It’s not the end of the world if you’ve been stuck on the same game or movie for too long.
Luckily, there are plenty of alternatives to the standard retail game store, with several popular titles popping up on the market.
The following is a look at some of the hottest new games that have arrived on store shelves in 2018, from retro classics to obscure gems.1.
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children The original Final Fantasy was one of the most beloved games in video game history.
In its first outing, the iconic franchise celebrated the return of a hero to the world, as he fought off an army of angels, as well as a new evil.
In Advent Children, you play as the eponymous protagonist, as you traverse the world of Remnant.
While Advent Children’s narrative was based around a fantasy world, it also provided a unique way to experience the series’ universe, introducing an entirely new perspective for gamers.
As the series continued to grow, it continued to offer new worlds to explore, and the series evolved into a much more expansive franchise.
With Advent Children 2: Advent Tracks, Square Enix is bringing Final Fantasy 7: Advent Forces to the Switch.
Advent Children 3: Advent Soldiers also launches this year.
Final Fantasies: The Lost World and The World Ends With You While Final Fantasy is known for its sprawling and expansive universes, there’s also a ton of small worlds to be found within the series.
One of the biggest worlds of Final Fantasy games is Final Fantasy The World Begins With You, the main entry in the Final Fantasy series.
The game follows the adventures of two brothers named Noctis and Prompto, who are searching for a way to reach the world beyond the borders of the Forgotten Lands.
Like Final Fantasy, The World Starts With You is a beautiful story, with a colorful cast of characters, plenty of humor, and some excellent music.
The developers also designed the game to support touchscreen use, making it a perfect candidate for a home console.
With Final Fantasy V: The Final Fantasy Collection, Square is giving fans of the series the opportunity to relive their favorite moments from the series in a new game, allowing fans to experience some of those same nostalgic feelings for their favorite Final Fantasy characters.3.
Super Mario Maker for Nintendo Switch If you’ve ever been intrigued by Nintendo’s new console, Super Mario Land, you’ll probably want to pick up Super Mario Bros. 3 for the Switch, but it’s the Nintendo Land that you’re really looking forward to.
The 3DS spin-off is a gorgeous, expansive game with tons of content to discover, from its iconic Mushroom Kingdom to its classic Mario theme.
The Mario franchise has been around for decades, and Nintendo Land is just the perfect way to jump back in and relive the game’s glory days.4.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard As the franchise that inspired Resident Evil, Resident Evil is one of my favorite horror series, especially the third installment, Resident Thesis.
It’s also one of those games that makes you feel like a badass, with the ability to go toe-to-toe with the undead.
Capcom has finally given Resident Evil fans something new to sink their teeth into, Resident EVIL 7: biohazard.
Resident EV: 7 takes the game back to its roots, giving fans the chance to explore a new, open-world, and a brand new campaign.
The gameplay is still the same, with simple but satisfying gameplay elements, like finding the key that unlocks the level, and then killing all the enemies in the level.5.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo 3DS If it’s Super Smash Brothers Ultimate for Wii U, it’s a new adventure for the series, as the franchise once again brings players the ultimate battle against their friends.
The first game in the series to be developed exclusively for Nintendo consoles, Super Smash Brawl is a massive multiplayer action title that lets players battle against each other and up to four players simultaneously.
With more than 60 characters to choose from, and more than 300 stages to battle through, it can be tough to keep track of all the characters.
If you’ve never tried Smash Bros., this game is a great introduction to the series for anyone who hasn’t played before.6.
Super Paper Mario for Nintendo Game Boy Advance While Paper Mario and Luigi’s Mansion are the most recent games to arrive on Nintendo consoles (the first being Super Mario 3D World in 2005), Super Paper Masks was one the first games to come out on Nintendo Gameboy Advance.
It takes the form of a platformer, and is also the first to utilize Nintendo’s GamePad.
The games main focus is to collect collectibles and upgrade your characters, but with Super PaperMario for Nintendo is more about exploring the world and finding hidden gems.
This title has a great storyline and has a lot of replay
