Mario Tennis Aces week is upon us. Like many, I want to see my favorite Mushroom Kingdom friends absolutely annihilate a world tour of tennis players. But it’s not the only great thing coming out.


The time after E3 is always strange, and this year is no different. We’re getting some interesting releases like The Lost Child and Lost In Harmony alongside the slam dunks of Minecraft for the Switch and Mario’s tennis game. It’s a week where you’re safe to take a breath, see what’s coming out, or maybe even dig into the back catalog a little bit.

New Gundam Breaker is the big one this week for me. I LOVE Gundam Breaker 3 to death, and a proper US sequel without having to play jacked-up import prices for the Singaporeon version is fantastic.
