    New Releases breaks down the biggest games launching each week, and this episode is full of games from developers you might already love. Double Fine has the action-RPG Rad, Gunfire Games is launching Remnant: From the Ashes, and Tokyo RPG Factory is releasing Oninaki. Meanwhile, UnderMine comes to Steam Early Access and Nintendo Switch gets Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution.

    The “rad” in Double Fine’s newest adventure is short for “radiation,” because you’ll be exploring a post-apocalyptic irradiated world. The deeper you go, the more radiation you’ll absorb, developing crazy mutations that give you special powers. You’ll have to use a combination of mutant abilities and your trusty baseball bat to beat down the nuclear monsters in this world.

    Speaking of defeating monsters, Remnant: From the Ashes is a survival shooter that pits you against all manner of big beasts. The more you defeat, the more you’ll be able to upgrade your armor and weapons. Each of the game’s four worlds–Earth, Raesa, Rhom, and Corsus–is dynamically generated, so you’ll have new quests and events to experience each time you jump in.

    For the uninitiated, Yu-Gi-Oh is played by dealing cards that either summon monsters, cast spells or lay traps as you aim to reduce your opponent’s life force to zero. Link Evolution lets you build your deck from over 9,000 of those cards as you duel characters from the super-popular anime series. You can take on other players in online duels too.

    UnderMine — August 20

    UnderMine is a roguelike, which means you’re going to lose lots of characters to the monsters and traps as you dig deeper into each new layer of the mine. Fortunately, new miners retain the upgrades from your previous runs. UnderMine is headed to Early Access on Steam first, with future releases planned on Xbox One and Switch as well.

    Oninaki — August 22

    Oninaki might still be an RPG, but the team behind I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear is changing things up this time. Most notably, there’s a lot more action thanks to a hack-and-slash battle system. As far as the story goes, Oninaki is about the Watchers, who guide trapped souls into the afterlife.


    There’s one more episode of New Releases for the month of August, and it’s the most jam-packed episode yet. Next week, we’ll take a look at World of Warcraft Classic, Astral Cain, Blair Witch, and more.
