There are only four games releasing this week, however…here it is! The game we have all been waiting for. That’s right… Marvel’s Midnight Suns is finally being released. Darkest Dungeon 2 is also leaving early access, and the long running series Ys is getting its ninth installment. There’s also this little Indy game called The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom releasing this week as well. I hear it looks pretty good.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom- Switch
- The most anticipated game of 2023 is finally here. Tears of the Kingdom is a direct sequel to Game of the Year winner Breath of the Wild, so expectations are very high.

Use Link’s Ultrahand to build and craft whatever your mind can think of to traverse this massive world, now made bigger by floating islands.
