This Week’s New Releases 1/20 – 1/26; Resident Evil 2, Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal and More

After a massive surprise and strong E3 showing, Resident Evil 2 is back to scare fans. With improved visuals, the survival horror elements fans love and so much more, it is a title that is hard to not be excited for. If scary things don’t excite you, there is always Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal.

With it being the second remake of the original entry in the series, Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal tries to wash away the past and revamp the future. This makes it an easy way for newcomers to get into it, similar to how Neptunia Re;birth is completely different from the original, yet retains the charm of the original game. If nothing else, it’s another Dynasty Warriors game for players to find the joy in the rather simple things.

Joining these titles is the next entry in Life is Strange 2. Taking place after a rather tragic event, the next chapter looks to give the kids some new challenges to overcome. In regards to both the world around them and how they interact with each other. Considering the first chapter set up a much grander experience, it will be exciting to see if it goes in the same direction of the first game or if it will get lost in pointless chatter and seemingly hard, but ultimately pointless, side stories.
