Let’s see what games are hitting stores this week.

Mario Strikers: Battle League (6/10)

The Mario Strikers series returns after 15 long years with Mario Strikers: Battle League. Play explosive 5v5 football with your favorite mario characters, including Peach, Bowser, Toad, and Luigi. The main tenants of the sport are there – dribbling the ball down the field to score on your opponent’s goal – but you can also use objects, tackles and equipment to gain advantages during the game, not to mention the ‘Hyper Strike, which if successful counts as two goals instead of one. Playing solo, through couch co-op, and through online clubs are all options.

Originally released last fall for most consoles to positive reception, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles is coming to the Nintendo Switch this week.

You will play through the events of the first season of the demon slayer anime as well as infinite train film. A versus mode, both against the CPU and online against other players, is also included.

The Career (6/10)

Sueprmassive Games is back with another playable horror movie in The careerdescribed as a spiritual successor to their 2015 hit Until dawn. The career follows the camp counselors (classic) who must survive a night against “blood-soaked locals and something far more sinister.” Actors Ariel Winter, Justice Smith, Brenda Song and Scream veteran David Arquette star in the game. The career will run for around 7-10 hours and feature a movie mode, which eliminates some of the gameplay elements like QTEs and button mashing to create a more cinematic experience.
