#53 Resident Evil 2 Remake
  • Developer: Capcom
  • Publisher: Capcom

Capcom was one of the development studios who helped paved the way for the survival horror genre with their release of Resident Evil. That franchise has grown to become a hit in video games, films and novels. However, if you’re looking to get back into the series roots then you may be struggling.

While certain titles within the franchise have gone on to receive their own HD remakes and overhauls, other titles like Resident Evil 2 has been left alone. That was until Capcom unveiled that Resident Evil 2 would see a high-definition remake of the game which will greatly improve visuals and gameplay mechanics since its initial 1998 release.

The game takes place just months after the events of the original Resident Evil video game where players are taking control of Leon S Kennedy and Claire Redfield who must escape Raccoon City. Likewise, this is an early title release of the Resident Evil franchise, making it more of a survival horror title with a focus on carefully executing tasks, hostile creatures and puzzle solving.

#52 Just Cause 4
  • Developer: Avalanche Studios
  • Publisher: Square Enix

Get ready to jump back into the boots of Rico Rodriguez. Just Cause 4 is coming out this holiday season and as always players will be following Rico who is dealing with a new antagonist group in the South American country called Solis.

From what we know so far about Just Cause 4 is that Rico is going against a paramilitary group known as the Black Hand. This installment is actually slated to unveil the mysterious history of Rico, but you’ll also find that the Black Hand isn’t the only hostility that Rico will have to endure before he is able to learn of his past.

Solis is home of conflict and oppression along with severe weather conditions. As such, players will need to prepare to use the wingsuit to soar through the skies while avoiding lightning storms and massive tornadoes.

#51 Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! And Let’s Go, Eevee!
  • Developer: Game Freak
  • Publisher: The Pokemon Company, Nintendo

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee! are two video game titles developed under Game Freak. For those familiar with the Pokemon video game franchise, these are considered remakes for the 1998 release, Pokemon Yellow.

As a result, players will find most of the mechanics that the series is known for such as battling other trainers, capturing Pokemon, defeating gym leaders, purchasing items and exploring the world. Likewise, because this is a 1998 remake, only the 151 original Pokemon will be featured within the games.

Developers over at Game Freak also put a slight spin to that game as well thanks to the Joy-Con controllers. When tossing out a Pokeball, players will have to use the motion controls to get an accurate throw. Similar to how the touchscreen functions are made for Pokemon Go, though it seems that the mechanic system will also work for when the Joy-Con’s are docked to the Nintendo Switch.
