The time is up for yet another fun games list, this time on the upcoming games for September 2020. We’ve already had quite a few new games this year making waves, like Call of Duty: Warzone, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Legends of Runeterra and so many others. So, I hope you’re all as excited as I am for the upcoming games for September!
Ary and The Secret of Seasons
Ary and the Secret of Seasons is an action-adventure game in which the player plays as a young girl, Ary, as she journeys across the world of Valdi. Ary has joined an organization by the name of Guardians of Seasons, and she is tasked with restoring the seasons of Valdi, so that she herself can become a Guardian of Winter, like her father before her.
I am really excited about this game, as it gives me quite a The Legend of Zelda vibe. The game’s structure is very similar, the colorful world and the fun-to-play missions alllook very interesting.
It was supposed to have been released back in July, but it was delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. The new launch date is Sept. 1.
We might have lost a few of our heroes in Avengers: Endgame, but in this new Marvel’s Avengers game, we get to not only see them again but also play as them.
This action-adventure game will allow players to play the story as a single player or in co-op mode, which is great news for me, as I love playing co-op games. All players will be able to have awesome and unique skills and costumes, which can be upgraded using a skill tree.
And when I say costumes, I mean a buttload of costumes from all over the Marvel Universe. As for the story, I don’t want to spoil it for you, so we’ll have just have to wait for Sept. 4.
NBA fans, good news for you: 2K Sports is releasing the 22nd installment of the NBA 2K franchise and its release date is Sept. 4.
The game will feature NBA stars – of course – and will once again allow basketball fans to play out their ball dreams, and gamers to take a dip in the deep culture of the sport.
To honor the memory of the late Kobe Bryant, he will be featured on the covers of the Mamba Forever editions of the game.
Crusader Kings III
Making this list is already paying off for me. My heart skipped a beat when I heard Crusader Kings was set to have its third game, and I’m so close to being able to play it, as it is set to be released on Sept. 1.
The first two games were so interesting, and I can’t wait for this one to come out. The game is set in the Middle Ages, and this time it will run from the Viking Age all the way up to the Fall of Byzantium, a.k.a Constantinople.
The part I’m most excited about is that, similarly to Bannerlord, we’ll get to develop our characters’ traits and even pass some of them onto our heirs. All religions and governments will be playable, so the game will be truly realistic, which is music to my ears.
Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia
Anyone familiar with this name has probably seen at least one or two episodes of the Netflix show Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia. The game, much like the show, will follow the story of a boy called James – or Jim for short – as he goes on a journey to find a mysterious amulet, and happens to stumble across a secret realm inhabited by friendly trolls and other magical creatures.
After a while, Jim is asked to protect this new realm from incoming enemies that seem to lurk at every corner.
Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia is coming out on Sept. 25, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Mafia: Definitive Edition
Mafia: Definitive Edition is a remake of the 2002 game Mafia, an action-adventure game based on the city of Lost Haven, in the early 1930s. This remake version will be much more complex and well-built, with new assets and a story expansion.
The players take on the role of Tommy Angelo, a taxi driver who decided to go down the mobster path. This Tommy guy is attacked by the Morello family and is saved by the Salieri family, to whom he later pledges his fealty to.
He then goes on several missions on the behalf of the Salieri family and struggles with himself, as he completes several morally questionable missions.
I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like September is going to be full of action, and I am definitely excited about it.
And if the newest releases aren’t appealing to your gaming tastes, then you might want to check out other games that have come out recently. Or you know, wait until my list of upcoming games for October!
