Top 5 Video Games Arriving in August 2019

Top Games Coming in August 2019

With the end of July 2019 comes August 2019 to round out the end of summer. While July saw the releases of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Dragon Quest Builders 2, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, August 2019 brings a more varied offering. As we slowly approach the holiday season of 2019, let us take a look at the top upcoming games of August 2019.

Oninaki – Aug 22 – PC, PS4, Switch

The latest game from Tokyo RPG Factory, Oninaki follows previous offerings I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear. Setting the game apart from the developer’s previous titles is its combat system, which now occurs in real-time. With a customizable character, an intriguing story, and a striking aesthetic, Tokyo RPG Factory looks to put everything together for perhaps its best title yet. From our preview, we noted that “what impressed [us] the most during the preview was the game’s interesting world.”

Rad – Aug 20 – PC, PS4, Switch, X1

Rad looks… for a lack of a better word, rad. Developed by Double Fine Productions, Rad is a rogue-like set in a “post-post-apocalyptic” universe in which you are thrust into the role of a teenager sent out to an ever-changing wasteland. The interesting hook of Rad, though, is that the radioactivity will constantly alter your form and abilities, turning you into a mutant every so often.
