More upcoming video game lists of 2017:


Kingdom Hearts 3

Developer: Square Enix 1st Production Department
Publisher: Square Enix
Platforms: PS4
Release Date: Expected 2017

Everyone should be well aware of the Kingdom Hearts franchise. The third installment is expected to release in 2017. Since the release of Kingdom Hearts 2, The Walt Disney Company had acquired Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Entertainment, and Lucasfilm, which could result in seeing a new variety of characters and worlds from these three new acquired companies.

As before, Sora will be the leading protagonist of the video game while he will have help in his journey from Riku, Donald Duck, Goofy, King Mickey, among a series of other Final Fantasy and Disney characters.


Yooka-Laylee

Developer: Playtonic Games
Publisher: Team17
Platforms: PC, PS4, XB1, Wii U
Release Date: TBA 2017

Development team Playtonic Games contains several former key staff members from studio Rare. As such, the team has opted to make a spiritual successor to one of their previous successful titles, Banjo-Kazooie. Releasing at some point during the first quarter of 2017 is Yooka-Laylee.

Much like Banjo-Kazooie, there will be plenty of items to collect during your platform adventure. Furthermore, similar to Banjo-Kazooie, there will be two main characters who must stop the evil Dr. Quak from stealing all the world literature and selling it for profit.


A Hat in Time

Developer: Gears for Breakfast
Publisher: Gears for Breakfast
Platforms: PC
Release Date: TBA 2017

Developers Gears for Breakfast is working at a platformer that resembles some of the more beloved platform titles released for the Nintendo 64. The upcoming release, A Hat in Time, will play out similarly to Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie, as there is a heavy emphasis on collecting missing pieces scattered through the game world.

In the overall story, players will take on the role of a young girl named Hat Kid. Hat Kid has the ability to interstellar travel, though during her way home she is intercepted by a Mafia group under control of the evil Mustache Girl.

Stranded, Hat Kid must collect her missing “time pieces” that have been scattered throughout the world before she is able to refuel her ship, but she will be racing against the clock as Mustache Girl and her goons are collecting them as well.


Gang Beasts

Developer: Boneloaf
Publisher: Double Fine Presents
Platforms: PC, PS4
Release Date: TBA 2017

Gang Beasts have already been played and shared online since 2014, thanks to the early access title, however, the full release is expected to launch in 2017. The video game is a local multiplayer beat ‘em up and a perfect one to enjoy as a party game.

Players will take the role of a colored humanoid figurine and battle against friends in a series of hazardous environments. Gameplay is easy to master and a bit more relaxed compared to other fighting titles such as the upcoming Tekken 7. If you have yet to enjoy the early access version of this game, do yourself a favor and mark down Gang Beasts as a title to watch for in 2017.


Brawlout

Developer: Angry Mob Games
Publisher: Angry Mob Games
Platforms: PC, PS4, XB1
Release Date: TBA 2017

Brawlout is an upcoming platform fighting title that plays out similar to the Super Smash Bros. series. The video game allows players to choose from a series of animal characters, each with their own unique abilities.

Again, much like the Super Smash Bros. series, players are tasked with battling friends on a small stage platform while attempting to score points by knocking the opposing players off the stage entirely.


Splatoon

Developer: Nintendo EAD
Publisher: Nintendo
Platforms: Wii U, Nintendo Switch
Release Date: TBA 2017 (Nintendo Switch)

This might be a bit of a stretch for this list, but Splatoon was one of our favorite Nintendo Wii U games to have released. With the Nintendo Switch releasing in 2017 and the game being heavily featured within the console reveal trailer, it’s likely that the Nintendo Switch will receive either a port of Splatoon or a completely new entry.

With the game heavily focused on team gameplay, we can’t wait to flood the city landscapes with our team colors once again. Splatoon was a great party game for all ages and we’re curious to see just how the gameplay mechanics will handle when and if the video game releases on the Nintendo Switch.


Crash Bandicoot Remastered Collection

Developer: Vicarious Visions
Publisher: Activision
Platforms: PS4
Release Date: TBA 2017

You’re likely fully aware of the video game franchise Crash Bandicoot, which got its start on the original Sony PlayStation. Now, decades later, the video game franchise is receiving a proper remastered collection.

Releasing exclusively on the PlayStation 4, Crash Bandicoot Remastered Collection will include Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and lastly, Crash Bandicoot: Warped.


Scale

Developer: Cube Heart Games, LLC
Publisher: Cube Heart Games, LLC
Platforms: PC
Release Date: TBA 2017

Scale first popped up on Kickstarter where this unique puzzle title managed to receive over $108,000 for development. Overall, the game focuses on sizes and gives the players a device that will allow them to scale anything and everything bigger or smaller.

This means throughout the game, players can change the size of a tree, wall, an enemy, cloud, to even the levels. For the most part, it seems that the video game is more open world allowing players to freely explore and discover secrets hidden away within the game.

As for the overall story, players will be taking on the role of a young physics savant Penny Prince who found herself in prison under the conviction of 9,322,591 counts of Depraved Heart Murder for accidentally destroying the entire east coast. Using an old cellphone found within a recycling bin in prison, Penny creates a device that would allow her the ability to shrink or enlarge objects. Using this device, players break free from prison and attempt to regain their freedom.


Henka Twist Caper

Developer: OriGaminc
Publisher: OriGaminc
Platforms: PS4
Release Date: TBA 2017

From indie development studio OriGaminc comes Henka Twist Caper, an upcoming PlayStation 4 title that will make use of your PlayStation Move controllers. Think of this upcoming title as Twister with a bit more physical combat.

Players are essentially confined in a small square where each will hold their own PlayStation Move controller. The goal of this title is for players to twist, turn, and move their controller around until they find their “sweet spot”, a point where the motion controller will light up and your game meter will rise. The person who fills their meter up first wins, but the other players are able to shove and push your controller to disrupt your meter.
