The Week In Games: Life Is A Highway

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

As we descend on the end of 2017 it’s time to take a moment and look back at all of the year’s great games. Fortunately, this week’s release schedule won’t distract you from doing that.

Another episode of Life Is Strange arrives this week, along with the latest slew of Switch ports. Nintendo’s handheld is getting some new games as well though, including Brawlout, the first platform fighter (read: Smash Bros-like) to come out on it. The Vita also continues to not go quietly into the new year as well with a handful of new games, my personal favorite being Xenon Valkyrie + (the more alone and obsolete Sony’s handheld becomes the more I fall in love with it for some reason).

In other words, plenty of time to catch up on all of those Game of the Year lists and see why everyone’s in love with games like Doki Doki Literature Club. Here’s everything else that’s coming out.
