August was a pretty strong month for games, and September looks to be more of the same. On that note, here are 5 games we’re looking forward to in September. Oh, and we won’t make you click through five pages to look at the entire list.
5 Games We’re Looking Forward to in September
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite
Capcom’s two-on-two fighter Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite takes the series in a new direction, as it focuses more on the Marvel Cinematic Universe for its roster. Rather than use character assists, Infinite uses uses a tag-based combo system that allows players to instantly switch between fighters to form combos. Also new to the game are Infinity Stones, which give the players added abilities mid-battle. We’re looking forward to throwing down as our favorite Marvel and Capcom characters, and also diving into its story mode.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 19, 2017.
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony
School is back in session in NIS America and Spike Chunsoft’s Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. Much like previous entries, a brand new bunch of 16 “Ultimate” students. The game is neatly split between “School Life,” which has players conversing with students, and “Class Trials,” where the same students solve murder mysteries. We’re looking forward to experiencing a new chapter of this unique series, and also trying out the new Lie Bullets in Class Trials.
Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony will come out for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC on September 26, 2017.
Developed and published by Electronic Arts, FIFA 18 includes a continuation of “The Journey” based story mode from last year’s entry. Featuring 52 fully licensed stadiums from 12 countries, along with commentary from Martin Tyler, Alan Smith, Alan McInally, Geoff Shreeves, Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend, the attention to detail to the sport is practically unrivaled. We’re looking forward to “The Journey: Hunter Returns,” and also taking to the field.

Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco are giving the Gran Turismo series a run for its money with their realistic driving simulator Project CARS 2. With 182 cars, 46 tracks (containing 121 layouts), and the new game physics engine called LiveTrack 3.0, the amount of content and attention to detail is staggering. There is also a focus on eSports with this release, complete with an online ranking system, online championships, and improved functionality in matchmaking. We’re looking forward to experiencing the variety of driving conditions both online and off, and also giving the McLaren 720S a test drive.
