Whether you’re into off-road racing or you crave a challenging action platformer, there’s a new video game release for you. So, let’s dive in and look at all the new games coming out this week.

Disgaea 6 Complete (June 28)

Disgaea 6 Complete

Kicking things off this week, we have Disgaea 6 Complete. Since first launching last June, this strategy RPG was only available on Nintendo Switch in the United States. Now, thanks to NIS America, PlayStation and PC gamers can have a go at Nippon Ichi’s latest hit.

Disgaea 6 Complete also comes packed with every DLC character and cosmetic from the game’s season pass. Longtime fans will certainly recognize familiar faces from previous Disgaea games. You can pick up Disgaea 6 Complete tomorrow for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.

DNF Duel (June 28)

DNF Duel

Ready to get your hands dirty and duke it out with some good ol’ fighting in DNF Duel? If so, you’re in luck with this new video game release! Developed by Eighting and Arc System Works and published by Nexon, we’re just one day away from one of the most anticipated fighting games of the year.

This 2.5D anime fighter brings together fan-favorite characters from Dungeon Fighter Online into an epic competitive title. In addition, the game looks amazing with an art style that combines 3D cel-shaded character models with gorgeous artistic backdrops. You can enter the fight tomorrow on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Escape Academy (June 28)

Escape Academy

If puzzle games are more your thing, then you’ll want to check out Escape Academy. In this colorful escape room simulator, you take on the role of a student at a school dedicated to teaching escape artists the tricks of the trade. Developed by Coin Crew Games, a team with a love for real-life escape rooms, this new title will bring the thrill of solving puzzles to find a way out to the world of video games.

In addition, you and a friend can experience the thrills of escaping together in split-screen co-op. Both local and online multiplayer allow for players to work together in split-screen. Why use split-screen for online multiplayer though? Although players adamantly look down on screen peeking for most games, it’s critical to solving puzzles together in this one. Escape Academy breaks out tomorrow for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC.

Fobia – St. Dinfna Hotel (June 28)

Fobia - St. Dinfna Hotel

Fobia – St. Dinfna Hotel is a survival horror title that leans heavily on time travel. Developed by Pulsatrix and published by Maximum Games, this chilling new title places you in the role of newbie journalist Roberto as you investigate the haunted St. Dinfna Hotel. As you run, hide and fight for survival, you’ll solve puzzles in the past, present and future of this horrifying hotel.

In addition, the game takes full advantage of the survival horror trope of resource management. As your inventory is severely limited, you’ll need to make split decisions between running and fighting the creatures that lurk in the dark. Fobia – St. Dinfna Hotel checks in tomorrow for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC.

MX vs ATV Legends (June 28)
