In Fast Forward each month we take a look at a handful of up-and-coming games that have us excited, and hopefully have you excited too!
Resident Evil Village
It’s finally time for the eighth major entry in the Resident Evil series where, as always, danger lurks around every corner… Eep! Promising us incredible graphics, challenging new adversaries and another horror-heavy fight for survival, plus the return of some fan-favourite features from past adventures, this is the tense continuation of the story of Ethan Winters that kicked off in RE7.
PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One – Survival horror – Multiplayer? Yes – Release date: 7/5/21
Nintendo are delving into their back catalogue again to deliver us a revamp of 3DS turn-based RPG Miitopia, with a whole lot of added fun. The big draw is that you can be the star of the game via your personal Mii character, and cast anybody else’s Mii – friends, family, frenemies, famous types – in various other roles, as you set out to bring down the villainous, face-stealing Dark Lord (BOO! HISS!)
Switch – RPG – Multiplayer? No – Release date: 21/5/21
It’s been coming a long time, but the small team behind this big open world adventure have been busy honing their ever-evolving martial arts creation to deliver maximum fun. With a plague ruining the land and the Tree-of-Life bleeding death from its roots, the Tribes stand divided, in need of someone strong enough to unite them or bring them all down… That would be you!
PS4, Xbox One, PC – Action RPG – Multiplayer? No – Release date: 25/5/21
