Top New Games Out On Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week -- October 14-20

This week you can go to space with Starlink: Battle for Atlas and return to earth with SoulCalibur 6.

We're about halfway through October, and the new game releases haven't slowed down one bit. This week's big titles let you duke it out with weapons in SoulCalibur 6 or settle things on the court in NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. You can also assemble spaceships in Starlink: Battle for Atlas or build you own custom minifigure in Lego DC Super-Villains. Last but certainly not least, Nintendo Switch fans can finally get their hands on Dark Souls Remastered.

Lego DC Super-Villains -- October 16

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

The Lego games are all about solving puzzles, building up and tearing down Lego constructions, and collecting studs, but this time you'll do it all as the bad guys. Well, "bad" is a relative term here. After the Justice League disappears, the new Justice Syndicate that rises in its place doesn't seem to be led by very noble heroes...

Starlink is part space combat, part planet exploration, and part toys-to-life. You can swap out your pilot, ship body, wings, and weapons on the fly, choosing the best gear for the task at hand. There are plenty of missions to complete, and the Nintendo Switch version offers some exclusive ones starring the Star Fox crew.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 -- October 16

With the power of 2K sports developers behind it, Playgrounds 2 is bringing tons of new players to the court. There are more courts too, plus better dribbling and rebounding systems and four-player online multiplayer. Developer Saber Interactive also plans to add more classic NBA names to the game post-launch.

SoulCalibur VI -- October 19

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

The soul still burns, and the latest SoulCalibur game returns to the events of the first game, making this something of a reboot. It also introduces a new Reversal Edge Mechanic, slowing down the battle and giving you a chance to block or counterattack. This game's guest character is a pretty big deal too: Geralt of Rivia, last seen in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Dark Souls Remastered -- October 19

It's finally time for Switch owners to journey through Lordran. This remaster contains a souped-up version of the original game and its Artorias of the Abyss expansion. It also includes some quality-of-life improvements, but don't expect them to actually make the game any easier. You can pick up the Knight Solaire Amiibo the same day too.

That's all for this week, but October still has more games to come. On the next episode of New Releases, we'll get moving with Just Dance 2019. Oh, and there's a little game called Red Dead Redemption 2 coming soon. Maybe you've heard of it.
