Top New Games Out This Week On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC -- July 8-14

This week you can revisit fan favorites like Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Warhammer: Vermintide 2, and enjoy a new adventure with Octopath Traveler.

Last week, New Releases proved that July does indeed have some video games to play. This week there are even more, although many of them are re-releases or ports. But if you never played Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on Wii U, here's your chance to try it on 3DS and Switch. The Switch is also getting a new JRPG with Octopath Traveler, while fellow JRPG Shining Resonance Refrain comes west. Meanwhile, 20XX makes its console debut, as does Warhammer: Vermintide 2.

Shining Resonance Refrain -- July 10

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

Shining Resonance is making its western debut as Shining Resonance Refrain, and it's bringing some new content to the current generation. Refrain Mode presents a totally separate "what if" side story, and you'll have two new party members to use in battle. As you might expect, you can totally date your party members too.

20XX -- July 17 (PS4, Switch) / July 11 (Xbox One)

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, Switch

No Caption Provided

If you just can't wait for the Mega Man X Legacy Collection, 20XX is here to fill the void. It's got tight platforming and big bosses, but the stages are all randomly generated. Permadeath is also a threat--if you die, that's it. Fortunately, heroes Nina and Ace can purchase upgrades to make each new run a little easier.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 -- July 11

Available on: Xbox One

No Caption Provided

Also making its console debut this week is Vermintide 2. Think Left 4 Dead, but the the hideous monsters of Warhammer instead of zombies. Each character can also specialize in different classes, so every player will find their role in battle. For you Game Pass subscribers, good news: Vermintide 2 will be included day-and-date on Microsoft's all-you-can-play service.

In the week's last enhanced re-release, Captain Toad is leaving behind the Wii U for an adventure on new platforms. The Switch version will let you play local co-op by sharing a pair of Joy-Cons, and you can analyze the isometric courses in stereoscopic 3D on 3DS. As for the courses themselves, this version of Treasure Tracker has new stages inspired by Super Mario Odyssey.

Switch owners are also getting a new JRPG experience this week with Octopath Traveler, which stars eight different protagonists, as you might have guessed from the title. The battle system also introduces a "boost" mechanic, where you can forego action in one round to double up your attacks on the next turn. Deep battle strategies and multiple heroes mean there's a lot to try with this one.
