Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, Onimusha: Warlords, and Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes make this the first truly notable week for gaming in 2019.

January 13, 2019

While last week may have just seen the launch of several remasters, game releases will start to kick into full gear this week. Despite still being early in the year, we can expect titles from Capcom, Nintendo,  and Bandai Namco Entertainment this week, all of which were heavily requested by fans. After starting on January 15 with another remaster, Onimusha: Warlords, two other highly anticipated games will be landing on Friday, January 18: Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes and Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.

Those interested can find affiliate links to pre-order this week’s biggest games below. If you want Onimusha: Warlords on launch day, you should probably pre-order soon. In addition, affiliate link posts like this help ensure that DualShockers stay running while still being an independent source of news coverage and opinions that are less mainstream.


Onimusha: Warlords

While Onimusha: Warlords may just seem like yet another remaster, it is a very important game for the Capcom series it is attempting to revitalize. The Onimusha series was a powerhouse during the PS2 era, with the first game in the series being the first PlayStation 2 game to sell over 1 million copies. Unfortunately, the series has fallen out of the limelight since then and hasn’t seen a new entry since 2006 outside of browser game called Onimusha Soul.

Fans have been asking Capcom to pay attention to the series for years and this is finally our first chance to try out and support and Onimusha game for consoles this decade. As for the game itself, Onimusha: Warlords remasters the first entry in the beloved series. The game’s graphics have updated to be HD and widescreen support, analog support, new voice acting and music, and an easy mode available from the start have been added.

If you want to let Capcom know that Onimusha you care for, getting Onimusha: Warlords is probably the best way to do so. You can find the links to pre-order Onimusha: Warlords for every console below:

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes

Fans have wanted to see Suda51’s No More Heroes series return for years and it finally will be this Friday. That being said, this adventure with Travis Touchdown is quite a bit different than the previous two games in this quirky series. Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes follows Travis Touchdown and an adversary named Badman as they attempt to survive through multiple different games from within an evil console called Death Drive MK-II after being sucked into it during a fight.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is actually played from a top-down perspective and supports co-op. Players make their way through various different games, all of which stand out with unique mechanics due to being different genres. Travis Touchdown can also wear over 18 shirts based on several indie games from Devolver Digital such as Absolver, Downwell, Hotline Miami, and The Messenger.

Suda51 titles always have a unique, quirky charm to them so hopefully this game will be quite memorable. Also, for No More Heroes fans, this is the first time you’ll be able to experience its world and characters in years. You can pre-order Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes or pick up a Nintendo Switch with the links below:

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

While the Ace Combat series lost its way in the eyes of many due to less traditional entires like Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, Bandai Namco Entertainment is finally correcting course with Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, a new faithful mainline entry in the long-running series. Now, after a long wait, the game will finally be in our hands on consoles this Friday.

The developers set out to make Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown an authentic feeling experience, even if it doesn’t take place in the real world. This authenticity oozes throughout the entire game via the numerous playable aircraft present, how they all feel to control, and Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown’s realistic graphics. The game will also support PlayStation VR.

As for the story, it will chronicle the story a war between the fictional  Osean Federation and the Kingdom of Erusea, specifically the adventures of pilot codenamed Trigger in Osea’s Spare Squad. The Ace Combat series finally seems to be back on its feet, and you’ll finally be able to see that for yourself on January 18.
