Highlights this week include: Wavetale (release), Crisis Core—Final Fantasy VII—Reunion (release), River City Girls 2 (release)
Wavetale (Thunderful), Game, Digital Only
Surf the waters of a submerged city! Fight gigantic sea monsters, save your neighbors and uncover the secrets hidden under the surface. Explore the open sea and the decaying archipelago of Strandville in Wavetale, a story-driven action-adventure game introducing you to fed-up fishermen, secretive hermits—and maybe a pirate or two. Traverse calm waters and surging waves as Sigrid, a young girl who befriends a mysterious shadow that provides her with the power to walk on water. Speed through the waves, swing yourself from housetops with your net, and defeat monstrous enemies to save the citizens of the islands. All with a little help from the shadows down below—and your cranky grandmother.

The tale of Zack’s dreams and honor—the legacy that connects him to Cloud—is revealed in full in this grand saga that has broken the limits of an HD remaster.

Lil Gator Game (Playtonic Friends), Game, Digital Only
The island is your playground. There’s a buddy atop every hill in this open-world, movement-focused adventure and they all seem to need help! Bop cardboard baddies, brave serene hills and forests, and scale sheer rocks that only a kid would dare! Joyful Exploration. Explore a lovingly crafted island full to the brim with areas to discover, friends to make and joy to be had. Each area of the island brings unique quests and characters to meet. Glide through the mountain tops and drop in on the Theatre Troupe kids, swing your stick sword through the forest with the Prep schoolers or find the “Cool Kids” down in the Creaklands. With plenty more areas to discover, there’s no knowing who you might run into.

Two Point Campus—Two Point Campus: Space Academy (Sega)
Welcome aboard space cadets, as we boldly go to Two Point County’s Space Academy! The Two Point space program is far, far away from its golden years, when rockets lit up the news and astronauts were semi-famous, like B-list actors you don’t even recognise. And now the County has opened the doors to its fledgling Space Academy, Two Point needs your help on the front-lines of galactic defence, inter-dimensional diplomacy, promoting the space industry and preparing the County for foreign life. The aliens are coming; look busy.
We’ve also discovered a cluster of those cheesy space rocks caught in the County’s orbit. So we need you to set up Two Point’s first out-of-County campus, source alien students from all around the galaxy, and teach them everything we know about us. Conditions may be harsh out here, but we’re sitting on a gold mine. So dust off your moon boots, set phasers to fun, and get your students to reach for the stars—and their wallets.
