It’s a slow week for new releases, so a really good port of a Wii U Game of the Year nominee/winner, and some stand-alone DLC are our highlights of the week.
SHOVEL KNIGHT (PS3, PSVita, PS4)
The Playstation port of the Game of the Year Nominee, Shovel Knight places you in the role of the titular character as he attempts to defeat an evil enchantress and her minions, while saving his lost love. This port adds a special boss battle against God of War’s Kratos.
ASSASSIN’S CREED CHRONICLES: CHINA (PS4, XBOX ONE)
Taking place in 1526 during the fall of the Ming Dynasty, you play as Shao Jun, the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood, returning to her homeland with a vendetta in this 2.5D side-scroller which will be the first in a new trilogy.
