Oninaki (PC, PS4, Switch) – August 22

By Tokyo RPG Factory and published by Square Enix, Oninaki will try to play with your emotions when you play as a “watcher,” a being who guides the earthbound souls called the “lost” to cross over to the afterlife. This new action-RPG let’s you experience a fast-paced real time battle, all while promising an emotional journey for the soul.

 

Control (PC, PS4, XBO) – August 27

From the guys that brought us Quantum Break and Alan Wake comes Control. Float, fling, and fight your way as Jesse Faden, a psychic special agent who infiltrates a facility on her quest to find her brother and uncover what the Federal Bureau of Control hides in the shadows.

 

Astral Chain (Switch) – August 30

We saw Astral Chain in E3 2019, we definitely got excited to play this game! Restore order by controlling two characters at once, and fight the invasion of monsters with your chained living weapon called Legion.
