The Week In Games: The Master Detective Returns

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: The Master Detective Returns

It’s time to go back to Gotham. Who else is going to solve all those Riddler boxes and quick time events?


There’s a lot of other small stuff coming out this week, including ports of indie games. Miss Graceful Explosion Machine on the Switch? Well now you can play it on PS4! Miss Elminage Original on the PSP? Well, thank the powers that be, you can now play it on 3DS. This marks the second week in a row that a PSP game was revived but sadly (tragically!) not for the Vita.

I really haven’t seen anything in-depth about Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice since the animation tech stuff way back. Any word or impressions floating around?
