New releases: The Knife of Dunwall blinks into existence

Plus Injustice, Rise of the Hutt Cartel, and Soul Hackers



5:15 PM on 04.15.2013

After a couple of lackluster weeks of new releases, we're spoiled for choice this week. A plethora of games drop, begging for your attention. Time to blow more money.

At the top of the list, for me, is the latest piece of Dishonored DLC, The Knife of Dunwall. Daud, the DLC's protagonist, only appeared in the main game briefly, but he has a central role in the story of Corvo's set-up. I'm really looking forward to seeing Dunwall through his eyes, and learning more about the enigmatic assassin. 

Also arriving this week is the DC fighter, Injustice: Gods Among Us, where a bald man in a mechanical suit can beat up Superman; Pandora's Tower finally gets a US release, long after the rest of us have been able to enjoy it; Star Wars: The Old Republic gets a new premium expansion in the form of Rise of the Hutt Cartel; the new Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner game, Soul Hackers, launches on the 3DS; and the wonderful but tragic Papo & Yo gets a PC port. All this and more comes out this week.
