Trials of Mana is an action role-playing video game (RPG) remake of the 25-year old Japanese game, Seiken Densetsu 3. Square Enix did a great job with this remake, and for older gamers, it brings nostalgia.
This player has the option to follow the story of six protagonists inside the game. The quests let them find the Mana Sword as they fight a threat to end the world.
The gameplay allows the player to control three out of the six protagonists. These three characters have their own quests, but in the end, they will have to band together to fight the main antagonist.
Trials of Mana sold more than 80,383 copies in Japan on its launch week for the PlayStation 4. Meanwhile, the game came out as the third best selling game with 70,114 copies sold.

Dotemu released Streets of Rage 4 as a sequel to the Streets of Rage 3. It is set 10 years after the events of the previous game.
The game follows the gameplay of the past three games. It is still a side-scrolling beat-’em-up game. The Nintendo Switch allows four players to play locally and beat the bad guys.
Besides the usual punches and kicks, there are special attacks for each character. The game also features Star Moves that are only available when the characters have collected the corresponding number of Stars.
There are several modes available in the game. A story mode is ready that continues where the story left in the Streets of Rage 3. There is an arcade mode wherein the player must finish the game with a limited number of lives. For local multiplayer fun, there is a battle mode that lets players battle with each other.
Streets of Rage is also available on PC, PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One.
3. Moving Out

Moving Out is for gamers who love simulation games. It is a great couch co-op game and perfect for couples or families.
The game revolves around the player becoming a Furniture Arrangement and Relocation Technician (FART) in the small town of Packmore. There is a solo story mode available.
However, the game gets better once it is played in groups. It will surely bring a huge amount of laughter as the players try to lift and transfer every furniture assigned to them.
As the game progresses, the players gain points that allow them to rank up. Once the rank is enough, more places are unlocked such as frenzied farms and haunted houses.
There is a downloadable content (DLC) available called “The Employees of the Month” for those who want more.
One thing that is disappointing about the game is its lack of multiplayer mode. It is a shame that the developers did not include online co-op unlike Overcooked 2 and other similar games.
