Hello, dear readers, and welcome to the latest installment of Coming This Week! We're rapidly approaching the end of January and the arrival of a certain action RPG prominently featuring Mickey Mouse... but let's not get ahead of ourselves. There's a lot to talk about before that, including some excellent narrative adventure games! So let's get started.
The Raven Remastered - January 22nd (Switch)
The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief was an interesting puzzle adventure game from KING Art Games back in 2013. Our review of the original release covers all three chapters of the mystery. Now, THQ Nordic has gotten their hands on the license and released the game onto modern platforms. The Switch version comes out this Tuesday, and adventure game fans looking for a solid mystery to solve should keep an eye on it.
Langrisser Mobile - January 22nd (iOS, Android)
Adding to the existing group of RPG-related mobile options, we have Langrisser Mobile releasing on Tuesday. As the name implies, this is a mobile installment of the classic Langrisser series, sort of in the vein of Fire Emblem Heroes. Keep an eye on RPGFan for more coverage of this one!
Chaos;Child - January 22nd (PC)
This "Science Adventure" series of visual novels is in the upper echelons of the genre, so it's exciting whenever another entry gets ported; it means more people have the opportunity to experience these fascinating titles. Chaos;Child came out a few years ago on PS4 and Vita, but is now arriving on PC. Be sure to read Robert Fenner's review before diving in this Tuesday.
Life is Strange 2 - Episode 2: Rules - January 24th (PC, PS4, XB1)
The phenomenal Life is Strange series returns with the second episode of its second... season? Series? Its sequel? One of those things. Anyway, Life is Strange 2 - Episode 2: Rules launches for PC, PS4, and XB1 on Thursday. Check out Bob Richardson's review of the first episode if you'd like to learn more about what Life is Strange 2 has in store.
Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds - January 24th (Switch)
Last, but not least, we have Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds, an interesting indie JRPG throwback that came out on Steam early last year. It's making its way to consoles now, starting with the Switch this Thurdsay. If you'd like to know more about what Legrand Legacy has to offer, be sure to read Rob Rogan's excellent review.
