A few months after Platinum's overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign, we're finally getting the remaster of its Wii U cult classic The Wonderful 101. This Super Sentai-inspired adventure is like a cross between Bayonetta and Pikmin marked by Platinum's signature brand of action. If you missed The Wonderful 101 the first time it came around back in 2013, then now's your chance to finally experience it. Unfortunately, you will have to wait longer than expected to play the physical version, as the game won't hit actual store shelves until June. In Europe, the game won't arrive until July 3, but the digital version will launch as expected.

The massively popular Minecraft franchise is getting a new spin-off this month in the form of Minecraft: Dungeons, a Diablo-like isometric action game. Alongside up to three other players, you explore randomly-generated dungeons to fight monsters and secure piles of loot. Compared to other games in its genre, it lacks a specialized class system, instead allowing you to customize your character as you please without restriction. This level of freedom fits in line with the spirit of Minecraft, as does its cooperative play.

The upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a substantial remaster of the Wii original complete with enhanced visuals and revised controls as well as quality-of-life improvements to UI, camera control, navigation, and more. Because the game's original Wii version looked relatively dated even at launch, the visual upgrades on display here as significant and much more substantial than a typical remastered game. The game also includes an exclusive new epilogue chapter called Future Connected, which expands upon the events of the original. Releasing just before the 10th anniversary of its original Japanese debut, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition's launch on May 29 will most assuredly be the definitive time to dive into this RPG classic, especially if you've long put off doing so when it came stateside in 2011 and subsequently on 3DS four years later.
