Rounding out the month we have two new releases before February is upon us. As in previous weeks things are looking a bit sparse, especially with only two releases. Next month looks to be shaping up however with the likes of Donkey Kong, Thief, and Toukiden just around the corner.
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition | Xbox One, PS4| Friday
First up is the return of iconic gaming gal Lara Croft in Tomb Raider’s “Definitive Edition”. Essentially a re-do of a reboot, the folks at Crystal Dynamics have gone back to last year’s stellar action adventure, giving the game a lick of polish for its current-gen debut. We recently revisited the game in our PlayBack series, and took a look at the new version earlier this morning.
The Definitive Edition will come bundled with a trove of downloadable goodness replete with both single player content and a healthy spread of maps for online play.
Reportedly those torn between the PS4 and Xbox One version should opt for the former which runs at 60FPS, double that of its console rival.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst |360, PS3 | Friday
Another week, another anime brawler, this time with everybody’s favourite adolescent ninja, Naruto. Over-indulgent game title aside, Full Burst is a revision of Ninja Storm 3 set for last-gen platforms. You can read our review of the original game here.
Players will get to grips with a refined, “more profound” combat system that makes some adjustments to brawler series. With that said, on-screen it still looks insane with players flying around each arena firing off some impressive-looking moves. Speaking of looks, the game has received a minor touch-up and also come packaged with DLC, including costumes and an exclusive character.
