The Week In Games: Summer Things

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Summer Things

Stranger Things season 3 is almost here and next week, to coincide with the new season, a game based on the popular show launches on all major platforms. Will Barb return? (Probably not.)


Speaking of strange(r) things, if you scan through this list, you might notice something odd. In the year 2019, we have a WiiU game coming out. According to Nintendo’s official website, Horror Stories is coming out next week for the Wii U. It seems to have originally been a 3DS game and is now being ported to Wii U. Why? I don’t know.

Beyond Stranger Things 3 and Horror Stories, this is a fairly quiet week. Some ports are coming to the Switch, like Red Faction: Guerilla and What Remains Of Edith Finch. The cool looking Sea Of Solitude is coming out next week too. And for FFXIV fans, the new expansion, Shadowbringers, hits on July 2 for PS4 and PC.
