As the E3 hype train reaches top speed, things are looking a little sparse on this week’s release slate. Thankfully, the small cluster of game poised to launch are definitely worth a bit of fanfare, with three returning franchises. First out of the blocks we have The Elder Scrolls Online finally coming to consoles. This is followed later in the week by a somewhat barren looking PSN Store update, along with Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure on the Nintendo eShop. To round things off, we end the week on a high with LEGO Jurassic World.
- The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited [PS4 | XB1]
- Megaman Battle Network 3 Blue [3DS]
- Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure [3DS]
- LEGO Jurassic World [PS3 | 360 | XB1 | PS4 | 3DS | PSV | Wii U | PC]
Having recently celebrated its first anniversary, The Elder Scrolls Online will finally make the leap from PC to current gen consoles. Releasing on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, “Tamriel Unlimited” carries over everything from the original, bar those pesky monthly fees. Despite its MMO trappings, TESO feels very much like a traditional Elder Scrolls game, from its familiar settings and inhabitants down to its optional first person camera.
At the helm of this week’s Nintendo eShop update we have Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure. Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS, this latest instalment brings the Tetris-like puzzler to a new generation of players. Match coloured pills to score points and cure diseases in classic mode, or mix things up with two new variants.
LEGO Jurassic World wasn’t revealed all that long ago, yet with the film about to release this week, we now have a video game adaptation of the whole film series to keep us busy. As with previous movie tie-ins from developer Traveller’s Tales, expect plenty of puzzle solving and humour as you relive your favourite moments from the Jurassic Park anthology. With over 100 playable characters, 20 dinosaurs, and an open world to explore, it’s bound to be just what LEGO fans have come to expect.
