After an action-packed week at E3 we’re gradually getting back to normal here at TSA Towers. To kick things off we have our regular list of releases, this week serving up a healthy bit of variety to cure those post-E3 blues.
Air Conflicts: Vietnam | PS4 | Friday
If a severe critical panning wasn’t enough, Air Conflicts: Vietnam is set to return this week, exclusively on PlayStation 4. Throughout the course of the game, players will man a variety of planes and bombers as they tear through a campaign based on the Vietnam war.
Hopefully the series has improved since Air Conflicts: Secret Wars though, in truth, they look almost identical. Furthermore the game now has to contend with War Thunder, Gaijin’s free-to-play war plane MMO which has recently had a ground warfare expansion.
Atelier Rorona Plus | PS3, Vita | Friday
This week’s Japanese import may raise a few eyebrows. By now we’re all used to the concept of HD remasters and porting old games to newer platforms. Atelier Rorona Plus, however, is an updated version of game that released on the same platform less than four years ago.
Although some will call foul play, this re-release is clearly targeted towards existing fans of the series. Plus will include updated character models and visual performance as well as new systems and mechanics to reflect the latest game in the series, Atelier Meruru. Throw in cross-save functionality and bonus content and it may not sound like a cheap cash-grab after all.
How To Train Your Dragon 2 | Xbox 360 , PS3 , Wii , 3DS , Wii U | Friday
MotoGP 2014 | Xbox 360 , PS3 , PC , Vita , PS4 | Friday
Developer Milestone is set to make its current-gen debut this week with MotoGP 2014.
Boasting a new sound and graphics engine, this year’s instalment is shaping up to be the best, offering all of the teams, riders, and circuits from this year’s MotoGP World Championship.
EA Sports UFC | Xbox One, PS4 | Friday
Having originally turned down the offer, EA is now helming the UFC video game franchise after the fall of previous publisher THQ.
Exclusive to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, EA Sports UFC will champion the firm’s Ignite Engine when it hits platforms later this week. Expect a full suite of features and a gameplay model that straddles the line between the original THQ series and EA’s own MMA-focused title.
