Top Releases of September 2021
As the summer winds down, we start taking a look ahead at September 2021 and its releases. On the surface, we have a bunch of interesting titles, and there appears to be something for everyone. Without further delay, let’s take a look at the top video games coming out next month.
Diablo II: Resurrected
Diablo II is an isometric, hack-and-slash, action RPG that was first released in 2000 on the PC. 21 years later, this classic title is remastered and on its way to PC as well as every major console. The remaster includes various upgrades, including graphics, network functions, and a bunch of quality of life improvements. While the game may be decades old at this point, the interest level in the game remains at a high.
Lost Judgment is the sequel to Judgment, and the Judgment series itself is a spinoff of the Yakuza series. Lost Judgment, like its predecessor, is a real-time brawler, unlike the turn-based twist that has taken the Yakuza series. Fans of the series can expect more of the same, and just in time. The Yakuza series, along with the Judgment series, has been gaining steam thus far, and they look to become even more popular in the near future.
Life is Strange: True Colors
Life is Strange continues its journey with Life is Strange: True Colors. While some may have felt that Life is Strange 2 was a bit of a sophomore slump for the series, Life is Strange: True Colors looks to re-inject some life into the franchise. In True Colors, players take the role of Alex Chen who is investigating her brother’s death, utilizing her empathy powers in the process.
Tales of Arise
The Tales series has always been a consistent mainstay in the JRPG genre. Like other games in the series, you can be sure that Tales of Arise will have strong characters, interactions, and the series’ familiar Linear Motion Battle System. While the Tales series might not be the biggest JRPG series out there, its consistency and longevity speak to its quality.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a third-person action-adventure game in which players control Kena, a spirit guide with magical abilities. As Kena, players must assist spirits as their guide in moving on while helping to restore the village from its abandoned state. Despite being hit with a number of delays, the hype around Kena: Bridge of Spirits is still great.
