Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles

18 July 2017 (PS4, PC)

Looking like a colourful, Zelda-esque adventure, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is for those looking for a bit of discovery, mystery, and lite action along the way.

In Yonder, you will explore the open-world of Gemea, uncovering the islands secrets and the mysteries as you embark on a journey of self-discovery. On a quest to become the island’s champion, you join forces with Sprites, creatures who are the only thing capable of dispersing the murk, to save Gemea and its people.

Players will also need to master farming, crafting, cooking, fishing and brewing in order to make the island your own.

Splatoon 2

21 July 2017 (Switch)

Nintendo’s colourful multiplayer shooter returns for another round of squid vs kid action, where each team has to claim as much territory as possible using ink guns and abilities.

The original’s beloved 4-on-4 turf battles return, along with new modes, stages, fashions, and weapons, like the dual-wielding Splat Dualies.

It looks like Splatoon is back to claim the competitive shooter crown of the Switch.
