When you absolutely have something of a summer slump in the gaming calendar wants to write, then probably in August. And if that doesn’t interest anyone, it’s the inclined JRPG fan. He still has to do with Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Live A Live or optionally Digimon Survive for the whole of August anyway.

    For everyone else there is of course also in this month our selection of new releases. And the list is definitely a bit tighter than in the last few months. With Soul Hackers 2 and Dusk Diver 2 there are two interesting new Japanese releases.

    Some people might also be interested in the Chinese Sword and Fairy: Together Forever. Otherwise, the month is characterized by indies, remasters, subsequent retail versions and collections.
