This Week's Japanese Game Releases: Marvel's Avengers, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, more

Marvel’s Avengers and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 are the highlights of this week’s Japanese game releases.

Developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal, Marvel’s Avengers follows an original story featuring Kamala Khan, Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor. Campaign missions can be played solo or cooperatively with friends online, and players can unlock skills and new gear to power up their heroes. The narrative will continue to unfold “over multiple years,” with every new hero and region released post-launch available at no additional cost. The PlayStation 4 version (and holiday-due PlayStation 5 version) will receive Spider-Man as an exclusive post-launch playable character in 2021.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 includes full remakes of the 1999-released Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and 2000-released Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 in one collection. It features all the professional skaters, levels, tricks, and modes from the original games, plus more.

Other new releases this week include NBA 2K21, the Xbox One version of Team Ladybug-developed Touhou Project Metroidvania title Touhou Luna Nights, the PC version of Deemo Reborn, and more.
