New games releasing this week: September 18 – September 24

By Staff, Monday, 18 September 2017 02:30 GMT

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, NBA 2K18 and Project Cars 2 are just the start of what’s in store this week.

Sports season continues this week with the arrival of NBA 2K18, which we expect to continue the series tradition of selling enormously and setting the standard for basketball games.

In other kinds of sport, Project Cars 2 makes a bid for this year’s premiere racer, but Microsoft is dropping the Forza 7 demo to remind you it also has a horse in the r- wow, this is an appropriate place to use that cliche.

The biggest news otherwise is probably Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, which looks pretty special even without the X-Men. There are two other fighting games coming out for Switch, though – Dragonball Xenoverse 2 and Pokken Tournament DX.

In other genres, Season 2 of Minecraft: Story Mode comes to stores, and SteamWorld Dig 2 arrives. On the indie scene, the ultimate version of The Binding of Isaac is here (until the next one….?) and The Solus Project takes sci-fi survival to VR.
