Dragon Quest Builders - Oct 11th - PS4, Vita
Set in an alternate reality version of the original Dragon Quest, you take control of a new hero on a quest to retake and rebuild the world!

All of the typical monsters return including Slimes, Golems, Dragons, and of course the vile Dragonlord! For those of you looking for a more classic Dragon Quest experience, you’re best off with the recently released Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past.

Shadow Warrior 2 - Oct 13th - PC
Picking up five years after the events of the original, Shadow Warrior 2 sees the return of Lo Wang in his continued battle against the other-worldly demons lead by Zilla. In addition to the new story campaign, Shadow Warrior 2 also includes a 4-player co-op mode! When playing in co-op each player will see themselves as Lo Wang and the other players and random ninjas as to not detract from a personal "main character" experience.
Skipping the more linear style of the last game, Shadow Warrior 2 is a more open world and non-linear experience! To compliment this there are a multitude of new ways to traverse areas, double jumping and wall climbing are just a few of the new mechanics. With this non-linear gameplay, players can also revisit old levels to take out additional enemies and upgrade Lu Wang's skills before progressing in the story further.
