The year may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean that video game releases are! There are a ton of new and awesome titles to check out this month. Here are some upcoming November games that we can’t wait to get our hands on! 

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

Another exciting installment in the Mario & Sonic series is here! After mixed reviews from the original Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 seeks to balance the console vs. handheld issues with its release to the Nintendo Switch. Along with the traditional Mario & Sonic trials, Tokyo 2020 also features 8-bit versions of some Olympic sports, such as the swimming high-dive. Veterans of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Sega Master System (SMS) are sure to be just as enthralled as today’s Nintendo Switch newcomers. At its core, the Olympic spirit is a spirit of fun, and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is simple and goofy enough that players of all ages will be having fun for months leading up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games!

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is now available on the Nintendo Switch.

Death Stranding

When Death Stranding was first announced at E3 2016, it was met with enthusiastic applause. Longtime fans of game developer Hideo Kojima were excited to see the first game out of his newly re-formed studio Kojima Productions. At first no one really knew what the game was about and all the trailers and news that followed the initial announcement only seemed to deepen the mystery. What we do know about Death Stranding is that this open world action game will take you on a perilous and emotional journey to save mankind from supernatural beings. Players will assume the role of courier Sam Bridges (Norman Reedus) as he traverses the United Cities to deliver supplies. Sam will face many dangerous enemies, humans and otherwordly, as well as rivals Higgs (Troy Baker) and Cliff (Mads Mikkelsen). 

Death Stranding is now available on PS4. It will be released in Summer 2020 for PC.
