Starlink: Battle for Atlas looks to revitalise the toy-game genre after Disney Infinity and Skylanders bowed out

Starlink: Battle For Atlas merges space flight action with figurines and collectable, modifiable toys, Lego DC Super Villains unleashes a selection of comic-book troublemakers and iconic action adventure Dark Souls gets the Nintendo Switch treatment, while Pivotol on iOS blends Tetris with tile rotation, and Crayola Scoot looks to two genre giants for inspiration.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas
For PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch from Oct 16

Explore seven planets, encounter alien wildlife, and get involved in space combat; use physical, modular toys to create and customise spaceships. Playable in solo or co-op; additional ship parts and pilots can be bought separately from the toys.

Legendarily challenging medieval action game in which players attempt to overcome a sprawling castle world's worth of beasts and monsters in order to banish darkness from the land.

Tile-matching meets Tetris with a twist and plenty of screen shake, accompanied by a pleasing array of colour schemes and background animations.

DC Comics' baddies get an adventure all of their own as they attempt to take over the world. Featuring the Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor, Poison Ivy, Deathstroke, Scarecrow, The Crime Syndicate, and Darkseid.
