This might be the first episode of New Releases containing zero full-priced games, so your wallet won’t hurt as much if you decide to pick up a few of this week’s big games. Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible lair is mixing things up with a different style of gameplay, while Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a return to form for the series. Killer Queen Black is a revamped version of the arcade cult classic, and Indivisible is combining action-RPG mechanics with platforming. Meanwhile, PS4 gets an exclusive this week with Concrete Genie.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair — October 8

2017’s Yooka-Laylee was a 3D platformer inspired by the Banjo-Kazooie series, featuring many of the same developers. The sequel, however, is more like Donkey Kong Country, with 2.5D levels to conquer. They’re all connected by an overworld with its own set of puzzles to solve and secrets to uncover.

Indivisible might remind you of Skullgirls, and that’s because it’s made by the same team, using its signature hand-drawn art. The world of Indivisible is inspired by multiple cultures and mythologies, and it combines platforming with strategic RPG battles. How you arrange your party is key to winning each fight.

This is the home version of the arcade cult classic, where two teams compete for victory in one of three ways. You can win by collecting enough berries, riding the snail to the goal, or killing the enemy queen enough times. For the first time, you can take the competition online.
