September hasn’t run short of quality games to offer which is particularly surprising given the extensive library of releases we’ve already witnessed in 2017. GamerNow’s list of awesome games to check out this spectacular September will definitely reduce the time you spend scratching your head or equivocating what games are good for you.
The Knack series has always been clinically criticised for its lack of depth and subpar gameplay that prevents the series from joining the ranks of bigger, more popular titles in the same genre. Arguably, Sony has stepped up its game a notch and refined gameplay, making Knack 2 more enjoyable to play. The action-platformer is a PS4 exclusive that offers single-player and co-op modes for players to make use of. Participate in engaging puzzles, fun-to-play combat and a little adventure that almost all casual gamers can appreciate.
What’s more, there is a free demo you can check out on the PlayStation Store right now!
Just a day after Knack 2 was launch, Destiny 2 pulls back gamers – or guardians – to a land of mass destruction in the sequel to a stellar first-person shooter game by Bungie. The game is available on PS4 and Xbox One as an online-only experience and can be bought from here.
Monster Hunter Stories
September 8th marked the localization of a spin-off from the Monster Hunter series in the form of a kawaii RPG by Marvelous (and published by Capcom of course). Nintendo is a beast at doing one thing and that is producing fantastic RPGs on its handheld systems. The game is a 3DS-exclusive that displays the franchise in a new light. Fans of the Pokemon series might find something they really enjoy.
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony
The train of sequels rages on September 26 as Danganronpa V3 gets a western release. For all visual novel fans out there, this game – and the entire series – is definitely worth playing. Spike Chunsoft is a developer that seldom disappoints. This is the first time a Danganronpa game will be available for the PS4. Discounting Danganronpa 1 2 Reload of course which were mere ports from the PS Vita. Killing Harmony will come at a hefty price tag of US$60 for the PS4, PS Vita and Windows.
EA capitalizes on last Champions League’s title win to offer football and FIFA fans another glamorous title: FIFA 18. Introducing real-player motion technology, player synchronized celebrations and part two to Alex Hunter’s Journey! FIFA 18 will undoubtedly be the best installment in the FIFA series once it comes out on September 29, 2017. The game will be available across all platforms with certain modes restricted only for PS4 and Xbox One.
Other notable mentions
Some games that deserve at least a mention are Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 (already out), Metroid: Samus Returns, NBA 2K18, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Gold & Silver on 3DS virtual console, and Gundam Versus.
