Prepare for puzzles, parties, and classics from the past.

The Talos Principle 2

If you’re looking to test your wits and ponder the purpose of (robot) humanity, look no further.

This co-operative musical adventure sees you working solo or with friends to complete outrageous challenges to the beat. Stop a DJ eggplant, feed beans to a summoning ritual, and get even weirder in time to the music as you aim to overthrow the maniacal King Ferdinand.

Super Mario RPG

Release date: November 17

Platforms: Switch

At long last the cries for a remaster of Nintendo’s classic turn-based RPG have been silenced. Mario and friends from the Mushroom Kingdom team up with new allies like Mallow and Geno the puppet in order to recover seven star fragments which have been scattered across the land. While the graphics have been fully updated, the remake retains the original’s unique visual charm. Combat has had a few upgrades too, but you'll still need to master timed inputs to add extra damage to your attacks.
