FIFA 21 bounces off the woodwork and onto Switch this week, but in all honesty, there isnt much to say its another Legacy Edition i.e a straightforward kit/transfer update. The only new additions are new stadiums.
To quote EA themselves: FIFA 21 Legacy Edition will featurethe same gameplay innovation from FIFA 20 without any new development orsignificant enhancements.
A couple of other franchises make comebacks this week. Neighbours From Hell was a moderately successful series back in the early noughties, gracing even the GameCube. Big in mainland Europe, we understand. It, quite simply, entails ruining your neighbours day by placing traps and pranks for them to wander into.
It didnt review too well on GameCube critics found that after seeing each scenario play out once or twice, there wasnt much more to take in. Regardless, THQ Nordic brings Neighbours From Hell 1 and 2 together this week with a lick of HD paint, available for a modest 12.99.
The original Nickelodeon Kart Racers was something of a slowbut steady seller too. It clearly sold enough to warrant a sequel, at the veryleast. Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is apparently a markedimprovement on its predecessor, with a lot more to offer. CulturedVultures who awarded it a 6/10 found the lack of voice samples a hugedownfall, however, which seems justified.
Then theres The Survivalists, set within TheEscapists universe. Here, youre tasked with surviving on a desert island. It soundslike a slightly cheerier rendition of Dont Stave Explore, build, craft andeven train monkeys with up to three friends in a desperate bid to survive,reads the presser.
We can throw indie platformer Skatemasta Tcheco intothis pile too, this being part of a series the first Tcheco game launched afew months ago. Its a NES-style pixel art affair, this time with a skateboardingtwist.
We spent some time with Ghost of a Tale on Xbox Oneand was left impressed. Going by screenshots alone, this Switch version is alsolooker. Set in a medieval world where rats rule over all other creatures, itsan action RPG with stealth elements. Dont be fooled by its cutesy exterior it has a dark streak too.
Ikenfell, meanwhile, is a 2D turn-based tactical RPG set in a magic school and featuring a cast of troublesome magic students. Little do the students know that a dark secret is about to be uncovered. We already know what goes into the school hotdogs, so lets hope its not that.
Others to consider include the 2D dungeon crawler 9th Dawn III, the full price detective mystery Agatha Christie The ABC Murders (also due at retail), management sim The Ramen Sensei, and the randomised space shooter Space Avenger: Empire of Nexx.
