Now that summer is in full swing, releases are starting to slow down. It goes without saying, this weeks headliner is the highly anticipated Super Mario Maker 2. Joining it is another super game, Super Neptunia RPG, along with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night on Switch, Samurai Shodown, and the Yakuza spin off, Judgment.
If you didn’t get to play Super Mario Maker on the Wii U or 3DS, it was a delightful experience. Players had the tools to make some truly impressive and fascinating levels, something that has only been further enhanced by the sequel. The nice thing isn’t just the difficulty that matches what was said about Super Mario Bros. 2, it’s having something that caters to everyone, with the resources needed to bring your dream or nightmare to life.
For those looking for something that sounds similar but is totally different, Super Neptunia RPG is here to help. The simplistic nature makes it easy to get into but it doesn’t quite have the depth or resources found in major RPGs. At best it’s a good RPG if you want to look at cute girls, with it having some frustrating points. Fans will love it, where as newcomers might want to be a bit more cautious.
On a high note, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night releases on Switch. This fantastic game, which earned an editor’s choice award, is an amazing example of how good Kickstarter can be. It delivers on what it hopes, with plenty more to come in the future.
Finally, we have Samurai Shodown and Judgment, two games that only have one thing in common, ‘tricky’ spelling. If you didn’t play the demo for Samurai Shodown, it’s a more technical fighter that has no accessibility for button mashers. As for Judgment, it’s a good example of how to do a spin off. It feels like Yakuza, while also having its own style.
