New video games out this week:
“Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.” For fighting fans, there’ll be enough tweaks, fine tuning, new modes and new/returning downloadable characters to make this a worth update to last year’s “SFV.” Best of all, if you bought last year’s game, this one’s a free online upgrade. For everybody else, this is the version of “Street Fighter V” you should probably jump in on. Rated T for Teen. $40 for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
“Kirby Battle Royale.” I’ve always thought pink puffball Kirby was more a lover than a fighter, but this game is a full-on fighting game for 1-4 players across different matchup types. There’s also a single-player story in case you need to see how Kirby got so hardcore. Rated E-10+ for Everyone 10 and Older. $40 for Nintendo 3DS.
Also out this week: “The Vanishing of Ethan Carter” (Xbox One), “InnerSpace” (PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch), “Anamorphine” (PC, PS4), “Unleash” (PC), “Progeny VR” (PC), “Albert & Otto: The Adventure Begins” (PS4), “Zombie City” (PC), “Nightmare Boy” (Switch), “Energy Balance” (Switch), “Full Metal Furies” (Xbox One), “World to the West” (Switch), “Mutant Football League” (PS4, Xbox One), “Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker’s Memory” (PS4, PlayStation Vita), “VR Soccer ‘96” (PC), “Vesta” (PC, Xbox One).
Here’s a trailer for “Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition”:
