visuals were already impressive when the original released in 2010--the beloved studio actually animated the game's cinematic cut scenes--but the remaster somehow looks even better, running at 60 FPS. Otherwise it's the same RPG from nearly a decade ago. Speaking of which, the original Ni no Kuni (not the remaster) is also headed to Nintendo Switch on September 20.

Untitled Goose Game -- September 20

Available on: PC, Switch

No Caption Provided

As the name says, this game is about a goose, and that goose's mission is to bother the citizens of a small village. You'll do that by running around, flapping your wings, honking, grabbing items, and generally causing mischief. Oh, and this is a stealth game at its core. Why, what were you expecting?

More Coverage:

There's still more games to come this month. Next week, New Releases will shine the spotlight on some soccer with FIFA 20 and turn up the action with Code Vein and The Surge 2.
