Game Releases Of September 2013

September 4, 2013

This blog post collates together what games will be released this month for a cluster of different consoles. Which includes the likes of Killzone: Mercenary and GTA: V. 

This blog post will focus on AAA titles, there’s quite a few games being released this month, believe it or not. Carry on reading to find out which ones!

They are listed below with a small description and a trailer (or gameplay).

Diablo 3

Although launching in May last year, Blizzard has decided not to make a new Diablo and keep with the install base and port the game to PS3 and Xbox 360. It is also slated for a PS4 release, but being as the developers got their dev kits quite late, there’s no news whether it’ll be a launch title or not.

Age: 15+
Consoles: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Playstation 4
Release Date: September 3rd (NA & EU)

As of now there’s been no confirmation of an Xbox One version.

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

This is an enhanced version of DoA 5 and includes 5 new playable characters, as well as enhanced features taken from DoA 5 Plus

There is a total roaster of 29 characters, all DoA games are great so it may be worth picking it up for £25

Age: 16
Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 (DoA 5 Plus is on Vita)
Release Date: EU= Already out – US= September 3rd

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse HD Remake

This is the HD remake of the original Sega Genesis game, a 2.5D platformer bound to bring back heaps of nostalgie to the player. The remake’s staff actually involves makers of the original game. I may say it looks pretty cool:

Age: E  – Everyone
Platform: Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC
Release Date: September 3rd PSN, September 4th XBLA & PC (Worldwide)

Rayman Legends

The sequel to Rayman Origins , and trivially it is the 5th main entry to the franchise. Originally being a Wii U exclusive but has since gone multiplatform to hit a wider audience, for those of you who have picked it up already, what’s your review?

Age: 10+
Platforms:PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

This is the spiritual successor to Amnesia: The Dark Decent, this entrance to the series follows a new cast and also set in a different time period. I can’t wait to scare myself *insert word here*less playing it!

Age: 18
Platforms: PC, Mac OSX, Linux
Release Date: September 10th (EU & US)

Killzone: Mercenary

This is a game long in the waiting – well it seems like it anyway. The game, made by Guerrilla Cambridge is a top class game, judging by the Beta. And if you want an FPS that isn’t made in 6 months by a now defunct company, this is the way to go. I’m definitely picking it up, but next month because I spent this months paycheque on GTA V special edition (and a limited edition strategy guide)…… And I just bought a new TV which I went halfs with my brother for…… Aaaaand my iPod is being repaired which costs £75 to repair.

Last Friday of each month…. I’m waiting…
