Got illness? Don't travel!

Hello, dear readers, and welcome to the latest installment of Coming This Week! I hope home is comfortable and filled with toilet paper on this fine day. While many of us are some version of stuck at home, why not play some video games? Those can be safely downloaded onto your game system of choice without even having to go outside. Let's get started.

Kingdom Hearts: All In One Package - March 17th (PS4)

Square Enix is really going out of their way lately to make sure the entire Kingdom Hearts series is available for potential newcomers. Which is a good thing, mind: these games are delightful and skipping any entry is going to make keeping track of the labyrinthine story that much more difficult! The All in One Package that's dropping on the 17th includes everything in the recent HD ReMixes, plus Kingdom Hearts III (sans the recent DLC offering). Now's as good a time as any to get into Kingdom Hearts if you haven't yet done so.

Ittle Dew 2+ - March 19th (Switch)

The Ittle Dew games are charming Zelda clones by Swedish developer Ludosity. Both games have been out on the Switch for a while now, but Ittle Dew 2 is getting a stealthy "+" update that adds new things to the base game, including an easy mode, collectible cards, and a new dream world featuring five additional dungeons. It's a great opportunity to try out this delightful adventure!

Chronicle of Daneya - March 19th (Windows)

Curate your own history and write your own destiny with this indie RPG from Robot D. You play as Luchezar, heir to the throne who is mired in a war and has experienced a series of setbacks (including the loss of his father). How he responds is up to the player, and only the Chronicle can tell exactly what happens. Will he regain his fortune and guide the land toward prosperity? Now may be a good time to find out.

The Pale City - March 20th (Windows)

Last, but not least, we have The Pale City, a dark fantasy RPG with a top-down perspective. Developed using RPG Maker by one Kyle Muntz, The Pale City promises to offer a dark and dangerous world, one where "every detail is personal." It certainly sounds ambitious! Keep an eye out for more coverage on this one from us.

And that's a wrap, folks! As always, stay tuned to RPGFan for more coverage of your favorite video games, and we'll see you next time.
