Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer
Rock Band 4
The pretend-you’re-in-a-band party game returns, this time spotlighting a freestyle mode that lets guitarists (though alas, only guitarists) jam on their plastic axe’s stringless fretboard, scoring higher if their improvised licks dovetails with harmonic and rhythmic cues.
Playstation 4, Xbox One
Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Hearts of Stone
Yoshi's Woolly World
Guitar Hero Live
The fall’s other be-a-rock-star shoe drops mid-October, in this case rethinking the medium’s control scheme by introducing a 6-button plastic guitar alongside full-motion video of filmed concertgoers whose reactions change in response to your performance.
iOS, PlayStation 3 and 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and One
Tales of Zestiria
Assassin's Creed Syndicate
After the mess Unity made of Ubisoft’s annualized franchise last year, Syndicate has some serious bridge-rebuilding to do with fans hoping its romp through Victorian London playing as either Jacob or Evie Frye won’t disappoint.
Playstation 4, Xbox One
The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes
Halo 5: Guardians
Need for Speed
Call of Duty: Black Ops III
If Yo-Kai Watch looks like a Pokémon clone, with its collectible critter-concealing spheres and player-partnered skirmishes, that’s because it is, though it inverts some of Pokémon’s tropes, like presenting the Japanese folklore-inspired Yo-Kai as gremlins, and making battles realtime instead of turn-based.
Rise of the Tomb Raider
StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void
Star Wars Battlefront
It may not be open world, story-driven Star Wars game fans wanted, but Star Wars Battlefront has plenty going for it, including Endor, Hoth, Tatooine, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett and cooperative battles you can play either offline (with bots) or online with friends.
PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
