Based on the anime series of the same name, this Japanese fighting game is rounds of fun. Take on the bosses until Saitama joins the fight to take care of them with one swift punch and discover the strategies that’ll help him join faster. Developed by Spike Chunsoft and released by Namco Entertainment, it’s wacky, wonderful and not to be missed!




Lands March 20th, exclusively on Nintendo Switch


This fun open-world game may look like it’s for kids but that’s definitely not the case! Set up camp, roll up your sleeves and make your new life whatever you want it to be in Tom Nook’s latest venture. Collect resources to craft everything you need, meet new friends and explore. After all, there’s nothing quite like escaping to a desert island, even in the form of one of Nintendo’s life simulation games!

This first-person shooter game isn’t for the faint-hearted! Just like the rest of the epic franchise, it’s loaded with blood, gore and buckets of action! Resume your role as DOOM’s ancient warrior and battle the demonic forces of hell from a first-person perspective. You’ll have access to weaponry favourites like the trusty chainsaw and super shotgun – now equipped with a meat hook, plus watch out for new movement mechanics like dash moves and wall climbing!




Lands April 10th, Exclusive to PlayStation 4


The first instalment of a planned series, this is the spectacular reimagining of one of the most visionary games ever. The original first hit our screens back in 1997 and this hotly anticipated remake both builds and expands on legendary RPG for today.
