Top New Games Out This Month On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC -- September 2018

This month's highlights include Dragon Quest 11, Spider-Man, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Life Is Strange 2, and FIFA 19.

September is jam-packed with games, and New Releases is taking a wide look at the month overall. This episode is going international, with Dragon Quest XI getting a worldwide release after launching in Japan last year and FIFA 19 bringing more action to football fans around the world. Meanwhile, Shadow of the Tomb Raider sends Lara Croft down to South America, and Life Is Strange 2 sees a pair of brothers journeying to Mexico. Finally, Marvel's Spider-Man is here to represent the USA.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age -- September 4

This month, Dragon Quest 11 is bringing its traditional RPG journey to territories outside Japan (though the future Nintendo Switch release date is yet to be announced). It features the standard turn-based gameplay of its predecessors, but unlike most of the those games, you initiate battles by colliding with enemies in the overworld--no random encounters here. Still, you're going to want to train your party if you hope to defeat the impending darkness overtaking the world.
