@link3710 I think August is more rough month though the paid online service could make September very rough. Either way, at least September has the Xenoblade 2 DLC. That'll be lengthy for sure.

@Grumblevolcano Well, I more meant for people who don't like RPGs. Between Octopath, YS VIII, Shining Resonance, South Park, X2 - Torna, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, Code of Princess EX and to a lesser degree Valkyria Chronicles 4 (and maybe one), more than half the big name titles coming out in this three month period are RPGs. Which is heaven for me, but other people... eh, I'm sure they feel underwhelmed.

EDIT: Not to forget that one of the three big titles for the latter half of the year is an RPG as well, with Pokemon Let's Go.

EDIT 2: Thinking about it, I think we're getting more RPGs this year alone than the Wii U got across it's entire lifespan.

August is Okami HD, Tales of Vesperia, Little Dragon's Cafe, Overcooked 2, Dead Cells, Victor Vran and Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. A solid release month.

September is Mutant League Football, FIFA 19, SNK Heroines, Valkyria Chronicles 4, The World Ends With You and Dragonball Fighter Z. Another solid release month.

October is Mega Man 11, Disgaea 1, Starlink Battle For Altus, NBA 2K19, My Hero One's Justice and Super Mario Party. I'm just in it for Mega Man and Starlink.

November and December are Pokémon Let's Go, Super Smash Bros and all the undated games such as Team Sonic Racing, GRIP, God Wars, Pillars of Eternity 2, Ark Survival Evolved, PixArk, Dark Souls, and whatever else gets announced.

@JaxonH I don't think Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition has been dated beyond "this winter." Unless you know something I don't?

@Ralizah TWEWY and FighterZ are also vague 2018 releases too I think?

@JaxonH Wait when did Dark Souls get a November release date? Have they officially announced this?

@Ralizah
I think I saw the original "August 2008" release date and didn't pay attention to the "2008" part 😁

@FragRed
It didn't.

I'm just assuming anything that doesn't have a date by August, probably isn't going to release in August, September or October. Of course I'm secretly hoping they come out and announce it's releasing in September but at this point, I'm just not counting on it. They haven't even announced the network test which is supposedly going to come before the game releases.

It certainly would be unexpected for Dark Souls to fall from its Summer release window /s

Honestly Im thinking 2019 now. Dont want it taking on Pokemon and Smash or cannabalizing DBZ in September.

@JaxonH I see, that makes sense. I worry that it’s going to go the way of Steep should we not hear a date for 2018. Officially in development but quietly and unofficially cancelled.

@FragRed
That's not gonna happen. Steep never had a playable demo. Furthermore, it was a current gen game which clearly may have some issues scaling down to a less powerful platform.

Dark Souls on Switch is already in a perfectly playable state, as reported by numerous people who played the game. So the work is already done and it's playing good. They are not just going to wad up all that work- basically a 95% finished game, and throw it away. Not to mention it's a last generation game which would not face the same issue of scaling down to less powerful hardware.

Whatever the issue is, it's not something that can't be overcome. Either they purposefully delayed to milk sales of the other versions or they purposefully announced early knowing it would come later to do Nintendo a favor and generate hype for Switch, or they encountered some bugs or exploits that need to be resolved before release. We've seen how that goes with games like Hollow Knight- where they think they're at the finish line but it takes a while to wrap everything up.

I still think the issue regarding Dark Souls Remastered is the paid online service. Look at Monster Hunter's release date for example, it's only a few days before the earliest possible release date of the paid online service.

@Knuckles-Fajita Why do people keep thinking Monster Hunter is an rpg? I would never classify it in such a way.

FighterZ releases September 28. TWEWY, however, still doesn't have a set date.

@PLATINUM7 Well the Japanese version is at September 27... Can kinda safe to assume should be near that date for the English, but who knows.

Because... it is?

You do quests, equip and buy gear, craft things, level up, have RPG ranks and stats....last I checked that's also most of what made Ys Ys, or Xenoblade...an ARPG.

You have almost all of that in modern Call of Duty games, though. And the last Zelda game, for that matter.

Monster Hunter doesn't have a leveling system (well, not in the sense that it affects your stats, anyhow). Progression is tied to equipment upgrades and good, old-fashioned player skill. Which is what keeps it from being an RPG, imo.

I've only seen Monster Hunter in action, never played it myself.

inb4 "You cant judge or comment unless you've played it"

Well I need to make a guess as to what genre it is and its mechanics before I buy it dont I? One has to make a judgement before buying.
