Top New Games Out On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week -- June 23-29 2019

You can get your hands on Super Mario Maker 2 and Judgment this week.

With E3 2019 wrapped, New Releases is back to its normal schedule. It's a solid week for Nintendo Switch, as Super Mario Maker 2 and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night both come to the portable console. The PS4 gets an exclusive of its own with the investigation-filled Judgment, and there's another mystery to solve in The Sinking City. Finally, weapon-based fighting fans can get their fix with the Samurai Shodown reboot.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night -- June 25

Available on: Switch

If Bloodstained reminds you of Castlevania, there's a good reason: this action game comes from ex-Castlevania boss Koji Igarashi. The Kickstarter-funded project takes cues from Symphony of the Night, with a big castle to explore, monsters to slay, and powerful magic to acquire. It's already out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but thanks to the portability of the Switch version, you can take the adventure on the go.

Judgment -- June 25

Available on: PS4

Much like Bloodstained, Judgment might remind you of another game. In this case, Yakuza comparisons are totally apt, since this spin-off is set in a lot of the same locations. It even uses the same combat system, letting you swap between styles during the fight. But it's not about the Japanese mob; Judgment sees detective Takayuki Yagami solving a series of murders.

Samurai Shodown -- June 25

After nearly a decade out of the spotlight, the long-running fighting series is back with this reboot. For the uninitiated, the Shodown games have a tricky battle system wherein characters go down in a single hit. There are plenty of returning fighters plus some new contenders here, each with their own weapon style for you to master.

Private investigator Charles Reed has come to the fishing town of Oakmont to look into a series of strange occurrences.

Super Mario Maker 2 -- June 28

Available on: Switch

There's almost too much to talk about with this Super Mario Maker sequel. You can build custom levels with a ton of new tools, and the story mode introduces some Mario mechanics you might not be familiar with, like the Angry Sun, Banzai Bills, and new level themes. What's more, you can take on all the courses online cooperatively and competitively.

More Coverage:

Believe it or not, it's already time to start talking about the big video games of July. Next week, New Releases will take a look at the month ahead, which is home to the likes of Fire Emblem: Three Houses and the next Final Fantasy XIV expansion, Shadowbringers.

@Sepewrath: I'm getting a physical copy from Best Buy for $47.99 + tax using my GCU, but I've also seen it on Mass Genie for $42.
