After the mammoth amount of new releases last week, one could be forgiven for thinking that this week is going to be a disappointment. But when you realise that the trio of games on offer this week involve huge franchises and a pure, authentic racer, there’s plenty to be excited about. Let’s see what new Xbox One and Xbox 360 games are ‘In Stores This Week’.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite – 19th September – Xbox One
When two worlds collide, the greatest characters from the Marvel and Capcom universes must work together to bring down the most villainous foe of all – Ultron Sigma. The likes of Captain America, Hulk, Chris Redfield and Frank West, amongst others, must try to save their merged worlds, with Infinity Stones looking to play a large part in the gameplay on offer. Story mode aside, gamers can expect to get stuck into all the usual fighting genre modes – Arcade, Training, Ranked Match, Casual Match and Versus. Mission mode will also be available to learn the craft of using each character, and there’s a Beginners League for low ranked online action. Can you stop Ultron Sigma?
